It is done!

Yesterday, I wrote the last words to the novel I’ve been writing. Finishing the last chapter took a bit more time than I expected but it also ended up being longer than I originally planned.

Son of Jord and Njord

Yesterday I bought a soap with scent of the seaIt’s got real pieces of kelp in it and it feels like such luxury.

On the 25th of this month, it will have been a year since I started this blog.

The Gift of Simplicity

I’ve been planning on writing more on my semi-monastic path but I haven’t known quite where to start. Truth be told, most days it really isn’t that interesting. I say my morning prayer and oath, write while sitting on the tram to work, work most of the day, write some more on the ride home,Fortsätt läsa ”The Gift of Simplicity”
