Poem: Sleeping with Ghosts

Content warning: death, suicide, transphobia This is the text I was trying to write for Transgender Day of Rememberance, but I couldn’t find the words then. Sleeping with ghosts I have a head full of ghostsAnd the air I breath is full of ghosts.Do you not see? Can you not hear?Everywhere I go, they goFortsätt läsa ”Poem: Sleeping with Ghosts”

Happy Winter Solstice!

Now the longest night of the year has begun. While Sunna was still visible in the sky, I made a small offering of herbal tea and one of the cookies I made especially for the occasion, using the same recipe I did a few days ago. I just substituted the cacao for 0.5 dl (0.2Fortsätt läsa ”Happy Winter Solstice!”

Obsessed with this song: Raven brings runes

The Nordic Animism channel (which you should definitely follow!) released a music video on Sunday. Raven brings runes is the result of the collaborations between different artists and speaks of the connection between humans and humanity and nature. Such an important message in our time:

Knowing Freya, part 12: Freya and Ragnarök

Ragnarök, Old Norse for ‘the Doom of the Gods’. Undoubtedly the most famous event described in Norse mythology.

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. I’ve got some editing and additional proofreading to do before it is ready to be sent to publishers and literaryFortsätt läsa ”It is done!”

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. Today the sun shines and the cherry trees blossom above me,as I lay in the park,the one by the playground,below that hill where the drug dealers sit in a old broken sofaFortsätt läsa ”Son of Jord and Njord”

Many times in the past, I’d tried to lose weight. I’d do the counting calories thing and even fasted. I’d lose a little bitFortsätt läsa ”Life and health”

So close!

I have only one chapter left before I’ve finished writing the crime novel I’ve been working on for over a year and a half. The book will be twenty chapters and about 250 A4 pages long. I was aiming for 300 pages but I don’t think I can stretch the plot any more without fillingFortsätt läsa ”So close!”

Renewal

I finally had my gallbladder removed yesterday and the operation went well. I wasn’t particularly nervous prior to it since I’ve had a number of health issues through my life that have required surgery, and I know the routine pretty well by now. The only thing that worried me was whether I was going toFortsätt läsa ”Renewal”

A Free Mind

I am nowhere-manNot here-manI’ve longed walked through empty streets at nightWhen the city sleepsAnd the people cannot see me In the daylight,I speak the words they put in my mouth,I dance the steps they tell me to dance,I smile when they do and I frown when they do.But do they know I’ve lost my mind?Fortsätt läsa ”A Free Mind”
