A new writing spot

The Swedish summer is painfully short and rainier that in a lot of other places. So, every chance I get to enjoy the sunshine while it last, I take. That’s why I love to sit in the forest, by the sea or in public parks and write under the sun. I thought I knew allFortsätt läsa ”A new writing spot”

This tiny man with a big white beard and a pointy hat is a beloved figure in Scandinavian folklore. In modern times, we mostlyFortsätt läsa ”The Yule Tomte: A Memory of Ancestor Veneration”

A Sol’s Day in the Sun

The summer in Sweden is painfully short so it bums me out that I will have to spend most of it at work. I like my job but I prefer being out in the sun. So, I’m making sure to spend so much time as I can in nature on Sundays since it’s the onlyFortsätt läsa ”A Sol’s Day in the Sun”
