Reflecting on 1 year of Son of Freya

On the 25th of this month, it will have been a year since I started this blog. This has spurred me to take a moment and reflect on what has happened since then in regards to my spiritual journey and my writing. When it comes to my spiritual life, I can see that two mainFortsätt läsa ”Reflecting on 1 year of Son of Freya”

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”

A Song for Sunna

I went and had another walk by the sea today. The sun was already low when I came to the shore at around 2 p.m. and soon I found myself whispering an improvised tune to Sunna. Later, I wrote the words down and added a few extra verses. The poem is in Swedish, which isFortsätt läsa ”A Song for Sunna”

Inspiration…

… works in mysterious ways. It all started in the beginning of last week when I took my daily post-work nap and dreamt of a book project I’d abandoned years ago. Back then, I was a very different person and the thing that changed me happened while I was writing the book. The message IFortsätt läsa ”Inspiration…”

Late night doodling

I’ve never been good at drawing but I often feel compelled to draw characters and scenes from the things I’m writing. Most of the time, these doodles don’t make sense to anyone but me. I keep them really for myself, as a sort of writing diary/idea catalogue. Often, I’ve grown strangely attached to many ofFortsätt läsa ”Late night doodling”

A goal reached and a project coming

So, there are two weeks left in this beautiful, spooky month of October. I look back at it and to be honest, I haven’t been as productive as I had hoped. But I did finish another chapter on my novel yesterday. I celebrated the way I usually do: with some ice cream. I hope toFortsätt läsa ”A goal reached and a project coming”

Here is the word dragon

I’d been thinking about buying a new laptop for probably a year and a half. The one I had kept getting slower and slower but I put up with it because I’m the type of person who only buys new stuff when I really need it. But in the last months, my old laptop wasFortsätt läsa ”Here is the word dragon”

An equation for happiness

The other day I saw a man wearing a shirt that said, in Swedish: Inga förhoppningar, inga besvikelser. Which translates to ‘No hopes, no disappointments’. I laughed to myself when I read it because, as Homer Simpson so eloquently puts it, ‘it’s funny ‘cause it’s true’. People have often called me a pessimist but it’sFortsätt läsa ”An equation for happiness”

Writer’s snack: Palitaw

If you know me, you know I love fast and easy recipes. It’s not that I’m lazy or don’t have time, it’s just that I enjoy food I can make quickly and then sit down and eat it while I write. Over the years, I’ve amassed quite a few such recipes but I still loveFortsätt läsa ”Writer’s snack: Palitaw”

Monday morning in September

Early morning, 4 a.m.The streets are empty,Except for me and the birds.A handful of sparrows are seaking treasures in a pile of vomit.I wonder if my boss is already up at this hour. At the tram stop, I look around carefully. I haven’t been robbed yet, but I also make sure to always wear myFortsätt läsa ”Monday morning in September”
