In the footsteps of Blomkvist and Salander

The holidays are over, the light will return but winter is only getting started. A good time to explore a fun side project like visiting some movie locations. It’s not like the Swedish countryside is anything like New York City where you can walk from one movie into the other,...

Wednesday Wanderings, a muddy walk

So far, the most gloriously sunny day of December, with at least one minute of sunlight! :-) We squeezed this beautiful walk up the hills in between sunrise and sunset on the shortest day of the year. What a slippery challenge it was to drag ourselves up the slope- or as...

Wednesday Wanderings

I wish I could share not only a few photographs of our walk but also the soft smell of pine trees in foggy air and the sound of our boots on soft snow. Almost all leaves are gone, just as the autumn colors. What remains in a moody palette of grays...

Wednesday Wanderings (31)

All of a sudden summer was here. Out of nowhere, it seemed after a spring dominated by snow and hail. Sometimes it felt like summer would just skip a year. Avoiding Sweden because of COVID-19 perhaps. But no, after waiting so long, the days got crazy long with almost 24/7 sunlight...

Spring is here, is it?

Only a few weeks ago I was still playing with the ice in that first warm sun of the new year. The movement of melting ice floating on the deep blue surface is hypnotizing and the sounds unique. Every day since there is a bit more of spring taking over....

Wednesday Wanderings (29)

  We wander, driven by a curious fire inside of us hunted by the musts and do's, escaping in a moment of oblivion. The sun was flickering playing hide and seek with light blue clouds flying flowers spreading color. We lay down close to the water until time and times were done wispering in each others ear. ...

Kitty Crowther, Uppsala

With sleepy eyes, I checked my phone that morning. Just before getting out of bed and getting started with the day. We already had plans, but suddenly I saw an Instagram post by Kitty Crowther, mentioning not only the exhibition in Uppsala but also a lecture in English! Holy morning...
