The green spot

Fell into flow. Made an image – and then another one…


Strolling towards summer

who wouldn’t want
to stroll along a lake, a stream
or in the woods

experience the scents, the sounds
fill the eyes with beauty
be fully present there and then

and to get it all at once

The day before yesterday

I went back to the rapeseed field. Just had to see if it was in full bloom. Not quite it was, but almost! And the summer-ish fragrance was there.


But should I get home in time before the rain started pouring down and making me soaking wet? After lunch the clouds had been building up, and the wind was increasing so  at first I didn’t know if I could bike to the field at all. But I wanted to, so I dared myself.


Yes, I did! I managed to bike against the wind, and I did get home again in time. Actually! It didn’t rain at all here, but I saw the shadowy curtains on distans while still on the bike on my way home.
And the weather changed! It got colder and overall more windy after this. So… now it’s more like it should be in May! Spring! Not like in the hottest time of summer.

It’s wonderful!

You know…

there´s light in the darkness

without darkness
there can’t be light
the one can’t be – without the other

this is a universal law

Yes! I did travel to Stockholm! And on that friday morning I woke up with this terrible sore throat. So I went home earlier than planned, and for almost two weeks now I’ve been… well… not felt particularly well. Have spent most of my days in the sofa watching movies. And sleeping.

These last three days though I’ve slowly been getting better, and today I went for a ride on the bike. Two shorter rides, actually. I really enjoyed that.
But I’m still coughing and as it seems, that cough might stay put for some time. It’s a mean virus going around this spring. Many have been ill for several weeks. But as long as I feel well, all is well. And I do feel well now.

This picture I took outside Grand Central station, Stockholm, waiting for my train to arrive.

First warm sunbeams of spring

Maybe not so much dancing in a chair?
But when you’ve had a dreadfully awful and nasty cold for two weeks – sitting outdoors, lifting your face towards the sun, is more than dancing. It’s heavenly!IMG_1702

Way back when…

… just some 9 or 10 weeks ago. Mid day…
Probably everyone is having lunch somewhere… or this is a very small town… or both…

Yeah! Both!
And now the trees are green, and flowers blossom. Summer IS on its way! I sure do hope…


Weekly Photo Challenge: On the way

Cherries on a blue day

Went for a walk this morning. And since I still have the camera I borrowed from church, I thought it would be a good idea to take some photos of my own as well, now when I had the chance to do so. It was a bit chilly outdoors, but oh how beautiful!

She came rolling from the sea…

I KNOW I KNOW! These photos are absolutely LOUSY!
Partly due to the camera, partly to the Photographer.
But mostly to the photographers stupid thinking about making the photos smaller and save space on the hard drive.
Had a PC at that time… (YES! That is explaining enough… )

Luckily the photographer have become at least a little bit wiser since then

This heavy squall with both rain and hail included, occurred almost to the day 6 years ago. I was house sitting a friends summer cottage by the sea, and the clock was close to 9 PM when these clouds appeared as from nowhere. Or maybe like a raging devil from hell riding over the sky…
I mean! It wasn’t raining cats and dogs here! Rather lions and mad grizzly bears!

Odd enough, I can’t recall if there also was thunder, but if so – I reckon I would have caught at least some of the lightnings on at least one or two of the photos – and I have about twice as many still in a folder – but there are no signs at all of any lightning on neither of them. The memory just recalls the huge wet raindrops and the head-pounding oversized hail bullets.

During this spectacular and fascinating hour the rain and hail fall lasted, I also for the first time met the neighbor, a young women, a painter, and we became friends. Kept om seeing each other once in a while, visiting some art museums outside the city, and of course – talked a lot. But then she moved to Stockholm and as often can be – too long distance and very different lives – we lost contact.

And please don’t look at the pictures one by one in the slider. I feel a bit ashamed over the bad quality. Oh! You have done that already, have you… (sighing)

A moment


a moment
suddenly here
and then suddenly gone
just a breath away
a snapshot of God

Spring in February

It just can’t be. Not here. Not even here in the south of Sweden by the west coast!
Sun. Blue sky. Almost no wind. Amazing! +8 degrees Celsius – and at least twice that in the sun.
The air was smooth and caressing against my face. It was like being in heaven!

I just had to go for a short walk at lunchtime. This spring feeling won’t last long. Tomorrow, it’s said from the weather forecast, but then it will be cloudy again and not so warm.
Turning around the corner and there it was. The moment of infinite beauty
One just have to cherish the moments of happiness.
