And so it arrived. The day when you forgive and forget. You forgive your country for being dark and gloomy, cold and snowy. You forget you ever needed to wear several layers of clothes, you forget your eyelashes getting white with rime and you forget you didn’t know day from night because it was dark […]

The House God Forgot goes Lunatic Asylum?*

When I was growing up one of my favourite songs was “They’re coming to take me away”, I used to ask my dad to sing it for me – or at least to play it in the old cassette recorder he had in his home office. Last Friday I couldn’t but think it’s become a […]

Confessions of a Bad Blogger

I’m awfully sorry. I’ve been a bad blogger lately. It’s just that I’ve felt like I’ve been stuck on the same page. I could’ve written about my travels. Did that already, on the other blog. You can read here about my wonderful night in Paris a few weeks back. I could’ve written about me cleaning […]

No Winter Lasts Forever

It might not be the +21 degrees I had last week in Brussels. It might not be the spring I’ll have in Paris next. But it’s the best promise of life that I know of. This little blue flower right here… Waiting for Bob the Builder one last time. Exactly eleven [!] months after I […]

Pearls of Wisdom (or The Unnamed Post)

Had an internal struggle with myself regarding what kind of blog post to write today. “Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgiastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter–tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther…. And one fine morning– So we beat […]

On New Beginnings

Continuing on the updates post from Monday, I’ve been thinking about making a Facebook page for Management by Chia. The idea hasn’t moved out of the parking spot yet, mostly because I don’t really know why I would have a Facebook page… Perhaps for posting all those quotes I adore… But then I get cold […]

Spring is Nature’s Way of Saying “Let’s Party!”*

Spring equinox. Vårdagjämning in my language. I can’t think of a more beautiful word in Swedish to be honest. I feel as happy as this tulip. Hopefully my happiness will last longer though, the tulip fell apart the day after I took the pic… Since pretty much forever, the spring equinox has been observed as […]

The Leprechaun Made Me Do It…

Another Monday has arrived. I already uploaded a Paddy Post on the other blog, but couldn’t resist a short one here as well… This picture is from St. Patrick’s Day two years ago, celebrated at an Irish bar in Paris. Can’t remember the name of the place, but it’s basically around the corner from the […]

Birthday vs. Monday

It was a battle of giants. Monday won the first round when the alarm sounded. I don’t think one should have to work when enjoying one’s birthday. But then my mother called and sang for me so that made it 1-1. When arriving at work, I found a bottle of bubbly from my boss – […]

Full Throttle Forward

March kicked in, now I’m busy being busy… Which I really like, am not complaining at all. Well. Except that my back is in a terrible condition after spending too much time pushed down in my old sofa. On top of that I think I need a new bed, my futon is simply too hard, […]

Last Day of Hibernation

Tonight I’m going to cuddle up in all the blankets I can find. I’m going to burn out all half-burned candles from the winter gone by, watch a silly film, and continue reading Shantaram (which I have made some serious progress with this winter – I might be able to finish it. At some point. […]

The Jury Has Reached a Verdict (The Fringe Case)

  Thank you for participating in my little poll, commenting in various forms, and sending pictures and whatnots. It’s been a fun way of both getting ideas on what to do with the do, and surviving the last winter month! Most of you seem to prefer me in a fringe (over 50% in total when […]
