Going north

Storsjöyran is over for this year. Yesterday we watched the grande finale with the president’s speach on Stortorget. The county of Jämtland has proclaimed itself a republic, so this tradition is especially dear to the Jämts, who would prefer not to be a part of Sweden. Some more seriosly so than others.

Four from the Stockholm bunch met for a short crony meeting at Mosebacke tonight. Gitta joined in for the first time. We did a couple of quick workshops, which was good. I felt I got some flow back.

Listening to Painting it Red, The Beautiful South’s new album. Puts me in a good mood…. it’s one of their better ones, I think. I love the lyrics. And their voices are great, too. P and I have finally decided where to go over Xmas (maybe…). :-) Probably it will be Malta and Italy (if […]
