Oh, look! There’s a wooden floor underneath!

• August 18, 2005 • Comments (0)

It took three days, but now most of the mess in our apartment has turned in to some kind of organized chaos, most of it in boxes in the guest bedroom and in K’s room. I’m calling it the guest bedroom because the presence of a bed in there sort of turns it into something […]

To finish a project

To finish a project

Finally! Today I finished the guide on Malta I have been working on (more or less actively) since I went there in May. It feels good, and yet a bit scary. Did I omit something? Could I have chosen better photos? I’m not very good at finishing stuff. Taking up the work on the guide […]

Great Pride week

Since I had the week off, I thought I’d for once buy a ticket for the Stockholm Pride festival, which has a lot of good concerts. It’s been a great party week, with schlager/eurovision artists, big Swedish artists, drag shows, and a lot of great people. Saturday was the day of the Pride parade through […]

Pooped after a long working shift

• July 31, 2005 • Comments (0)

Five days, 55 working hours, getting up at 5 in the morning every day. But now they are done and I have nine (9!!) days off, with no more plans than to clear up some of the mess at home and to do some writing (oh, well, and to finish the Malta guide. Shush!). My […]

Question

• July 23, 2005 • Comments (0)

I wanted to write something. There was something I wanted to express, and express in my own way. It seemed important, somehow. Then the words started coming and they weren’t mine, or, not completely. Is it better to keep you hand still than to be a chameleon writer? Dancer in the Dark on tv. I […]

Fridhem translates into peace + home

• July 21, 2005 • Comments (0)

The days are intense, the evenings the same. I’m writing a lot, which is good, but it’s exhausting. I’ve never slept in better beds away from home, though, and the food is excellent, though admittedly there’s a bit too much of it. Fridhem is like an oasis, a bubble in which to float for a […]

smoothe summer evening budvar in hand I listen to circus drums beating rhythmically with my breaths and thoughts everyone should have a circus outside their window

Doing laundry in the heat

Doing laundry in the heat

It’s 30 C in the shade. What was I thinking turning today into a day for doing laundry? Phew. Well, I’m almost done. Just one more round to the laundry room-turned-hell hole. There’s a Circus tent outside my window. Some Danish cirkus has put it up, and their performance is tomorrow. I’m not a great […]

The Ungelt Jazz and Blues Club

• July 5, 2005 • Comments (0)

The music is loud, too loud for me to want to pay the 200 CZK it costs to get into the room where the band is playing, almost too loud in here, in the bar, where you get in for free. The wine costs 38 CZK a glass, about a dollar and a half. You […]

A rainy day in Prague

• July 5, 2005 • Comments (0)

It´s a rainy day in Prague, one of many this week. The Czech capital is like a moody mistress, and I haven´t learned the tricks to please her. When we got here, me and my mom, last Wednesday, we were greeted by three days of rain. Then the sun broke through and we got hot […]

Turning Skriva.net into a blog on writing

• June 26, 2005 • Comments (0)

After six years as a writing site connected to my mailinglists on writing, I am turning Skriva.net into a blog. It’ll focus on writing and the creative process. Apart from myself, Sofie will also be writing in it. Eventually we might invite more writers. I’m thinking a lot about creative writing right now (without actually […]
