Stockholm har fått en bokmässa

7-9 april anordnades Street Ord & text på Streetmarknaden. Det är ett evenemang som kommer återkomma två gånger om året, och arrangörerna hoppas att det ska kunna utveckla sig till Stockholms svar på Göteborgs bokmässa. Jag lyssnade på många intressanta författare, poeter och musiker. Några av dem finns med i vloggen här ovan (134 MB […]

Fullspäckad helg

Fullspäckad helg

I helgen hade jag lyxproblem – massor av intressanta och roliga saker att göra, men de krockade tyvärr. Streetmarknaden hade Ord & text-festival med intressanta författare fredag-söndag, Moderna museet hade seminarium om datorkonst på lördagen och hade bjudit in Wireds bloggare Bruce Sterling (se Erik Stattins inlägg), samtidigt som Rosemari hade kallat till ett första […]

Nice chat with Jane

Nice chat with Jane

Today I met Jane Morén after work for a nice chat and a beer. Jane was my first contact with the poetry slam world. In 2000 I interviewed her about her regular poetry event in Stockholm – Ordtrå – for the Poetry Wall. It was a magic evening at Jonathan’s Place, one of the few […]

Early morning at the tram stop

Early morning at the tram stop

I woke up at 4 AM this morning, unable to go back to sleep. Thoughts of texts and departures, my future writing and how to find a natural time and place for it, kept me awake. I am bad at goodbyes, and it’s a bit sad to part from this writing group. We’ve got to […]

This and that

• December 2, 2005 • Comments (0)

Today has been a very slow day at work. The things I need to get done before the weekend cannot be done until I get the material from the paper edition, and the material will come late. A bit frustrating. I’m not feeling quite well. K has been home with a cold a few days, […]

Cool handbags for sale

I’m selling a couple of my corset handbags at Tradera, along with some cell phone blinking tinklets of Eeyore and Hello Kitty. So far the bids are very low, so if you’re interested, this is your chance. :) Check out my auctions here. They end between Oct. 28 and 30. That’s quite enough of shameless […]

Mini-break coming up

• October 9, 2005 • Comments (0)

A flu of some kind is creating quite a problem at work. A lot of people are home ill, and it’s hard to find replacements. I was supposed to work the morning shift Friday, replacing a replacement, but got ill myself. It’s the sign that autumn is really here, I guess, though the weather has […]

Hot tub

Every morning should start with a warm nice bath. I feel refreshed. But still not quite well. K has been home for a few days with an aching head, and he heard from a friend that it’s a virus spreading right now. Hope I don’t get it. It’s been a while. I’ve been meaning to […]

No longer afraid of happiness

• September 16, 2005 • Comments (0)

It could be simple to find happiness if your demands are low. To sleep a whole night and wake up when you are fully rested, that is a gift. After working the morning shift for four days I’m starting to think you could get happy just from experiencing that. I used to say that it […]

Infrequent updates

• September 7, 2005 • Comments (0)

These past few weeks I haven’t had much to say, or time to say it. That’s why my blogging’s been suffering. This fall will be one of studies and work, so I might seem a bit boring, but bare with me. It’s an act of will to focus, something I must try to do, try […]

Dimmed lights, flickering flames

• August 29, 2005 • Comments (0)

I lit seven lanterns and comforted myself into my favourite chair watched them flicker with the autumn winds reaching in through the balcony glass sipping Martini Bianco I let the night sing to me a blue and rusty song about a summer gone by and the colder times ahead and I sang back quietly reaching […]

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 […]
