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

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 […]

Liverpool

The Liverpool trip turned out really well. Well organized, nice people, interesting discussions and a good amount of writing. We stayed at the International Inn, a hostel of almost Swedish quality with nice sturdy wooden bunk beds. We got the whole dorm to ourself (six beds, five people) apart from the last night when one […]

78 timmars smärta

• January 27, 2005 • Comments (0)

Kivutar Jag andas flammande lågor obönhörligt spetsigt pulserande Famlar efter ord och vilja Du är allt jag ser och talar Jag vill skrika så ljusen slocknar och himlen faller ner Måste känna något annat något mer något mildare Får inte suddas ut och gå upp i dig Varje tillkämpad gnistrande skärpa kuvar du Origo Tillbaka […]

E-zine work, much delayed

• January 22, 2005 • Comments (0)

Today I really really need to get to work with the e-zine. I’ve been postponing it for too long, and then when I meant to get started the tsunami disaster struck, and I had to work covering that instead. And then, from working too much, I got problems with my arms and shoulders. The mouse […]

Insanity vs. the creative genious

I have watched tv2 all evening, where they had a thematic evening on madness/mental illness, especially madness and creativity. The topic is one I have spent much time pondering on, together with other states of heightened creativity, and sources for inspiration for alternative perspectives (drugs, physical illness, near death experiences etc). The subject was touched […]
