Is it rain or is it snow? It is a mix tumbling down outside the window. I don't have any desire to go out in this weather and although I've started a new health regime where I challenge myself to get outside at least 30 minutes a day, I think today will be one of my resting days this week. Instead I have dug into writing out one of many patterns that has been neglected for too long. One promise I have made to myself is to finish all my patterns and projects I've started through the years. I want to become a Doer and not just a Starter.
It is nice to sit here inside in the warmth with a hot coffee and new baked gingerbread loaf as a snack. I listen to Swedish Radio and I can almost believe I am in Sweden for the moment. The language is comforting, even the traffic reports with its jingle feels like home. I think that no matter how many years I will live my life in another country, I will always remain Swedish in my heart.
Well, lets finish this pattern. Text editing today, step-by-step photos tomorrow. If the light allows. In winter it is always about the light. Searching it. Finding it. Chasing it. Catching it.
PS I would like to THANK YOU all for your precious comments on yesterday's post. Yesterday was a very dark day and hearing your advice and stories about how to handle this tragedy has been very helpful. Even though I couldn't be there at the ceremony, I will write my friend a letter and be there for her whenever she needs me. I might be of better use as a friend in a few weeks from now when shock and turbulence of all the practical actions has ended. So THANK YOU, for helping me. Guiding me. Listening to me. And just being there.
