April Rain

This rain started with soft pattering
A whiff of new green things
Then the wind picked up
And temperature dropped
The downfall comes sideways
Now more smarting pellets
Than soft drop splashes
The clouds darken
Pellets turn to sleet
Big patches of flakes
Swirling in the wind
Melting upon touch
Sunset falls
Flakes turn to ice cold dark drizzle
A typical, but cold April experience
Best looked at from the needed rain perspective
Snug and warm indoors

My favorite place
Browsing for hours space
Ink filled shelf maze

Along Old Town’s busiest street
Fantasy and Science Fiction meet
Wild dreams with care treat

Rows upon rows of books
Customers in all manner of looks
Geeks and nerds in every nook

Kind magic filled atmosphere
All welcome however queer
There whenever the world feels to severe

My favorite store
Filled to the rafters with strange lore
Lets inspired creativity soar

My second poem for Global Poetry Writing Month, inspired by today’s prompt. To write a poem about a specific place – a particular house or store or school or office. So I choose my favorite store in Stockholm. Which also happens to be one of the best places I ever worked.

Insight Timer – app review — Mrs Delight

I downloaded this app because it was recommended in my Compassion Focused Therapy. And because I realized I needed help and guiding if I were ever to learn mindfulness and meditation properly. That’s also when I started my intense meditations. For about a week I used the app without an account all together. Which is […]

Insight Timer – app review — Mrs Delight

I decided it was time to reboot my other blog, which I started for writing reviews (mostly) in English, and then more or less abandoned because that was not the kind of writing I needed. Just the kind I dared to share with the world.

Now I know there are kind supportive people out there, who amazingly like what I write. Something that fills my heart with gratitude!

Thank you all! ❤️

Weekend special – Stockholm staycation

As you might have guessed by Fridays post. It was adventure time.
Playing tourists in our own town. Not wasting time on travel.
Mr Delight had booked a favorite hotel for two nights.
Tickets for Richie Hawtin at Berns secured months ago.
An interesting bar in old town to visit.
Mattias Dahlgren restaurant Rutabaga, finally.
Sleeping late, rambling trough town, letting our fancy steer.
No news, no screens, no social media.
Talking, being together, reconnecting, sharing.
Still, the future is never an easy subject.
So make time and space for those conversations. Regularly!

A weekend well spent. That left me with reviews to write, photos to sort trough, a list of ideas for future posts (or other writing projects).

So here’s a first taste of what to do on weekend in Stockholm.
