Wonderful Easter

The long weekend is over. It came and went. Time is fascinating. It is seconds and minutes. 60 seconds per minute for 24 hours a day. Time is constant. But yet it feel so inconsistent. It can be very slow. And very fast.

Five minutes is an eternity when you stand in the rain waiting for the bus at the bus stop and a lovely spring-like four-day long weekend can feel like two seconds.

Easter Eve was spent with my grandmother. We had a lovely day feasting on cake and sweets. It was a beautiful early spring day. If this keeps up soon things will start to blossom and bring back colour to nature again.

When I walked in Lidingö Centrum to  buy our cake,  I was like a drug addict craving the sunlight that flooded the square . Its bright light and warm soothing rays on my cheeks started an endorphine rush in my body that left me  just wanting more and more and more of that warmth and light.

At this time of the year I worship the sun. Bless us for our own life-giving star in our galaxy at the exact perfect distance making us all possible.

How was your Easter weekend?

Happy Easter

I start this entry by wishing you a Happy Easter since it is Maundy Thursday when you read this. 🙂

I am looking forward to a long weekend. Four wonderful days off. I will be taking a photo walk, and possibly planning to document my Saturday for the blog some way. Not that anything special is going on but for fun. I will visit my grandmother on Easter Eve so will spend the day with her. So maybe you will get to meet my grandmother. How about that?

I haven’t decided what exactly we will do yet. If we just spend the day together at her place or if we go out for a car ride somewhere. All I know is that we will have a good day, granny and I. ❤ She is the best mormor (maternal grandmother) in the world even when memory is failing her and things get confusing at the age of 93.

I have always been really close to my grandparents on both sides. I guess that is why I have always loved being around ”old” people. I feel safe around them. They are like potential extra grandparents all of them. 🙂

I feel lucky that I got to have all my grandparents in my life until I was 14 when my farfar (paternal granfather) died. Farmor died 1994 if I remember correctly. Morfar I think died 2002. Now I have only mormor left so she is a very special person in my life. We need to spend all the time we can together because at 93 she won’t be around forever. <3.

Grandparents are special, aren’t they?




Thank god for Easter

Easter holiday is approaching. A four-day leave from work. Yay.

I can’t wait, because I want to take my camera out again. It has been too long now. My archive of new photos is empty so I have no photos to show in the blog either. I have been so busy lately that I haven’t even been able to get out on photo walks.

That will definitely happen this Easter. Keep your fingers crossed there will be some day with nicer photo weather over the holiday.

I don’t know about you – but I often lose inspiration a bit this time of the year when it comes to taking pictures. Because now I am just waiting for spring when nature displays some colour again and that first sheer budding green that glows almost transparent in the sunlight. Little creeks running free again after the ice has broken. Hepaticas and anemones flooding the green grass with fields of blue and white mixed with the dandelions  shinging like hundred yellow suns.

Spring, come!
