  • ‘THE PENDING STATE OF EXPECTING’

    ‘THE PENDING STATE OF EXPECTING’

    I’m writing this in a haze. A haze from sleepiness because now I’m a day overdue, and my body and mind have been ready day and night for weeks, for the wonder growing inside me to enter into this world.  A haze from marvel, worry, bliss, doubt, and hopefulness, all mixed up into one foggy existence about how…

  • ‘THE INCONGRUITY’ – a reflection about our environmental paradox

    ‘THE INCONGRUITY’ – a reflection about our environmental paradox

    It hits me all the time. It hits me when I’m in the forest and see that shiny container sticking out from the green moss. Or when at the seaside and that garbage bag is waving back and forth between the sand and the water. Back and forth. Back and forth… Like that plastic, glass, or metal ever would decompose. It strikes…

    South of Göteborg (Gothenburg) is a nature reserve we drive by each time we go visit my parents-in-law.
