I read, listen and watch. I think a lot and opinions and ideas take form. I have good conversations with the people around me. Then I come here to get some of it out, put my thoughts down into words. I stare at the blank page and nothing happens.
Screens. I feel sick of them, and I feel like I don’t care. About getting my thoughts out, about filling this space with more posts. My presence on internet feels insignificant. Which, with my line of work, is not how I should feel. But I just want to explore the world, roam around, actually meet with people and talk.
That’s why I am so excited that I am having my first workshop soon. I will get to travel in Sweden, spend a few days in a really nice location and meet with people to talk about my passion of storytelling, photography and close by adventures. Together with 10 participants I will spend an early weekend in June in the forests outside of Furudal outside Rättvik, in collaboration with Visit Dalarna. I will be tell my story and teaching what I know to give people the tools to tell theirs.
While all of this is really exciting, and I feel the need to be with people and converse – I also know that I really like this space, my little bubble on internet. I cherish the connection I have with those of you that read what I have to say, and that take time to comment and be a part of the conversation. I don’t know why I feel so stuck.
I’ve made some great work-related posts lately, but those genuine, personal journal entries… They’re hard to get out. Maybe I need a vacation of some sorts.
Spring is definitely helping with my mood. The evenings are warm and bright, we play boardgames, enjoy good beer and my love plays music on the couch. The sunsets are golden and life is good.
Luckily, Easter break is here, and while I do not care for the holiday it’s nice that Dan gets some time off work. Tomorrow we hop on a train to go down south. We’ll spend a week in Borås and Gothenburg and it will be nice to show him a different part of Sweden and parts of my life before he met me. Both those cities are quite lovely to spend time in during spring and I cannot wait to enjoy the warmth, BBQ in my parents backyard, the smell of all the flowers and of course to meet my friends that live there!
Bird in Hand by Stigbergets brewery is my new favourite beer! I’m excited to visit their bar when we go to Gothenburg!
