i highly recommend drawing strawberries. on a friday. right before the start of a 3 day weekend.
i’ll be spending lots of time in stockholm in the coming weeks. also a rare and special opportunity to visit the west coast of sweden has arisen thanks to dear ingrid. if you were in the remains of the day class in the early years, you might remember those houses i posted of class members who lived on foreign shores…ingrid was one of them!
like many swedes she spends time at her island home in the summer.
i’m going to zip across the swedish countryside in a train. she said:
I WILL PICK YOU UP IN THE BOAT FROM THE STATION
then she strung these 4 words together:
BOATRIDES IN THE EVENINGS
i fainted momentarily, but when i came to i immediately went to the internet train depot and bought my tickets. i find that when an invitation is issued one must act swiftly before it can be revoked.
you might remember (on my last sabbatical) when i was in the netherlands, the lovely angeline invited me to her home and made me lunch. that post is HERE.
somehow i finagled another invitation for another adventure.
i’m getting good at this.
