Good news! Photos available!

 I briefly mentioned there are 12 gig of photos and movies from the Lyon with surroundings trip. NOW I HAVE THEM ALL!!! Jérémy simply gave me a flop disk à 20 gig which I carried home in the rain, and now follows the 50/50 boring/fun part of going through every single photo taken. Relax, stay tuned, and I will work on the editorial magic.

A photo of my dreams

Five years! It took to find a good spot to realize this photo idea.
The plant is rapeseed, if you didn't know, and if you did - have you noticed the smell? Nothing like expected. Strong!
Another photo idea: bringing friends who also wear yellow.
Colleague who agreed to wander out to these fields and be the photographer is from southern Sweden and happens to know that if you see these fields from above, it is even more beautiful.
Soon in a kitchen near you.

About painting

Mildly put: it's not my favourite, but people who came to my house in Spain mostly liked it. It hung on the living room wall and didn't take long to paint. Paula said it's beautiful, and Cristina got it when I left - she wanted to hang it up in her new home. In the corner, the print of a photo I took outside Sturehof castle in Sweden, south of Stockholm. 

A few years ago, I randomly walked into the office of a colleague and made a comment about a painting on the wall. Either it was missing or it was something about the colour. He said he was thinking about changing it, and suddenly I had offered him to paint one and he kind of placed an order. We didn't get beyond the point when he sent me some inspiration links and I didn't find enough commitment for a sports painting, which is what he wanted, but though it stayed there, it's a fun memory. Some day, I shall take up the painting more.

And now I am on to a painting of me. It would be nice to have something which is not a photo. I would hang it on the wall, or keep it in a place where I could pick it up from time to time. I found a young woman who's style I like, and we are discussing it.

"I am preparing a date for you"

A friend has localised a guy and is of the rather convinced opinion that he and I could be a good match. Evidence of this possibility is demonstrated through different pieces of information sent as messages during the past two months, which so far has only been a delight. 

Nor he, nor I have seen photos of each other, which is for the better. We will get to meet by the end of May, in a European city, and we share at least one interest: kayaking. Mine is mild, practiced about twice a year and focused on the views kayaking gives; he teaches it and seems more dedicated. Still, a thing in common.

I am very curious about this! And my friend veeery excited.

White yarn for dinner

Testing new foods is one of my goals. Glass noodles, hello! Welcome after the long journey from China. Finally we get to meet.
You are... unbreakable? Have to be cut apart? Why are you not like pasta?

You are transparent? Why? The beans that you are made of are not.

You don't need boiling water? Just to have a bit of rest in warmed up water for like 3-5 minutes? And you prefer to be in "salads", not other kinds of dishes, internet says? Not ok to spread rumors like that.

You are very good friends with soy sauce, carrots, zucchini and some would also say coriander, leek and lime - check.

Four more rounds of cooking and we will probably get along very well!

Since I saw you, I can't stop thinking about you

We would be a perfect fit. Have fun on beaches, take long walks in the summer, discover new places, visit new museums, travel - in rain, during gazing sun, and your touch would always be so soft.

Dear yellow shoe on sale, don't let my expectations down.

A photoshoot in Vasaparken

 When it suddenly was warm after six and I had had a LOVELY pizza from The Italian brothers and divine cheesecake (!) - I don't even like cheesecake - a dear friend came around with a camera. 
 While waiting for his meeting to end, I had strategically selected a blooming tree to be near. When life is beautiful, be right next to it.
 "What's with the cup?" "It's just water, I don't drink coffee", I answered, and posed like the Statue of Liberty the very next second.
