To have a healthy love relationship, I must have the guts to believe in my … Continue reading Love and trust.
Very much happens by chance or at random. Admittedly, the right conditions need to prevail, but chance mostly has a big impact. Being lucky seems necessary! When it comes to love, I think we create the conditions ourselves. Brusquely expressed, I lost faith in love about six months ago. I was well on my way … Continue reading Chance and love.
There is saying “Treat others the way you want to be treated”. In love relations this seems safe and easy, and you will probably get what you want in return. But imagine if you act completely unaware of the other's wishes. Then you might become too selfish, simply a jerk. No one wants to be like that, … Continue reading The language of love
In the Swedish everyday language there are several words for love, kind of reflecting the different stages of the “love relation process”. The first stage, when we are falling in love, is called “förälskad” and may translate into English as “enamoured”, or “amorous”, or simply “in love with”. I am into research and maybe I … Continue reading Falling in love or enamoured hope!
It is really not sustainable to give up the belief in love. I am absolutely convinced that love even can last a long time. The vast majority of my friends do live with love in long-term relationships. Yes, I know it may not always have been a dance on roses, but still, they stick together … Continue reading Sustainable love
I find love and expectations difficult and it doesn’t seem to get easier with age. I am a romantic and think that practical or comfortable love is boring, but what are realistic expectations? Does it mean I can forget a great love, forget that person who makes it feel like bumblebees are buzzing in my … Continue reading Love and expectations.
In the autumn it is easy to feel sadness, yet many people like the autumn. Nature changes color and the air becomes cold and clear. It gets dark in the evenings and you can crawl up on the couch under a blanket, and light candles. It's cozy! Even if you have everything important in life, … Continue reading Autumn Melancholy!
The fourth season with my boat is over. It's been a great boating season, the Stockholm archipelago is really amazing and discovering it by motorboat suits me perfectly. The boat has everything needed for a holiday and with a reasonably large crew you have comfort. With just two on board, it is pure luxury! It … Continue reading The winter rest has begun.

Adam, my youngest son used to tell me I was thinking too much. Nowadays he is also a thinker. I wonder if it is bad to think too much. What is too much? Does it apply to all kinds of thoughts? Isn't thinking a human tool that generally is far too little used? Okay, I … Continue reading I think, that’s how I am!
We live in a time of security mania. Taking it safe before the uncertain seems to be an increasingly common mantra. But, putting yourself at risk does not necessarily have to be fatal. Lack of trust in a relationship can lead to an awkward feeling of insecurity. But, in order to build trust, we need … Continue reading Fear is the new safe!
Nights can be scary. You might feel alone and left out to dangerous and alien beings. In the archipelago, on the other hand, at night there is a calm tranquility and you never feel alone. You feel like part of nature and the nature takes care of and protects you. We are all part of … Continue reading Comforting archipelago nights
Trust and confidence are essential in close relations with love. Consider the many oddities we humans are devoted to in order to avoid closeness. Do you know the expression "alone is strong"? What a nonsense! Alone is afraid of intimacy. The other day I had the confidence to watch the marina. In the boat club … Continue reading Trust and confidence
The need for shopping malls in the Stockholm area is met, the need for housing is not. In 1995, the situation was quite different when a large car sales firm's premises were transformed into Stinsen's shopping center. It was even expanded and reopened in 2009, and the trade flourished. Now, all but a few shops … Continue reading New times, new needs!
Min far är död. Med tanke på hur han levde sitt liv blev han gammal. Arvet är viktigt för livslängden men man måste troligen även ta hand om sig. Vad jag vet så är det lite oklart vilket arv jag har. Farfar drack för mycket och morfar dog i det finska fortsättningskriget. Även min far … Continue reading Till minne – In memory!
Bilden jag valde allra först är den av flickan som satt på sin mammas axlar under körsbärsträden i Kungsträdgården i Stockholm. Jag tycker det är svårt att ta bilder av okänt folk. Man tränger sig liksom på! Men där stod jag med kameran på magen och plötsligt såg jag henne. Hon verkligen upplevde blommorna och … Continue reading Bilden jag valde allra först – The photo I choose first
