It's the worker's day tomorrow. And there will obviously be some political marches, speeches and such.
I will attend a party tonight and tomorrow I will enjoy Valborg lunch with friends.
They have promised fantastic weather so a little work in the garden is also scheduled.
Here is Laleh singing Vårens första dag (the first day of spring). It is my powersong, I need to listen to it loud and jump!!!!
Whatever you are celebrating, enjoy!

The photograph above I picked up yesterday at the charityshop. I have looked at it several times in the shop and now I thought maybe she would like to live with me;) I believe a dog has loved her, there are clearly small marks and they look like teeth.
I found this poem, it is so touching.
Wild geese by Mary Oliver, enjoy!
You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.
Tell me about your despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain are moving across the landscapes, over the prairies and the deep trees, the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air, are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting --
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
The Straight Story, well, that's about it really. I really hated Twin Peaks...I don't think I watched a single episode as it was too scary for me. Before cykling past the charityshop I had a long lunch meeting at a vegan restaurant. My pick. Everyone loved it. The food was amazing, the staff the kindest and the location just so charming. I am now the happy owner of a new sewingmachine. The repairguy called and said the engine and a few useful parts of my former machine were so totally used and would cost me a fortune to have replaced, he suggested I invest in a new machine. So I did. Thank you all for your support! Good night sweet people!

Susanna Leinonen Company. We worked together end of 90's and it has been a thrill to follow her work since and a thrill to meet up. We only chatted for a short while tonight after the performance. I could easily have stayed on tonight. It was once again such a fantastic experience. I do hope you get a chance to see her work. I have been listening to this. I cannot put my finger on what it is, but I need to hear it over and over.
