Our World: Lucia Edition

December 13 is Lucia here in Scandinavia. It's a time when choirs carry candles and the Lucias wear candles in their hair and they all sing like angels while the snow falls softly outside.

Lucia is about bringing the light into the darkness and spreading warmth and love. (The world needs all the light and goodness it can get.)

Spring flowers have bloomed; and the apple blossom on the trees has blown off in a carpet of petals.

Enjoy a lovely week!

In the words of Shakespeare: "Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May."

Our World: 25 January 2016

I was away filming in southern Sweden and stayed overnight in a hotel in a charming town called Kalmar. In the middle of the main square, there was a beautiful church and some signposts. The one to right points to a swimming pool called Cat Butt. (Someone had a sense of humour!)
