August 2019 Digest & Bookmarks
It’s Saturday and I’m sick in bed with my notebook on my lap. Two days after my arrival in Stockholm with my brother I got sick. At the moment I do not have enough desire to report about my month in a decorative way. So I make it easy for myself and let a few of my favourite photos of the trip speak for themselves. The remaining ones I might publish in an article about my experiences and attraction to Sweden.
I’ve been mentally taken a ride by the month many times. The bottom line is that I don’t feel as good as I did when I started the blog. Some old wounds were opened and experiences occur, which let me grow on the one hand, but on the other hand also demand all my strength.
The monthly project that I’ve volunteered since the beginning of this blog has changed from something productive that you can grab into something that’s intended to help me: To be more in contact with myself. I can’t yet respond to myself and my needs in every situation (without feeling bad) - which is my priority. Until then the children’s book will have to wait.
There is one great news I have to tell you: In October I will have the pleasure to show a small exhibition in the Koeppencafé Greifswald. I am very much looking forward to it!
