Time for next work 📖

Lady was my very true companion through writing my book “Generationer”. Today Lady is no longer with me, and I have to look forward. This will be Molly´s book. Behind the books “Generationer” and “Tid för frihet” there are so many hours, days, and years.

It is time to look forward, and I feel like writing a book again. Five years later! I have a theme figured out, and I will continue with Instagram. A picture indeed says more than a thousand words. It will be exciting, adventurous, developing, and challenging. Like keeping climbing a cliff.

This is a very old hotel I am staying at. Comanche has been here for centuries. Presidents have stayed here and I found this old paper from 2009 (see above), when former President Carter was at St Croix. The sun is shining, and there is a lot of inspiration in the air. I am continuing to do sports. Went for a refreshing swim yesterday.

I am beginning my new book here at Comanche. During my five years off writing a book, I have worked on my Diary. Do not hesitate to help me further with different angles of my writing. Opposition is one of the best ways, of moving forward.

Stay safe and stay tuned 🐾

Tropical

Currently, there is some rain. Just like during Swedish summers. Warmth, humidity, sun, clouds, heavy rain. I am acclimatizing. The food is wonderful here. I like the spices that remind me of Cajun. The seafood is lovely, and such a fresh salad. No wonder since there is so much sun and rain on the island. The vegetables collect all the sun and turn them into such tasty vitamins and anti-oxidants. A little like Provence in France.

I always find the local newspaper when I travel, and I love this local paper. Such good and interesting writing. In particular the in-depth analysis of what is going on in the world. However, people here are tired of international news since there is a war going on in Ukraine and the Middle East. Nevermind.

I will relax a little from sports while staying here, but walking is fine. Yesterday, I went for a walk and saw two Iguanas. Will show you a photo on Instagram. These two I saw were like small dinosaurs. Very interesting. Remainings from a time that is not understandable.

Tropical Writing & Leisure🍍

Finally, I arrived. I have somehow started to miss writing. Real writing, I mean writing a book. Some years have passed and I have needed that time to reflect, and sometimes really to understand what I have written. Now I have a very clear feeling about my book “Generationer”, and am ready for the next chapter in my life. My writing life.

Right now I am experiencing Swedish summer, but so much more humidity. This island is green and last night there was some heavy rain leading to more humidity today. I got up very early and started with a hot cup of coffee in this very ancient building. President George W. Bush stayed here some years ago. The military has always been more or less present here. When I got on the plane yesterday, the military entered first. Something we are getting used to now in Sweden, I mean, the presence of the military in society.

I will spend these days to collect some new energy. That will absolutely be needed this spring. The last time I was here I went scuba diving. I went for a little walk this morning, and somehow, it is a relaxing feeling to listen to the tubes being filled with air for today’s scuba adventure. There are sharks here, but rather kind sharks I have been told.

Stay safe, and stay tuned 🐾

Atlanta

Nice to travel again. Amazed by huge airports, and that they work smoothly even though there are so many passengers. Security check for domestic flights in the USA was like going through an MR scan. Feels good. Well, having access to Wi-Fi means staying more online. No time to not be available.

I have started to think of my next book. It will also take time, and I have a very good theme. Simple but very complicated. Found this citation by Jon Fosse “I usually summarize it somewhat, simply by saying that my goal is to write simply and deeply at the same time. Not complicated, but it should appear simple. Everyone can write complicated, it is very simple. But to write clearly and simply, and at the same time deeply, that is something else. It is difficult.” This is actually why I needed seven years for my last book.

I love spending time at airports. It is no man’s land and relaxing.

Pleasure in the news

I couldn´t resist. Technology in the air has been restricted for a long time. For safety reasons. Wi-Fi hasn´t been working during my previous flights. Perhaps too short flights. It is a rather long time ago I made a transatlantic flight. I just saw a movie and am not in the mood to watch another one. Even though Bond movies are the only ones I can watch again and again and again. This time Skyfall. Let´s see if Wi-Fi works.

Stay tuned
