The history of love

I cried, I shook my head and stared at the book, cried some more and then laughed - and that was the first 15 pages.

It's beautiful.
It's raw and tangible and so hopelessly human.
thank you for the beautiful words!

Saving face

There is much to be said in favor of stepping down in status and empowering your adversary.

Don't burn the day away

Come sister my brother
Shake up your bones shake up your feet
I'm saying open up
And let the rain come pouring in
Wash out this tired notion
That the best is yet to come

~Dave Matthews Band (Pig)

Architecture and changing the world

Cameron Sinclair - creative architecture to get structures up where they are most needed.
Hats off.


  • When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts
    • What should be done in preparation when this happens on a global scale, more often or just more? This is not a one off.
    • Food and shelter are luxuries in a cruel world. Nobody owes us anything. And yet so easy to forget. The government often provides, but it is not a birthright.
  • Government censorship (US monitoring, Chinese restrictions and even the hypocrisies of Swedish media)
    • How safe would it be if we really knew what was going on?
    • For us, and for long term developments of societal structure - better, worse or just different?
    • (.... I should really read plato's Republic...)

I trust this journey will bring you to where you need to go, and bring you many joys.
I'll remember you and there will always be a place in me where you and our common home reside.
Thank you for all the beautiful times and Bon Voyage my dear!

On the Road and on the Run in Outlaw China

"Hey, what happened to your jacket?" he was evidently asking.
"This is what." Yong showed him the crumbs of half-eaten cakes, and Robby laughed.


"A doctor operated on his throat with wire. It's so he can't yell counter-revolutionary slogans," Xie Wei informed Yong

A travelogue written by the Japanese lover of a revolutionary Chinese artist on the run, recounting their joint journey from China through to Tibet and Nepal. Simple, captivating, sometimes painful, foreign but always fundamentally human.

Rule of thumb

Empirical evidence ;) in Sweden, Australia, and the UK suggests that 3 weeks in the necessary time to either:

a) find a good place

b) find trustworthy tenants/house mates
