Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Today I, for once, attended the Swedish church, since it was the farewell service for the vicar since 22 years, Örjan Lundqvist, who now is retiring. Normally when I attend there are about 15–25 people there, but today the church was, not entirely unexpectedly, almost full, and after the church coffee several speeches were delivered, among others from the ambassador.

When it was over, I took my back and headed back home, at which point the skies opened and the rain started pouring down. It almost feels like there is a certain symbolism in it, although the weather has been rather unsettled lately and the rain wasn’t entirely unexpected...

Tomorrow I am going to visit the church again, but then for a more secular celebration of Sweden’s national day.
