I dag är det årets ljusaste dag, och vägen fram hit gick via mörker. Vi samtalar och förundras. Vi planerar och resonerar. Vi väntar på framtiden, som om det inte fanns ett _nu_.

För en tid sedan fick jag rådet att starta en blogg för att nå ut med mina texter och min kunskap om Ukraina. Jag har ju haft viewpoint-east sedan 2009, och fick det rådet mig att tänka på Benedikt i romanen Därv av Tatiana Tolstaja. I ett samtal med en annan invånare i landet Fjodrograd upptäcker han till sin förvåning att inte alla har svansar. “Har du svans?” … “Har du en blogg?”

Här kommer kanske en annan nyhet. Jag har en kamera. En Olympus OM-1. Jag använder ibland annorlunda filmer i min kamera. Som här, när jag använder Kodak Vision 250D.

We run to the buzzer.
Warm snow float down from the trees.
We lean against our wishes,
of eternal spring.

In every shadow,
light is hiding.

On every shadow,
you find a way of light.
In all your breaths,
you are free.

Even when you are captured.

(March 2016. Olympus OM-1. Fomapan 200.)

Oh, this city

We Lwowie

Many connections

Glowing Lviv in October

We have turned sheet. We have turned into November.

But even though, we will remember October. This glowing October. So unlike and also a like others. We walk by the trees. Aware of their life circles. Perhaps we started to think about our own life circles. Perhaps we thought about somebody else.

But before we knew it. A silent sigh. Made all leafs leave there nest. Down on the ground. Redecorating our paths.

But some of you are still hanging up there. Knowing that Winter will make a try. Later in December.

More summer harmony in Lviv

When the heat strikes Lviv, the tempo gets slower. And the city gets even more friendly and many spots are created for recreation and reflection. But sometimes we just invent them by ourselves.

resting in the park
It is nice and relieving in the grass.

waiting for my man
Anywhere were you can find shadow.

sitting in the shadow

sitting in the road

sitting at the restaurant

Even the bikes takes a rest.

The tomatoes is growing.

birthday flowers I
And the flowers too.

dinner arrangements
And the peas.

Flying ears
Kosma is resting in the bathroom.
