Glad Midsommar

Glad Midsommar or Happy Midsummer. This weekend is midsummer weekend in Sweden and that means celebration and old traditions like dancing around the Maypole. I was lucky to find a Swedish Maypole in Portland, much shorter than the ones usually raised in Sweden but that is perfectly fine. I am happy I was able to see some traditions. I feel a bit melancholic because it is June 20 today and as we say in Sweden, "sommaren är kort" meaning the summer is short. One more summer in my life.....and the years go by too fast.







Back in the day people believed that gnomes lived amongst us humans, I still believe in all that stuff.



The distance between Portland and Stockholm. Perhaps I will spend next midsummer in Sweden.
