Corner View, reflection. I find myself returning to this place, no matter the subject. My family has a house by the sea in southern Sweden. My maternal grandparents bought the lot and built the house 50 years ago. Now it's my parents place. I go there every summer (like I have been all my life) and it fills me with joy and humility to watch my kids run on the cliffs I used to run when growing up(and my mother too). The thing I wanted to get at is that when I come there I change into a certain mood. A very sleepy, reflective mood. I find myself very introvert, focused on details. Like the shape of a petal, the sound of the waves or the words in my book. Everything there seems clearer and more true. The stars are brighter and the air is easier to breathe. A happy reflective place.

Childhood toys.


Though I am so very happy to be back corner viewing I can't yet seem to fit into the regularity of it. Anyway, this is my post and it's supposed to be a combination of the themes "communication" and "four-legged". These are my four-legged friends, my cats and the horse I am so very happy to take care of in the weekends. Being around animals makes me calm and I enjoy listening to them, trying to figure out their needs. Both horses and cats are headstrong animals, very goal focused, not very interested in anyone else's opinion. But when they listen, they listen. Intense. I love, love, love them.

Grape Hyacinth. I love the gradual unfolding of those little bells.

Late again. This week's theme was a hard one. I love wood. I have a trillion photos of wood. The hard thing was to choose. Anyway, from top, gate to sheep pen at our summer place, beautiful beetle on patio floor at the same place, old washboard bought at flea market last summer.

More corner views at Francesca's. I will put a link list as soon as I figure out the easiest way to do it.

corner view

Corner view. I have missed you. This from my kitchen counter this week.

From this afternoon. I had my sister's children over and while her oldest played with my kids this little helper kept me company in the kitchen, standing on a stool by the sink carefully washing her pacifier. Rinse then into mouth, rinse again over and over again.
Also from today, the pre-spring sun on the counter. In the winter the sun never reaches the kitchen. Now it's here. Joy!
