Corner

The lush bougainvillea guards its corner. Roots and flowers spilling over its limits, but still standing tall. A gorgeous and proud being…

Bridge

Årstabron or the Årsta Bridge has kept me company nearly every weekday the last couple of years. I’m extremely lucky because this gorgeous view greets me everyday at work 🙂 The bridge  spans part of Lake Mälaren in southern Stockholm. Over the course of the year, the lake changes with the seasons – sometimes a brilliant blue in the summer sun, at times a ghostly white in the snow, freezing over to solid rock in the winter, looking like a cracked mirror as spring starts to warm it up, and on special occasions offering a simple backdrop for a resplendent rainbow. The bridge stands by loyally in every season, always part of the landscape, always part of my day at work.

Objects in the mirror…

Every road trip that Mr.A and I brings so many transient moments like this one captured in the side view mirror of our car, when we feel we own the road, the landscape, the world! And they make me wish if only I could hit a pause button and hold on to this feeling a little longer. But as they say, objects in the mirror are closer than they appear, so are those memories held closer in our minds than we know, and they come back to us at inadvertent occasions to surprise us and bring a smile on our lips…
