Sweden seems to have come to Seattle!

Looking out my window these days, it’s hard to tell I’m in (usually) rainy Seattle and not snowy Stockholm! When my boots crunch on the ice and snow as I walk my confused little dog, my mind pulls me back to my walks in the woods of Sweden. Has it really been four years since I left? Has it really been seven years since that first, dark winter in Sweden when my stepchildren were grieving and upset?

No matter where we are on this planet, one thing is sure: time moves forward. Now it will soon be 2022. What will time bring us in the coming 365 days? Good things, I hope.

For the next few days, I will be posting short posts like this. Then, in 2022, I will start sharing a chapter-by-chapter guide for my book, Swedish Again. This is a time of learning, reflection, and preparation. Thank you for sharing it with me.

  1. I am reading your book now and am really enjoying your story and patience. I am a Canadian who lived in Sweden as an exchange student 1979-1980 and find your story enlightening
