This is one of the most useful books I have ever read:

"Internet Core Protocols" by Eric. A. Hall.

Q: Personal library manager 

I ended up using LibraryThing. It's perfect for book and library nerds like me. So now I have sorted and classified roughly half of my books.

Where does a mansplainer get his water?
From a well, actually.

Applied for a position as lecturer at a university 1181 km from home - if you go by car. Some 16 hours on train.

I'm a bit amazed I can still buy the paperback Calvin and Hobbes albums. It must be reprints, right?

I entered the local grocery store thinking that we've got no breakfast, I have to buy something for breakfast.

What do you think was the only thing I didn't have in my backpack when I left the store?

I had like five cups of this afternoon. Close to coffee psychosis.

When I went down to the laundry room, the sun shone through the window slits of the entrance, painting streaks of light on the floor. I went back to fetch my camera. I haven't seen the sun for weeks.


View from my balcony. The autumn morning light finds its way between the buildings and lands on the trees by Tvärån ("Crosswise Creek") that floods after last week's downpour.

When he finally reached the top of the mountain
he found nothing
but his oxygen tube carrier
dead in the snow.

‘It’s just a pigeon,’ said the girl. ‘Let it die.’

The boy lifted it with gentle hands. It was too weak to struggle. He could feel its heartbeat against his fingertips. ‘It just needs help, that’s all.’

He nursed it day and night. Warmed it by a lamp, cleaned its wounds. Fed it from his hand. Every day it grew stronger. And larger.

After a week, it was the size of a cat. A month, a dog. It gazed at him with adoring eyes. And one day, it would carry him into the sky.
