Isn't it fantastic

Daily prompt: Winning Streak.
What’s the longest stretch you’ve ever pulled off of posting daily to your blog? What did you learn about blogging through that achievement, and what made you break the streak?

Oh my ……………..! ……. this is a question I cannot answer. I am so sorry!
I have been a blogger since 1996. Before all these easygoing bloggings hosts it was HTML and WYSIWYG and I had to build the webpages by myself.
My first domain was www.kastanjebacken.net and it is still there. Then I got www.rudenius.se where I have my genealogy with research back to 1600. I also have a lot of blogs on wordpress and blogspot, 500px …. well I have almost tested them all 😉

Nowadays I am mostly blogging here and in my political blog. I have 3 weekly photo-challenges – OnsdagstemaTorsdagstemaFredagstema. And I take part in different challenges. Before mostly photo challenges and now mostly poetry challenges.

So you tell me …. when am I not blogging 😉 ………. I like to learn and test new things ♥ 

Blogging is to live
develop in modern times

the world comes closer.

We bought our first computer
about 1985. It is exciting to follow how fast the technique develops. And the best with Internet is that we can come so close and ”speak” to almost anyone in the world. Isn’t it fantastic!?


Maybe not

Carpe Diem #615, Exodus.
Daily Prompt: Under the snow.
You were caught in an avalanche. To be rescued, you need to make it through the night. What thought(s) would give you the strength to go through such a scary, dangerous situation?

Is this real or not! I am captured under the snow. At least I can breathe though it is unbearably cold. Drowned in the snow I start thinking about my life and it’s possible kind of ending. I’m not at all afraid to die. I am ready when it’s time. If the time is now – then it is.
I have had a fairly good life but lately affected by huge disappointments caused by a former near one. That happened on what I call the Terrible Tuesday – 26th Febr 2014.  I would rather not had that experience. It made a big black hole – a thorn in my life.

So I will rather give my thoughts to my son, my two daughters and to my four grandchildren. I am so proud of you. I was so happy for your letters M and B.  For skyping and talking with you M+W+B+M. I love you all .

And then I will just float away in my own world like I am able to do in special difficult situations. This ability I love and appreciate to have. It feels like nothing in the world can reach me and hurt me.

So maybe we see each other again – maybe not – that’s life.

Sadly floating by
all memories from the past
like melt frozen snow.



Leftover necklace

Daly Prompt: Leftovers SandwichToday, publish a post based on unused material from a previous piece –a paragraph you nixed, a link you didn’t include, a photo you decided not to use. Let your leftovers shine!

Shooting macro with my little Canon G12 didn’t turn out as well as I wanted. Missed my Canon EOS 6D and Sigma macro lens.

While shooting macro
necklace appears closer
in my Canon lens.

But here it is – my leftover – macro …


Lost in real life

Skrivpuff: En angenäm busstur.
Carpe Diem Haiku: Special #119,
Tomas Tranströmer’s 5th ”a wild boar plays the organ”.

Loaded with heavy shopping bags. Heading for the bus. Sign shows 4 minutes to wait. Wating and waiting. A couple hugs and kisses. A fat man watching. An Indian man talking in the phone. Teenagers chatting in the waiting box. Smokers smelling ugly.

Tired of waiting
hooping the bus will come soon
want to be at home.

Entering the bus. Fall in deep thoughts and dreaming away. Enjoying the fairy land. Making my own fairytales by the way. On my way.

Waking up in chock
I don’t know where I am
Lost in real life.

Didn’t recognize the buildings. Where am I? M-street. Gone too far with the bus. Want to stop it at once. Next busstop. Out for entering the pavement.

Probably it was meant for me to have an extra walk.
A fairytale is worth that.

I like writing Haibun and include haiku.
