lilacs in her hair

 

Here we go again with me totally forgetting that this blog exists.
It’s getting repetitive with me opening every entry on here with “oh my it’s been a while I forgot about this blog.. again”.

I can’t remember what I wrote in my previous entry but I’m sure it’s somewhere along the lines of me complaining about the grey, cold and wet weather, mentioning I’ve been on the low, telling you which songs I’ve been listening to recently etc etc.

I’ve been feeling a little bit better and today I’m actually in a great mood. I think something that helped was that I’ve been feeling slightly more organized recently, or that I’ve got things (somewhat) under control, and yesterday me and my mother took our weekly Tuesday-trip to a charity shop we love and I found some very exciting books! I found two art books, one with Gauguin and the other one with Toulouse-Lautrec (I have at least four art books with his works so I should probably refrain from buying another one), “After Dark” by Haruki Murakami, “Till Dig” (To You) a selection of poems by Karin Boye, and “Samlade Dikter” (Selected Poems) by Edith Södergran, my favorite poet! I’ve never seen books about or with her poems anywhere so I got a little lightheaded and had to hold on to a bookshelf so I didn’t fall onto anybody or knock something over in my fragile and aghast state.

Anyway since I feel pretty good today here’s a “good mood” playlist;
