Today is a gift.
That is why it is called the present. Ha! I woke up this morning with such a nice feeling. I have been working a lot lately, and sleeping a lot less. Today, I got to sleep in and it was wonderful. I had the best night’s sleep in a very long time and I think I know why: I left my window slightly open for the first time in a freezing month or two. Wow. I love to sleep with the window open just a bit because of the cool fresh air and the soothing urban soundscape of the city. Marvellous! However, this city (Malmö) is certainly not comparable with my London. No red double-deckers, no Britons and thus – no British. I have to use Spotify for this when in Sweden. While normal people would like play relaxing sounds of nature, such as morning birds or dripping rain, when they go to bed – I prefer The Underground and the Buses, A Pub in Shoreditch and The Changing of the Guard, Whitehall… Yes, I found an album named The Sounds of London. Nevertheless, we do have blackbirds in Sweden and I think their accent is just fine.
