It’s time to move on

Posted in Projects in potentia / Potentiella projekt with tags , , , , on June 10, 2011 by gaijin

Now, as I proclaimed a while back, I’m merging my photography with my writing… and I’m doing it here: www.verbali.se

Please, be patient as I slowly punch the shit out of that new site – it’s still a wee bit buggy. But It’ll get better. Now, if you’re reading this through an RSS-reader, you can update the feed to this instead. And if you’re one of those bookmark-readers, be so kind as to update your bookmark so it points to http://www.verbali.se instead. There, I’ll keep writing and also showcase my photos. There will be quite a lot of updates coming to that part of the site over the next few days, but do not fear – text will also be generated.

 

Peace, out.

It’s drawing near! Recently I decided that I was going to bring my writing and my photography together, and yesterday I threw together a new design for it as well. I now need two thngs: 1. A html-monkey that can take my design and make me a wordpress theme from it AND 2. A good name for the new domain! I desperately need help with both. If YOU have a good idea for a name or have the skill to make my design come alive, PLEASE let me know! There WILL be cake!

 

Nu börjar det närma sig! Nyligen så bestämde jag mig för att sammanföra mitt skrivande och mitt fotande, och igår så slängde jag ihop en ny design för det projektet. Nu behöver jag två saker: 1. En html-apa som kan hjälpa mig att konvertera min design till ett wordpress-tema OCH 2. Ett bra förslag på ett namn till den nya domänen. Om du har en bra idé om namn eller om du har skills för att hjälpa min design att fungera, SNÄLLA säg till! Belöning i form av tårta utlovas!

I didn’t mean for it to happen! Honestly, I didn’t! But in a way, now… it feels inevitable. Like it was destined to be.  Continue reading

As I write this, you are 3,5 years of age. Barely out of the gate in the race of life, and already you’ve had a profound impact on so many people around you. You’re sitting right next to me eating a few crackers; after refusing to eat lunch you’re quite hungry and irritated – dinner is still about an hour away.

Nu var det dags att tävla lite i FotoTriss igen! Vill försöka vinna ett stativ. Den här gången är temat “Ljus”, nånting som de flesta fotografer borde ha koll på, kan man tycka. Mina bidrag har i övrigt ingen röd tråd den här gången, men jag är förhållandevis nöjd med resultatet iallafall.

The package arrived on a Monday. At some point during the afternoon, someone had left it outside our door. It had been raining all week, but around noon the sun had come out, so when I found it when I got home from work it was dry. It was a normal cardboard box roughly around the size of a shoe box, with brown strings wrapped around it securing the lid firmly in place. Continue reading

Just over a year ago, I decided to kick my scholastic career into gear, and that meant I needed to fix my old grades from high school. To do that I applied to Vindelns folkhögskola. Admittedly, the first thing that attracted me was the schedule; it matched perfectly with the times we had Zach at kindergarten. It soon became so much more to me than just convenience. In little more than a week, I’ll leave the place that so insanely quickly felt like home to me, to move on to new grounds and new challenges, and I admit that it is with a heavy heart that I will take my leave.
