They are here!
Flocks of cranes are flying over my cottage and I love that sound. But they won’t stay for long by the lake unless the weather turns bad again, they are in a hurry to Norway to find a good nesting place. Yes the cranes landing by the lake continues to Norway unless they are staying here of course. The ones staying in Sweden rests by a lake further south in this country. I hope “our” cranes are amongst those coming now, I do miss having them in the field outside my home.
Have You ever thought about how the first sentences in a book can set the mood for an entire book. If they are badly chosen the entire book sort of feels bad but a good beginning can actually make the book better. I’m no writer but I have been thinking of this on my way to work several morning and I have come up with a few good starts on books that I would love to see how they continued after the beginnings I’ve thought of. Like ” Eulalia Lumbens was a woman who immediately caught everyone’s attention when she entered a room. It might have been her huge front teeth or the big hump on her back that did it but I’m not sure.”
“Malvin McFlee had it all. He was intelligent, successful, rich, funny, handsome and humble. I doubt I would have killed him if he at least had had the courtesy of being stupid” or “Have I ever told You about my mother? She was incredible in all ways. Totally insane of course but incredible” or perhaps “My grandmother made delicious cookies, too bad that so many died after eating them.” I know that those openings at least would get my attention🙂 If anyone out there can come up with a story for any of them feel free to use them as You wish, just write Christer You have always been a great inspiration in the dedications🙂🙂🙂 That’s how I spend the time on my way to work early mornings🙂
Once again the wind blows like mad but since it brings cranes and not snow I won’t complain. They have gotten snow further north and yesterday they had over 40 accidents in our capital because most people seems to have forgotten it still is winter despite the temperatures and already had changed to summer tires. My neighbor and I still have our snow shuffles outside because we’re afraid we might jinx it all if we return them in to storage :-)
More cranes are arriving in the dark and I’m pretty sure I would be able to hear the Blackbird if it wasn’t for the wind. I heard it this morning and that song means spring to me. It’s time for a pot of tea and something to eat.
Have a great day!
