passing by.. My cats are sleeping. A lot is happening in the world.
So sad. The world is changing. Too Fast. Too bad.

Memory of all that. What a great book. What a great love was there.
Alzheimer came in their life but love still stands between Mary and Cal.
Mary had also
written books about lost childeren.
I was there: England. After more than 4 hours driving and on the boat
to England I arrived in Dover and went away. At first it was scary to

I drove in small roads, visiting very old trees and beautiful gardens.
Days after I feel my feet.
I want to go
back. It was so great
day is almost over. Just come back from work. Sitting outside, hearing
the cars passing by and somewhere music. People talking loud.
The moon is shining. My
cats are sleeping. Time for me to go to bed but my head is full

More than a month later (oktober - november) I almost forgot how it was in London. ABBA Voyage
Wish I could visit it once more. I must admit, England is in my body.
Often I think when I was there and miss it so much. It feels like home.

ABBA Voyage. The magic and the music. Only memories remain. I hope I can see it again.
