Blog on Photos

I just spent the last week uploading all my photos from the tour. I am fully aware that there are way more pictures than anyone would be interested in, but I had fun going through them (and believe it or not, deleting many shots!) My friend Mary Sullivan came over from LA and helped me through the tour. She took most of the photos, some from my sister-in-law Karin too I think. Posting them is probably more for me than anyone else, except for maybe the many musicians and friends that were a part of it all. I hope I was able to give them some good photos to remember our time together. Of course one can never capture their experience in full through film. These are just snippets of moments in a grand scale of events that occurred.  This is probably my 15th or so trip to Sweden and I can honestly say that each trip has left an impact on my life. I can’t really explain it….maybe that’s why over 10 friends have joined me through the years to this awesome country! They will tell you the same.

If you have not been, maybe for now these photos can give you a glimpse into the people and the landscape of Sweden and why I keep going back! I hope you enjoy them.

Home from the Emerald City

Wow! Home now. What happened? Can’t believe the tour is over. Spent 12 hours on Lufthansa thinking about all the details of the trip and all the incredible people and places I experienced. Thank you to everyone that came out to the shows, hosted me and Mary, and showed us the typical Swedish welcome!!

Terry and Emma picked me up at the airport. So great to see them!! They really held the fort down while I was gone. The house looks great and they planted new flowers in the garden over the weekend. I am truly blessed with my family.

I will be posting pics as I upload and unwind in the next couple days. Anyone that wants to continue to have a  look into Swedish culture should check back!

I think it’s time to sleep now…..

Tour end

Back to my friend’s house in Stockholm after a fun show at Bonden Bar. My dear friend Liza Sverin came and sang one of her own songs. Thank you to Daniel for sitting in on bass. What a great time!

We are winding down now and Max and Mary are playing PS3….. Pixel Junk. I don’t get it, but they are talking about monsters and all I see are flying ladybug looking characters that collect money and explode into coins. So bizarre. They are totally into it.  I am clearly spacing out watching this and then blogging about it!!!!

Jamtland Airport

Only in Jamtland does the runway have Christmas trees!

Stockholm

Have arrived in Stockholm. Weather has changed and it’s blue skies!! Wow…so pretty. Could spring be here? One last show before home on Monday. It’s gone by so fast!

Leaving Jämtland and off to Stockholm!

Last day here in Östersund and then off to Stockholm tomorrow. My time here has been so fun…great to see friends. I have been coming here for 23 years and feel like I’m at my home away from home. Lots of memories and we just made more this week! Thank you to Mats for all the dinners and to Maggie who always opens up her home and offers her hospitality to me and my friends. I have had my friend Mary with me on this trip. She has been initiated into the land of the vikings!! Did some shopping yesterday and have to say that Sweden has the best clothes in the whole world!! My daughter really scored this time.

We leave for Stockholm tomorrow morning and then I have my last show on Saturday night at Bonden Bar before I fly back home on Monday. My good friend Max has offered us to stay with him and I look forward to seeing him and his family….also friends since 1989! His mother, Lotta, is like my Swedish mom and is an interior decorator and clothes designer in Stockholm. We will visit her showroom on Saturday. I better leave a space in my suitcase for one of her pieces! They’re irresistable!!

Off for a drive through the mountains now. I relish every moment up here on the lake. Truly the heartland of Sweden!!
