Every day when I get off the bus on my way home from work, I see this ad and wish I was in it. Sitting on the beach in the warm sun feels so far away right now as the Stockholm sun rises and hovers just above the horizon for a few short hours each day.
For now, though, the light and color this ad brings to my walk home will have to suffice, at least until
A) a fairy drops a bag of cash on my doorstep which i will promptly use to fly far away to a warm place. i’m thinking south africa, maybe thailand? or perhaps an island somewhere…
B) summer comes, which requires waiting for 6 more long months
Guess I don’t have much of a choice on this one. But there is a redeeming factor: the days are getting longer now, by almost 4 minutes every day. So in just 2 weeks, we’ve got a whole extra hour of light! That’s at least one thing you can rely on in Swedish winters, which I’m learning are more unpredictable than not.
