Let's go then

     So - in about two hours we are on our way back home. I'm so relieved!:) There is a whole spring waiting for us, and summer and fall too. My beatiful mountains in May - there is nothing more beautiful. Spruce forests, silver river with dancing fish, deer, rabbits, chopping wood at morning, playing cards with my brothers, sitting in front of the fireplace. Fuck city and well paid western jobs, with all those smug people thinking that you are so bloody fortunate to be able to join them in this western "paradise":)
     So then in August the retreat with our spiritual master, Tripurari Swami. We've been waiting for it since last year - all those lectures, long talks with friends, walks in the mountains.
     And then... Camino de Santiago, second edition! In September we are going to walk the Pilgrim's Way again. We were not planning it, but since we did it the first time, it was always in our dreams. So we got some unexpected tax return and we decided to use the money for the trip. Have you heard about that, guys? It's an amazing experience, look it up. Here are some pictures from our first Camino.
     And the the winter - long evenings, twenty below zero, fireplace, reading, writing (maybe I'll manage to finish my book I left unfinished when I came here).
     Let's see what future brings. Thank you all for following me, I wish you all the best, and good bye. Stranger in Copenhagen is going to be stranger somewhere else:)

Good bye Copenhagen














     So the Copenhagen adventure has come to the end. We decided to take off, it just wasn't working for us. We handed the notices in our jobs, and we are going by the end of April. I'm so looking forward to the spring time in my home place - family, friends, mountains, river, forest, no regular job - apart from the wood chopping and gardening, ah, what a dream:). Just one month to go.
Probably I will miss Copenhagen in few months, but right now I'm happy to leave.

     Recently I started to learn bodhran - Irish drum. I love it:) Tania and housemates are not sharing my enthusiasm, but I'm not blaming them, it's a noisy instrument, and I'm just a beginner:P

Whiskey in the jar - ukulele cover

Today just a song. I think I will dive into the Irish stuff for a while, I need that light, frolicking vibe:)

Hejo

1. Hello guys. I removed my facebook account. What a relief! Inspired by the first step, I removed my blogs too (there is like 7 of them, or so), but then I realized, I need to leave some connection with the outside world. At least for a while. I try to get back to the simplicity from the times before internet. It's not easy, but I think it can be done. So I revived Stranger and my Polish blog, garsc-drobnych.blogspot.com.

2. Inspired by Amalie, tomorrow my wife and me, we are going to buy lot of bird food and we'll try to save some of those small, noisy inhabitants of Copenhagen. The poor creatures are dying by thousands because of this weather. So if you have some extra money and time, please, help them as much as you can, please! It doesn't cost much. In most of the supermarkets you can find those edible balls, you can hang on the trees.

3. Today I have a day off, so I recorded my ukulele cover of this great Bob Dylan's song - Masters of War. Here it is.



See you
