Winds of change...

 Dear blog readers,
It has now been an eternity or two since I last resurfaced, 
and many are you who have sent kind messages during my web absence 
- thank you so much! 
Days became months and before I knew it, 
five whole months had gone by without a sign of Swenglish life... 
But not to worry, there is still life here. 
Although with the winter storms came other winds too.
Winds of change.

And of these winds, I might perhaps speak soon... 
Until then, may your paths be lined with spring blossom,
and sunshine embrace your every step!



  1. I have missed yours posts. Hope to see you back again soon. Best to you.

  2. I was pleased to see a new post from you, Helena. Here's hoping that the winds of change treat you kindly.


  3. Here's hopping the winds haven't been to hard on you.

  4. I was also so pleased to see a new post from you with wonderful pictures.
    Hope I will see you back soon, Helena.

  9. Dear Helena,
    I have missed your posts as yours is my favourite blog, and was worried, what might have happened to you! So good to hear from you! Do you know, that the chinese sign for crisis is the same as for chance? And the word "psyche" for soul means butterfly, as we have to change many times in our lives? I hope you are well or will soon be well again. Take good care and enjoy spring!

    Yours Sarah
