March 15, 2006-2011








March 15, 2006 I was staring at the ceiling. I was unhappy with myself. Nowadays I dread self-pity, it's the most unattractive quality of a person.

March 15, 2007 Johan and I rented a car and escaped Gothenburg for Germany. We didn't turn right for Berlin, but went to Hamburg.

March 15, 2008 I watched the Schlagerfestival at Camilla's.

March 15, 2009 I took a walk in the park which was my neighbour in Gothenburg.

March 15, 2010 I ate oranges in the studio I had rented as a substitute for moving to Berlin. Most of the time I sat there wondering what to do with my life.

March 15, 2011 I had potatosalad with cucumber and goatcheese for lunch.

  5. What a wonderful idea Sandra, I'd love to do the same for previous years and will have a look through old photos. In the past I always used to feel sorry for myself and wanted to be someone else. Now I try to make the best of things and realise my life is pretty good. I'm so glad you moved to Berlin.

  7. Wow Sandra! Seriously? You rock. I can't even remember what I did two weeks ago. I guess that's where the pictures come in to help. Thanks for putting this together!

  8. Love seeing the pic from the Autobahn! If I was at that spot right now I would have a hard time deciding where to go first -- Hamburg or Berlin?!
    I would prob. go to Hamburg first to see family and friends and then after a few days I would drive on to Berlin for some fun and exploration.
    Jetzt habe ich Heimweh :)

  11. such a simple post, such a good idea... such a strong message. self-pity is really a non-attractive quality in a person. but the best is to be able to look back and see how much we have improved, how much action we took towards our dreams! you inspire everyone who is in doubt to take the leap i bet! ;) have a delightful day with lost of oranges and not a single drop of self-pity!!! ;) twiggs

  16. Hallo und guten Morgen,
    das passt jetzt zwar nicht unter diesen Post, aber hast du für dieses Wochenende ein paar Tips für Berlin? Wir haben ein Baby, also werden wir viel viel spazieren gehen und vll hast du noch eine Idee zu einer Ausstellung, einem Cafe oä?
    Wenn ihr mit eurer Wohnung durch seid und du mal ganz viel Langeweile haben solltest, würden sich sicher einige über einen Berlinguide von dir freuen, denn das sieht alles so kuschelig und schön aus auf deinen Fotos, hehe :).
    Liebe Grüße und sollte ich dich diesmal zufällig sehen, versuche ich trotz Schüchternheit ein "hallo Sanda" ;)

  19. what i like is that there is never a year that feels and looks the same with the other ones. life is so interesting. some times we know what to do with ourselves and some times we don't. nice narrative and photos, sandra.

  20. Sandra, I like this idea!

  21. I love your post, Sandra, and in fact each time you do reflective photo posts of what has happened on a particular day each year, it really makes me think about my life and how much has changed from year to year. And your writing is so sparse and elegant.

    Have a great day :) xx

  22. Fint - det här är himla intressant på något sätt. När jag tittar tillbaka på åren som gått så känns det otäckt och kusligt. Jag skulle nog inte kunna göra ett sånt här inlägg, det skulle ge mig själv kalla kårar.

  23. I have been following your blog for quite a while now. At least a year. It brings me back to myself when maybe work or other factors are pulling me in other directions. It reminds me of simple beauty and love and of what is important to me. Thank you.

    It's also so nice to see your review and to see you say you dislike self pity. I also used to indulge in self pity but now I see how horrid it is and how lucky I am.

    Thank you for your art
