Back to our title post, as I was saying, this thursday has been a long working thursday. Thought it would end with a usual couch potato status, for me, but was surprised by a call from a friend who invited me to the Bastilia Librarium, to attend a late Swedish Poetry Seminary.
Although tired, and not a Swedish speaker... I went... and I don't regret it.
I've met wonderful people, heard a beautiful poetry reading in swedish, by the phenomenal interactive and great orator, Leif Olsson, watched the talented romanian actress Ruxandra Sireteanu impersonating the poetry and adored every word from Thomas Trantromer's masterpieces (for those who don't know, Transtrometer won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2011).
Anyway, to sum it up. I've had a lovely time, confirming my soft spot for Sweden, and its writers.
Here are some photos.
ps: Corina and Oana... You're on the blog. :D Shoot me! :p
