Reruns and butterflies.
I could feel the thunder coming closer yesterday evening. The air was hot and the humidity so high it felt like I was living in a sauna 🙂 Suddenly I heard a loud bang and then it was all over 🙂 🙂 I think it might have been the shortest thunderstorm ever but the air changed to still hot but with cool winds.
Even though it still is summer and autumn is long away I can still feel a change. Birds doesn´t sing as much any longer. They are fully occupied with raising their young ones and there will be no more time to start a new family. Soon the first birds will migrate southwards again, I don´t like it but that´s the way it is.
We have more butterflies here than I think I´ve seen before, at least since I was a little child. They say that we have less butterflies now days but here in my village it´s the opposite 🙂 They are so hard to photograph because they almost never sit down and when they do they close their wings 🙂 🙂 But I did manage to get some good photographs yesterday 🙂
They are showing reruns on most channels now and one of my favorite ones is “The Emigrants” and “The Immigrants”. I don´t know if You´ve seen those movies (they also made a tv series from those movies and that is what they show here now). They are swedish and is about Karl-Oskar and Christina from Duvemåla in Sweden. It´s so bad in Sweden around the middle of the nineteenth century that they have to emigrate to the US.
In many ways it´s a very sad story but it shows how bad things were back then. Some years ago the two men from the pop group ABBA made a musical of that story and I think it is the most popular musical ever played in Sweden. It would most probably still show for full houses if they wanted. I know they have translated it to english and has played and sung the music both in England and the USA. I did find two of the songs on Youtube and they are the two I like the most. I hope I can get the videos to show here in the blog, otherwise I just post links to them.
They are in the US and they all long home again, but Christina knows there´s no return back.
Here Christina lost her child and she is angry at God for doing this to her and also worried that he might not exist.
Well it´s time to drink my coffee and to perhaps do something 🙂 It´s cloudy now and we might get some thunder today as well, but it doesn´t feel like that at the moment. Have a great day!
