Yesterday I helped my thaiboxing instructor clean up the new gym (which is just across the street from where I live, by the way), I practiced some, and afterwards it was so warm outside I could walk home without changing to warmer clothes.
When I woke up today, Falun was draped in a beautiful (albeit unseasonal) white cloak of snow. Something is wrong with the weather. Some people may think that because Sweden is located so far north, there's always snow here. But that's not true! Snow in may is very uncommon here as well. And there are no polar bears here either!
Anyhow, this long winter gives credibility to the old Norse sagas about a long winter called fimbulvinter which will precede Ragnarök, the end of the world. It is said that the wolves will hunt well and that the winter will last for several years.
But enough about that! I'm currently working on an experiment of mine. I'm trying to learn how to ink properly. The first pic turned out better than expected, but there are still a lot of things I need to get better at. The flexibility of the brush surprised me a few times, giving broader lines than intended. Also, the amount of ink and the pressure I can apply to change the whole look of the line is something I need to get more experience with.
