Lagom. This Swedish word has no real English equivalent, but roughly means "in balance" or "moderate." Actually, lagom is less a word and more a philosophy. Being balanced and avoiding extremes are considered best ... now this, is very Swedish.
Well, there's nothing lagom about the famous editor of felix's daily starfish and waffles. He's just 100% superstar.
Experience from past moves suggests there's a six week rule in effect. At six weeks, the honeymoon's over, you begin to miss the familiar, and issues temporarily tinted by the rose of your glasses start to reappear. But this is fine because this is normal. And the Swedish me isn't immune.
A few things are simmering below the surface, but that's beyond the scope of this post. More immediate (and, admittedly, more superficial): the other night, my photo management software decided to eat all of the pictures I'd snapped in the last two years, about 20 gigabytes worth. I had 3 gigabytes backed up. Maybe.
Another time, this would've almost certainly bothered me much more. But in the Swedish spirit of things, what's done is done, and there's no sense in getting overly excited about what can't be changed.
Reflect, retrench, and rebuild.
Tomorrow, the Scandinavian adventure continues in lagom. Next stop: Bergen.
See you in a few days.
