“I have lived by a country road throughout my life,
And seen people come and go,
I saw the harvests grow on my turf in peace,
While the storks building their nests.
I saw our spring break,
I heard autumn storms roar,
I watched the wild geese migration under the evening sky.
I have lived by a country road throughout my life,
And seen people come and go”
….. one of my strongest personal heritage is my beautiful county, Scania (Skåne) – born here in 1948, left 1963 …. returned for good in 2009 after doing the world unsafe for over 20 years.
This time of the year is very special to me and I missed it so much during my years abroad … when our famous rapeseed fields are in full bloom – against the blue sky or ocean, the true Swedish colours. Fields and fields … and fields. It’s like the sun has landed on earth.
“Lucky that the internet is available otherwise,
you would never understand
what the Scanians are saying.”
