foggy view from hotel room

… but I’m not. In this northern Swedish city, though, the above is the actual view from my hotel room. And what I think of is this:

”The hotel is just like yesterday’s, and the city has no name.
It just stands there in a grey haze, And my room is the same.”

So here’s that lyric, by the late, great Sandy Denny (discovered many years after her tragic death), set to music by the gifted Thea Gilmore. From the 2011 album Don’t stop singing.

This is different version of the song than on the album. (In my opinion, better.) The album got great reviews in The Independent & The Guardian.

Om Blind Höna

Bloggen Blind Höna startade 2001 på adressen kornet.nu/blindhona/. Nu har den flyttat hemifrån till en egen adress. Men det är samma blogg.

Min bok "Jävla skitsystem!" har en egen blogg på javlaskitsystem.se och ett engelskspråkigt syskon på stupidsystem.org.

Arbetet med bokprojektet "Den svenska bloggens historia" bloggas på blogghistorien.se.
