in motion

"i don't know if i can call it a talent..."

My boys are far away in Sweden right now, and while I am truly loving the time to myself here, it does make me a bit wistful, because I haven't been over there in a couple of years.  When people ask me what the culture is like, it's hard to explain what I miss about our Swedish friends, and the particular mix of goofy enthusiasm, cleverness, and sly mischief that epitomizes Swedish humor.

But perhaps this "Sweden's Got Talent" clip may give you some idea.

(One thing I do not miss about Sweden is eating knäckebröd, the enormous round cram-like crackers put to good use as props in this dance.)
