Another fulfilling day in Sweden.
Several errands accomplished via the support of Karin's daughters. I got a simple phone number established for the month that I am here--now I can begin really contact people here rather than just by e-mailing. I spent the afternoon with Karin's two daughters, son-in-law, and granddaughter. The granddaughter is three, so she is already, of course, way beyond my Swedish, although I can form some sentences to converse with her.
We went to a nearby island, Tjörn Ö, for lunch and to see an art exhibit by Alice Neel, an American portrait painter from the 1940s and on. Fascinating early feminist. Karin's son is also here for a night. These grown children are such interesting, productive, and contributing young people. I am inspired and respectful.
