The split: Living with your heart in more than one city

I’ll soon be flying to the US and I am feeling the split–that divided feeling of wanting to stay here in Stockholm to enjoy the holidays in my own home. But at the same time, I very much want to travel to the US to spend the time with my family and friends there.  It’s never easy.

While Stockholm has been incessantly gray and dark, it is still pretty at Christmas, as can be seen by these photos from Sunday afternoon, just before 3 pm.

In the end Christmas is where your heart lies and so you know in your heart of hearts where that is…
