An evening in Stockholm

It is always the same. Whether you are walking or going by train, the way always seems shorter the second time than the first. (And that is true of distances that are not to be measured in miles and yards.) ~ Erich Kästner

We’re constantly changing facts, rewriting history to make things easier, to make them fit in with our preferred version of events. We do it automatically. We invent memories. Without thinking. If we tell ourselves something happened often enough we start to believe it, and then we can actually remember it.~ S.J. Watson(Before I Go to Sleep)

“For a while” is a phrase whose length can’t be measured. At least by the person who’s waiting.~ Haruki Murakami (South of the Border, West of the Sun)

I think that’s what we all want, in the end.
To know that we left footprints when we passed by, however briefly.
We want to be remembered.
So remember us.
Please.
Remember us.~ Mike A. Lancaster (Human.4)

During our visit to Stockholm, we walked around certain areas many times and enjoyed it thoroughly. I sincerely hope to get second chance to visit this beautiful city again. I would love to take some better pictures.

  1. Beautiful words to go with the photos, Rupali! Stockholm is a city I’ve always wanted to visit. We have some friends with a home there and one day I hope to make it happen 🙂 🙂 Many thanks for the link!

  2. Love your shots of my capital city – I seldom visit myself, but every time I do, I wish I went more often. Thank you for the blue tour – Stockholm really is a city on water. Love the train shot!

  3. Your photos are beautiful! The night scenes, the bright lights, the lights reflecting on/in the water…all very comforting to me. Thank you, Rupail! 🙂 And thank you for being a light! Your words, and your photos, are so uplifting and helpful!
