"When a million people showed up on Revolution Avenue in downtown Tehran to protest the results of the June 12 presidential election, most of them wore sneakers, in case they had to run for their lives."

Blog introduction

To quote J. Krishnamurti (1895-1986) It's not important who I am. But I am in my 30's and I from Sweden (Scandinavia, Northern Europe). The main reason for writing this blog is an attempt to try and avoid my obsession with the years 1986-1989 and the political and pop cultural events that took place during that time. I will try to keep this in english but since Swedish is my main language I might have to add something about it. I would see myself as a text jockey more than a writer. A title I have invented to best describe that writing is never simple. Text is a word written by the thought - it changes as we all do.
