Today I sat, if only for a few minutes while waiting for the train, at Nordstan, a shopping mall in Gothenburg. I sat an watched people, but not in the usual way when you laugh at those appearing funny or speculating as to where they are from and what they are doing. No, this was a highly peaceful moment in a very crowded and loud area. Suddenly everything became so distant. Around me people were talking, walking, running, screaming, laughing and arguing, but I just felt at ease with everything, like if everything was just as it’s supposed to be.
Then I looked at the time, got up and went home.
