We flew back to Stockholm, and I took the train to Gothenburg. This city on the west coast of Sweden will be my home for at least some time - I have decided this now. I've got an apartment there and I'm in the middle of parting with things in Turku now, things like my internet service provider, my Italian coffee and pizza provider and, to a painfully high degree, friends.
But I didn't know I was going to move there when I last visited the city in the week between Indietracks and the Cosy Den festival. I was just there to try to imagine what a future there might look like. I'm still not sure of anything, but I know I have to try, and I can't deny that it felt good to be there once again.
The Cosy Den festival, by the way, was fantastic, and Saturday night was emotional, as well as extremely entertaining. I was nervous, of course, but at least after the gig, it was pure bliss. Erik de Vahl and Mats Jonsson provided a PERFECT ending to a remarkable festival. I don't know how Mattias Jansson did it again. But he did, he did.
Thanks to Petter, Einar and Ville for accomodation!

Jag kommer som vanligt till Göteborg på bokmässan – då får du visa mig din nygamla hemstad.

Ja, det skall jag göra! Förutsatt att jag har hunnit dit då, men det tror jag att jag har.
