The Nobel Prize for Literature 2011

Did you hear who has been awarded the Nobel prize for Literature this year?

My favorite poet. And a Swede!

I'm definitely not into poetry, but this poet is amazing. I was forced to read and analyze him in high school and I'm so glad that I had to. Tranströmer writes in a pretty simple way, with a very metaphorical language. He's been translated into over 60 languages and I've heard that his poems are great translated too.

He unfortunately doesn't write much anymore due to a stroke he suffered, but he's also a very good piano player and I think there are published recordings by him too.

I truly recommend you reading some of Tranströmers work! Here's an Amazon link to one of his books: The Great Enigma: New Collected Poems

Gym card!

I bought my first gym card ever yesterday. It's been since my first year of high school I worked out regularly. And that's like... 6 years ago. I also took my first class yesterday. Some basic cardio, strength (like sit-ups and push-ups) mixed with simple aerobic moves. I feel a bit sore today, but it's such a great feeling!

Day 11 - Silhouette

Ok, so this might not be a great silhouette picture, but it was the best I could do.

It's an Instagram filter and then I did some tilt shifting to get focus on their hands.
