For some reason, I have a big urge to have a semla. Too bad I can’t buy one where I live now. I miss being able to walk down the street to buy one.

This is the only photo I had on my phone, taken many years ago when we tried to make them ourselves.

Although I have many years of formal education, most of what I've learned has come from experimenting and trying to solve problems on my own. Once an idea for a project is set in my mind, it is all-consuming and one must learn everything possible about the subject on the way to the outcome. For learning is more than reading books and spoken word, it is hours of frustration, trial and error, and one sudden flash of insight when the world magically makes sense. It is during this moment when I am truely alive.
