Photographer's Note

For the TE friendly contest: Valentine's day/St. Valentin:

---
I sit and wait
Does an angel contemplate my fate
And do they know
The places where we go
When we're grey and old
'Cos I've been told
That salvation lets their wings unfold
So when I'm lying in my bed
Thoughts running through my head
And I feel that love is dead
I'm loving angels instead

And through it all she offers me protection
A lot of love and affection
Whether I'm right or wrong
And down the waterfall
Wherever it may take me
I know that life won't break me
When I come to call she won't forsake me
I'm loving angels instead

When I'm feeling weak
And my pain walks down a one way street
I look above
And I know I'll always be blessed with love
And as the feeling grows
She breathes flesh to my bones
And when love is dead
I'm loving Angels instead...


By Robbie Williams & Guy Chambers, 1997

To all my friends - and most of them most certainly are my angels - that I've come to meet and know over the past five years at my favorite coffee house: Espresso House in Lund.

And what would be more suitable on a cold Valentine's Day in February than a large cup of hot cocoa - topped with a cream heart. Here advertised at the coffee shop inside Hansacompagniet, the large shopping galleria in downtown Malmφ. In Sweden this day is referred to as Alla Hjδrtans Dag [Day of All Hearts].

Although my favorite place is situated in Lund - I've pictured and wrote about it here - I sometimes sneak into this one, which is no. 2 on the list. In some odd way it feels like cheating, but I like the change - because here I am nobody!

This chain of coffee houses is expanding rapidly. Today there are 23 of them - mostly in southern and western Sweden - but focus is being shifted into the urban area of Stockholm. Big city life...

So, it's good to have a "place to call home"!
