The first post or Lions in Sweden

No more phrases, Swenson: I was once...

Somehow I doubt that I will be much interested in updating this blog. Blogs seem to be about broadcasting - I'm more of a reader than writer, an attendant lord, at most, and I doubt if my personality is of interest to anyone else but myself and maybe for a few other people who will not need a blog to stay updated. But perhaps a venue for some occasional public thoughts, more a discipline for thinking than in the sense of being in any real way "public". We'll see.

Very kind of you! I'm afraid the updates will be fairly scarce - I'm not what you would call an original or systematic thinker, so you will get musings on other people's thoughts mostly. But never mind, I already posted a second text, so maybe this will grow on me!

Why did you choose to call your blog "Botanist on Alp"? Just curious.

It's a title of a Wallace Stevens poem (one of my big favourites: "I live by leaves, so that corridors of clouds, corridors of cloudy thoughts..." etc. - I'm still in the middle of my big love affair with him and wanted to use is elegant, mock serious but still serious style as tone setting for the whole blog. That is if I will go on updating it... But so far so good!
