Majgull’s Recent Updates

“Only the most ignorant still believe, like Saint Augustine, that time is a river. We others know it is a delta: that it branches out and seeks new routes, that it rejoins itself only to seek a thousand new courses. Some may be waterfalls, some no more than little stagnant pools passed by the tide, forever still...

This is one of those times. A pool. I sink down in it. I want to stay forever in this water.”
Majgull Axelsson, April Witch

“The future was on the way, and it was as critical as a mother-in-law, expecting everything to be neat and tidy when it arrived.”
Majgull Axelsson, April Witch

“Det är ju med de kyrksamma som med trubadurer och diktläsare, man vet aldrig riktigt när de tänker bli pinsamma”
Majgull Axelsson, April Witch
