This calm Xmas Eve morning, around 9.30, I was sitting at my breakfast table, sipping coffee and enjoying the view of Hammarby Sound (Hammarby Sjö) outside my window. All was white, the sky covered, but still half open, only the boats and houses on the opposite side of the Channel showing some muted colors. As I was contemplating this scenery in "pastel", I felt the urge to communicate it to you. In this digital age and space, thought is flesh without undue delay, so enclosed please find my view from the kitchen table, as it looked then, on this splendid Xmas Eve morning. A nice way to convey my very best wishes for a calm and relaxing holiday season, don’t you think?

PS: The comments below are actually responses to an e-mail I sent to family and friends on Xmas 2009, with the picture and text I have replicated in the present post. DS
