Hygge (hue-gah)

July 26 It was such a sweet first day here, despite the rain. I met @kajsa_prokopec and her newborn boy for finka (tea/coffee + cake). We haven't seen each other in years but it felt so comfortable right away and we chatted and chatted and that little baby is a dear one.

After we parted I realized I hadn't asked her much about hygge (shared warmth as a cultural value). I realized this as I was running without an umbrella in the chilly rain on the way to the photo museum. I realized that I was so lit up by our time together that I didn't feel that cold. I realized that this is what the warmth togetherness thing is all about.
