After attending Catholic school for 12 years, I sometimes conceptualize time within the liturgical categories of “Ordinary Time” -the ordinary everyday periods- and … Exceptional (?!) Time -e.g. Advent / Christmas, Lent / Easter, et cetera. However, since moving to California, it feels as though the patterns of our seasons have yet to settle into any “Ordinary Time.” Once daily rhythms settle into one groove, something (an exhibition, a new job, et cetera) comes along to shake it all up again.
Almost two weeks spent traveling through Sweden in the company of my mama, here is a sampling of my images paired with my mother’s photographs from her tenure in Stockholm in 1981 and slides from my great Aunts Hup and Marg’s visit in 1964.
