“Lagom” – not too much and not too little!


“I do not have to climb a mountain peak in order to appreciate the grandeur

of this earth. There are wild dandelions flowering on the patch of wasteland

just outside my windows. A wild rose bush will come to life in the spring rain,

and on summer nights the honeysuckle will send its fragrance through the

open windows”


---- Ruskin Bond


Ruskin Bond’s style of writing focuses on detailed observations of

simple everyday things or scenes from life. His simplistic writing

style reminds me of the Swedish culture ‘Lagom’ (pronounced as

Lah – gom).


‘Lagom’ doesn’t mean that you forego any of the pleasures it just

means that we enjoy everything in moderation. It can be seen in

the Swedish houses and their everyday style of living. Swedes

maintain an uncluttered home which gives breathing space and

helps to see the beauty of every piece of décor.



on a temple bell,

sleeping –

a butterfly!


---- Buson



Does this sound familiar? Can we share a decluttered haiku that

has ample space (ma) in it?
