Hans Alfredson – Rest In Peace | #RIP

Hans Alfredson getting the  “lifetime achievement award” at the Swedish film gala / Honorary Guldbagge, 2013. His last public appearance. Source: Wikipedia. Personal notes on my relation to Hans will be interwoven in a story to come, of deep personal nature. In short: He was a strong comfort and lifeline in a strong sorrow work I went thru 1999-2000. I practice sharing personal and private stuff, so I guess I will share the full story, when space and energy allows. His death we felt coming, but it struck me very hard tonight. I love you, Hans! ♥️ May you carry…

K as in Karin! | #Wishlist2017

My intention to place a wish daily, during the month of July, made a halt. For reasons? I dunno. Or, well. I know. Reasons, there are. Meaning, the deeper! With that said, I can only state one thing. Beyond the pause button was hit, life took turns of the unexpected. My love and Partner-For-Life-Whatever-The-FKK-HAPPENS – KARIN – has been hit with that shit. CANCER. BREAST CANCER. The full story, told by her self, in her own voice – is at her blog. And yes, it is in Swedish. Not a problem in these days. Just use Google Translate. Some short…

10. J as in Japan! | #Wishlist2017

36 images of Mount Fuji in different contexts and from different views, from the artist Hokusai – where you most certainly recognize the one on the top left. The Great Wave of Kanagawa. One of the most spread artworks, yes – pop art in its true sense. But, I want to see Mount Fuji. Live! Japan, certainly, is on my Bucket List! A deep wish to go there! And yes, it’s not a secret – my passion for Aikido, the japanese Budo form. An integrated part of my life, where Aikido, metaphorically, is a core sense and expression of my…

9. I as in Inspiration! | #Wishlist2017

The immaterial wishes continues to dominate my wishlist for 2017, a wishlist exercise which I aim to establish as a tradition, beyond my birthday. An exercise done during vacation and holiday times! What I felt during some time, is a bit of lack of inspiration, especially when it comes to create texts or music. My blogging has went down in speed and frequency beyond the #blog365 challenge 2016, and writing more extended essays or texts haven’t been taking place since ending up writing the first full draft of my book that never went into full publishing all the way, or…

8. H som i Helger! (Weekends) | #Wishlist2017

Helger. Ja, helger! Vad önskar jag mig av dem? Först och främst – jag vill ha massa fler av dem framåt längs min livsväg! Jag vill spendera dem med min Karin, och om några jordvarv, då och då med både barn och sen kanske till och med barnbarn? Se min önskan gällande dagar! Och jag önskar dem lugna och sköna. Då ges utrymme för återhämtning och annat pyssel som inte får plats måndag till torsdag. Torsdag? Ja, vi vill ha weekendkänsla redan på fredagen! Som denna helg! I fredags, på ett lekspring på dryga fem km, fångade jag solens nedgång…

6. F as in Futures! | #Wishlist2017

Fifty years ago, exactly today, The Beatles released their 7″ single, “All you need is Love” in the UK. I wish their universal message gets to be understood and lived by, in the end the whole Family of Humanity. But, to reach there, begin with yourself. The song was tonight’s lullaby. Now, my turn to get to bed. Good Night!

2. B som i Basinkomst! (Basic Income) | #Wishlist2017

Ett evenemangsnäste på Gotland har kickat igång. Han som stod på lastbilsflaket har för länge sedan sett grunden för det rämna. Initiativtagaren, alltså. Nämner inga namn, of reasons. Fokuserar istället på B, i bloggutmaning – Basinkomst! Jag önskar en lyhörd, öppen, nyfiken, (ömsesidigt) respektfull och kärlekstörstande konversation i och om det. Överallt. Just, så. Ord, inga visor. Text, inga bilder. Nu, sova. Punkt.
