Today, we celebrated Mika, turning two years of age! We had Hedwig, Jippii and Hanna to visit, so it was great! It doubled as a Mother’s Day, so great to have two gen’s of mothers here. I love this boy like crazy. Thank you Hanna and Hedwig for the gifts!
Tonight I was, as usual on Wednesdays, at the Dojo and trained. Now, approaching bed, I check my Insta flow. I stumbled upon this! You find Aikido there, at right! Oh, this is nerdery. But what to expect? Yes, exactly! I am Aikido! We are spread over the world, and that is a strong feeling. In a sense, it becomes a universal language, similar to music. An understanding beyond words, a connection. And coming with the Radical Inclusiveness I experience with Aikido culture, I can really subscribe to the sentiment – “Aikido – the Art of Peace”! — (Source: linked…
Allowing yourself To float away Rivers run deep Heart kept light What opens up When eyes closed Sleep Serenity Sacred Sleep! Let’s excel At the moment The space of your dreams Become one with the power Of your ultimate imagination Now!
Repeat? A day off line, with frenetic focus on resatbilization and rest. Chill, now, plz … Beyond Aikido, with Mika still jumpy of his cold, with my Karin in deeeep cough cough, with Soto in frenetic reproduction wantings, I feel that it’s great to have Uchi and Deshi just being cool in all this frenzy. End of Storm. Now! Universe, you hear? GOOD. NIGHT!

Mika training with his new shoes! And Spring Première at Halvars Ice Cream!| #MikaTheHero #PhotoStory
Mika has some new shoes, Converse style. We were at the playground at Vasaparken today, and he took the opportunity to train walking with his new shoes. And it went great! Above a slideshow! Afterwards, we rewarded us with the true Norrköping Spring Première – Halvars Glass! Halvars Ice Cream! Delightful, as always. A nice day out! Spring is here! Hooray!

I love this guy. (Photo by Karin.)
Yesterday, Mika took his first determined strong independent steps! He has taken small cautious steps before, but this was the real thing! Captured on video, here are some still frames from that vid! You can see an Insta-edited version over at @relovetheworld! Proud parents, we are!
Today we were at Folkparken (“People’s Park”), where they at the moment take away some trees that are ill. Fascinating to see the big trucks, right Mika? Then we went to the playground part of the park, in the summerish-feeling spring. Wonderful!
