Day 17 in November, Anno Domini 2016 – Enigma New Album, Family Happenings and A Friend’s Birthday | #blog101 #FlowOfLife #Enigma #Family #Annukka

I – Enigmas new album I have praised Enigma as a key part of my musical journey, all categories defined. It stands in its own right as something to always fall back to, in moments of turmoil and passages of joy. In short – it just is. Music for (my!) health, in its very core! I stumbled upon their new single some month ago, connecting the circle some 25 years back, with the new Sadeness II – reflecting back to their breakthrough single Sadeness I, 1990, and taking it to a “now”. And tonight, being quite much offline and not…

Lived In Solitude Today – Story Of Today Given Tomorrow | #blog366 #Status #SaturdayLove

Only me and the cats here, IRL, in our home today. But in distance, phonetalks with friends, conversations on stuff that really matters on FB webs, and chats with text, voice, images and video with family distributed, making solitude and ‘longiness’ (longing in loneliness) something manageable to carry! Longing for my full family to be in our house again! Mika and Mommy Karin back tomorrow, Nadine here next time Dec 29! I intend to blog on some findings I did today, for tomorrow, related to things that happenened Friday and that happens on Tuesday. And BTW … no TV today!…

L as in Loved Ones | #blog26 #wishlist

Let’s start off with some here-and-now pics. We are in Valdemarsvik for the weekend, arrived today with the full family, cats included. What we do and what happens – follow Karin on Instagram (@akrogirl)! I am sitting on the second floor of Karin’s mum’s lovely house. The Tablet shines. I have a little remote keyboard connected to it. Mindmapped where to take this posting. Directions. Loved ones! Yes. Family! But, before that – let’s make a little historical odyssey. All You Need Is Love – “it was 49 years ago today” Sgt. Pepper told the band to play! And, they…

B – as in Birthdays! (62!) | #blog26 #wishlist

I started yesterday with a blog challenge, with 26 wishes, from A to Z. It was my 50th celebration of earth rounds done around the sun, and now I feel being part of something I want to be in. The Wisdom Flow – for real. Maybe taken seriously, who knows? Anyways, now, it feels great! I am overwhelmed en masse from all the love bombing yesterday, primarily from my closest circle of family! Surreal, and so calm! You were there, so great, so full, so deep! Thank you Mika, Soto, Jippii, Deshi, Uchi, Nadine, Karin and Hedwig! Home, and then…

Hedwig Birthday at Grännäs Valdemarsvik | #blogg100 #Hedwig

We celebrated Hedwigs birthday at her home, eating cake and a very good dinner at her place, “Hedwigsborg”. Afterwards we enjoyed the early summer at the little beach in Grännäs with all in good restful spirit – Mika, Jippii the Eurasier, Karin, Hedwig, me. Thank you for a wonderful day!

Kvällar i familjeglädje – livets flöden | #blogg100 #EttLivIFlow

Jag fortsätter min serie av återbesök till mitt första utkast till boken “I flow”, kapitel ett, “En dag i flow”. Tredje avsnittet, efter Morgon och Dag, handlar om Kväll. I avsnittet om “kvällar i flow”, nämner jag först och främst om att bryta mellan dagens leverans och fokus och kvällens chill. Kortisolfördrivande fysisk träning och kvällsmat. Och sedan mediekonsumtioner, och strategier för dem. Trippelskärm i soffan. Och andra alternativ – exempelvis den batterilösa pappersboken! I mitt fall består ju kvällens fysiska aktiviteter av Aikido och löpning. Och det blir ju en del on-demand serietittande, oftast mycket i sträck. Men! Vad…

A Day Of My Life | #blog366

Brekkie. Two ways to fold a soft bread (“tunnbröd”) with cheese. Jippii – the Eurasier dog owned by Hedwig, Karin’s mother on a wonderful visit today. A dog afraid of passing a bridge over our stream Motala Ström – scary water! Me. Carry. Puppie! Later at night. Cuddle time! LOVE BOMB IN SOFA CORNER! When life is as it should be! Checking the hobby artist’s tools! Annual inventory :). Therapy for the mind and spirit. Mindful exercise training the here-and-now presence! Tea chill adds up to the experience. Karin going to bedroom with Mika. I stay a while and cater…
