Things happen all the time. Good thing some stuff remains as-we-can-experience-as … “STATIC”. For me, this experienced “CONSTANT” is – as you might know by now, if you’ve followed me through the years: PEACE. LOVE. HARMONY. UNDERSTANDING. Fifty years ago today, a Bed-In For Peace was taking place. Yoko Ono. John Ono Lennon. In Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Our World. In the same spirit – here we are. Mika. Nadine. Me. And my beloved Karin behind the camera. In our sofa, at Sandgatan 12B, Norrköping, Sweden, Our World. Not at all with the same magnitude of “followers”. Far from that “reach”….
Mika loves music. Mika loves singing. Mika loves dancing. At the moment, these three songs. He adds new meaning. As with Torn, where Lisa Ajax sings “…pieces”, Mika sings “…pizza”. Just. So. Lovely! And! Cute! Our parental hearts are melting. Our smiles spread as he sings for all of us! A common favourite of both Nadine and Mika is the radiant brilliance of Laleh, singing “Bara få va mig själv” (“Only To Be Myself”). Spot on! Be yourself, Mika. Remind us to be ourselves, Mika. Just. Be! Mohombi with “Hello”, now also added with a sweatshirt we found the past…
Period. Enuff said. Now on to some domestic work (cat litter boxes to get new sand), then getting The Mika from preschool. All, at the same time as Karin is with Hanna and her little big baby Luna in Linköping for an All Grrl Power Day! A special thought to my daughter Nadine and her mom too! KEEP STRONG, ALL WOMEN OUT THERE! AND ALL MEN AT THEIR SIDES! YOU HEAR? __ Img src: Viber
Three playlists from the Winter Holiday week. One week soundtrack of three hours, from the days Nadine was here. One flashback by Karin with grungy nineties – Stone Temple Pilots, Alice In Chains and Mad Season. So far! And from today – a tribute to all mothers out there – especially Karin!

On the last leg home. A regional train. Belated. Leaving Nadine in Oslo with her mom. A small bleeding from my heart of the missing. Healing will take place. All will be fine! Re:uniting, soon again, we are! THANK YOU for a great Winter Holiday, my darling! Home to warmth, love and harmony. Norrköping, here I come!
Today. Many! Nadine’s last day here for this holiday. Tomorrow, going to her other home. A great and very intense week, which had its crescendo today! Steps told this story. Here, there and everywhere – all over Norrköping City! At Oslo C around 3pm local time tomorrow. Walk on!
Before. And after. Speaks for itself, huh?
Today, we had a great family day! A day of days! Since Nadine spent Xmas holidays, her birthday and Karin’s birthday in Eidsvoll, Norway, we had a Sunday, catching up with all these three birthdays! Bonus grandma Hedwig arrived at 11am with Jippii the Eurasier. Fika, dinner (topz, Karin!), ice-cream and all that, of course. Thanks Hedwig for the food! And, then – gift exchange! Nadine got an Xmas gift already at breakfast – two movie tickets! And the Quicken from Harry Potter as bracelet from bonus cousin Therése! Later, in the afternoon, Nadine spread her love and gifts around!…
Mika. Nadine. Saturday. Love!
Today I went to Oslo to bring her to us for the Winter Holidays. Now, just got home and ready for bed. Good Night!
Valentine’s day. Valentindagen. Alla hjärtans dag. All heart’s day! Eight billion hearts. Human. Beyond that. On earth. In universe? Who knows? Some relations are more important than others. But there is only one love! Period.
Today I start a series of blog posts digesting what I intend to accomplish in all walks of life for the rest of the year. Listing a line of projects, big and small, bold and safe. Personal – health and work First of all – health! Still, I am in process to get to full health. For the moment, I have 25 percent sickness degree, to which I will test if it’s possible to work at maximum 30 hours of 40 of the week. I continue to work as a Substitute Teacher at Fria Läroverken in Norrköping, but so far…
