№ 2 – The Core | #blogg24

Second of 24 postings, counting down to Christmas. The core. The things that defines you. The most important. I feel the core of me will provide itself as themes for some postings ahead, in this little blog challenge of #blogg24. Family.  My everything. I love you. Karin. Mika. Nadine. Soto. Uchi. Deshi. Aikido. An integrated life philosophy, not just a “martial art”. Ai – harmony. Ki – life energy. Do – the way. Practice, and you will learn. Be in the flow of AiKi, and you will find the way to it. Do. With the practice, I keep centered and…

Soto Two Years – HOORAY HOORAY HOORAY HOORAY! <3 | #blog101 #SotoTheCat #LoveDeclaration

Soto might be the most perfect family cat ever. She came when she was needed the most in our family. Just some few days before we got to know the diagnosis of Mika’s heart disease during the pregnancy. She helped us cope through those days. And, well, since then, I could count so many times and events, and share so many traits, that makes her just that – The Family Cat! Of course, Uchi and Deshi are perfect family cats as well – three very distinct personalities, helping us out in the highs and lows. I do not have the…

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!…

W as in World, RE:LOVED | #blog26 #wishlist

The name of this blog – and my personal tagline/vision/mantra/force/motivation – is RE:LOVE THE WORLD. The About Page tells you what this means – “a world, re:loved, is a world where you meet your fellow human being with love and respect, and can expect to be met with the same”. The stream of news last days/months/years can makes your heart dark. But – if we leave all terror and alarmism in the press, the world, in fact, is getting better! There, graphs, presented in conjunction with prof Steven Pinker article in The Guardian – also, check Hans Rosling, always! – a TED…

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…
