We got a letter containing the picture with Mika on, that Hedwig made for sending up in the air with a big balloon at the end of the Mika Memorial and Bye Bye 29th of August, 2019! With all the signatures from the participants. It was found near the lake Viggaren in Katrineholms municipality, 34 km north of Norrköping. The nice person who found it in the deepest of forests was kind enough to send a map and a picture from the exact spot it was found! Felt like a piece of Mika returned to our lives, only for some…

The annual Depeche Mode Bar by NEMCOM! Taking over Broadway Café, and playing DM all night! Three sets, one ambient/chill, one pure orthodox chronological, and a fictious live performance, mixing live recordings from live albums! We also played a re-run of Joakim Hedström’s “Complete Broadway Mix”, a mashup of 25 minutes made live 2011 at that year’s DMBAR. Very high spirit, and a marathon DJ set of seven hours! Love!
Thank You Depeche Mode And Anton Corbijn For “Spirits In The Forest”! | #DepecheMode #AntonCorbijn #SpiritsInTheForest

When we had our Mika Memorial and Bye Bye the 29th of August, Grandma Hedwig ended the ceremony with a baloon rising up in the air, with signatures on a photo of Mika from all of us attending. The Funeral Bureau had two extra baloons, just in case, and we got one of them home. It has been high up in our living room ever since. The other day I wondered when the helium would leave enough for it to sink. It happened yesterday! Mika, we felt, played around with it for a while, up … down … aside ……
On May 28, 2015, at 10.19CEST, Mika Hans William Abrahamsson, came from ‘there’, to ‘here’, at Skåne University Hospital, Lund, the Maternal Clinic, Delivery Ward, Caesarean Operation Room. From #AnotherWorld, to #ThisWorld. On Aug 1, 2019, at 11.34CEST, he went from ‘here’ to ‘there’, at Vrinnevi Hospital Intensive Care Unit, Norrköping. From #ThisWorld to #TheOtherWorld. What happened in between ‘then’ and ‘now’, is not possible to grasp in a short mix description on this platform. Music that came to ‘me’ beyond Aug 1, 2019, and up until October 10, 2019, are now flown together in one story – hereby numbered…
MikaMix №1 Now Uploaded And In Private Mode Since 1430HRS Sharp | #MikaMix #MikaTheAngel #aBreathing
Intention and outcome matched! My first in a lifelong series of MikaMixes now published in private mode! I am awaiting composers and artists approvals before going public with it. This day was in bliss, in the midst of all grief, of having it done. As I said at his grave at the Memorial Service and Bye Bye Ceremony – all I do will be dedicated to him, in order to keep his memory alive. Besides this, domestic services, together with getting groceries and commodities to our household – and visiting the grave, as usual – was done. Evening, in chill,…
… of activities. To which I need to return to. After some sleep! Events, times three. Two covered with photos, and one going All In, with full event-photographer-with-quantity-giving-quality-thinking … in action! Cliffhanger! Good night!
We had a little memorial for Mika, in the open at Folkparken, Norrköping. We also visited the grave.
One of those days of painful memories. Kulturnatten Norrköping – without Mika. We went out to have a meal at Trottoarbaren, Dynamo, Hallarna. Then, visited some friends at Företagsateljéerna, to see their works of art. I was out also, later in the night.
A screenshot from the countdown, added with some details! A week from now! Cerefie, who sang on the first memorial services, will return – this time with Arvid on cello, interpreting Laleh with five songs. And some pre-recorded mixes from all my five artist aliases, for an open air event in Lejongropen (“the Lion’s Pit”), Folkparken, Norrköping – next Sunday, at 3pm to 8pm!
We are in the planning to have an Open Air event for those who could not attend the Memorial Services and Bye Bye Ceremony. It will be a publice event, and we had to apply to the local police force for a permit. That was handed over today, and here is the sketching on where and when that went with it as attach! When event final outline and practicalities are settled, and event published, I will write more! Sept 29. Sunday. 3pm to 8pm! Note: This posting done in retrospect, due to a week with fever and cold.
