Succession in our Aikido club | #Aikido

After many years of serving as a chairman of our Aikido and Judo club IF Dojo Norrköping, Leif Kinnersjö (6 Dan Aikido, practising Aikido since the seventies), decided to step down and hand over the leadership. And that is to Kimmo Osen, 4 Dan. Good luck, Kimmo! You’re a great spirit. And thank you, Leif! I know you will get back this Fall (Leif was injured when he was working with some stuff, and had an operation, now in rehab), just to train with us. It has been a sheer pleasure to take part of your vast knowledge and experience of…

Anders Sporring – Friend, Brother-In-Spirit, Guardian Angel for Mika | #blog101 @AndersSporring

Anders Sporring has his birthday today – HOORAY, HOORAY, HOORAY, HOORAY! It is half an hour left of his b-day in this timezone, and it is time to enter our sleepzone. Anders, “Andy”, thanks for just being there. The rest is said in the title of this posting. Except one thing – I love you, Anders. Unconditionally <3.

Up and Down and Up and Down And Up … But After All – It’s Friday! | #blog101 #Curated #FridayFlow

Hi, there! Blogging, in times of narrow passages, gets lean and thin. Which trains me to get straight-to-the-point. Read the “meta-data”, read “in-between-the-lines”, read what’s not being shared and said. The space for me, blogging, gets down to almost zero. BUT – I keep my annual challenge, going – one blog post, every day! Towards blog 366 … Ok, sharing some fun and great from the week passing – as well as the loss of a poet and musician who left a very very very great mark in the history of music :*(. 1. xkcd always deliver – quirky humor!…

As Tears For Fears (Roland, yeees?) so eloquently puts it in their Beatles Pastiche – Sowing The Seeds Of Love! My earworm this morning. Always with meaning to explore. A day like this! Landed in an…

Mika’s Namesday | #blog101 #MikaTheHero 

Today, our calendar said that Mikael had namesday. Mika is shortform for Mikael, so that’s the deal. Namesday, today! It’s also World Heart Day – where we get happy to be reminded how strong he has been coming out, beyond the acute heart insufficiency state last year at these days, prior to his pacemaker operation Oct 7, and getting the full setup of meds he is on now some weeks beyond that.  We love you, Mika! And, oh yes. On today’s daymix radio we heard another “Micah” – Michael Jackson and Billie Jean. A good sountrack as any. Cool song,…

This Calling Began with My Daughter Singing “We Are The World” … | #blog101 #MyFamily #MikaTheHero #NadineTheHeroine #Music4Health #PhotoLog

… “We Are The Children” ! Truly! Good Night! (And the storytelling beginning last week continues another Tuesday.) Thank you Karin ♡♡♡♡♡ for capturing the Magic, Beautiful and Love-Worthy! A day of STRONG relief – at the visit with Dr Fernlund, the Heart Doctor – with a 70-30 something of keeping Mika’s pacemaker as-is! Deep breathing out of relief! Now. Sleep!

My beloved’s brother Roland with family – Frisbee Golf Firsties | #blog366 #Family

Today we were having a special brekkie prep! Mika “reading” a wordbook. Fruits and berries! … also in our glass! So. Ready to meet and do … Roland learning me the drills of Frisbee Golf. Fun! And approved as a n00b / rookie. I felt that my aikido helped me in the game! Focus, moves, energy and so. I had one on Par. No 13, lucky number? The date of Karin’s b-day in January! And I was best once in one “hole”. But, I compete with myself, to be better. And having fun! Viktor, their son, with Mika. Roland’s wife…

Posting Post-Kraftwerk | #blog366 #status #photolog

Chronologie. Reverse. Time. — ^^ above … Ultra Energy Save Mode on Gadget. Photos taken via Twitter Photo App. Then. Off My Gadget. Mine, that is. I cannot go beyond this, in my posting. Right now. Epimagic is not enough. Priceless? Speechless? They exceeded my realistically high expectations. Placed alongside a few as Shared Number One Live Music. Ever. — Note: This post is back-dated. The blog-every-day #blog366 challenge (a keep-the-chain-challenge) has my own rule. Let one posting reflect the day. Back-date if necessary. Journalling of sorts if not a specific other blog challenge is there to flow. I think this is…

NadineTrip and Lifestreaming | #blog366 #Nadine

Today I fetced Nadine in Arvika over the day, and we got home by 5.30pm. I have reactivated somewhat lifestreaming more frequent, and shared full day through Facebook with checkins and photos, which I auto-syndicated to my Tumblr feed, as an experiment. You can see the Tumblr feed in the sidebar of my blog (or scrolling down beyond the posts if you are on some mobile platforms). Archives fromJuly, shows more than half of posts the last 24 hours! After we arrived in Norrköping, we had dinner, and Nadine shared some belated presents, which she got from a classmate. Much…

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…
