Let the forest be our healer. In Grännäs, Valdemarsvik, at my mother-in-law Hedwig. Co-grief. Just took a forest therapy walk, and an evening tea after that. Now in bed. We will be here until Wednesday. Photos from back and front view from the house, “Hedwigsborg” – Castle of Hedwig. Sleep, holy sleep, come! And let Mika come through in my dreams tonight to hear him say he is ok! We survived – barely – the first night without Mika. Sleep came to us against all odds, in rounds of three. Mantras help! Yesterday every single breath was a victory against…
9th of May my mother-in-law turned 70! We celebrated her today in Valdemarsvik, together with her son Roland with family, her sister Solweig and us. Photo by Mika from last Summer. Today, also, is a special day for Karin and me. We have been a couple 11 years and engaged for six years! Hooray for us!
Uchi and Deshi turning seven years today! Wow! Time flies! I love you from The Big Bang to the End of the Universe!
She made the test for applying for Higher Education today – full day testing. What we in Sweden call ‘Högskoleprovet’! Victory Number One already won – SHE MADE IT! More victories ahead … Time to turn the tide! Yay! Me so fkkn proud of her! I love you, my DRRLING!!! Celebration, we had! With balloons! HOORAY!
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…
Congratulations, John Lundvik! Check my Insta for a picflow tribute (and an all too late night for Mika)! But it is NEVER EVER EVER TOO LATE FOR LOVE! Now, very late for me as well, though. Good Night!
Instaclassic. No further comments. A Day in the name of ‘THAT’. WHAT? LOVE! It exploded at Stadium Arena today. Junior Achievement – the “Swedish Incarnation”. Regional Fair and Awards! Whoa! More happened this day. In the same spirit! But now, hit the Image and then hit yourself with the Love Bomb! YES!
Before. And after. Speaks for itself, huh?
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.
Hooray for us, my love!
