“If This Ain’t Love, Nothing Matters …” | #LoveDeclaration #PapaAbbie #music

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!

Eureka! A book … | #PhotoStory

I love new ideas. Inventions. Insight breakthroughs. This is a core in my future research to come. Just another book from the university library Campus Norrköping to flip through in my exploratory long-term search related to the theme ‘music for health’. Work in progress!

Mika Loves Emoji | #MikaTheHero

His last obsession is an Emoji Encyclopedia I got hold on at the February Annual Book Sale. This message I got today on my way to introduce Aikido to a group of students from my workplace (a secondary school, substitute teacher on call). I interpret it as a story with the message – “Good luck, daddy! Reach high!”. Thanks, Mika! All went fine!

A NorWayDay! | #DayFlow

Today we institutionalized “the laziest day of the year”. First Sunday in March! The very day when Vasaloppet takes place! The oldest and longest ski race in the world. 90 km – and turning 100 in three years! Norway won! And so, they did, as well, in the 50 km in Seefeld. Damn Norwegians! Anywebs, we went on with the Norwegian theme, and paid a visit to Arendal – where Mika truly loved Frost! Sunday Matinee at its best! Gotta love it. So. From restful recovery to sleepy serenity! Tomorrow brings back some action again, oh yeah!

A night out with the club | #aikido

Tonight we had a bonus Aikido training, focused on intense Kokyo Nage (for the nerds to know …). So. Fun! Then we hanged out at the Dojo for some extended socializing, before hitting town and ending up on the premier finer beer spot downtown (no brands mentioned …). Great to share time in something else than your Keiko Gi (nerdiness… AGAIN – your training gear …), off the mat, some time! So much to share, so much to love – and that is spelled Aikido, Life and Universe! O’Sensei, the founder, would say – “well, that’s the same”, meguess ……

Strong Flow – Intense Doings – Soundtracked by … | #pomodoromix

Magnetic Mix 016: Amine K, curated by Magnetic Magazine. Got me thru the wading of the piles of books at the annual book sale, done first thing beyond leaving Mika at kindergarten. Three gems found! More about that later. Afternoon spent at Loffice – Library Office! Planning the 24/7/365 work called ‘life’, with focus on puzzling together a weekly schedule. Amine K is from Morocco, and this was a nice, melodic, groovy flow. Perfect work-a-music!

A roundup of recent playlists! | #music

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!

A Roundtrip | #NadineTheHeroine

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!
