K as in Karin! | #Wishlist2017

My intention to place a wish daily, during the month of July, made a halt. For reasons? I dunno. Or, well. I know. Reasons, there are. Meaning, the deeper! With that said, I can only state one thing. Beyond the pause button was hit, life took turns of the unexpected. My love and Partner-For-Life-Whatever-The-FKK-HAPPENS – KARIN – has been hit with that shit. CANCER. BREAST CANCER. The full story, told by her self, in her own voice – is at her blog. And yes, it is in Swedish. Not a problem in these days. Just use Google Translate. Some short…

10. J as in Japan! | #Wishlist2017

36 images of Mount Fuji in different contexts and from different views, from the artist Hokusai – where you most certainly recognize the one on the top left. The Great Wave of Kanagawa. One of the most spread artworks, yes – pop art in its true sense. But, I want to see Mount Fuji. Live! Japan, certainly, is on my Bucket List! A deep wish to go there! And yes, it’s not a secret – my passion for Aikido, the japanese Budo form. An integrated part of my life, where Aikido, metaphorically, is a core sense and expression of my…

9. I as in Inspiration! | #Wishlist2017

The immaterial wishes continues to dominate my wishlist for 2017, a wishlist exercise which I aim to establish as a tradition, beyond my birthday. An exercise done during vacation and holiday times! What I felt during some time, is a bit of lack of inspiration, especially when it comes to create texts or music. My blogging has went down in speed and frequency beyond the #blog365 challenge 2016, and writing more extended essays or texts haven’t been taking place since ending up writing the first full draft of my book that never went into full publishing all the way, or…

8. H som i Helger! (Weekends) | #Wishlist2017

Helger. Ja, helger! Vad önskar jag mig av dem? Först och främst – jag vill ha massa fler av dem framåt längs min livsväg! Jag vill spendera dem med min Karin, och om några jordvarv, då och då med både barn och sen kanske till och med barnbarn? Se min önskan gällande dagar! Och jag önskar dem lugna och sköna. Då ges utrymme för återhämtning och annat pyssel som inte får plats måndag till torsdag. Torsdag? Ja, vi vill ha weekendkänsla redan på fredagen! Som denna helg! I fredags, på ett lekspring på dryga fem km, fångade jag solens nedgång…

2. B som i Basinkomst! (Basic Income) | #Wishlist2017

Ett evenemangsnäste på Gotland har kickat igång. Han som stod på lastbilsflaket har för länge sedan sett grunden för det rämna. Initiativtagaren, alltså. Nämner inga namn, of reasons. Fokuserar istället på B, i bloggutmaning – Basinkomst! Jag önskar en lyhörd, öppen, nyfiken, (ömsesidigt) respektfull och kärlekstörstande konversation i och om det. Överallt. Just, så. Ord, inga visor. Text, inga bilder. Nu, sova. Punkt.  

Blogg 100 – sixth year in general, fifth year for me! | #CommunityWednesday #blogg100

We are #blogg100 – the community of bloggers who take on the challenge to blog 100 postings a day, in one flow! I couldn’t resist taking part this year again :). After completing my self-defined challenge #blog366 last year – one posting, every day, during one year, I felt I needed a break from that tempo, and during February, my blogging frequency decreased. A break needed to find energy to also write about something beyond the most important I have – my family! Some important stuff has happened lately, regards my web presence. I have activated my dormant Instagram account again,…

When dropping out is moving in! | #31meditations

I joined the challenge 31 meditations (31 meditations in 1-31 January), due to its collective momentum in Sweden. I tried to find my own take on it. A stream-of-consciousness meditation, letting free an association stream of “m-words”.  Then, something happened. I was letting go. And this weekend, I got back to my ordinary routine, XXL, due to a lumbago. Gratitude. Yoga. Meditation. The #GYMSession! And the deep regular meditation on my Yantra mat really was out of this world! But! As with mantras, the content, flow and outcome of these meditations, in their full experiences, is profoundly non-bloggable! By nature!…

Minister | #31meditations

Today’s …mmmmmmmm… word (such a good sound to vibrate when meditation, came to be minister. Relevant these days when shift of power you-know-where takes place. No names mentioned! Taking inspiration from Meryl Streep at the Golden Globe Awards … I reflect on governance and power. In the end, nature is there, with the ultimate powers, striking back when humanity goes astray. Koyaanisqatsi – life out of balance (Hopi Indian word). There we sit, in our sofa. And through the window shines the sun, with its massive energy. Live in harmony and take care of that power, and so much will…

Monrovian | #31meditations

When defining the (blog) challenge of the month of January – 31 meditations in the interval of first to last of January – I went by my meditative intuition in itself on what and how to let it be (re)presented on my blog. And, while having this “meta-meditation”, out came to just let my stream-of-consciousness provide me with 32 words beginning with M. While the first third of these words made some sense in their flow, the eleventh marked a shift.  Out came “Monrovian”. Now, today, “what the heck is that”? Surprisingly enough (irony…), Wikipedia had the answer in length: Monrovia…
