We made a little roundtrip to Valdemarsvik today – on demand by Mika! We took his whole wooden train set with us – following his strong will. A great little mini vacation. Thanks Hedwig for your hospitality and generosity!
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!
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!
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 ……
Mika collected a bunch of books and sorted them in piles, with some assistance from daddy. Where? In bed! Even books needs sleep, he thinks. A good idea and something to learn here. Rest your brain. Rest your books! With that said. Good night!
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.
Yes! Did it. Evaluating exercise? Well, maybe. Blogging daily? Great habit! Better do it before noon, rather than before Midnight? Definitely! Forming Intention, yes! February, here we come! Yay! Good Night!
Pen and Paper. Still being relevant? Yes. Digital Detox in process beyond New Year’s Eve. Doing fine! And, yeah. An eraser is something lovable too! Good Night!
Today we had a regular checkup to follow up on his heart insufficiency. After the ultrasound cardiography, it was concluded that he now was all well! His heart has normal capacity! Such a releif! Well, ok, his permanent “electrical” heart condition will require pacemaker all through his life, but … like … for heaven’s sake! We went out to the waiting room and cried! All these years of worry and hardship. Now we can breathe out! He will phase out some of his meds as well in the coming three weeks. Mika is so strong! But! He also complained of…
Day, beyond breakfast. A brilliant documentary. John Lennon: Imagine. Watch it! Beyond domestic services and fika, first event of the year. Gong Bath. Screen dump from my Insta Story. Try it! And last – but not least! Mika’s new outfit! A new pyjamas with motive from his fav kid TV show right now! More on that tomorrow on my Insta! Then, we had a TV Night, with happy Mika in bed in his new outfit. Good Night!
In this corner I have started reading this year’s first book – one I got from the Freecycle book-shelf in the basement outside the laundry room. It’s about mindfulness.
Yesterday Mika and I were up early, playing in his room. Here is the first picture of him I took 2019! I think my blogging will be a mix of the personal and the professional, with family and friends, music, writings, ideas and reflections, projects and events. Let’s see what unfolds!
