Here you see great motherhood in action! Love this pic (which was featured in Norrköpings Tidningar the other week – by Linnea Hellqvist), captures the joy and love vibe in between Mika and Karin. An everlasting bond! I love you, Karin – AkroMom!
Imorgon blir min älskade Karin 40 år! Mitt i slutfasen av hennes behandling för att driva ur that Fucking C så blir det ett mycket lugnt firande med enbart tre vuxna (vi med kära Hedwig, Karins mamma), ett barn (vår älskade Mika) och tre katter (lika älskade), och en hund (Hedwigs hund, såklart lika älskad) i lugn och stillhet hemmavid. I min bok ser jag att hela hennes fyrtioförsta levnadsår ska firas både här och där med både det ena och det andra! Så för mig är det som att fira ett nyår! Kalendrar är ju egentligen ett mänskligt påhitt….
Screenshot of Nadine and me in Arvika Library. Just reunited IRL. With little brother Mika and Karin, Sofa Corner in our Casa. Now, all fine, all here, all as it should be, all is alright. Eleven days ahead, Nadine here. Yay! Breathe in. Breathe out. Good Night!
While Little Jinder interpreted Freddie Wadling today on the Swedish TV show ‘Så Mycket Bättre’, as a way to enforce and induce hope, love and joy … Mika. Love Hero. In Play! Captured by Karin ♡.
Only me and the cats here, IRL, in our home today. But in distance, phonetalks with friends, conversations on stuff that really matters on FB webs, and chats with text, voice, images and video with family distributed, making solitude and ‘longiness’ (longing in loneliness) something manageable to carry! Longing for my full family to be in our house again! Mika and Mommy Karin back tomorrow, Nadine here next time Dec 29! I intend to blog on some findings I did today, for tomorrow, related to things that happenened Friday and that happens on Tuesday. And BTW … no TV today!…
A tower full of cats, yes! Including Mika … He has learnt how to climb it as well. This is my family. This is my love. Only Nadine missing. She would be to big to be in the tower!
Mika and mommy playing around. Pure joy! Laughter. Love. Life!
Karin and Mika in one corner, me in the other. Sofa Chill!
The name of this blog – and my personal tagline/vision/mantra/force/motivation – is RE:LOVE THE WORLD. The About Page tells you what this means – “a world, re:loved, is a world where you meet your fellow human being with love and respect, and can expect to be met with the same”. The stream of news last days/months/years can makes your heart dark. But – if we leave all terror and alarmism in the press, the world, in fact, is getting better! There, graphs, presented in conjunction with prof Steven Pinker article in The Guardian – also, check Hans Rosling, always! – a TED…
Sofa life. Chill. We watched Simon’s Cat on YouTube casted to our TV. Mika was all eyes and ears!
These days – thankful for every smile and laugh I can share with my Mika. Where the rest of my life will go is still very unwritten, but two things are crystal clear. I have meaning with my kids, my family, our little bubble of a world. I have meaning in love in its expressions as they manifest in the flow of my life. Thank you life, for giving me these!
We celebrated Hedwigs birthday at her home, eating cake and a very good dinner at her place, “Hedwigsborg”. Afterwards we enjoyed the early summer at the little beach in Grännäs with all in good restful spirit – Mika, Jippii the Eurasier, Karin, Hedwig, me. Thank you for a wonderful day!
