The Ceremony on Thursday. All the big pieces in the puzzle are set. Now, checking guest lists tomorrow, to inform the Bureau! And the program went to print in Valdemarsvik, on courtesy of Hedwig, who has poured down her soul to it! A great piece of work! THANK YOU! I also spoke to Nadine twice, in the afternoon and in the evening, then also to mummy Senada. They arrive tomorrow late night, Nadine sleeps here, Senada at a hotel downtown. Thursday night they leave for Stockholm, before heading home to Eidsvoll in Norway. The Brain Poion of Cortisol is hammering…
Sunday Sushi – Thank You Hanna And Erik! | #MikaMemorial #Countdown #Friends
True friendship lasts forever. Hanna and I met some two decades ago. Thinking about her alot after life took its turns, and his Erik and their kid, and not having direct contact for some years now. Showing up very fast by phone beyond Mika left us for #TheOtherworld. Now. Giving us home delivery food on demand these hectic preparation days! Sushi. Could live on that on a lone island, with my dearest beloved Karin for the rest of my life, methinks … Hai! Thank you Hanna and Erik! Ok. Now dealing with Night Pain and MikaMissing … See you when…
The pre-school shrine | #MikaTheHero
Early morning walk to the pre-school, Nektarinen. I promised myself I would go to his intended school start for the season. Met some personell again, and especially the dedicated teacher who would be our contact person. I sat down at the shrine they made for the kids to sorrow. One of the kids is a truly cuddly love-bomb, and she sat down in my lap where I sat in front of the shrine. She asked; “Is Mika dead?”, and I explained as good as I could, and what he died from. Truly heartbreaking! They will have the memorial moment planting…

Living the grief – and finding the healing | #MikaTheHero #RIP
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…

Visiting my bro’ Anders beyond his brain surgery! | #AndersSporring
Anders has undergone getting a probe in his brain, a so-called DBS – deep brain stimulation. It is there to strongly inhibit or even stop his essential tremor and hopefully also some of his Parkinson shakings. A new life in the loop for Andy! He is surprisingly ok after going through such a thing! The operation took place in Karolinska Hospital, Neurophysiological Dept, this Wednesday, and he is on convalescence until next week! So happy for you, bro’! What an upgrade! Andy, v. 8.0 – The Bionic Man, now with TWO Pacemakers! How cool is that? And the new one…
Drafting A Thesis Sketch! | #Music4Health
Finally! Got truly into the deepest of writing flow today, when I got focused energy to finalize the first draft of a Thesis Sketch! Hopefully something developing to a full-fledged Synopsis, mature enough to attract further resources. Now sent to my mentor and professor emeritus Bengt Johannisson for response. Happy to see all years of thoughts materialize to this level! And yes – live as you learn! Music for productivity, and the focused social setting at the silent reading room at the University Library really got me disciplined! Almost five hours efficient time. Oh yes! And not that exhausted either….
A visit to Hanna, Daniel and little Luna | #friends
A very nice Sunday, with Luna turning one years old! Congratulations! And thanks for the Paw Patrol towel that Mika got as a gift as well.
Home. Again! Where I belong! | #Love
