— So, eight years ago, a little wonderboy was born. And now, he’s gone. Our little wonderboy! How you survive such stuff? Don’t ask. We just do. I’ve restored my power to create and joy of life. But when the pain hits, it hits like hell. Not staying that long as it used to. And memories of joy can be restored. With melancholy. Yes, reaching far in the tough work called “sorrow”. In my multi-traumatic life, surviving PTSD and living with back and forth with anxiety to levels of the unbearable sometimes, I have fully returned to pursue and…

My 54th Birthday | #Birthday #Me
Five birthday photos. Four with Mika alive. What was intended as a tradition, was broken. My annual birthday photo with my kids. And, with Mika in The Otherworld, and with Nadine home in Norway due to covid-19 restrictions, this had to be the way instead. My kids, framed. Mika as a four year old from June 6, 2019, and Nadine when she was five from Spring 2012. It was a great day anyways, eating at a restaurant a meal with three small dishes, and afterwards going to the Carl Johan Park for an ice-cream! Thank you Karin!
Mika’s Birthday – Should Have Turned 5 Years Today | #MikaTheHero #MikaTheAngel #Mika5years
Our Hero, born 10.19, May 28, 2015, turning Angel 11.34, Aug 1, 2019, was honoured today. We went to the grave and added some flowers – one rose for Nadine, Karin and me, respectively – and new oil lights. Then we went home and had cake and lit the five year candle, with the five year baloon in the air. Hedwig and Jippii was here today as well, and we watched the photos from the Mika memorial and bye-bye. A big check box ticked, in this painful work that sorrow gives us. Moving on. Mika – I <3 U 4EVAH!

Anders Sporring 60 Years! Hooray Hooray Hooray Hooray! | #AndersSporring #Birthday #Retrospective
I was making a roundtrip to Stockholm to celebrate my brother from another mother, Anders “Andy” Sporring, turning 60 years! We went to his daughter Melissa with family in Värmdö, and celebrated with his closest friends and family as well – Mikael, Eric, Jenny and son-in-law with family, and grandchildren. A truly memorable event, ending very very late in the night, with Anders summarizing his life story – so far! I love you Andy!
Soto Five Years – Hooray Hooray Hooray Hooray! | #SotoTheCat #Birthday
Our Guardian Cat On-Top-Our-Herd-Hierarchy Soto (born/register name Pinkalicius’ Pralin, Holy Birman) turns five years today! Two photo stories getting Soto in a Nutshell! First – drinking water. Then! What moves? Another cat! Bam! Gone into the dark! Who is in the Kitchen? Next, also from bedtime – literally! When I’ve done my teeth brushing and other go-to-bed preparations, entering bedroom. Soto with a sharp eye on me! Then – when we have found to be still and calm for a while. Enter middle! But leaning on Mother Karin, since Birmans usually lean on loyalty towards one in the first place….
A Bonus Birthday | #HappyBirthday
