birthday little boy! my sisters son is turning 3 today. i wish i could bake him a cake and dance some disco dance in the basement with him. ♥♥♥
p.s i love his smile!
this morning i discovered that i currently live less than five minutes from the sea. five minutes! i practically live on the beach! where have i been the past month?
absentminded&preoccupied? forget that is is temporary and half my home is somewhere else- it is a DREAM COME TRUE!
walking back from the beach i met a bus driver who was chilling out in the trunk of the bus while waiting for his passengers to return and he told me ‘this is life’ and i thought to myself that these are exactly the words i needed to hear.
and yesterday a man working in a kiosk gave me the equivalent of 2 euros since i didn’t have any small change for the laundromat. i thought that was so special, his trust and the generous gesture to a stranger.
tonight my bed was a battle field. between me and the mosquitoes, me and the nightmares, me and the early-bird neighbors slamming doors and running the stairs. i am not sure who was the winner. but today is a new day and here is a new favorite song.
my heart beats faster when looking at these pictures!
love to all of you. embrace life.
despite plucking seven kinds of flowers and doing a little ceremony on my own before going to sleep i couldn’t recall any of my dreams. but i enjoyed the focus and love which was put into it.
and finally i regained some focus in general. enough to stitch little toys filled with lavender and flax seeds. the first project in a long time which i could start and finish without letting myself get distracted by other things. a few hours of active meditation.
thursday a week ago i was still in sweden. and today i probably would have drifted away into space if there wasn’t any gravitation to keep me down. i can’t seem to focus on anything and i keep jumping between different thoughts and different actions, without ever finishing the one before. i am a little bit tired of my own company, someone would like to swap?
in between i read a little bit on this very inspiring blog in hope to find some zen somewhere.
yesterday morning we woke up around 3.15 to watch the sun rise, my father and i. i haven’t experienced the swedish pre-midsummer nights in a long time. oh gorgeous!
i am amazed of how life is so very different and still the same all over the world. that is perhaps a contradiction, but a contradiction which is somewhat true.
yesterday i took my compost with me when i went to the bank and today i am traveling with my sourdough to sweden. nothing odd about that, right?
