little lessons of zen


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.

3xeveryday magic.

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.

(but i think i will just skip it all together)

happy midsummer to all of you! i will pluck seven kind of flowers and dream important dreams.

a little thursday

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.

little walk

_MG_3315   _MG_3302_MG_3318

these pictures where taken around 9.30 pm. the light is simply mesmerizing in sweden right now.

i love to walk on those vast, open fields. it is similar to being next to the ocean, makes me feel small in a very good way.

the wedding

bombastic! wouldn’t know how else to describe it. i felt a little bit like the little duckling next to all the swans, but even ducks know how to have a good time. especially when there is champagne and candy floss involved.

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.


i can’t post pictures for some unknown, strange reason. it annoys me slightly.

love and thoughts.

the only normal people are the one's you don't know very well


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?

i ate five scoops of ice cream today. coconut/almonds, figs/walnuts, caramel cookies, cheesecake and pistachio. (i convinced myself that a ridiculous amount of sugar will do good for my cold)

five! beat that if you can!
