yellow happiness

Happiness is often yellow I think.

This piece of happiness is growing in our tiny pedagogical garden.

I miss You my dear blogfriends I'm not so outspoken these days. But all well and knotting my thoughts in the right direction. I'm still trying to figure out how and why to gather my mind and my wish for expression. Maybe I can find the answer in between the question and the answer. My experience though is that that spot is incredibly huge, I don't know where to start.
Our computer is also really slow nowadays so it's hard for me to catch up with You and comment. You are still in my sphere.

We have summer days here, me and the kids are hanging around and enjoying our selves!

Love xx

pink poppy

I'm looking for the organic road
I'm searching for patterns to show me the way
I'm walking that way
it's a pattern
an organic show
I'm looking

I wish
this was our every day life.

When the sun isn't able to shine the ground takes its place for a while. At least here in these yellow fields under the grey sky.

just a minute

So many things has been happening
yet I´m in the same place
surrounding myself with the same surrounding.

a chrysalis
a cycle
a minute
a lifetime
a lifetime
a minute
I take
a minute
in to
a chrysalis
the cycle
a lifetime
the minute
tiny wings
the minute

kär lek

An update for love
Kärlek - Love
The swedish word kärlek is made of the two words kär and lek.
kär - in love
lek - play.
Now go and play in love!


This weeks host of drawing challenge is perfect Hi Happy Panda with map. If You haven´t been visiting Rachel - GO THERE! She shows a wonderful view of Life on her blog.

Now for the map, I´m showing some old work that is still in progress. It´s old as in I started it eleven years ago and Old as in the deepth of knowledge that comes from it, as it comes to me from Timelessness. They are sort of maps or compasses. I often do metaphysical maps. I don´t really know yet how to talk about it/them. And I´m quite brave to show this work... I have rarely shown it for a decade. They are here as well.
The third pic is a map of colour nuances. I save my mixtures in a cover. I am strictly bound to some of the nuances that my inner maps show me. So I really need to know how I got there, at least practically in the mixture process. Because there is no way (yet) for me to theoretically describe or lead the way in or out of my maps, or is there?

I´ll come back with a translation of the first pic.
Now off to the forest, we´ra having a barbecue with some friends. Sweet sunday!

Love Your self
and it will be easier for me,
thank You.


Drawing challenge: mirror. Ain't that an interesting choice?! Visit the clever Ariane for more mirroring!
In my mirror the word KÄRLEK = LOVE
Love Love Love Love

and it's increasing

(hey, Jasmins mirror reminded me of this)

The symbolic value of economy is higher than the economical value of symbolism.

How come then that economy has a higher status than symbolism? It should be the other way around.

Backåkra in my heart.
A stone cirkle for meditation out in the fields in honor of Dag Hammarskjöld. A man who was devoted to Life and Peace.
Here and here and here and here some more pics from our visits to these fields.

the self

So I say to my kids go in to freedom now before we go home.
Because in the city there is not much space to be free. As we all know in freedom there is much space to be me. In freedom You can find Your self.

He stands like this for hours.


The four of us walk in to this piece of Nature together and again all by our selves.
In this extraordinary still life of movement we are allowed to be introvert.


To reach this spot in the south of Sweden. Breathtaking!
We meet only a few other people that found their way this chill day but loads of birds coming in from south-west making formations in the sky line.

Gosh! The Light here is Light!


Biking on these gentle roads in the heart of a fairy forest.


We took the kiddos the dinos and the bikes for a weekend in the wilderness.

A tail as a braid as a tail.

Drawing challenge at sweet Jasmin with tail. Please visit!
and tail if You want!

eyes wide open

Looking at different ways of things to see. Looking at things differently. Looking at different things. Looking different while looking at things. Looking in to looking out. Look out for a good looking way of things to look in to.

the river

Jag flyter på Kristus, floden.
Det lergula gyllene vattnet.
Jag knäpper mina händer ovanför mitt huvud.
Armarna formas till ett öga, ansiktet dess pupill.
Ur djupet av mina anletsdrag minns jag
resans fasta punkt;

I float on Christ, the river.
The ochre golden water.
I fold my hands above my head.
Arms in the shape of an eye, face as a pupil.
From the depth of my features, remembrance
the secure spot of the journey;
the movement.
