A littlebit of everything

I got my own studio!

aaI got my own studio! From next year I have my own studio. I feel grateful and touched, I will always be my landlords forever grateful. I can not believe that soon I can start painting again, create again. Oh so I have missed to create

!
My thoughts are spinning of everything I can do and I’m lucky I’m free from work a few nights so I can land.

I have several illustrations waiting and I have several manuscripts that have been waiting for my attention .  It is my promise for the new year. To give everything that has been waiting for me, to give it time.  . My brushes and colors are currently in the attic, waiting for my next move. Soon I can start paint again in my own studio.

I feels gratetude and happiness for what life have given me in art and….yes…. in patience…. and to not forget,  in knowledge.

I was so nearly to give up….

In the list

Another day I went to  cut my long hair, it was one of the things I had written in my list of things I should do.  In my new life, I’ll go and cut my hair. 🙂

I know, that sounds crazy, maybe typically female`? But I felt like a new person when I left the hairdresser.


But from one thing to another, a much more important thing in my list. I need a studio.

Today, soon, from one hour from now,
I will go to a meeting   and we shall  talk about the possibly  of hiring a studio.

A new start.

Finally, a new life. A new start. My Life. My freedom.
A few words that can describe a large part of my wishes that have come true.

Now I have moved to my own home and left behind me all the old and I have left behind me more than the house.

I feel grateful. You know, freedom taste a bit salty.

These last two months have been very intense, a huge mix of packing up on days and working at nights. But now, before the end of November 2017, I can sit and rest my soul to the song of the fire.

Did I need to say that I love the little house that I have been lucky enough to rent and move to.?

My new life has begun.

Burned-out fall

aaP6070310Now I have got all the results from the blood test I have taken. I know that many of you have been concerned about my health. I thank you and I was touched by your thoughtfulness. Do not worry, everything looked ok.

What happened may have been a combination of that I’ve had some reduced strength after the flu that I’ve been with for about four weeks, plus some other things that happened. that threw me back several years back in time.

I know I have many here who have gone through a similar journey in terms of burnout.

We may have had different trips and reasons why we suddenly crashed. These words is directed from me to you.

Find the source of why. Start from there. Believe me, you have more power and strength than you can even imagine. Believe me, I know! Those who burn out are the strongest and we have fallen and fallen and fallen several times but always   lift us off the ground over and over again until the day came where we could no longer stand up. But it is possible to come back . Start with to give you time to feel who you are, search the source of the pain, do something about it, change direction of your life and make the changes that´s needed.

It may take time, it may take years, but it is possible. While that sometimes it will happens whats happened to me last Friday, something triggers a real event, but remember this: you have gone through purgatory so many times and you have been strengthened by it. Also keep in mind that if you has been burned out so there will always be the “burning out” latent in the dark, but do not let it take over the light in you.

Breathe deeply, focus, lift up your chin and say to yourself: I can. I’m ready. I know my strength and what I can achieve.

I forgot one very important thing.
Be aware that now and then you will fall sometimes. I had forgotten it and it left its mark this weekend but hopefully I have it in mind the next time this happen.’

If you are aware about it, your consciousness will take the most of its pain before you hit the ground , and eventually you will barely feel later of these burned-out fall.

Don’t forget to be human, feel both joy and sorrow. You’re not a robot. Feel the life.

Hugs to you. You who know what I’m talking about.

From Spring to Autumn

Today it was a little colder than yesterday. It looked almost as if nature shifted, from on day to another, from Spring to Autumn. Still, it feels odd to shoot with my Iphone.

When the winter darkness came, I spent the rest of the day taking down the Christmas Season.

Time is out of joint

It was with a strange feeling to take a walk today. It felt like it was Spring in the air, far from Winter.

Time is out of joint, one can write like this in English? Google translate wrote yes.:)

In this up side down inverted weather, back from the walk, I took the change to make some gardening.

Later in the evening I spent one hour painting.

It was a tranquil and relaxing  way to celebrate the first day of the new year.

 

 

Happy New Year!

To all of you, around the world, I wish you
a peaceful happy end to the year and an amazing creative 2016.
Thank you for all comments and support during this year.

Let us not forget those who can not celebrate this New Year Eve, because of escape of war or because of other reasons.

Let us hope that peace comes 2016 and people can united with their loved ones.

Happy New year from me to you.

The reader

 

The Reader near the lake.

The other day I was in Hjo, the neighboring town. I took a walk with my camera. It was a long time since I took these photo walks.

I have given me a promise that next year I will try to resume these photo walks but also painting more focused. This year has been so busy with so much else that I had to do that I have not had time for half of what I would have wanted to do.
But everything has it’s perfect time….

6 June Drummers, shows and publication.

Two things I did on the Swedish National Day, 6th June.  I went and listened to this group. Burundi Drummers in Sweden. I  loved the rhythm. The smiles, the happening they shared.

Then I went to the locale where Karlsborgs photo club kept to.  We had a great show there. Here is my contribution.

Nothing is impossible. Harry Houdini (a Hungarian-American illusionist and stunt performer, noted for his sensational escape acts.) of today. A series I photographed in London two years ago.
