PROFESSIONAL PUBLICITY

For a long time, the media has focused on reporting personal attributes, rather than content. In other words, most people who become famous through media, become it by referral to who they are in relation to others, usually in a negative sense or because the one they are relating to also is famous.

That is not my preferred way...

Ubbe_Telluselle

Today I went back to Mårten Ubbe at Nyréns Architects, who is working with me to develop a Plumeria-shaped flower in bamboo for my lei, similar to a necklace, which hopefully can become manufactured and sold further on...

THE NATURAL UNION

I have been pondering how the natural elements can be understood in the circle of life both as a way to balance Mother Earth and ourselves in terms of ensuring that the dynamics between them are proportional. It is one thing to read someone else’s description in a book, and another to try to see it for ourselves by experience and definition through our own sense of connection.

I believe that Metal...

FLASHBACK SATURDAY

Have you ever watched a movie where someone is grasping for an item and then suddenly an unexpected review or sequence is played up? That is called a flashback (as well as used to describe premonitions if the sequence is forward motioned) common for people with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.  I had another today, except that my life isn’t a movie.

I was out looking in small mall for a pair of wi...

CREATING WITH OUR HEARTS

How can I make something that is beautiful enough so the source of origin will feel that it is an enhancement to be proud and part of?

The reason why I want to start my business in the US is because there is where I got the inspiration for most of my work...

IT’S A MATTER OF TRUST

What will I do with all the money that I will receive from the producers of “Orange is the New Black” season 2 – who have used my content in “Under the Wings of Freedom” without my permission, payment and credits?

I will create a trust fund in my name from the profit after I get paid for my expenses and work, where all people mentioned in my book will be eligible to apply for a grant towards a cau...

COLORED VIEWS

Can we ever describe another person without mentioning their race in a multi-cultural country like the United States? Is there a difference between race and nationality? And how far back does our heritage count, not just in matters of identity but for administrative purposes such as redefining immigration and citizenship.

While I lived in Hawaii, the feeling of using such terms like nationality an...

NUANCES IN OUR OUTLOOK

Have you ever wondered if those rose-colored glasses you are wearing are real? Or which ever else you choose for the day as you set out to meet the world?

I found a new and better Optometrist that gave me a new prescription today for progressive lenses...

THE PURPLE AUNTIE

How do you write and edit your book? To me it is a matter of length. Whenever I write a single post, I just write. Sometimes I jot down an idea, an expression or the like first and then write. And sometimes I plan a text to become a sales-pitch.

When I write an article or essay, I do research first, a mind-map for summary and then focus on the conclusion.

When I write a book it is more of a layer...

THIS IS HOW I ROLL…

Had a great meeting today with an architectural firm who are going to make a sample of a Plumeria to me for my Bamboo Lei.

knee_plumeria

Since going directly to a carpenter didn’t really work, I asked a teacher of a woodworking class at a nearby elementary school for assistance, who recommended me to contact White since they produce laser-cut models, but they only do it in paper and plastic, so I was referred ...

DEVELOPING IN THE MOMENT

A yogi takes a deep breath, closes her eyes and assume a position on her mat.

A dancer takes a deep breath, takes in the room and moves in relation to others.

Yoga, to me, is a tool for personal development which enabled me after five years of practice 2000-2004 to take up dancing again...

DOINGS 2014

Now that we are approaching Thanksgiving – my favorite American holiday that I wish we would celebrate in Sweden – I like to go through all that I am grateful for, which embrace all that I have but also what I have accomplished, because as Co-creators it is important to take stock of what we have created.

In 2014 I have:

* Finished compiling my blog, writing, editing, designed and published the fi...

RECOGNIZING WORTH

Have you ever held a personal signed check with the figure 2.5 million US dollars on it?

I have.

In order for us to recognize the worth in others, we must first recognize the worth in ourselves. And sometimes people come along to show us that they do. This has a parallel perspective in how we define giving and receiving...

OAK VERSUS BAMBOO

While searching for material to my prototype for a Bamboo Lei, I have noticed here in Stockholm that there aren’t very many products made of bamboo, if any at all, such as cutting boards, bowls and the like. Instead there seem to have become a trend to use a thinner kind of oak look-alike to bamboo...
