I received an interesting email the other day with information about how to publish an Audiobook. That made me feel inspired to produce one, or both, in that media category as well. I also aim to make a good presentation video, which I am pondering about…
Perhaps certain things should be read, as to evoke imagery, emotion and fantasy for the reader...
I learned Yoga through teachings by Annette Larsson and Melanie (forgot her last name, Swiss Modern dance teacher) in Malmö, beginning in year 2000. I have since then developed my own little program with a combination of a couple warm-up sequences based on Dance and Pilates, and then regular Ashtanga Yoga...
I have learned to think and speak like an inmate. But I have also learned how to think and speak like a federal agent. And I like it.
Nobody could ever fool me before either, but I wasn’t always assertive enough to call others on their attempts of painting a picture of themselves that aren’t real, less of me. Because I have always known how to read another’s soul and see truth.
People here in Sw...
When I became a vegetarian (+ fish) in 1996, I also developed a more profound interest in cooking and especially choosing good resources, such as fresh produce. I became vegetarian due to an upset stomach and because I used to work a lot in advertising with foodbrands and suppliers such as the Swedish dairycompany Skånemejerier and Nestlé.
It would be more than another decade until I realized t...
Thanks to HPU’s Chaplain Dale Burke I learned how to dress properly in 2010:
“Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Therefore put on the full arm...
I went to buy a new cellphone today with a new prepaid number, since my current one constantly becomes interfered with or disconnected. Found a cheap alternative but when I asked the seller at “Elgiganten” to put in my SIM-card to make sure it would work properly, he refused. Then he asked me to go around to the cashiers while he went the other direction with it...
I’ve started up my former routine of going to the beach right before sunset to clear out the day.
Today, I noticed a small family with a little boy playing with a plastic shark. The boy reminded me of Jesse Getchell.
When I walked by I said it was a cute fish and smiled to myself while I recited a silent blessing as I was reminded of Hawaiian traditions where a shark can be referred to as a gu...
I got to experience unconditional love during my second longer stay in Hawaii 2010-12. It’s one of those kinds that places itself in one of the closest compartments in our heart.
He is Black.
I am White.
He is Muslim.

Yet, the friendship I had with Quentin was one of a kind.
I had been receiving financial assistance from various churches on Oahu...
On July 25th 2012, I was deported back to Sweden and landed at the Arlanda airport in Stockholm escorted by Mike Young and Kathy Makaena from the US Immigration Customs Enforcement. As soon as we entered the hall towards the Swedish customs, I asked for my passport that Mike was holding so that I could show it. But he didn’t want to give it to me...
