something else

i can recommend a wonderful inspirational podcast, the new york public library . i learn so much in each episode. in a recent episode   the daughter of johnny cash, rosanne was interviewed (listen here). she shared such beauty.

among what she shared was this poem by galway kinnell. this is for anyone going through difficult times. or for anyone to just appreciate beauty.

wait

wait, for now.
distrust everything, if you have to.
but trust the hours. haven't they
carried you everywhere, up to now?
personal events will become interesting again.
hair will become interesting.
pain will become interesting.
bud that open out of season will become lovely again.
second-hand gloves will become lovely again,
their memories are what give them
the need for other hands. and the desolation
of lovers is the same: the enormous emptiness
carved out of such tiny beings as we are
asks to be filled; the need
for the new love is faithfulness to the old.

wait.
don't go too early/
you're tired. but everyone's tired.
but no one is tired enough.
only wait a while and listen.
music of hair,
music of pain,
music of looms weaving all our loves again.
be there to hear it, it will be the only time,
mos of all to hear,
the flute of your whole existence,
rehearsed by the sorrows, play itself into total exhaustion.

beautiful creatures. 
SUCH ON THAT!

the voice of johnny cash with daughter rosanne
together 
with 
my 
sweetness

an afternoon

love
alice

oh 

yes
thanks to a zara i now know how to perfectly use my zenit-e

this kitten....has transformed my life. yesterday i was so sad over lost time & such things,  all i could think of before coming home was PLEASE sweetness come visit. it took 30 seconds and she was with me:))))) my friend ella told me that cats sometimes enters ones life to save ones soul. i think that is it. this love came to my life for a reason.

i am featured in the swedish church london's magazine. it's quite a heavy issue so i contributed with beauty and a very personal poem by nils ferlin. my dad with siblings put that poem on the announcement of my grandma passing away in our local newspaper (called bohuslänningen covering the area of bohuslän in sweden). since this issue was focused on loss and wishing loved ones back this little page sort of tied together it all for some hope.

the lovely cover looks like this
if you know swedish, one can read this magazine

our life is a fairy tale
a dream
it shimmers in the rainbow colors
for a minute
....
then
it bursts and falls
the dream is over

cherry blossom girl

vårt liv är en vindfläkt,
en saga, en dröm

en droppe som faller
i tidernas ström

den skimrar i regnbågens färg
en minut

brister och faller
och drömmen är slut

- nils ferlin

now i am off for a couple of ballet classes at the studio of pineapple. i wish you could be there too:) these people in there are just wonderful. it's just the openness and happiness that one is there to share the beauty of our passions. then i am back home to hopefully see some magic in my wild flower garden and for sweetness to come visit:)))

i wish you a magic happy
