A talented photographer that will go far in this world. I happen to have had the pleasure to have worked with him a few times, which I am very proud over.
You can view his website here: www.jonbergman.com
It's a stunning site full of Inspirational images in various fileds such as fashion, music and art.
Yes, the top is a very cool self portrait of the artist himself. The second image is of our dear friend, and too a photographer with lots of talent, Lowe Seger.
I've loved Mauro Scocco since I was a teen, I Still Love him.
He's got new music up on his site: www.mauroscocco.se
When I met my friend Hanna (Madame Hanna Liska at MNO PR) the other day at cafe Gateau, we sat next to him, and funnily enough: I am in Awe of him still as a grownup.
When I was little I thought he resembled my Father, and so when I listened to the music of Mauro, I got this longing loving feeling towards him. When I became a couple of years older, listening to Mauro, I thought of whomever I had a crush on....
Still love his voice, his sense of longing for love and closeness.

This amazing biography touched my heart to the core.
I am Stunned by how far Miss Jeannette Walls has come in her life despite the obstacles she had to face.
She was deeply neglected by her parents but somehow she took charge of her life as a teen; to get out of there, to be able to experience something else in her life. This should be for all of us amazingly inspirational.
Too how she has forgiven her parents and managed to love them dearly, is another level of Amazing inspiration.
I don't want to to tell you her life story, you should read it for yourself.
Here is Jeannette Walls’ reaction to her memoir:
"While I was writing “The Glass Castle”, I kept asking myself, ‘Who is going to care about the life story of some pathetic little girl and her wacky family?’ Sure, my past was eventful, but it was so different from most, that I was afraid no one would connect with it. I would just seem a little freakish. For a memoir to work, I believe, the writer’s experiences have to resonate with others people’s. Who could relate to someone who slept in a cardboard box, often went hungry and ended up living on Park Avenue while her parents went homeless?
Perhaps the thing that has shocked me most about the reception to “The Glass Castle” has been how so many people have connected to the story. “Sure, my life wasn’t quite as dramatic as yours,” they say, or words to that effect, “but there are elements that reminded me of my own story.” Then they reveal stunningly intimate details about their own lives, sometimes things that they had never told anyone before. And I see the person in a new light — always in a more positive sympathetic way.
Whenever I hear someone’s personal history, it always makes me like them more — even if the information is supposedly negative. It helps me understand them. I suppose that’s one of the reasons I enjoy being a gossip columnist. But the ironic thing is that I didn’t realize that people would respond that way to my story, too."
As for me; this story is about Love, Hope and Forgiveness! it is why I love any piece of art, so be it a painting, movie, book or a fashion story. It is all about just these things.
As I've heard from one of those places: "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."
For some reason I have so many things on my mind right now, and I can't seem to focus. None the less focus on Alice. Or mabye that is just it, I am too much like Alice that I am starting to talk and think in riddles.
Anyhow, here are some inspirations I have now. Seem like they do not fit together? Maybe so! It does not really matter.

"People are taught that pain is evil and
dangerous ... Pain is meant to wake us
up ... You feel your strength in the
experience of pain ...Your feelings are
part of you ... If you feel ashamed of
them, and hide them, you're letting
society destroy your reality. You should
stand up for your right to feel your

I saw this beautiful movie, "Sagan" yesterday afternoon. And I felt so in touch with Miss Francoise Sagan, such a sad spirit but at the same time wanting so much out of life. The two I find, often come combined.
We follow Miss Sagan from the day she gets her first book published, Bonjour Tristesse. When she's thrown into celebrity ,a life of excess and freedom that comes with money.
Her relationships, lovers, her son together with the publishers are the ones we follow from her/them being young to old age. How one discover what life is really about. How one just want to have fun, only to discover that all is just Tristesse.
Amazing performance by Sylive Testud who played Francois Sagan but too, great work of the whole rest of the cast.
