Ivan – The Dragonfly

Idag har Ivan namnsdag. Min pappa hette Ivan – Ivan Leo Magni. Min farmor var verkligen påhittig när det gällde namn på sina sju söner. Hon fick en dotter också. men lilla Edith dog före fyra års ålder. Vilken sorg det måste varit. Min lilla farmor var helt underbar.

Jag fick besök idag. Helt oväntat. Otroligt överraskande! Hur hittade han till mig!? Dessutom stannade han hela eftermiddagen. Tog några korta utflykter då och då.

på ett strå
några ögonblick av sitt liv
mitt hjärtas vän

Klart jag döpte mitt fantastiska besök till Ivan. Jag tycker mycket om Trollsländor. Det verkar som de gillar mig också. De brukar följa efter mig när jag är ute men Ivan sökte upp mig. Vackrare än någon jag någonsin sett i Lund innan.

Memorable Kiss

I also want to see Matsuo Basho as my master of haiku.

a day of quiet gladness,
Mount Fuji is veiled
In misty rain.    © Basho

I have had this kind of day today – a day of gladness – together with my oldest grandchild. Not exactly quiet but in great and deep confidence about life and sharing. Talking about important issues and feelings. In connection characterized by love and understanding. The most important life values I can imagine. How thankful I can be – and I am.
Everybody reflect about the question:
What’s the meaning of life?
My answer is:
To raise children who takes (very) good care of their – also other’s –  children and raise them to good and caring humans.
… oh my wonderful grandchildren … oh my dear children … you have done so well!
above all tops
no mountain can reach – true
humanity to find
I have my two worlds and I am so thankful for them. My roots in Sweden – so very deep – I can follow back when starting the records – early 1600. And my step out into the gem of Europe – center of culture and performing arts – a ”melting pot of all people” – as I see Budapest in Hungary. As you know I find people outstanding the most interesting .. and in Budapest I can mingle anonymously as much as I ever want. I love it! I appreciate it so much. Soon I will take off again! Lots of events planned.
But … I think you would never guess where in our world I would like to move if I could have my inner wish come true …. Try! … You have a chance to guess now.
dear mountain
keeping a mother’s deepest
of all truth
… and I promise my warmest hug and a memorable kiss for the right answer!
