He was Outstanding

Will there ever be another conductor like him! No, of course not! He was just outstanding! He was one of the reason I started to enjoy classic music. How fascinated I became. Keeping the whole orchestra so strong in ones hands. Fantastic I thought and still think.

In Herbert von Karajan I also found that special sensitivity. I always look for that when it comes to artists of all kinds. Musicians as well as dancers.

Tonight at the premier of ”In our Past – We have the Present” and I met him. My – now – favorite choreographer. Actually he is the director. He was happy I came, he said, after the performance. Most happy I was – of course. How hard he had worked, I noticed. But now ”paid off” with ovations and applauds. He really has a wonderful dance group for his national dance theatre. I got three new favorites tonight. I had Alexandra (left) first and has still of course. She is also outstanding!

Favorite dancers - Budapest
My two favorite female dancers.

One more female dancer now and two male dancers. They have classic schooling – which I want for contemporary dancers. Otherwise it tends to be more gymnastic than dance. So many practicing classic dance and when they grow up they have ‘wrong’ body measures for classic dancers. Life is hard for them. Luckily they can have a career as contemporary dancers.

With Love – QUEEN in Life

I saw you. In cyber. I wanted you! So very much. Said it was perfect and that you looked so smart. You answered. You looked upon me with younger eyes. Didn’t see me as ‘ an old woman’.  In a way you are right. My soul is young and so is my heart. But! My years are my treasure chest. I want every single to be counted up to date. I like my age. Actually I love my age. It’s just so perfect for me!
So is you!

queen of life

I cannot wait …. I know you will arrive in a few days …

Never underestimate an old WOMAN born in June - listening to QUEEN


You suggested but I wanted …

Men Kämpig

Vilken tid! Då bodde jag med min familj i Abu Dhabi och Dubai. Då startade jag en modebutik i Kävlinge – av alla platser. Butiken gav jag namnet Step in Style. Jag sålde märkeskläder – Getti Spa, X-it, Boomerang, Dobber, Lee … Jag hann både starta och sälja butiken. Sedan flyttade vi till Bjäre för ekologisk odling. Jag skaffade första efterlängtade egna hunden och första hästen. Goliath en riesenschnauzer och Mia en vacker nordsvensk. Det var en spännande tid där mycket hände under en kort tidsrymd. Katter hade vi också förstås. Ulle-Missan som var yngsta dotterns samt Assi. Samt Cirkus som vi trodde var en kattpojk tills hon fick ungar. En underbar tid. Så oerhört intressant med ovärderliga erfarenheter. Men kämpig!

oh la la
that fashion – huge
shoulder pads

Great Fashion - X-it Sweden.
Tror till och med att jag hann ta ett steg in i politiken innan 90-talet startade. Det gjorde jag eftersom jag påtagligt upplevde bristen på barnperspektiv i de politiska besluten som rörde mina elever. Vilken erfarenhet! Alla borde göra några år inom den praktiska kommunala politiken! Man får ovärderlig erfarenhet omkring hur samhällsfunktionerna fungerar … eller inte fungerar.
Fax, telex och sedan köptes också första datorn till företaget. Sonen skapade musik på datorn och jag skötte ekonomin i tre aktiebolag. Himmel! Fick köpa till minne till datorn ideligen.

Skrivpuff: 80-talet.


Heaven and Earth

A new future – it works well with my release. I have not forgotten that I promised where in the world I would like to go and live …. if …
I like dreaming – but not in pink clouds – it must have a touch of reality – perhaps imagine is a better word than dreaming? Or … I like to picture?
I like to imagine … how it would like … if … I even like the word ‘if’ …

if imagine
picturing that far away – new life
namasté
said and done – aborigines
sharing heaven and earth

I find the greeting ‘namasté’ beautiful and humble. It works very well without a God. We are one and equal. Sun and Moon. Heaven and Earth.
Humble and powerful at the same time. Neither subservient or superior.

that haka
filled with spiritual power
meeting
that namasté so humble
like a fire in the calm sea bay

Did you notice I gave a clue? Do you know about haka?

We are coming closer. But it’s so far away. A beautiful country with exciting nature. And also so interesting people. And all that special kind of tattoos. Telling a story and so personal done. It’s not like here where you go to the tattoo artist and say you want a tiger on your arm. There the tattoo says something spiritual and special about that specific person.
So when I go to New Zealand I must get to know an aborigine tattoo artist … and very well … and then hopefully … he will give me … my special tattoo.
I will probably live on the North Island and in or close to maori area.

Why New Zealand?

I just find it so immensely interesting.

Imagine a really nice kind of living in nice climate and with inexhaustible opportunities for discovery and adventure. Hopefully its not expensive to live there.

Welcome to immigration New Zealand. New Zealand Government. Facts about New Zealand. New Zealand people.

How great thou art! – ELVIS

Tidigare berättelser om Lisen.

Lisen är begeistrad. Hon har fått biljett till en konsert. Hon ska äntligen få se och få träffa sin idol. Lisen dansar runt på små moln och hennes skugga hinner knappt med i alla virvlarna. Resan går till Memphis och Graceland. Lisen behöver inte tänka på något mer än upplevelser. Allt är planerat allt är arrangerat. Hon ska bo på Graceland. Hon ska träffa ELVIS.
Lisen blev tillfrågad om vilken hennes favoritlåt med ELVIS är. Han skulle framföra den speciellt för henne, fick hon veta. Hon blev helt ställd! Hon blev totalt blockerad. Kom inte på en enda låt! Panik!
Lisens skugga var tvungen att agera. Men hur?
Lisens skugga tittade intensivt på Lisen och försökte nypa henne. Som för att väcka henne. Hon försökte sjunga. Hon till och med kröp in i Lisens öra för att skrika ut en ELVIS-låt i örat. Inget väckte Lisen.
Men något måste väcka henne för detta vidunderliga tillfälle! Måste!
Med ens förstod Lisens skugga att hon måste komma på rätt låt för att kunna väcka Lisen.
Hon kröp in i örat igen och började sjunga.
– How great thou art! utropade Lisen.

Skrivpuff: Titta.

Ps. Utan att vara religiös! … tycker jag att detta är en helt fantastisk sång – så mäktig!

Dragonfly - Macro Close up

Complicated dragonfly

I love MACRO shooting!
I like to examine the details in my photos.
I love dragonflies – They look so funny, they are so social and follow me around and they are really complicated built.

Daily prompt: Complicated.

The stormy you

Storm of kisses

Daily Prompt: Storm.

You approached
silently
I felt a soft kiss on my cheek
I shut my eyes
hoped for another kiss
Today seemed to be the day
for generosity
I was overwelmd with
the warmest kisses
All over my face
All over my body
I love the stormy
you.

 

Africa Reframed

Guests at Africa Reframed

Daily Prompt: Guest.

Last Sunday I went to Copenhagen with my granddaughters. We went to see an art exhibition – AFRICA REFRAMED. We all 3 liked it a lot. It was colorful, interesting and brought a lot of reflecting thoughts.

Like these about POLLUTION …

Some stylish art with a sport theme …

One of my favorites:
Africa Reframed
”What happened to the world?” I think ….
”What people thought was so right to do then – showing later to be so fatally wrong” …
… and we are still doing it …


Love to share the interest of ARTS with my granddaughters ❤
