I received a comment today, a notification in my emailbox. A reader said she´s noticed I haven´t updated my blog for a while, and was wondering if I wasn´t going to post again soon? 🙂
That felt really good. I actually do have a reader! There are so many spam comments I have to erase, and when I share my posts to my blog´s facebookpage (Kaltwasser Heart Matters), normally I get very few, if any, likes.
Not that I blog for the likes. I blog for my own pleasure, and for the joy of sharing. But it´s still totally motivating to receive a comment from someone saying they miss my posts! very much appreciated indeed.
So. Here I am, updating. The reason I´ve been rather quiet lately, is that I´ve been busy intensively researching the field of online teaching. I have watched I don´t know how many webinars, received free e-books and video series, checked out loads of different people and their models for turning passion into profit, as Rasmus Lindgren puts it. I´ve bought a course from him, on “how to create amazing online courses”. He has positioned himself to be top notch in Denmark in this area of knowledge. The course is good, but a bit…. well, I need more. Both knowledge, and a wider model, more into depth on mindset, time management and client enrollment. So I have made a serious investment into something that looks rather splendid. Visionary Business School, with Ryan Eliason. Wholistic, idealistic, practical, and teaching from his own business experience. He started an ngo called “yes” in the 70s, Youth for Environmental Sanity. He is also a trained hypnotherapist, like myself.
So I´ve received his launch over the last 2 weeks; 4 videos, a book that i read in 5 hours and could not put down… and webinars, a manifest, a mindmap… I trust this guy. I am dead excited to be starting this training in July. For 5 months.
Other than the research, I have been busy getting a lot of rest. And snapchatting with my lovely good girlfriend in Norway. We send eachother video monologues, almost daily! And as I type here now, she is actually in her car, driving towards my house! Gonna visit me for the first time here in my home in Denmark! What a gift. Her presence, such a present. 🙂
I will show her this paradise island, in all its picturesque summer glory… I´m picking her up at the parking lot by the ferry on the mainland side late tonight. Costs a fortune to take the car across, so. I bring a trolly and we load it with her luggage and have a beer on the ferry deck those 12 minutes the ride takes… then, a five minute walk from the harbour, there´s my home. This old post office from 1789. Straw thatched roof, and with half moon shaped “Fanø windows”… cobbled streets and lots of high quality little shops. Best butcher´s in Denmark, bakery, ice cream, glass blower´s, cafés, women´s clothing, knick knacks, galleries… Yeah… I love this place. I really truely do. It relaxes me. I feel at home here like I never did anywhere else I have lived. (Different places in Norway, on Anglesey off the coast in north Wales, in Bahrain…)
We need a song to break up this rant!
I made this film, and recorded him singing. He´s a friend of my husband´s, a local, multitalented musician. The quality of the video is grainy, but. I must have accepted a low resolution from youtube, coz I shot it in 16:9, if it wasn´t HD, this was in 2014 or there abouts…
We did it as part of our app “Fanoe Nordby Byvandring”, which still can be found in the Android version. Apple version needs some technical adjustment before it can be accessed again. Aaanyways.
(We have a facebook page for it, called Fanø AppTeam, if you want to learn more about it).
I think I will stop here. As I have to get ready to go pick up my girlfriend. And on the way there, I will drop by the corner bar, Hjørnekroen, as they have an “old school dj” there tonight, playing hits from the 70s and 80s! Never experienced such an event here before, so. Curious as I am, I have to go see what it´s all about. 🙂
I´m very grateful for the comment from you, dear reader. Please always feel free to leave me a comment. Writing is a lonely job. It feels nice to know there is someone in the receiving end, who even appreciates my wordplay.
Here´s one for the road, be happy out there in the sunny shine…
