Such a fantastic morning here now. Warm breeze crossing the island, eastern wind, hence not from the ocean, so we can expect high summer temperature today, so my husband informs me. There´s a scent of sea in the air. And sounds from so many birds! I´m sitting on a sunbed in my garden, grass has not been cut yet this year, been so cold until very recently. Good for the insects. And for my bare feet, this soft green garden carpet… And the sound of the wind caressing the grass and the leaves on the trees…
So much to be grateful for: It in turn makes me so grateful. Hahaha…
Jason Stephenson. I listen to him quite often. Mostly his sleep hypnosis. Hereby recommended. 🙂
But right now, that gratitude meditation is a bit too introvert and slow for me. Coz I was at a concert yesterday. Which has left me all high and happy. A family concert with Rasmus Seebach, Danish popstar. We gave the tickets to our 8 yearold daughter as a birthday present. Which all five of us then shared. We have listened to his latest album for a month, waiting for the gig date. His album that he´s written for his newborn son. About how him and his mom became a couple. About grand dad, who is a famous popstar too, that passed away a couple of years ago. About when his woman wanted to leave him and how grateful he is that she stayed… This guy dares to talk about feelings, emotions. And I think this is what makes people love him so much. This, and his great melodies, often in a reggae or latino rhythm. Yes, man. He´s cracked the formula. Consider me a fan. (Which to me is a word of compliment. Of respect and appreciation. Not some hierarchical concept where I put other´s worth above my own worth. I don´t do inequality).
Here, have a listen to one of my favourite tunes from that album:
I just LOVE the way he talks about my own younger years in house parties and in queues in front of clubs, and he times it to the 90s by saying “when Ace of Base was fire, fire…” 🙂
His lyrics are loving, philosophical, funny, self ironic, and his way with making rhythm with words is rather ace. Of base.
He sings in Danish. I reckon if he did stuff in English (or does he? I don´t know his work that well, my daughter is the one who´s turned me on to him…) Well, I reckon English speakers too need the messages he puts out there. Not many, especially not men, go into emotions at the depth and understanding that he does.
There was a children’s pit in front of the stage yesterday. Only people below 150cm where allowed in there. They all sang along to all the songs!! Very moving to see. Don´t know how many thousands were gathered yesterday, but the park was teeming. Selling candyfloss and slushice, and very expensive hoodies in pink and pastel blue, that hundreds were wearing, he must have made a fortune. (Beer counters stood empty, I´d rather be the candyfloss salesman yesterday, than the alcohol salesman)! 🙂
Think I´ll leave u here.
Got more to tell u but will make another post for that.
Have a brill Sunny Sunday out there today. Enjoy the birds and the flowers. If none of that is where u are, then go within.
There is always light in your inner silence, your Higher Self.
