I'm a Norwegian woman living on a small island in Denmark with my music man and three young kids. I love writing, poems and songs, and to dance and drum, to read, meditate, to learn new skills, get to know new people. I'm currently studying vocal sound therapy.

So what do I do these days?

So…. I realize it´s been over a year since I was here. Explanation must be that I´m busy, prioritizing my time differently. With 3 kids, 5 NGOs, a clinic to build, a conference to organize, Corona since March 11. — And a lot of information to take in, process, express. Some rehearsing with a band that formed with two fellow green party like hearted women last Summer… A couple more, new, close girlfriends have blessed my life…. and since Corona I have started writing poems and songs. Been a long while where I didn´t. So that´s a most welcome reunion with a favourite passion.

I´m still working on creating a teaching space online. I have found the mentor for me. After years of researching and learning from different people. All part of a learning curve. And very grateful now, that I have found Emily Johnson, with her Wish Tree and Time to Shine community. I´m enrolling in her course Get Trued Up mid September. I´m also discovering some other very cool stuff to do with neuroscience, methods for changing subconscious blueprints. I´m practicing my hypnosis skills from time to time, and also I keep receiving vocal sound therapy clients in my home. In September I will teach my first workshop in vocal sound therapy tecniques, to a group of maximum 6 people due to Corona restrictions. (I was supposed to start in April, but postponed due to the virus).

Last September, almost a year ago now, I started working as a “home helper”. Going by bike around the village, visiting elders and others who need a hand with this and that. It gives me a lot of joy to meet all these sweet people. The stories from their lives. The humour we share as we solve mundane tasks they can´t manage by themselves. I work once or twice a week, some weeks more. Step in when someone is ill. Ask for a shift when it´s been a while and I miss the lovely people in their homes and also my always helpful colleagues. It´s a really nice job to have for me.

I also still receive contract work for an online ticket office that needs translation into Norwegian to make bids into the market there. Well paid, and I´ve always loved playing with spelling and grammar. So that´s fun, though it tends to come with a crazy short deadline.

I could tell you about many more issues going on. Yet I´m a bit tired. And in an hour´s time I will go with my two youngest (8 and 10) to judo practice. Love sitting there, watching them in the dojo. Boys and girls different ages training together, leaders all men, allowing the oldest kids to help teach the youngest… It gives me a nice feeling to sit and watch it play out. I also used to train iaido, Japanese swordmanship, in a dojo in my 20s. So it feels relaxing for me to sit there.

Anyways. I shall stop here. Test out this new version of WordPress. Try to return in not so long. I feel I need to re organize my homepage here, and let this blog become just a minor element. But this will be done after my course with Emily. I know who is going to help me with the homepage rearrangement, I think…

Thanks for reading this. It´s mostly like a simple diary entry. A note to self. But. That´s the way it has to be right now. Hope you are healthy and happy. And that if you are not, that you have someone to go to for help to change and grow. Should you want my assistance as in conversation, hypnosis or vocal sound therapy, then contact me on lenekaltwasser@gmail.com and we can talk about it. One Love – Big Hug – from Lene. – Be a Blessing of Bliss – ! 🙂

My daughter Viola, 9 years old today.

It’s been a while since I wrote. Been so busy. With lots of different cultural ngo projects. International Women´s Day Celebration. And planning for big events happening next year. Helping build the local green party The Alternative. Helping start up the “Night Ravens”, adults volunteering to go for walks where the youth hangs out in public at weekends. To be available to them if they need assistance. Help them with anything, or just lend an ear. It was my son´s birthday mid March. And then my daughter´s today. Parties to be arranged with their school classes, and neighbours & our familyfriends. My mother came to visit from Norway one weekend, brought my young nephew, Preben. Soon 10. Lovely. Then I had some talks to attend, seminars, concerts, meetings, lots of meetings… Yeah. Busy.

Seems after this latest wp update, I receive no comments anymore? I wish I knew the cause and could fix it. I miss talking with the readers. Typing along without any response gets kind of lonely and in a way feels pointless.

I´m still looking into creating an online teaching space. It is a very demanding process. I have days when I´m excited about the idea, and other days where I just feel sad and overwhelmed about it. I´ve read, though, that this is the norm. So. I continue the process step by step. Maybe I will take a job whilst I prepare. Looks like it takes more time than anticipated. I think I could do with a mentor to lead me through the proces.

Well. I feel tired. Bit uninspired. Drained. So I think I´ll just stop here. Just wanted to let u know I´m alive. Hope to be back soon. Send me a comment! And be happy & healthy.

Lots of Love.

I´m hanging out on my bed as I have for three days now. As I fell and hurt my left knee pretty badly. So I have borrowed some crutches & just keep still. Rather pleasant, I´m all for hibernation slow mode in wintertime.

My Facebook status right now:

Still in bed with my Wounded Knee… (Respect to the tribes murdered). Been surfing world wide these last couple of days. The waves within. The web between us. Connecting.

Found some interesting new Facebook groups. Collected a couple of pictures along the way, check this one out:

Very kool image, in my book… All these groups of people, like 100 000s of members… all talking about empathy, starseeds, intergalactic family…

Ascension… Revolutionary changing humanity…

Hmmm… interesting new ways of sharing information pieces in this WordPress update.

Oh well. I shall go to …. haha. I´m already in bed. Or on my flying carpet, as I call it. Ever since Monday afternoon. Now Thursday morning, 01 AM.

Think I´ll sleep now. Swirl off into theta then delta. Waving Goooood bye. 🙂

Rather shocking. I saw and shared this as well. Interview with the native American man after the incident:

I don´t really have much to add. These two video pieces speak volumes. I just came to the blog to say I share his fear for the upcoming generations. When respect, decency is such a lack, and when violence and racism has this deep a hold on the youth.

“Do as you want to be done by”.

Hi there… Wednesday evening. Soon 9 pm. Gone to bed. But not so sleepy, as I dozed off in front of a webinar two hours ago… 🙂

WordPress has a new update, it looks all confusing on the screen here. It wants me to choose blocks… I was used to the old system… Big sigh…

Oh… “write caption”… Well. I just love Mr. Gere, he is a warmhearted thinker. That´s all. 🙂

Okay. Survived that. Weird this.

Hmmm. Well, ain´t got much to tell, really. Love the top picture, I´ve used for the heading. Made me think of my last post where I talk about the international women´s day party I´m helping organize, where I also wrote a little bit about the hippy movement´s peace activism. http://kaltwasser.dk/fanos-8-of-march-2019/ 

I think I will just leave you with today´s astro forecast by Timothy. I´ve shared these with you before. I find him immensely inspiring, and soothing in these times of such rapid change all around us. Listening to him explain his theory of how events and energies fit together, helps me remain calm and collected. Check him out if you haven´t already 🙂 :

Hmmm… I can see that one can´t click on the heading picture and see it properly? Used to be able to in the old version. I prefer the oooold waaayyy…. 🙂 Ah well. The only constant in life is change. So said Heraclit, the Greek wiseman. I´ll get used to it, and this too shall pass. Very assuring. 🙂 I will put the heading poster here as well, so you can read the words:

Caption in bold. Me digs. “Be the change you want to see in the world”. Gandhi said. He must be called a hippy. I think so must Buddha, and Jesus. Basically it´s about love,  isn´t it. To believe in unity, instead of separateness and competition. 
Namaste.

Fanø’s 8. of March 2019

Facebook
rssyoutube

Good “morning”, soon 10 AM here, been awake an hour. Fantastic to not be forced out of bed by alarm 0630, as on school days. It´s just not for me. I miss the years where I would go to bed 02-03 and wake up 10-11. Go to work 4pm-10 pm. In an old people´s home, and a statistics bureau… After work I´d go out with my colleagues, dancing or just hanging out in eachother´s homes. Good times. 🙂

I enjoy being the mother of 3 too, though, of course! I don´t mean to compare and I don´t long to go back to the bygones. There is a time for everything. Many shades of Love. (I´m not much into grey, sudden connotation popping up there).

Anyway. I just wanted to say a couple of words about today, and lost track in my greeting. Never mind. To be human is to be imperfect.

It is Saturday the 12. of January. I have a meeting at noon, with 3 people with whom I´m organizing a cultural event. On the 8.of March. International Women´s Day. Where we take a look at how equality between the genders is doing. Iceland just last year decided by law that women will be paid equally to men. LAST YEAR. And actually, they are the first country in the world to do this. !!!

Many people seem to think this is not a big deal. But. WHY exactly should one gender be paid more for their work than the other gender? Why is this reasonable? Please enlighten me because I can NOT understand it.

People say feminism is anti men, aggressive and out of fashion. I disagree. Feminism is about equality. For everyone. We are alle equal. Men and women, black and white, moslems and christians and atheists, gays and straights, tall and short, fat and thin, adult and child. No human being is inferior to other human beings.

Feminism is the opposite of fascism, one could say. As fascism believes in one group of people´s superiority over other groups.

(And yes, children have different rights than adults. But they are equal in value as a human being-entity. Is what I mean).

On the 8. of March 2019, we have booked Strien, which is the community building in our village. A very sweet, old and big space for holding parties. There is a bar, a kitchen, a stage, dancing hall (or dining), and one more big room.

 

We have booked a lovely local lady to cook tasty soups, that we will sell very cheap to the guests. (We don´t do this for profit making, but rather for strengthening bonds in our community, honouring the local history of strong women, as this was an island of sailors and ship building, and hence a lot of the time only the women and children were home whilst the fathers sailed away for years on end).

We will have a couple of good speeches from stage. The first local female mayor will speak, and an other woman whom I´ve forgotten who is. (Remember I don´t do this planning alone, we are 4). We also hope for an organization for all genders (more than 2) to come and tell us what they work towards. Local women will go on stage and dance, sing, read out their poems… stuff like that.

Last year I actually went on stage for the first ever 8.of March event organized here. I sang a song and I read out a rap that I had written especially for the day. 8.March 18.

It was organized by Ragnhild Kallehauge, who is also the initiator this year. And myself and our friend Julie Frey and Ragnhild. all went on stage twice each, in The Cornerbar, down the street. It was a lovely happening, actually. This year we scale it up, as it´s on a Friday this year… 🙂

 

 

 

One central element this year, is that there will be dancing. YEEEYYYYYY!! 🙂

We are creating a “Playlist for Every Taste”! And the participating guests can, upfront, send in their wishes for songs to be added to the playlist! This opportunity really ignites me. I have for years now been planning to make a reaggae party playlist, and add visuals. As I have done some vj-ing in Norway in my twenties (90s). I haven´t made this playlist – and – visuals yet. But in this event now, I get a round of practice, creating a list together with others. Looking forward to this process.

The event starts at 4 pm, with open soup kitchen and bar. And entertainment for children the first hour and a half. We want to include EVERYONE.

There are many more exciting ideas in the planning, but I don´t want to reveal more yet.

The theme colour will be pink. Not pastel, but very bright, dark pink.

🙂

Here is a link to the event´s homepage:

We also have a Facebook group, called

Fanø´s 8.marts – Ja til Kvindekraft

https://www.facebook.com/groups/2233645963574458/

Ja til Kvindekraft means “Yes to Woman Power.” or maybe ” Yes to Female Power”.

Power is a very wide concept to work with. All kinds of strange connotations connected to this word. Force, brutality, obuse, making people do what they wouldn´t do if not manipulated…

Power means the ability to get something done. To have one´s will heard, listened to, respected. To be able to have one´s will. Influence. The energy to get ideas materialized into practical reality.

We could say “Yes to the Female Way of doing things”. Yes to the (traditionally considered) females values. Of caring and compassion, empathy. Consideration for the individual human´s well being more than consideration for private profits, paid for by the collective.

I know. We are all both female and male. In a unique, individual % wise balance. Some men are also way more empathic than some women. Myself, I consider myself androgynous, a balanced being both feminine and masculine. Identifying … 75%…? with the label “woman”, yet an odd one of the kind. Or not. Because who gets to decide what is odd and not odd?! Aren´t we all odd, really?

I fall in love with men. But I could probably also fall in love with a woman. It´s about personal connection, isn´t it. I view sexuality as a ray, somehow. A ray of energy that is not static. That can shift, according to the unique chemical connection between people. As opposed to box thinking, as if sexuality is a set of boxes we choose to belong to. The hetero box, the gay box. The bi box. Nice and simple. 🙂

I guess this is why some churches think they can heal sexual orientation. They think individuals choose which box to belong to. And hence they can be forced to change box.

I don´t think this is possible. I have a few gay friends. Who tell me they knew from childhood they were attracted to same sex puils in the  school class. And that this was very scary, as they knew they had to hide it from EVERYBODY. As it was not acceptable, and they would be bullied / hated for it.

So much for civilization.

Well.

I say yes to the feminine way of doing things. Yes to more women in leader positions. Let us consider the needs of mother earth and the future generations. Let us choose peace and love over war profits / weapon sales. Let´s be more gentle, listening, empathic, co operating people, in this inevitable globalization process that is happening to us. The Human Race. Unite!!!

I know, I just tipped into hippie political slogans there.

I am a feminist, and certainly do feel free to call me a hippy anytime you please. They were tried ridiculed. By the ones in power; because they were dangerous. They stopped the war in Vietnam.

I would like there to be made new labels.

I´m an EQUALIST.  !

If you have other suggestions for new words that would better cover my message than “feminist” and “hippy”, please let me know in the comments field below. I love to talk and discuss, matters of the heart. The matters that weigh me down, or lift me up. The matters that truely matter. That reside within my heart. Heart Matters.

🙂

I´ve gotta dash. Shower, breakfast and on to the meeting. Enjoy your Saturday! And remember; EVERYONE is very welcome to come celebrate international women´s day with us on Fanø, 08.03. 2019!

Happy new year, people!

All good? I hope so. Here good. Healthy and happy. Bit tired, but. Had a nice long holiday stretch, with plenty of rest (and tons of sugar). So. No complaints! 🙂

(Sounds like a good new year resolution, that last sentence).

I love January. It´s so quiet and… post explosion like. Peaceful, calm. We deserve rest now after christmas and new year´s celebrations are accomplished. Taken a lot of preparations. Money and work hours. Where I live, many shop owners go on holiday in January, as they work all Summer servicing our island´s many visiting tourists. This means that those of us who stay home in January, get an even more quiet January, where most shops and restaurants are actually closed until February some time.

I enjoy this. Contrast between all the visitors in the tourist season (from easter until October, and then there´s guests in the xmas holiday as well, I´ve seen this trend increasing the last few years…).

I love it when all the people come to spend holidays here. And I also love it when the streets yet again become empty and there´s lots of room in the grocery store, and everyone says hello to each other coz we know we are all just locals present right now, for the time being… 🙂

I did a major thing on the 3. of January. To me. It´s not a major thing to everybody. But to me it took weeks of thinking about whether to to it, and then a few tries before I managed to. Share, in public, the first ever video of myself talking into the camera.

I chose to make a promo video for my facebook page: Kaltwasser Vocal Sound Therapy. In the form of a give-away, so people who comment can win a sound session with me, or a copy of my book.

Look, here it is:

So what´s the big deal about posting such a video in public? Well, It´s about mindset. Choosing to stand by myself as an imperfect being, doing imperfect actions. I could shoot this video better, with a better background, better lighting, make it shorter. I could have made a presentation that started with a big smile, and where I seemed professional, well prepared, serious and…. yeah. The critical mind really takes off when I watch myself on video.

But I have decided that the winning criteria when publishing myself on video, is whether I am authentic. No pretense. Real deal. I could have wished that I had ben more relaxed in this one, and maybe presented vocal sound therapy a tad more… in depth… BUT.

I MADE IT. I DID IT. I managed to make the debut following my idea of a xmas / new year´s give-away. And hence I applaud myself. 🙂

I am planning to use video in creating information products for a future online space I plan to create. I also practice using video with this fantastic lady here, from Ireland:

She has a space on the web called Light It Up videomarketing, name is Niamh Arthur. Her free 22 day video challenge “Ignite”, really taught me a lot, and after that, I joined her course. I have worked with video actively ever since 1999… but not with myself in front of the camera. So it is nice to get her help on becoming confident enough to dare to share. I need to understand, to be conscious about the parametres of a field, before I want to claim competency. I now feel I am competent enough to know roughly what I am doing. This is good enough for me.

I will keep practicing from here and hence I will get better at both the technical stuff, the mindset stuff and my personal appearance as a trust worthy, proud and competent therapist / teacher. It’s not that I don´t feel good at what I do. I DO. It´s just a bit difficult to get up on the world wide stage and present myself as a brand, so to speak. Selling, marketing. Is a skill I don´t quite master yet. But until I do, I shall keep making lots of imperfect actions. Is my major decision.

Yeah, so. I AM moving forward. Making imperfect action, as my VBS teacher Ryan encourages us to do.

Tonight I actually have a zoom meeting with my VBS mastermind group. We are 5 fellow students, one from the Phillipines, one from Turkey, one from Colorado (/Israel), one from Montreal Canada, and myself from Denmark (/Norway). All of us wanting to move into online teaching.

Basically. It is a process that demands a lot. Of conquering fear. Our human reptile brains don´t want us to step out of the group, the pack, In the stone age this was very dangerous; to risk the public´s dislike. You would be excluded from the group and you would die. From lack of protection when ill,lack of food, and easily falling prey to wild animals. So this instinct has to be understood and then we have to act against the warnings the nervous system comes up with.

Then there´s also the more general fear of what others will think of me when I stand up in public and say “Hey, listen to this, I have something really valuable to tell you!” … One thing is the strangers watching online, but my family, and the local community when I share a video of myself on my facebook wall, visible to my neighbours, colleagues, parents of my children´s friends… This action goes completely against the law of Jante. Which says (amongst other paragraphs): “Do not believe you are better than US”   …. Like, “who do you think you are?!”

Being frowned upon, being met with sarcasm, scorn… We all know this feeling from our childhood, of being judged as inferior or ridiculous. It´s not something one strives to receive again, is it.

Yeah. It isn´t easy. But with the excellent support structures I have found, and invested my time and (borrowed) money in… I am indeed moving forward. So. That´s all I want to say.

Please leave a comment if you have a question or remark on my first “selfie video” or on this issue. You can also join the draw of winning a sound session or a book. I will find the 2 winners on the last day of January, I have decided. Just leave a comment below my youtube video, or even better, on my facebook page “Kaltwasser Vocal Sound Therapy”. I would really appreciate that. Also, I would love more subscribers on my Youtube Channel, and more thumbs up on my facebook page. As I am building up this online space thing.

Peace & Love, y’all.

Lots of Love!

Christmas Greeting

Merry christmas.

I´m at my mother´s, in her beautiful waterfront apartment on the west coast of Norway. Everyone else (2 adults and 3 children tonight, as some kids stay at my sister´s) is in bed. Just me and the christmas tree here, the sound of my typing mixing with the humming of the dishwasher.

Here´s a picture of the sunrise from my mom´s place, just outside the terrace door. I took it on the morning of 22. 12.:

In Norway the main celebration is on christmas eve, the 24. Traditional lamb ribs. Church some times, before dinner. Then after the meal, we open all the presents. We open them one by one, so we all can celebrate each present with eachother. Enjoy seeing the others receive, the look of happy surprise and gratitude on our loved ones´ faces. It takes all evening to open the presents this way. But to me this is THE  way to do it. 🙂

Today we continued the family gathering, more delicious food, board games. Kids went outside and played soccer. We watched a children´s movie. Some computer games, and playing with the toys unwrapped last night. Same procedure as every year. So safe and soothing. Predictable, pleasant. Friendliness. Catching up with our family members, as we live abroad it is not so often we get to see each other. Wonderful to see the strong ties between my sister´s kids and mine. Wonderful to speak my own dialect as well, and not have to think before I speak. Mother tongue. Swift and easy. So much depth in the internalized expressions. Which is lost in my Danish communication, as it is not so deeply integrated in me.

I just want to share this text with you, from Marianne Williamson´s Facebook wall. (I guess you´ve heard she runs for presidency? Very good news in my book).

Well. She posted Da Vinci´s painting of Jesus.:

With the following words:

“Mary was awakened from her slumber, as we all are. She was told to go to the roof, as we all are beckoned to higher consciousness. And there she was spoken to by an angel.

She was told the same thing that all of us are told: that God wants to enter us, to impregnate us, and to be born into the world through us. And we are asked to say yes, though we are free to say no. When we do say yes, in any moment or any hour when we allow love to have its way with us, to extend through us, to be born into the world in something that we think or say or do, we participate in a field of consciousness in which all of us are one. That field of our essential oneness is the field of our essential Self, the self we share, the Self that is God’s “one begotten Son.” This Self has many names and one of them is Jesus.

According to A Course in Miracles, he lived as a man but thought only the thoughts of heaven. Having achieved a fully self-actualized state – a state that is potential in all of us – he has been authorized by God, should we request it, to guide us as an elder brother on the path that he himself has walked. He is not looking for martyrs but for teachers, according to the Course. For those who love him, for those who know him, this is a special day of deep remembrance. His is a love that lies beyond this world and shatters its illusions. Miracles occur naturally in the presence of this love. All is forgiven. Darkness dissolves. And tears are wiped away. #salvatoremundi 

 

I just thought these words are really potent. So I felt to share them here, as a present to you blog readers. Words for meditation. Contemplation. in these days of slow time hibernation.

I wish for peaceful, joyful days for every one, this christmas season.

I leave you with clips from my daughter Lava´s concert with her choir, 14. of December. A very, very good choir. They actually won gold medals in the World Choir Games in South Africa this summer.

Hiya. U ok? Me I´m fine. In spite of Danish government behaving like fascists, introducing violent laws against our refugees… I´m fine. I express on Facebook, on my own wall and in the groups of my party, Alternativet. Feels good to see how many Danes agree with me about the importance of the human rights and UN rules and regulations… As an anthropologist I am deeply fascinated by the communication technology the web and our smartphones have given us. We are all potential producers of political content now. Sharing and caring, finding likeminded people with common interests, all across the globe! Horizon is widening. So much is becoming possible!!

December is busy with all the xmas preparations. Friday I went to the local pub down the street, and joined the monthly jam session.

I sang, and did percussion on my legs, stomping the floor, and also “drumming” on the piano keys… Lovely people.

Then Saturday, I first had coffee with the Red Cross Syrian Women´s Cafe. Also very lovely people. And directly afterwards, I met up with my fellow party members in Nick´s home, and we had a truely great afternoon and evening, with good food, traditional xmas drinks, inspiring conversations, and we ended up singing and dancing… My favourite activities. Had a wonderful time indeed.  🙂

Today I´m a bit tired. I´m not as strong with alcohol as I used to be. Which is okay. I´m not hungover today, though, just tired. So I have had a couple of naps throughout the day, and I´ve watched a webinar and a handful videos on videomarketing in a course I´m attending.

Last Wednesday I had my first MasterMind meeting with fellow studens in Visionary Business School. It was SO much fun!! We are all moving into the field of online teaching, all of us facing inner boundaries, pushing ourselves out of our comfort zones… I took at picture whilst waiting for the group video call to start. And ended up using it as my new banner photo on Facebook. (I don´t change the banner often, so it is a big deal to me).

I´m using it as a step in my process. Of standing up in public. Using video online. I am going to try to do my first public video appearance in the upcoming week. Maybe shoot it tomorrow. Will try to like… post it onto my youtube channel and then to my Kaltwasser Vocal Sound Therapy fb page. To promote my vocal sound therapy. I´m thinking to give a session away for free, as a xmas present. And maybe also a copy of my book, for the followers who don´t live locally. My teacher Githa says that the vocal method actually works through Facetime/Skype too, though… I will have to check that out.

Anyways. My husband is out in the grocery store now, so we will be cooking dinner soon. Let me leave you with this rather amazing video I bumped into a couple of days ago. I really felt an effect from this one. Maybe it´s not your cup of tea. Just leave it if u don´t love it.

Catch u later, gator!

Ciao for now.

Hiya

I´m in my ListeningHut behind the appletree in my garden. Let me share an old videoshot of it that I have on youtube:

It looks a bit different now. But not that much. There are limits to how I can rearrange a tinyhouse of 2 metres times 2 metres. 🙂 A present from my husband when I turned 40. Best gift ever. The piece and quiet, for a mother of three. Married to a musician. Yeah. Nice.

Just finished a meeting on Zoom. With 3 people from my Visionary Business School group, and also Light It Up group. We are looking into being online teachers, basically. Entrepreneurs. Changemakers. The three others are from USA, Canada and the Philipines. There´s a lady more in the group, I think she´s from Turkey. And then there´s me from Denmark. Fantastic spread.

Just feel so happy and inspired. Such a … frightening road to walk alone. When we can listen to eachother and cheer eachother on, it makes such a huge difference! It was my very first meeting with them today. We have a facebook group together as well. I think this group communication on progress and challenges  will be an immense help for me in my process.

I think I will leave it at that. I´m sleepy, and should go to bed. Up early with the kids, and a rather interesting and important meeting tomorrow, with some fellow citizens with shared cultural interests as me. Kind of cryptic, I know. Tell u more clearly later. May be local people reading this blogpost, and it´s early days still. If things fall through, I prefer it to do so quietly. And if the seeds are to blossom, I want to give them water and shade, no rush, no drama. 🙂

Let me leave you with a song. This one is made by a young man from Bergen, Norway, where I went to university and lived for 15 years. Love it:

I know I´m not alone.

I think I´m slowly becoming ready to go public on video. I´m practicing online, in a closed circle of likeminded video enthusiasts. Takes a different level of courage, though, to go public visible to people in one´s neighbourhood. I´m not promising I will do it. But I feel it is heading in that direction. As you know, if you´ve been reading my posts the last six months, I´m in a learning process at Visionary Business School. (Plus 3 more courses online, actually. Two on how to create online courses, and one on how to master video as a teaching tool).

Right. Short and sweet. Sleep tight where you are. Remember you are made from the same matter as is a star. Isn´t that just. Amazing. Yes indeed you are. 🙂
