Midwives of a belated spring

Spring has come late in Denmark, this year. In fact, winter didn’t arrive fully until March and then lasted for more than a month. Brrr…but now Spring is finally here and in full bloom – Hallelujah! Time for picnics with tea and cake on the meadow; for trips to the forest and beach again. Time for picking delicately blossoming apple tree…

An apple a day

Keeps the doctor away…but only if it is good, ripe and preferably organic;) I found a 40+-year-old photo of myself from when I’m a little toddler at like 18 months old or so; just about to take a bite of an apple. Had to draw it and color it even if the photo was in black and white; there’s no telling if the…

The pickle of perception

This January, I, once again, ponder paradoxes and peculiarities of life. Isn’t it strange how there always seem at least one piece missing in the jigsaw-puzzle of components to your wellbeing and happiness? You work hard to discover, create or retrieve (occasionally, gracefully receive) an important piece and it falls into its perfect place, but then another one mysteriously goes…

Christmas already?

Oh, my – how time flies.. 2017 has flown by in the blink of an eye, and I haven’t been posting on this blog as often as intended. Instead, I’ve been writing, editing and drawing illustrations for my book = other means of expression. I just submitted my book to Hay House’s (publishing house) contest for participants of their online writer’s…

Weaving things together

I’m weaving the storyline of my novel together these days. It is really starting to take shape and has some of my illustrations throughout:15 to 20, I think; some old and some new. It’s written in English since it somehow feels easier for me to express certain things in English. The title is: “What’s the Matter with Maria?” and this summer, I’ve…

Drive or lack thereof

What is the deepest driving force in your life? Have you ever asked yourself this existential question? Done some soul searching to find the perhaps not so obvious reasons behind what drives you. The thing working at the core level within you, motivating or maybe pushing you to get out of bed each morning, sometimes excited to start the new…

Sweet nostalgia

I went for a walk down memory lane the other day; went to Aalborg and visited some places from my past. It was especially fun to see my old Art School again: a small but incredibly charming place. Can’t believe it’s almost 20 years ago I attended classes there! Oh my, how time flies…Aalborg is a great city; cultural and very cozy,…

Spring cleaning

I like dream analyzing, have for years, and I find a well of wisdom in it once you crack the code to the particular language of your subconscious. A few months ago I dreamt that I cut out all labels at the neck of my sweaters. Later in the dream, I was unable to start my old (scrapped) car, parked down…

The long journey home

 I ponder a lot about the concept “home” these days. To own a home or more precisely; to feel at home. There’s this tv documentary series running on danish television at the moment. We follow a homeless man Henning and his cute dog companion Felix, biking all around Denmark in summer. He meets all kinds of people on his journey. Along the…

Writing a tale of childhood

Still writing these days; it feels very therapeutic to scribble small stories down like this. Inspiration is a must. Ideas and insights always come to me whenever they happen to do, in their own time. It can’t be forced with this kind of creative or artistic oriented work: work from your Heart & Soul. Well, I knew that already… I’ve been writing since I…
