Bumble-bee message

Hello, I am Mrs Bumble-bee. I am here to tell you about things you already know of. You are a human being living your life step by step developing your life breath by breath. You are are so much bigger than me and still some of you are so much afraid of me. I am not dangerous at all, I am here on the same principles as you are, and I love to enjoy my life while being here. You live much longer then me, well most of you do, can you imagine a bumble-bee of 85 years?

I want to tell you that it might be important that you now and then do as I now and then do. Look at the flowers, listen to their sounds of silence, touch them carefully with your fingers and smell their fragrance with messages from heaven. I do this sometimes when I feel its time for a break. Actually the best way is to always have a break and now and then do something. This is my philosophy and maybe its not so accepted among you human beings but try it...anyway now and then.....and maybe you may like it. And maybe one day you find out that life is more than just working and doing things...

Silver rocks

Sometimes I create in silver. I love it! The photo is taken on the rocks in Umeå river close to my house. These rocks are also close to a place called Baggböle Herrgård .

I was having a relaxing time there yesterday in the sun listening to the power of all the water from the river, working some on this silver item.

Listen to Björn Lindeblad

Have you listened to Björn Lindeblad? In the link you can listen to him telling some of the story of his life and about his years of being a monk. Wisdom expressed in words vibrating of the important message of being in contact with the Inner self, as one of the main tools for developing trust in the power of intuition and doing what you feel is good for you.

There was also a message telling about Oneness, anyway I felt it that way. I did this creation while listening to him.

A Special Photo for You

I might not post photos every day, only now and then, but today I post a Special photo for You.

This flower was given to me many years ago from a very special lady Yolanda, coming from Brasilia.
Its a magic flower which sometimes looks sooo poor and make me think, ok now its nothing left of this plant... but then after a while, all the flowers come back again.

Trust in the seed and there will be flowers - the power of flower!

Creative Dinner with feelings

How do you do when you cook? Do you follow the book strictly or do you experiment some? I am more of the experimental kind, adding things to my dinner that I feel would fit in and improve and make it better.

My dinner last night was made that way. I boiled fresh potatoes, and if you have tasted that you know its like eating yam yam directly from Heaven! Its sooo good! I had sea food heated up in oil/ butter, added garlic, saffron, salt and pepper, AND then I got a feeling that spinach would be good to add - picked some in the garden and put it together with the sea food.

I show you all in the photos.... and when you see the final resault - also know that I added some delicious oliv oil with taste of orange on top of it all.

Dinner ready to eat!

I feel for painting today

Today I will paint, I started with three new paintings a while ago. When I paint I get a feeling calling for me to paint. This feeling use to be built up during some time and then I feel when its time to start painting. I cannot paint if I dont feel for it. I paint with acryl most of the time, but a while ago I painted with water colours.
Here you see what came out of it.

Yesterday I bought a new nice red sun chair. I have it on my terrace and have put a sheepskin in it to sit on as it started raining and is getting a bit cold. I read the book "The compassionate mind" by Paul Gilbert, sitting in the chair listening to the rain and thunder in the background.

Sometimes I stop reading and relax while inhalating the experience of  my Life. This is one of all the moments that finally will create a unit of my total life. Every single moment in life gives us the possiblitity to reflex over life and the meaning of being here on Earth. You have always a chance to stop doing what your doing for some minutes and more clear become one with All there Is.

The power of ´Being

Voila Squashflower yam yam!

Finally time for making those delicious squashflowers filled with tasty greece cheese "feta-ost" mixed with some milk, red onion in small pieces, and salt and peper added. A fresh sallad and a glas of white wine, some bread and finally a warm evening made the dinner complete. You find the recipe in one of my earlier postings. Maybe you think I always think of food? Or eat? Nope, when I dont eat... I paint :)

Nattis - All night Long

When I was young there used to be a place in Umeå called Nattis. Everyone ..well almost everyone, whent there dancing. It was the years of disco, funk, the beginning of synt-music, and maybe some other styles. There were so much good music made, and myself  I worked in the record shop I mentioned earlier, Burmans Musik.
Yesterday evening there was a nostalgic arrangement made and Nattis, took place one more time. I danced to all the good hits, met people I hadnt seen in yeeears  - All night long!

Flower of Power

I love music and very much some of the old ones like this one. Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair, if your going to San Fransisco. I would say, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair, now and then - celebrate life and love within.

The Midnight Special - John Fogerty

Yesterday evening, John Fogerty was in my town Umeå, giving a nostalgic super music show and I was there! What a memory trigger!!
Its very special listening to music that makes the brain start moving into places inside it that were forgotten, and then say...hey... I remember this one!!! ..or ..I remember what I did when this one was number one... or this.. or this... I think music is good enabling us to remember scenarious we love and never ever want to forget... What music memories do you have?

And now, the time is near

And now, the time is near - I can imagine Frank Sinatras voice singing it the way only he can. I am not Frank Sinatra, but the time is near so very near, and tomorrow even closer...its time for Holiday! (Do you remember Madonna singing Holiday!!!?)

This one will be opened up tomorrow evening, enjoyed with some of the most delicious cheese..."Oviken Cheese", Vieux Chaudron Gruyere, Monte Enebro... you can find, together with thin slices of Gran Serrano 16 months, some fresh salad and a fresh tasty bread from Haga bröd.

Vegetarian dinner of tonight

I love to create in many ways, one of them is cooking. The best season for cooking in my kithchen, is this time of the year when its possible to go out and get fresh vegetables from the garden.

In the photo you can see the dinner of tonight -  chevré baked in owen on slices of bread from the local bakery Haga bröd. On top of that, honey and seeds from sun flower.

All is laying on a bed of mixed sallad and spinach. There is also a cole slaw made of carrot, red onion, white cabbage, mayonnaise, youghurt, salt and pepper.

Did you know that white cabbage is very good for you?

Per 100 gram white cabbage:
Folacin 57 mikrogram
C-vitamin 36 milligram
Kalium 270 milligram
100 gram of white cabbage gives us half of the daily need of c-vitamin

To be or not to be

Att bara vara - räcker långt

Att vara eller inte vara
är den stora frågan
Jag tänker att det är tillräckligt
att bara vara

To be or not to be
is the big question
I think only being
is enough

(maybe not super translated but I tried)
