named after

Sjukhusdammen, änder

Norrlands Universitetssjukhus, änder

Mrs Bumble Bees Friday Speech

Hi Guys

Its me again

The One and Only

Mrs Bumble Bee:))))

Soon february is over I am glad the refugees are having a better life with the ArtandPlejwoman and me ...but they are still in deep chock. The ArtandPlejwoman inspired me telling you this:

This week soon will be nothing more but a memory
Golden moments some of them
and some of them
grey with dusty blue souls..

Sometimes its easiest to remember 
the sad things hurting
But look very carefully 
in your memory book
You will find some beautiful pure
white dressed up thoughts and feelings

..up on memory lane

Remember the presence of Love - I will

Every moment is shared

Some days ago
1200 people were hurt in the

Panic and confusion was a fact among the
people in the million town Tjeljabinsk
Umeälven, Baggböle
Baggböle, Umeälven

Do you remember what you did when it happened?
It could have happened in your town


It did not

but anyway

it was sending us a signal 
about us being a unit
and united
We are One
we need each other

So why dont we love each other

More than we do

Life Poetry

I made this one during my education to become occupational therapist
graduating in january 1989
It seems a long time ago
and still so present 

Life is a bit like this little artpiece

Line after line
Step by step
One thing comes after the other one
What is past is past
still remaining

Memorable moments

Forgotten lines

Remembering the Past


Now and then


Here I am

I am what I am

I am where I am

What steps will come next

What forms and colours 
will be in those lines coming

Where will I be

Who will I become

I am what I am


That is All

Mrs Bumble Bees Friday Speech

Hi Guys
its me again

Mrs Bumble Bee

Ta da:)

Yes its friday but pleeeeease whats going on, 
on the planet???
I am saaaad, crying, and I dont know what to do!!

 Snifff... :(((

I got an email last night from one of my best bumble bee friends in New York. She told me about human beings shooting more and more often on each other and guns are found all over!!!

But, are you crazy??!!!!  

I told her to come here, and she and some other bumble bees will come to the house of ArtandPlejwoman as bubmle bee-refugees. 

Its sooo sad, they are scared, cannot get out and the food and water is not good inside of the houses. 

We will have a refugee camp here for the bumble bees from New York, and I must say I dont know how this will end

Skiing in daylight - Love and Peace!

In an earlier post I have showed you views from skiing in darkness
This time I went out skiing during daytime
I cannot give you the feeling skiing on a
body experiencing level


I am happy to share the beauty of the open fields and in the forrest
on my skiing tour in Baggböle


 Notice the marks on the snow, 
probably raindeer steps

This view reminds me of Bachs Air

 Entering the church of snow and trees

Its almost unbelievable beautiful and peaceful!

Birch Tree Art from Umeå- Top Class!


is called

Björkarnas stad/
The City of Birch trees

The background of the city nickname goes back to 1888, when the town almost burned down completely. After rebuilding the town broad streets were built and birch trees planted on each side of them. 

The trees would protect a possible new fire from jumping over from one house to another etc.

I love these trees and the remarcable artistic view available looking at them in different ways

I invite you all looking at the bark from some of them, use your fantasy, step into yourself find your inner paintings externalised by viewing the trees using your eyes and imagination

Each of them are original nature art
