I have ironed long johns for days and finally smelling the powder going up north Sweden. Big snowflakes in the air, mountains everywhere, fresh air, fresh thoughts. There is enough adrenaline in this body to run a medium sized nuclear station. First beat out in the slope: It’s Alright dub plate remix / Bob Marley.
I was 5 living with my mom in a small cottage by a lake in the Swedish forest, a bit like The Jungle Book. Mom´s rule was I could go swimming whenever I wanted if just an adult was around. There was a military camp close by and soldiers often came by for a duck dip. They were considered as adults.
One day two militaries came around; swimsuit on and off to the lake! They were great fun so I told them ‘hey my mom invites you for coffee!’ then I ran home to mom; put on the kettle mom, two militaries will come by for coffee! One of them stayed until sun rice. Two weeks later he moved in, they engaged and a year later they were married. He was married to my mom for 23 years and he was my dad. Dad in the meaning of ‘a real dad’; like the one who loved me and my mom and he taught me all the necessary stuff to know about life. Have Yourself a Merry little Christmas – Bing Crosby.
And it was the touch of imperfect upon would-be perfect that gave the sweetness, because it was that which gave the humanity. Photographer Mike Vorrasi.
I am bankrupt, uncertain if the stupid cancer bomb is still ticking and my company is looking more hollow than an echo. The only thing I can continuously rely on is my banging career; always peaking straight up taking me to nirvana. If my economy reminded just a bit of my banging career I’d never have to worry about how to pay rent or pension plan (which I don’t do anyhow since I don’t know state of my health). Apparently I have developed an excellent eye for alpha males with the property to please and with that in mind I consider myself as such successful, lucky girl.
January 21 Diplo is playing in Stockholm. Based on the unorthodox way he mix music, the way he express himself and how he reached his level by always staying true to heart; doing what he loves – I think we have the same kind of creative minds! He is a mixed bag of impossibilities, just like me and from Philadelphia just like me. He is DJ, producer, filmmaker, and manatee enthusiast and astronaut. I am an interior designer, architect, fashion designer, tailor, snowboarder, dancer… I’d like to get to know him. Seriously I think I’d like to apply for the GF-position if free. How to reach the dude?
Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them so go out creating. Life is short. Live your dream and wear your passion.
Staying in Sweden and hanging out with Gansta Boss & Co is turning into a frequent activity. I am wondering will I end up with a horse head in my bed? Starting new work-gig tomorrow and post some inspiring work spaces. Whatever inspires you it’s all about how much creative power you get out of it!
