96d383ac5a7d3ba016c9ec19a4983a71The reason why most people are single today is, they understand that they just can’t invite anyone to be a part of their life. Most single people understand the importance of protecting their good energy. Most single people understand the last thing that they need, is someone coming into their life and being a distraction instead of being a blessing. Most single people don’t fear being in a relationship, they just fear being with someone who doesn’t value a relationship like they do. Life is hard. And the last thing a person with a good heart needs, is for someone else to come into their life and make it even more harder – Michelle Obama

Mon: coming from someone like the present USA first lady says much about how in-tune she is with life.

My sleeping bag and one of the bag-packs are constant reminder to feel thankful that we all made it out safely – except Gator, the 12+yrs old family pet whose time was up and as it was she was having problems hearing, etc. May she RIP in dog-heaven.

img_1580In a crowd of thousands, I braved the crowds in the outdoor grey and drizzly sky@Slottsparken to watch this movie with the the Royal Family. Wanted to have this experience and actually quite enjoyed the ambience – people were courteous and considerate. The lady sitting next to me saw that I was alone and even offered me coffee. Found a tree perfect as a back and head-rest, but was there 2hrs before the show started. This furry well-disciplined pet was sitting by my feet and kept them warm! By the time the show started, there was not an empty space to be found.



Thu: another grey day, perfect for staying indoors to mend and darn O clothes, and to update this post.
