This day is a true blessing | Day 183 of my 2023 Journal
“This day is a true blessing. Let’s not be afraid to use the word! Sharing all of the hours all of us together and how it unfolds truly is a blessing”.
Nomad daily life | Day 179 of my 2023 Journal
I sit with the pain. I feel it. I feel the deep love and allow the pain to be. It is all okay. The root is love. And love is the meaning of everything. So, we are good. Secondly, I remind myself no plans are so set they can not be changed, hence our house rule of writing our plans with a pencil.
Do not be afraid - My Aunt Else | Day 177 of my 2023 Journal
Else is 99 years. She approached me at my Grandads funeral some ten years ago, and told me who she was - she is the younger sister of my late granddad younger sister, I had never met her before - she said she would love to be a great-grandmother to my children and happy to get to know my family.
There is a sadness creeping in | Day 175 of my 2023 Journal
There is a sadness creeping in as we do our last rounds in Denmark this summer. The price for the adventure is being paid right now. Only five weeks in our home country in total this year is taking its toll.
Garden Party | Day 174 of my 2023 Journal
When we came back from Sweden, we said goodbye to our oldest and delivered her back to her boyfriend and her home in Copenhagen. Then we drove to my sister's house, equally in Copenhagen. Hugged the nieces and cooked some food. We were tired, and the following day I crashed.
Learning to the highest potential | Day 172 of my 2023 Journal
But worse, much worse, is to impose this ambition on OTHERS, Adults want to set the scene for their (or others’) children to learn to their highest potential. Let's NOT do that. Let’s just be. Let be. Choose to be. And what to be. Remember, the “highest potential” of this life is to live it.
Summer Solstice | Day 171 of my 2023 Journal
One of the reasons we chose to become nomadic was my winter depression, and one clear sign for us was when I started worrying at Summer Solstice. On the shortest night, I would know how the rhythm was turning, how the darkness was coming, and it would ruin everything for me.
Life of Pi | Day 170 of my 2023 Journal
Creating a better story is a way to survive a challenging situation emotionally. The question is: Do we always do that? And is the so-called reality of the challenging situation more True than how we choose to see it? What is the difference between the narrative as a coping mechanism and deep understanding?
What is that unschooling thing? | Day 169 of my 2023 Journal
True unschooling is a lifestyle where the whole idea of school has been removed from the equation, the idea of “you have to learn” and the idea of the curriculum. Both. Both need to go in order for it to be unschooling.
Look for what you need in what you have | Day 168 of my 2023 Journal
We live in a world of consumerism. Always shopping. Always using something. What if we stop? Stop to think. What if we let go?
Mothering | Day 167 of my 2023 Journal
One thing I do not understand about modern parents. It seems they can’t get away from their children fast enough; it seems all they talk about is how annoying, misbehaved, noisy, and messy the kids are. They (the adults) whine about the chores that accompany parenthood and the losses of time, money, silence, and freedom - and I don’t get it.
Silent time | Day 166 of my 2023 Journal
It is some form of rebellion to stop and be silent and do simple slow stuff of no obvious value. To the world, it seems we always have to be productive and efficient, so not doing so and being openly and on purpose silent and slow is my simple pushing back.
The last bottle of champagne | Day 165 of my 2023 Journal
On the last day we spent with my sister's family in Sweden, we shared the last bottle of champagne from my mother, whom we all lost four years ago. It meant a lot. The little smile. The sigh. The time we get to share. Even the losses we share.
The value of home-making | Day 163 of my 2023 Journal
I am very much a homemaker. This is interesting, as at the same time, I am a true nomad. I find it intriguing how I can at the one hand love to move around so frequently and at the same time enjoy the home-making processes of setting a space for social life, and establishing a kitchen with fermentation and sprouting.
