wooden cottage

I try to be in the moment.
I know it´s important.
We have summer in the city.
We spend Time in our back yard and
in our allotment-garden cottage.
It´s luxury that little wooden cottage, I drew it and we built it.
One day I´ll show You the sketches.
But I ogle at my studio.
My husband is there working at his science research right now.
Even though I know that my work is working on its own and
it´s good with a distance. I long for
unrestrained work of importance.

me and the kids are just
being.

Being,
being one of the most important words, and
I am the moment.

nothing
Please join, leave a comment here and I´ll link to Your view of nothing on friday.

he was in my belly.

weekword: non/attachment

I guess this weekword is attached to the last weekword, ´cause it´s in a dream.
.
If I dream about a man telling me something, are the words his or mine?
When I wake up, can I then say that I came up with that clever sentence that he gave me?
It is my dream, I was dreaming about him.
His words as he spoke them, but
in my dream.
So can I use that sentence as mine or
is it his?

I guess the dream is the question.
I can´t remeber the sentence.
It´s a non attachment.
.
Go to beautiful Sarapirat, she is attached to her dream!
See who else has attachment or non attachment this week at her place.
.
Photos by Ansgar four years old.

And to all of You a Happy Midsummer!
Here is our celebration last year.

kvällstid / night time

Kvällarna är så ljusa nu.
Vi letar efter månen.
Jag har eftertanke eller "företanke", jag vet inte vilket.

The evenings are so bright now.
We search the moon.
I have reflection or "preflection", I don´t know wich.

weekword: dröm / dream

Hur många legobitar ryms det i en dröm?
Vi var på Legoland i ett par dagar.
Bästa platsen någonsin, enligt barnen.
Fotografierna har min fyraåring tagit.
Legoland ur hans synvinkel, hans dröm.

How many pieces of Lego can a dream hold?
We spent two days at Legoland.
Best place ever, according to the kids.
The pictures are taken by my four year old.
Legoland from his visual angle, his dream.

Today Elisabeth leads the way to interpretations of dreams. Please join!

By the way, Your best dream can come true!

årstiderna / the seasons

jag är fortfarande yrvaken
årstiderna är som ett sammelsurium i kroppen.
Den långa vintern
den sköra, men starka våren som
till slut bryter igenom och
nu sommar
syrenerna har redan blommat över.
Inom mig
skottar jag snö
vidrör knoppar
sparkar grus på gatan
fryser
lyssnar i fågelägg som snart kläcks
har näsan i pioner
sparar till vinterpäls
går barfota och
möter den friska höstluften.
årstiderna är som ett sammelsurium i kroppen
jag är fortfarande yrvaken.

I´m still drowsy
in my body the seasons jumble.
The long winter
the fragile, but strong spring that
eventually brakes through and
now summer
the lilac has already bloomed.
Within
I´m snow clearing
touching buds
kicking gravel on the street
freezing
listening to birds eggs that are just about to hatch
have my nose in peonies
growing a fur before winter
walking bare-foot and
meeting the fresh autumn wind.
in my body the seasons jumble
I´m still drowsy.

vill / want

Vill sommarstäda ateljén, lägenheten, mina tankar.
Men solen skiner och barnen är hemma... vi går ut och äter glass istället.

I want to summer clean the studio, the appartment, my thoughts.
But sun is shining and the kids are home... so let´s go out for some ice cream instead.

weekword: transparent

This is such a huge word, good choice Gina.
If I let my mind free on this one, it flies of in different directions.
I think of the world and all the beauty that surrounds us and all the beauty that we hold. And I wish that we all could see our existence more in a transparent way. See all the layers, see all the splendid details of everything.
If we did, we would also see our fears and therefore not be afraid.
The world could be a safer place,
this leads me to the other meaning of the word; open, sincere, honest, frank. Such an important word, transparent.

Sweet Gina at Just a humble bee leads the way, she holds nature in a gentle hand, go there!

On monday Textilspanieln will give us the next weekword. Please join! Thanks Elisabeth.

färg / colorant

På bottenvåningen i min ateljé.
I händelsernas centrum.
Min skyddsrock måste placeras synligt och nästan i vägen för mig så att jag inte glömmer den och plötsligt dyker in i färgen och börjar måla. Har jag väl gått in i målnings- eller tryckprocess är kläderna ingenting jag prioriterar. Detta har jag lärt mig av erfarenhet.
Är det likadant för Dig?
.
In the basement of my studio.
In the center of events.
My protective coat has to be visually placed for me, I must not forget it and dive in to the paint and start my work. Once in the work process of painting or printing my clothes are not my priority. This I have learned by experience.
Have You the same experience?

i cirklar / in circles


Cirkulär
i cirklar.
Cirklar runt i cirklar.
Mina cirkulära fynd, i väntan, i studion.
En hårsnodd, två rostiga metallringar, en gammal cykelfälg.
Perfekta fynd till mitt arbete.
Den sista bilden är en hälsning till Textilspanieln och hennes fötter och hennes mattor.

Och mitt i livet så är mitt hjärta och min bön i Gaza och hos folket i Israel som har sina hjärtan på båda sidor muren.

Circular
in circles.
Circles round in circles.
My circular findings, waiting, in the studio.
One hair band, two rusty metal rings, an old bicycle rim.
Perfect finds for my work.
The last photo is a greeting to Textilspanieln and her feet and her carpets.

And in the middle of life my heart and prayers are in Gaza and with the people of Israel who has their hearts on both sides of the wall.
