Dear Love. You are an amazing woman. A nurturing mother. A delicious lover. A human who sees. And feels. You have alchemist eyes. Elfin heart. Laughter, you have a lightness, strong and ethereal, you are a paradox and for that I love you and honor you. But most of all you are who you are, who you’re becoming, and who you always were. And I am grateful to be walking next to you. Right here. Happy birthday, Birgitta Eva!
The most spectacular thing at the top of the world was, quite naturally, a bug. Hello, she said, with the graceful ease of someone who belongs and always have. Hello, I said, perhaps a little more reserved, but still with a growing understanding of how much she and I actually have in common. And then it was over. Or maybe it wasn’t. Maybe it has only just begun.
This picture could easily had been about a boy and his dreams for big city lights and the great promised fortunes of tomorrow. But the fact is, he was looking at three sparrows by the shore. His greatest wish to climb down to them and say hello.
I’m looking for joy these days. Turning stones over, trying to be present when my mind tells me old stories of anger and stress. Underneath are always opportunities to take care of myself, to really listen to my needs, to hold myself accountable when my kids or my woman or my parents or my friends or the assholes or the climate or lack of time or abundance of pressure gets the blame. Joy is right there, right here, always present when I am. When I am present with all the stuff that comes and goes through my emotional body, all the stuff that often hurts and always claims to be true, when I am present with all of that, for the everlasting moments I at any time am capable of, joy is right there too. Hello, painful stuff. Hello, joy.
Today I’m grateful for the lightness which is also always here. . (Sound on!)
– I beg you, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer. – Rainer Maria Rilke

I try to find some poetic words, but all I can think is oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooohh I LOVE THIS KID! Happy birthday, Lean! 8 years! Life with you is such a laughter-pill-joy-bonanza-quietly-listening-to-butterflies-and-the-universe-expanding-kind-of-gift.

Ved neste valg stemmer jeg på det mennesket som står der, uforberedt og nakent, og sier: Jeg vet ikke.
