Beauty is forever young as long as the spirit is with… Watch this
Meeting great men and women at work. This time in Zurich. First of all I was picked up at the airport by Duncan, the photographer and his woman, they took me to a nice, very personally styled hotel right by the lake, where I got a huge room. First I had my evening walk by the lake at sunset and then I found a delicious vegetarian restaurant, where I shared the table with another woman…we spoke…shared a moment. Back at the hotel I did my beauty treat preparing for the work next day, a hot bath with relaxing rosemary oil from Weleda, a face peel and then Arnica oil all over the still hot body before slipping into the best bed, finest down blanket and pillows, covered with bed linen in crisp white swiss cotton…just to give you a feel…Next morning started with work at 10.30 so there was time for breakfast and a walk by the lake. This is the way I want it. And this is the way it is. Very cared for, very balanced between work and self care, time to integrate….
First “man of the day” was Eric, the male model. Look at these eyes! Something happens in those short meetings, meetings with no agenda other than just meeting another human being, they often become enchanted with the magic and mystery of the moment, the mystery of seeing “the other”, seeing their heart and soul, seeing their beauty…this was such a meeting.
Then Duncan, the photographer…wow! I wish you could all meet him! Meeting him and working with him was…beyond words, just the sweetest heart felt moments, such a generous soul and so easy behind the camera.
Me and Duncan. Not the best picture of me but the only one I had of us. He had asked me to bring my own clothes so here I`m wearing a silk dress and jacket made by me and a necklace by Temple.
Marcel, the creative director. I fell in love with this man, a pretty wild soul like myself. You know, just tasting the energy of these moments of meetings is more than enough to fill the day with bliss and the wonder of life, of just being Here…you know…let`s remember who we are and where we are…every moment new.
The women! Also beyond words! The moments we got to share together, maybe 1 1/2 hour, with Nathalie the makeup artist and Ruth the stylist. Precious!
This little “lady” was with us all day. Precious! What can I say, another great day! If you feel the energy behind my words you will get a taste of it…hopefully.
Still time in the afternoon for another walk by the lake and also buying gifts for my daughters birthday , before getting on the long flight home ( no direct connection) but guess what? Another great meeting! This time with a young man, a mountain guide, we talked non stop all the way to Berlin which was his destination…and we were both so happy that we had met! Last part of the flight home was a sleeping time. A good good day at work at life. My life! The way I choose it to be. Filled with magic and blessed moments.
A week ago…or two. I don`t know why it sometimes takes two weeks between my blogs except I really NEED it to be that way! Full on life! And moments of rest are such an important part of it all. Walking my life between modelling, different projects, meetings and actually walking in nature, all connected to walking my talk…inner beauty and sustainability, knowing the love we are as an essential part of being able to love the earth we live on and from…and loving my fellow walkers on earth…all connected…all unique. Been so ANGRY lately about how I dispose my own time. This ROARING LONGING to just be outside and be part of nature. SO I DID!
All organic breakfast at hotel Kulturhuset in Järna…such a treat!
Went on a walking meditation on EKOLEDEN passing gardens…
in late bloom
passing one special place
RESTING resting resting. GO OUT AND GET LOST IN NATURE AND FIND PEACE! my inner voice said. So I did.
Crazy in love with fallen leaves and roots, walking for hours…and hours
back to the Kulturhus where the evening sun lights up

in this golden room to a beautiful grey day…Why beautiful grey day? Soft rain falling is so peaceful on an early saturday morning. It says:Beloved you have nothing calling you out except your own heart. And eventually it did call me out to most delicious all organic breakfast from Järna cafe, sitting for hours by the fire writing and meeting friends. I had forgotten my chargers so I was totally off social media. What a bliss! I also did not have access to phone numbers. That was a bit of a problem, realising how incredibly dependant I am on my iPhone. Anyway all of that helped me to just BE and to be free from must do`s and habits.
what a beautiful morning
what a great breakfast
to my hearts joy I met dear friend Ellen Molnia doing some xtra work to add on to the travelling expenses for her and her family going four months to India this winter. You should hear this woman sing and perform! Her voice is flowing gold, her performance is pure ecstasy and joy and her heart is all of that and more. Look for GOLOKA
another room at hotel Kulturhuset. They come in different colours. I have stayed in a red one as well. Then I needed to be held in the warmth of the heart and now I wanted golden sunshine.
Friendship beyond age, me and Lucy.
Last Friday is an event at KULTURHUSET in Järna, arranged by young people and attended by all ages. That may seem like a small detail but is very rare in Sweden, all ages meeting, relating and enjoying each others company and gifts. The last friday of the month, music is happening here. Both live and DJ:s. Great ecological hamburgers or vegoburgers are also happening then from Järna cafe. I love this place! I love all events they do here! I love the YIP program and the new students that come once a year for an in depth training in sustainable guardianship of our planet Earth and I love the nature around here. Both ecological gardens and forests and the Baltic, all in one place. All sustainable, all beautiful! A project saving the Baltic sea also has it`s roots here. This Last Friday my friend Lucy whom I met as a young YIP student two years ago played her sax with her boyfriend Tim on guitar and John, who had flown over from the states for this special event, on drums. Lucy and I met in a little tree house where she was sitting and writing as I stepped in. I immediately knew that I had met a sister of heart. Lucy was also one of the initiators of the S.O.S. Summer of Soil program last summer at Kulturhuset Järna. In terms of fashion how can anything be more fashion than caring for the beauty and survival of all beings and species on our planet.
late at night I went over to the hotel Kulturhuset for a good night sleep, with open window, drippling rain and birds song in the early morning.
