Integrity

I have, not even a month after the Swedish election, where I’ve been elected substitute to the city council, noticed that integrity will be so important in order to survive. Integrity is complex. To be able to keep it, knowledge is essential to say the least. And trust is your biggest enemy. But integrity is not…

Perspective

Last night, when I lay down in my medium hard bed, with my “medium to warm” duvet, my head was filled with the images from the shores of Turkey, the central station in Budapest, the boarders of Syria and the young children caring for their infant siblings. Somewhere among the pictures of men and women, holding…

Get a life

Really I need to. I need a goal or something to set my mind to before I loose the same. Is it training, a course, a new career or should I go into politics? I just do not know but I must do something. At the moment I am just getting annoyed with all the…

Children

Watching a film about child labour in the cocoa industry. I know that this is not the only corrup business, but there is something wrong. Terribly wrong. In the entire food business.

Same same but different

It is crucial to share or anchore what you do. If not, people do not know what you have done and someone else might take cred for it. It took me 39 years, 6 weeks and one day to figure that out. Better late than never.

19 hrs friends

The heading could trick you in to think that I am about to talk about short encounters, not going as expected. But it is really quite the opposite. Apparently this post covers all (most) my topics. And that is what happens when you bring old friends together. Meeting them, even if it was 15 years…

Hat off

My and the Mr just finished watching the excellent documentary “The Interrupters“. Following three violence interrupters on the streets of Chicago. I love watching documentaries with the Mr since we always meet in the dicussion of the topic. And it is good to do that – discuss. Brings us closer. Thereto as a mother, I…

Oh, another one

The opinion maker in me woke up as I browsed the online “news” this morning. Anthony Weiner, democrat, has apparently been captured with his pants down, literally. Or to be precise, he apparently captured himself with his pant down. Why, why, why do all these men (please don’t argue, the men must outnumber the women…
