Apparently today is 20 years since he left… I say apparently because from some years up to this point, his departure has become a little ummm blurry to me. I am not sure anymore if it was June or July… the 22nd or the 18th. 17 years, 19 years…? no, 20! 20? I just can’t remember. Not that it matters but I just can’t. Or maybe it matters and the fact that I can’t remember it kind of infuriates me. I mean, that date should be more important, but it’s not anymore…
I know what you are thinking, this is going to be a long, sad, and cliche note about someone who has died and how painful it is but no, it’s not going to be that or at least I will do my best to avoid it (spoiler alert, yeah, some cliches might show up after all).
This is just a rough reminder of how great he was even if he made mistakes, and how strong he was even if he couldn’t help trying to sneak out and eat some ice cream against the dr’s recommendations; how funny he was, even if his jokes were silly and innocent at times (and yes, that humor runs in the family 😉 ). How passionate he was… I remember seeing him shedding some tears while listening to the music he loved. How devoted and loving he was, always telling us to ask mum first, before taking an important decision. How full of energy he was, even if he had the ability of closing his eyes and falling asleep almost automatically. How wise and intelligent he was even if he didn’t have the same opportunities in life than other people had. How deep and happy he was, even if we used to argue a lot about silly stuff. How honest he was even if he had told little white lies here and there. And how much integrity he had; he always taught us to be truthful to ourselves and to follow our own path. He was an awesome dad, even if we weren’t a perfect family…
I would have liked to get to know him a bit more to be honest… but I am happy I had him in my life for that long and even though I don’t remember the exact day he left, I will never forget him nor the length of his stay…
Happy new year!!! I really hope this new year makes all your wishes come true!
I feel blessed to be surrounded by amazing people and because I am doing what I love: MUSIC! And this new year has brought me so much already! So thanks and keep it coming 😀
New projects, new gigs… my loved ones by my side! What else a girl could ask?
I tell you in advance that I will be playing this Jan 19th in Berlin, Feb 2nd in Stockholm and on Feb 17th in Sheffield… and this is only the warm up for the re release of the album in The Netherlands this March… I will keep you posted!
I was still recovering from a cold today (picture it yourself: running nose that doesn’t want to stop and an exhausted body requesting more sleep?) but that didn’t stop me for waking up really early (7 am!!!) and running to the closest HM to be one of the firsts to enjoy (and spend money on) the Lanvin collection for H&M! And it was totally worth it!
I love amusement parks, I love roller coasters and Stockholm has both and good ones!
I went to this amusement park: Gröna Lund in Stockholm Sweden, yesterday. I didn’t want to rise my hopes up, knowing that Swedes are pretty conservative and kind of shy… in a way (believe me, I have been here for a while!). But I rushed my judgment. Not only the park was full of people, even though it was a rainy day, but I realized that when they want to have fun, they go for it with no restrain! Check “Insane” one of the roller coaster of the park and its main attraction these days! The ride doesn’t last long and I think it’s for the best! See it for yourselves 😉
Needless to say, I had crazy fun, wouldn’t have you? 😀
It is not related to witches actually! Yesterday and as every year, the Swedes gathered around a big bonfire like trying to scare the last chill days away… does it really work? Is the winter gone for good? Ummm, I’ll tell you soon (so far everything remains cold! brrrrrrr).
If you love animals like I do, this Academy Award winner documentary is a “must”. When I finished watching it I couldn’t believe how far human stupidity and omnipotence go… It’s a shame that some people is so blinded by the concept of intelligence that they forget to apply it…
And “The Cove” it’s only one example of this strange “superior” behavior that some human beings have…
Watch it, shed some tears if you feel like (I did!) but then do something to help this or other causes. It doesn’t take much… maybe a sing up in some website… perhaps a small $$ collaboration… everything helps!
Here is a petition to stop the cruelty shown in the documentary, so if you are interested, just sign it!
Sometimes a little break is not bad at all, isn’t is???
Working a lot in music, can make you as tired or even more than any other job! So I decided to enjoy myself on Friday. Have some friends over and throw this kind of horror night for them (I love horror films, by the way!).
