I am probably driving my friends nuts right now, because in the last couple of months most of my FB posts basically say this: Life. Is. Good. Or I tell them how much I love my life. Or how much I love my home. And my (new) home town! I think I have finally found … Continue reading The unwavering power of detachment.
As the world continues to literally go down in flames, I'm sitting here thinking about how nice it would be to check out, pay the bills, get rid of all the "baggage" and just go on my merry way.... Go back to Thailand, or maybe go somewhere new to me, like Central America. Down-size, cut … Continue reading I want “simple”. Simple makes happy. I want someone who sees that too. Are you out there?
As I called out in my last blog post The strangest experience ever, about how coming back to Seattle this time, didn't send me off into a total spin. On the contrary, I felt like a visitor in my own home and in my own neighbourhood, where I literally know everyone... A bit like "an out of … Continue reading I am finally detached – and that’s why I have found true happiness!
So, I came back to Seattle today, after being in Sweden for a little over three weeks. And it's not the first time, far from it, that I've been away for 2 or 3 weeks.

This is a great post – I love the honesty – and I can very much relate. It seems the work on self-improvement in regards to myself and my own person has progressed a lot more and faster, than my “mindfulness” in regards to others.

Thanksgiving is not something we celebrate where I come from, obviously, but it is my favourite US holiday by far. It is a time to come together with friends and family, over a nice meal, and just enjoy the time together. Most years I haven't been celebrating but this year I am - in exactly … Continue reading Time to be Thankful…
