I’m back! šŸ™‚


I’m back, and I want to be creative again. The key of life for me is to stay true to myself. To whom and what I am.


Follow me on the journey – and if you like what I do, I appreciate it if you share my work, or support me in whichever way you can.

So, I’ve entered my first collaboration! šŸ™‚ How about that, hmm? I think it’s awesome, and I look forward working with Will Atherton who runs the Fenrir Canine Show (among others) on Youtube. He’s a dog behaviourist working with educating people in how to raise dogs to be, as he says, “the perfect canine companion”, but also in being strong, balanced, consistent leaders for their dogs.

In general, although I may not use the same terms as Will Atherton, we are pretty much on the same page. What differs is that he actually do this for a living, where I don’t (for many reasons). He’s also in Britain, so I won’t work with any dogs personally. But with such huge plans for the future as he has, I can still be a helping hand.

And since dogs, their behaviour, the very interesting issue of leadership where dogs are concerned, I’m happy to work with Will and the Fenrir Canine Show.

I am at my best when working with others, so I’m thrilled to do this, actually. And isn’t it amazing being able to do that despite the fact we’re in different countries. Covid-19 – you got nothing on this, because I am not working in an office.

Working from a distance really does rock, I must say. šŸ˜€

So, now I want to move forward and find other things to do, new people to work with, to fill my life with what’s important and meaningful to me. These are all parts of me being authentic and staying true to myself, and to me, there’s nothing more important than that.

Other than that; I’m currently working very hard on surviving the heat wave that’s been torturing Sweden for the last couple of weeks. I don’t handle heat very well; I get slow, I can’t think properly, my body slows down to survival mode, and it’s extremely tiresome. But hopefully, my body and mind will speed up soon, and then there’ll be some action again. šŸ™‚


Key of Life

staying true to oneself

So. I’m back. I’ve been away from creating stuff on a regular basis for a very, very long time. But years of dealing with my bipolar disorder have made me bored and restless, so it’s time I do what I’m best at.

Create stuff.

I’ll do it differently this time, though. Last time, I tried to do what other people wanted, and that doesn’t work for me at all.

I’m at my very best when I create things that for one reason or the other is important to me. That’s what I intend to do here, and I hope you’ll like it.

Since I am retired from work due to my bipolar disorder, I have very limited resources to actually do everything I want to do. Please consider supporting me once in a while, or perhaps on a regular basis, so I can keep doing all the stuff I love doing.

As for staying true to oneself; that is a quiet reminder to myself that I can’t be anyone else but me. I tried for so many years to be someone else, but I can’t. I am who I am, and I am not appologizing for it. Not anymore.

Key of Life is just getting started, so changes will happen, material and content will be added and removed. Fear not; this will be awesome in the end. ā™„
