This is so true. Learning to live in the now might be the most important thng we ever learn, or master.
“People these days don’t know how to just sit in a room or any environment and merely absorb it and take it in. Instead, they have mind-numbing games on their phone to devote their attention to, facebook updates to know about, text messages and tweets to send, beautiful robotically edited pictures to post in an attempt to make their life seem somewhat interesting and from this desire to let people know what they are doing. And they miss the beauty in the details and the little things; they miss living in that beauty.
Sometimes I want to ask them things like, did you not notice the textures and shape of that room, did you not hear what he was really saying, did you not see the large bird molesting the smaller birds in the tree, did you not see that adorable old couple on the bench helping one another to…

Let me tell you about last night
I got to enjoy the summer solstice with a good friend, we met up with a group of women (one man) to celebrate the longest day of the year. We did not take any pictures, therefore I will find a video from a similar dance and try my best to describe the scenario.
We met about six in the evening and danced 5 rhythm dance till about nine. We did the wave of dance Gabrielle Roth style. Then there was time for food and togetherness. It was just wonderful.
Here is a video explaining and showing the 5 rhythms of dance;
This is what I did last night, loosen up, totally. Barefoot outside on the ground with a BIG group of people that are just like me, looking inwards in the midst of the material world. We were surrounded by the Icelandic nature and the midnight sun. The rain made the senses dance too. The scent from the birch is unforgettable!
It was lovely and I am THANKFUL for the beautiful moment.

After a blog stop I find it hard to start again.
We are back in Iceland, in a temporary housing though. We get our house next spring. But after a year not working we really need to «cut the fat». We need to keep expenses as low as possible. We are adjusting, this is our third day. I got my blender started today and managed to make my first morning shake since June 5th. I took the heavy blender with me on a road trip and on the flight. Everywhere I went my blender and vitamins did too. But in New York I strayed off, although the place we got to stay in was lovely. We were staying in a friends working studio so I did not want to mess with the fruit and veggies and the protein powder, rice milk and you know what else… So I just decided to rest my case. I can feel it in my joints though. Too much coffee and too little good food. But the routine will be there soon.
I feel like I have an old machine to get started
I wanted to start writing again as soon as possible so that I would not fall out of my routine completely.Staying at the studio (the temporary housing) has many advantages. It is spacious and a good work place. The bonus feature is that looking out of the window is a meditation in itself. I see the ocean , the small boats and the magical Snæfellsjökull. (Jules Verne, A journey to the center of the Earth.

Change The Code
I don’t get people who always complain about being too busy. They are always running from here to there and back again.
It seems that in the end it only seems to cause some kind of resentment. These people are over tired and over worked.
I say do less, not more.
You really need to take time for yourself first. It is okay to laze around. I said so.
Sit quietly with your coffee and read the paper or just sit and watch the birds.
Take a super hot bath with no distractions!
How does that sound?
This was my long weekend from my soul sucking day job and the weather here in Nova Scotia was perfect.
Sunny and very warm. On Friday we went to the beach and it was amazing.
This a photo of the actual beach. Rissers beach provincial park. It has a pretty good campground…

I am proud of the Polish bee farmers and their accomplishments to agriculture.
Poland is the first country to formally acknowledge the link between Monsanto’s genetically engineered corn and the Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) that’s been devastating bees around the world. What that means is that bees have been disappearing. If the bees disappear we are in big trouble because of their important role in pollination. And who has bought the leading research company for CCD? Well you guessed it! Monsanto
I saw this trailer on the film»Queen of the sun«. The film is about the disappearance of the bees. It is very interesting and frightening at the same time. This is what the Colony Collapse Disorder is about.
What that has to do with GMO? Well, in America there are no requirements to label GMO foods as you can see in this graph
Most governments are protecting the citizens and requiring labelling of GMO foods. But the general public in America does not even know what GMO is;
We need the FDA to regulate the GMO foods, so that we have a choice. We need the FDA on the people’s side for once and make labelling of GMO foods mandatory.
Go to www.labelgmo.org to learn more
Here is a video if you have never heard of Monsanto and where they come from. They are originally a chemical company so why are they in food production?

If you haven’t heard recently, coffee can now help you live longer! Yes, that cup of joe you once thought it was a near obsession is now something that can combat conditions like: heart disease, respiratory disease, stroke, injuries and accidents, diabetes, and infections.
Neal Freedman, Ph.D., Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, NCI, and his colleagues examined the association between coffee drinking and risk of death in 400,000 U.S. men and women ages 50 to 71 who participated in the NIH-AARP Diet and Health Study. Information about coffee intake was collected once by questionnaire at study entry in 1995-1996. The participants were followed until the date they died or Dec. 31, 2008, whichever came first.
The researchers found that the association between coffee and reduction in risk of death increased with the amount of coffee consumed. Relative to men and women who did not drink coffee, those who consumed three…
