It´s such a good morning!
Water is flowing again, hard shells breaking, my cold heart melting, I have HOPE.
So today I won´t spend my time defending why I think it´s ok to criticize the system even if one is depended upon it (this system has permeated everything, water, sky, body, mind dosn´t mean one should keep quiet, imagine a world where one is not allowed to criticize the power!) and I won´t explain why we ran into the wild only to raise our voices (regaining a sense of agency/reminded why to fight for the greater good) Nope.
Today I will show you this
First we inspected the building materials, the firewood, the animals, the seedlings, the land, the water, the sky, up and above, down and below
We are HOME and this is what our hands look like. Again.
Having done the speaking tour will allow us to invest in soil enrichment materials as well as maybe finally some boards to cover the cabin. Maybe a two-wheel tractor, let´s see.
But having done the speaking tour, having done this extrovert thing… it´s not only something we do for the money, it´s not only something we do to get home, oh, we are blessed to be able to return to this!, no, it´s something we do because something happened out here, in the wild and now I want to tell you about it before we welcome the people of the forest to he traditional sunday coffee, I want to tell you about it because I feel obliged to do so.
We woke up out here.
We were reminded that humans are strong, capable, we hold tremendous powers and that we are not evil.
A sense of power was rekindled. Having your body, mind, soul tickled like this can be utterly and extremely painful, I have told you much about that- but above and below everything else is this:
Let´s do what we can! Let´s stand together!
It is called hope.
Lastly I want to show you the music video we made the other day in the city.
See, my husband Jeppe is a musician but he have not been playing music for four years (except maybe you could say that there is some musicality in swinging the axe).
He left the industry just as I did. Let´s not try and be artists anymore, it´s insane, everyone arguing over the same small dog bone, everyone fighting to “make it” only that it happens to the 1% – the rest of us are kept poor and in our places, reinforcing the status qou, hell no, no more!
I left my so-called writing career and he left his so-called music career.
Only the words were necessary, I couldn´t live without them, I understand the world through them. To him it was different. Not a sound.
Then half a year ago he suddenly sat down and made 12 songs. It was crazy. He was absorbed, talking, walking in music, music flowed from him, he´s been a mad scientist this whole winter.
Our friend Persille, who grew up in the industry, famous father, she saw the destructiveness of it, she left too… only when he made the music she couldn´t help herself so she made the words and she sang them… with great reverence.
This music video is a prayer.
We had to do something. Four years ago we were sitting there not knowing what to do, WHAT CAN WE DO!!?… about the climate crisis, the social unrest, poor children, there are so many crisis´es not at least a crisis within a lot of us (inside of our selves) what to do, what to do, what to do?
We just ran.
Running is a valid option. Humans have been doing this all through the history of mankind (seeking new territory, starting all over)- fleeing is looked down upon but in actuality fleeing danger is wired into our existence: when in danger: run!
I will not excuse this anymore, I will not defend it.
We did what we did and now we are ready to fight the danger and face the opposition, we are ready to contribute, we are ready to believe, we have hope.
So I say it again. This music is a prayer. It is send into the world from a place of hope.
I hope you will support Jeppe and Persille in any way you can, be it money or solidarity or sharing this video.
They are doing something- outside of the industry- I love them.
(and thunderboy is in the video too!)
