Curriculum Vitae

Hi ! 
I'm glad you're here. You can think of this website as an online "general store". You'll come for some flour and leave with some gossip, a soda pop and three cans of beans. I am going to give you some links to some things that inspire me and I'm going to give you some stories. I'm also going to ask you to "lend me your ears". Let's do yoga together, let's help others together, let's heal together. Let's be friends.

Below, you'll find a selection of projects I've created and those on which I continue to work. I'm a younger old woman and an old kid at the same time so don't have any expectations. I've been at this blogging game a long time. An Icelandic guys used to make fun of me for blogging eight to ten hours a day. That was back in the early 2000s - do you remember, Helgi ? I haven't made the six-figure mark that everyone is selling (some people want you to believe, to trust is the truth) and sometimes I feel bitter about that (Helgi had a big impact on me). 

The other day, while riding my bike home, I looked off to my right and four deer were running alongside with me. The way they bounced up into the air and, quickly - like rocket ships, put a lot of joy in my heart. 

Then they were gone. Just like that.

Come back...
