Eye contact

The powerful look of a child

I remember those dark times after I lost the light of infancy and before I accepted myself, when it was hard to look in the eye at certain people. Those people with piercing looks, who made me feel like they saw me as I really was, naked from those layers of fabricated fabulousness that I … Continue reading Eye contact

Chernobyl and patriarchy

I watch Chernobyl and what I see is leaders in fear. A world constructed around lies that must be protected with more lies, with force, with blame and abuse. All to avoid responsibility. To avoid the courage it takes to let go of your armours and admit the truth. Because truth is only seen as … Continue reading Chernobyl and patriarchy

Somebody who kept the spirits high, who united the group along the hardships of the mission. That person was the cook, Adolf Lindstrom. That makes me think of the role … Continue reading The need for entertainment

Hello everybody

One day I'll look back to these lines and I will remember where I was when I wrote them. We humans are like that, we give meaning to every single thing in our lives. And so we create stories around meaning. And we tell them. And we share them with others for all sorts of … Continue reading Hello everybody

Where do I get great music for my videos?

No, you're not the only one wondering where to get the best music to use legally in your videos. Notice I highlight legally, because you can't use the last album you bought in iTunes. Not without breaking a few rules and being taken down by YouTube and Facebook. And we don't want that. https://youtu.be/WBoXJrdMc3M Did you … Continue reading Where do I get great music for my videos?
