 Hollywood thriller. It made me inspired to make the drawing above. And I wrote this  to the owner of the Photo:

“Beautiful scenery and very cinematic shot, and you gave me an idea to use blue in my Black and White photos. What a Blues!

Istanbul Blues

The  Instagram photo was captured somewhere in Istanbul, with a woman standing near a corner with an  umbrella in her hand. and a Heavy Rain falling down.

It will cost blood, sweat and tears

“It will cost blood, sweat and tears”, Churchill said on a Speech.

I saw this WWII photography on Instagram, and I was thinking about a lyric by Leonard Cohen who died last week: “First we take Manhattan, the we take Berlin”.

And it will cost fighting against evil, such as bullying, xenophopia, wall-builders and looking for trouble

The Worlds Oldest Tree

I was   listening on a Swedish radio   show with live stories all around the nature.

This morning It was a story from fjällen, the swedish scandic mountain range. The place was Fulufjället mountain,   and the report was telling about Old Tjikko.

The old spruce  has 9500 years old roots and is the world’s oldest organism.

The old tree tells a story about hiking and survival, about 1500 years before it took root high up on the mountain, so ended the ice age.

I am full of wonder and respect for the Old  Tjikko. One day, I would like to visit  this Survivor.
