This Matter of Mimicking

Wide Awake But Dreaming

This morning has been good, although it would be much better if this cold would be gone with the wind and leave me along, because I damn sure need a good night’s sleep, and I’m tired of heading off to bed and coughing up a lung for twenty minutes as I try to relax.  It’s a total pain in the ass, let me tell you.

Annas Art - FärgaregårdsAnna

Vi behöver alla bli planetskötare

We have a radio program in Sweden, during the summers, where Swedish famous people talks about different subject from their point of view.

Professor Johan Rockström talked about how we can save the planet by becoming planetary attendants.

He did this radio talk in an English version. I recommend you all to listen to him. He has very important things to say to us all.

This link will take you there, I hope. The site is in Swedish, but if you look closely you will find a section that says “english version”

Please let me know if you don’t find the track.

Johan Rockström 12 juli kl 13:00 – Sommar & Vinter i P1 | Sveriges Radio
