Wanted to make a small post on this day, although we are just “celebrating” at home drinking coffee and watching a new five part documentary called “From Sápmi to Alaska”. It is about the Sámi reindeer herders who went from here in the late 1800s to help teach the natives living there about herding. Many stayed, some returned.
A very chill corona friendly celebration you could say 😊
You don’t need to be vegetarian or vegan to be buddhist. I am not. Tantric buddhists have historically not been. We always pray for the animals (say mantras), and dedicate the merit.
You don’t need to be able to handle cold well or have any knowledge about reindeers to be sámi. I don’t. The old ways of life are changing, and only around 10% are herders today. Also, traditionally, sámis have been both fisherpeople, farmers, etc.
You don’t need to be eccentric to be a painter. I am not. I just like making art.
You don’t need to be good at maths or into technology to be autistic. I am not. In fact, I am so terrible at math I got extra tutoring.
You don’t need to have “everything in order” before becoming a parent. I don’t. Who does?
You don’t need to be scared to call yourself disabled if you have a chronic illness which limits you. It’s not a bad word, it’s just an explanation of your lived reality.
I am all these things and labels, but just mostly myself ❤ Or at least trying to be most of the time.
This is something I have been thinking about making for the last year or so, and finally I got around to do it. A webpage/blog where I can share pictures from photoshoots and more in-depth thoughts and ideas, and also use it as a platform for creativity (painting, sewing, photography etc.).
I am bilingual so I will be writing in both English and Norwegian depending on my mood and on my message. I could not decide on one language, and only sticking to one would be to limit myself. As you can see in the menu bar, I also have a shop where I will be selling different creations.
I love taking pictures and to model (especially my own clothes) so I will be posting my own photography and pictures from photoshoots. I am in addition to this very into spirituality, philosophy, meditation and other stuff which I think needs to be explored in this lifetime. I am a firm believer in not limiting oneself, so this blog will be about pretty much everything I feel like sharing. Anything from buddhist philosophy to make-up videos. And perhaps some cat pictures. I hope you will follow me onwards and feel free to use my pictures so long as you credit me.
