it's a journey to better judgement

Humans are flawed and humans make mistakes.

This statement is so true and not something that we should ignore so easily but somehow something we often overlook.
But the fact that people make mistakes, that we all sometimes lack judgement and thoughtfulness, this is something so universal and from time to time it will cause us pain and grief.
The experience however, and how we chose to deal with it is what allows us to grow and hopefully move on.
Even if you do something with good intentions you can still cause harm to another person,  because what helps one person may hurt someone else. 
And sometimes your action might look like a good one in the beginning, but in the long run it might actually cause harm, so it doesn't always matter what mindset you're in while taking action, may it be in anger or happiness or with good or bad intentions,
because the consequences.will.still.be.there.

And once again I will say this:
"What I believe is right and what I perceive as truth might differ from what YOU believe in and what you regard as right or wrong."

This is where common sense should kick in and guide you through whatever situation you're in. 
But alas, we're often told that being young is also all about making mistakes, and most of us experience lapse of judgement from time to time.
One seemingly innocent action can go from the tiniest ripple to become a wave crashing onto the shore.

It's so easy to point fingers at others without a single regard to how dirty your own backyard might be. 
But we all need to stop and think really hard about why we are the persons we are today and who we want to become.

 It might take us a lifetime to learn but we grow with the mistakes and experiences, which is why it is so important for each and every one of us to take a minute and really think about what we're about to do and what the consequences might be, before taking action and before we judge others.

First half of 2012

Inbetween work and being more or less constantly sick for the past 8 months I haven't been able to take my camera out as much as I'd liked to, and now I feel like I lost the spark for it. Also, my computers have died twice on me so now I'm the owner of two new ones(well, not so new anymore..), but without photoshop I can't play around with my photos the way I want to. ;(
I'm more focused practising my writing and drawing nowadays since I'm out of work and have all the time I need, but that's another story.
My health is better now and I hope to return to uni this fall. Fighting!

Life is such a fleeting moment, like the passing seasons, the erratic summers and the fickle winters up here in Scandinavia.
It comes and goes and there's nothing we can do about it.
Fundamentally, it's all about the circle of life, but we all reach that moment in time, where we don't wish to let go just yet, when something unexpected happens that forces us to realize how brittle the borders between life and death is.

No matter how many times we experience those hardships that is a part of life itself,
every single time will still be a slap in your face, a wake-up call to remind you.

Inbetween happiness there's sorrow.

But After sorrow, if you try hard enough, surely your smile will return.

Long time no see

 Nitro is officially a part of our family now.
Linnea is currently enjoying the short and fickle swedish summer by working and losing the small tan she gained i April. 
Will hopefully return in September with full force, until then she'll try to take her camera out on a walk every now and then and also exercise her pen.

friday morning - daybreak

I took a walk after getting of the bus from Stockholm City in order to clear my head a little bit.
It was 2:30ish in the morning and the only ones awake in the forest were the animals, bugs and I.
I was contemplating waiting for the actual sunrise but decided against it because the mosquitos were having a real feast on my legs and probably since I hadn't gotten bitten for years, the bites got awfully swollen(they're driving me crazy right now) so I went home instead to catch some very well needed sleep.

I want to write again

I wish I could find back to that feeling I had when I was the most active with writing and when the inspiration was flowing.
I know that the one blocking it is no one other than myself, but it's hard for me to pick up where I left, after being inactive for so long.
I suppose what I need to do is to begin from scratch again, but somehow I'm too scared to start with nothing.
So for a while now, I've been going back to my old creations, and I've found a lot of material that I want to use and develop into something more.
But no matter how hard I try, it seems like I cannot write as smoothly as before, it simply doesn't feel the same. 
With time I've changed so much, as well as my style of writing. 
And I'm not so sure that it changed in a positively manner, I suspect that my language has gotten worse actually.
But this only gives me more reason to fight and start from the beginning once again. 
Turn a new leaf, find my style.
After all, for a long time now I've been walking around like a zombie, wanting to do nothing else than create.
It's been bothering me while awake as well as in my dreams.
I just simply need to pick up that pen and create something.
It's just like when I write in this blog..  I let the words flow freely.

Rather than my passion, maybe it was my motivation that got lost on the way?

Because I wouldn't create worlds, characters and stories in my head if the passion was gone.
I just simply can't put everything down on paper. I need to get rid of that block!!
