I realised I am not too late for this challenge by @anomandsoul, so I thought I would give it a go! Have read some quite nice #gettoknowme posts, and though I haven't read all people's 10 posts, they give a good resume and good picture of the steemians I didn't know so well before!
Ill start too with
i wrote this post 7 months ago when I joined Steemit, and I think I haven't actually moved so far from the intention I set out with!
I am gonna share with you here my crazy travel stories and pictures, like from the time I lived 3 months in caves in Crete, hitchhiked with a travelling band over land to India or traveled through USA in an old schoolbus and much more!
I will also share all my drawings and sketches that I make along the way!
Then I did a little second introduction post, dedicated to showing some of my previous artwork
I've been drawing since I was little and always loved it.
My favorite materials are ink-pen (mostly rotring rapidograph, to be technical), watercolors, pencil and colored pencils and I usually draw the things I see around me, may it be people, animals, flowers or objects
Then I wrote the first post I "promised" in my introduction, and this was my first recognised steemit post, and maybe still my highest payout post! (Probably since the Steem was a bit higher back then..!)
But it was great to get such a recognition so early, it really helped me get into steemit for real and write more posts like this, which I had put a lot of energy into.
I believe that in times in our lives where we manage to follow the stream of life, in the moment, with no personal goals of gaining, but just simply living, taking part of life in all it's dance and rhythm, everything just falls into place perfectly and life will sustain you in magical ways.
This was a post sharing just one magical day and I include it because all our lives are made up of days and moments, and when we stop up and soak in the beauty of just one day, it can turn out really magical!
We found a perfect little place for our camper and had a truly amazing day on the beach, playing in the sand and marveling at the colors of the rocks and stones. Big parts of the rocks has this crazy bright green color!
Willow enjoyed a whole day with both his parents full attention. We let him decide what to do and where to go all day.
Beautiful to follow your kids and see what they can show you about living life!
This is the beginning of the biggest series I have started on Steemit, and still not finished! The story of the longest travel I did with a band over land to India
So sometimes we felt like celebrities being treated with food and luxury, but always in between we were hitchhiking and sleeping rough in the most bizzare places sometimes. It was an extremely funny roller coaster of experiences of all sorts and the most adventurous and crazy times of my life.
I made this post about Rainbow Gatherings, because they hold a special place in my heart and life and consider myself a part of the Rainbow Family
It's not so much the gatherings itself - I have myself only attended 3 gatherings since my first one in 2009, but the biggest thing, I think, and why I so many times heard the phrase "Rainbow Gatherings changed my life", is the discovery of the family. Of a home. Anywhere.
I am very inspired by the ideas of gift economy and especially the writings of Charles Eistenstein. So about 4 years ago I decided to sell or offer my art in the spirit of the gift, and wrote my reasons to do so and what gift economy is about!
First of all, putting a price on creativity is like caging it. When I had an already set price on a commission, I realised that I rarely gave my full creative ability to it. That the frames were set and the work was less enjoyable.
A little photo series from all the different views from our home, which is a mobile campervan
A photo series of all the different views from our mobile home.
Living space inside a mobile home is small, but the garden is huge and ever inspiring!
Sometimes the view is inspiring and inviting, sometimes it's ugly and intruding
Another chapter in the long series about my journey over land to India with the band Caspian Caravan. A bizzarre experience of being TV-stars in Iraq! Mixed with the other experiences and feelings this country gave us.
One day we sat at the office of the TV station and suddenly saw the breaking news that Osama Bin Laden had been found! At the same time as we were playing famous in Iraq..!
It was quite a surreal situation about TV, fiction and reality. Somehow the whole world seemed like a bit of a Truman Show in some bizarre way..
I chose this as the last post, since it is part of my more recent life, slowly coming back to Denmark and exploring being a mother and family. This post is about the Network of families who has their children at home instead of in institutions and schools, which I met on the Danish Island Bornholm this summer.
There are also inspirations from the Continuum Concept and a wish to be responsible for the raising and growing up of the children. That the raising and most of the waking hours of the child is not being given over to "strangers" and institutions, but kept with the parents who love the child and can give the full support, attention and care the individual child needs.
That was it! Was a journey for me too to look through all my posts and to choose!
Thank you for stopping by! <3
