So this day has arrived..

The day my father left the flesh to enter something else. Something he during his whole life did not believe in, but in his last days he seemed do hold on to allthough he did not admit it. He got a small cross to wear around his neck and was very anxious to have it all the time. My father got a lot of extra time. The illness was merciless and slow. But he also held on. Afraid to let go. I wanted to release him. But how do you tell someone they can die now? I told him in my heart and in this song and somehow he heard me and he let go.

Jean Dark, New project and a new single

I will never let me downA song that felt so right in our dark times that we decided to release it on the first day of the 21st Climate Conference. And so much has happened in the world since we started recording. Thousands of refugees meeting closed boarders. Whole families having to sleep outside and then having to walk yet another day only to be turned down by the next boarder. Terrorists trying to rule the world by fear. No wonder we feel angry, scared and distressed. This song is about holding on to your dreams and wishes no matter what. See through the fear and capture a glimpse of hope.

 

Things in the doing no 2

Spending a lot of time in front of the computer reading bloggs. I’ve never been a bloggreader. I truley enjoy the feeling of papper between my fingers, but now it’s time to start spreading the word of a new band and a new song. In one week my new duo Jean Dark is releasing our first single “I will never let me down”.

And I will probably start reading musicbloggs more often…I quite enjoy some of them.

Find our facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/jeandarkmusic¬†¬† and find out more about us if you can’t wait until November 30th.

Eyes wide open

I’m keeping my promise to bring the camera almost every time I go out. Yesterday I brought it on a family outing. There are so many interesting and odd, funny things going on around you if you pay attention. Like that spot in Rosendals Garden where everything seemed to be a part of the grey colour scale except for one man in a yellow coat and his picnic. I had a great time, but my son got really fed up with me and my camera.GulMan

Streetphotography

So I dared myself to try streetphotography. My favourite genre in the art of photographing. There’s an excitment in catching a moment. But it takes time to find those special moments and you need to take a lot of photos before you suddenly find that interesting moment. Or you’re simply one of those who can make it look interesting by how you compose a picture in the moment. I haven’t looked up the rules about taking photos of strangers in the street so I started of with a self-portrait and a dog…
