World Domination Loving Life

What ever it is – keep the dream alive.

“Envision the future, embrace the presence and achieve more than imagined.”

Johanna C. Nilsson (if I may quote myself)

There just gotta be some action in the embracing part… ;)

What is your next step?

When Ellen met Elias. “OMG” January 26, 2014

A TV guest that won’t be forgotten – and a video snippet you would not want to miss. When Ellen met Elias.

I encourage all of us to “do an Elias” per day. Just blurb your excitement out! And if we can identify what we are awesome at, just like Elias – that would be amazing.

Be yourself. Be different, and cool. Be inspired.

I just stumbled over the artist Catrine Näsmark‘s flicker account. I just love her art. Or as her husband says, “It is not paintings she does – it is story telling”. It is. And maybe that is why I appreciate it so much.

The story, the humor, the playfulness, the small details, and the largeness in the big size canvases.

Visit the Flickr account and see for yourselves. Enjoy the ride.

And, is Racing life?

Fall Harmonies – Friday Fall Harmonies November 20, 2013

Fall Life  Yesterday we, Keeva A Cappella, had the last rehearsal before our concert this upcoming Friday. Friday Fall Harmonies with local guest artist and poet Beryl Baker to warm up the mic. Or is it unplugged? It is unplugged. At least that was the instructions to one of the new songs. And maybe for a reason…

The new song I have in mind is “The Cave” with Mumford & Sons. A newly written a cappella version for our group by one of our new members. Imagine an acoustic, unplugged, in a wine bar version of that song (see/hear below). Although – this time it is at Dolores Park Cafe.

Yesterday I said “What would my last 7 years in San Francisco have been without Keeva?” It’s not to say that it wouldn’t have been great – but this group is a solid contribution to making it more than that. It’s really an awesome group of people, and… maybe come judge for yourself, see how a little bit of this groups music live impact you?!

We won’t give you this version of The Cave – but if you want to be this version of audience – feel free! ;)

BatKid Day Forever! November 15, 2013

SFBatKid

A 5-year old’s wish to Make-A-Wish-Foundation was shared, it got some supporters who shared it – and in just a few weeks a whole city was involved to make this boy’s wish come true: to be Batkid.

This morning San Francisco’s Police Chief Greg Suhr called the boy named Miles into service help fight crime. As Batkid he rescued a woman from cable car tracks in Nob Hill and captured the Riddler in the act of robbing a downtown bank. He even rescued the San Francisco Giants mascot — Lou Seal — who was kidnapped by the Penguin.Mayor Ed Lee gave Miles the key to the city, and announced “November 15 The BatKid Day Forever”. 10,000 volunteers had registered to be involved to turn San Francisco into Gotham City – and in the end many more than that showed up.

Question to the father: “How do you think this wish come through for Miles will impact Miles and your family?”
Father: “He has been in remission since June after 3 years of fighting cancer. With this we got closure. This is a great way to kick it off”.

“The San Francisco Chronicle issued a special edition cover which devoted their entire front page to the young superhero. The headline for the lead story is “Batkid Saves City.” The author? None other than Clark Kent. The other front page stories, all about Batkid, are written by Lois Lane, Brenda Starr and Perry White.”

Even the President of the United States was involved via Twitter and Vine.

Question to you: “How do you think this wish come through for Miles will impact you and your family?”

Make a wish. Make a wish come through. A little dose of hero inspiration.
