A picture says more than thousand words.
A bouquet of flowers speaks (above the) millions as well.

I Firmly Believe May 9, 2012

I have had The Dream in my head now for so many years, been focusing on it, drifting away from it while being drawn into other projects, been poked about it and returned to it, time and time again – not knowing exactly how to move forward, but being clear that it is something I can’t let go of. Every year that has passed there are new learnings and insights that I have made, and technical introductions that would be applicable – all contributing to the big picture. I start to feel, that now is the time. I can’t express how touching it is to hear support and “WANT” from others. Yesterday alone I got one phone call, one skype call and one email with different messages – the same supportive bottom line. Let me share the email from my friend and supporter Karl Mettinger with a poem he wrote. Enjoy.

I FIRMLY BELIEVE

(Uncensored without the New device called EyePhone)

I firmly believe
in resurrection, in life eternal, in righteousness in heaven and on earth!

I believe in our mission impossible
To help make us all to become one global family
And in
Shared resources,
Shared responsibilities,
Shared values and beliefs
And shared dreams!

I firmly believe in helping one another
To grow to our full potential
To blossom and carry fruit,
Good fruit that we all can share.

Life is too short not to set out from our comfort zones
In Life boats or Viking ships
to conquer new land
And make safe landings
where we rightly belong.

This is the time
To celebrate
New journeys
New beginnings
New spring seasons and summers
New harvests and seasonal fruits

Where do we go from here?
Where our dreams and visions take us
To the Holy Land of dreams fulfilled
To the dark corners of the world
to discover and explore

I firmly believe
In our mission to build bridges
To help people share one another’s wisdom and visions and dreams
And to help bringing together
All peoples to One Family!

I firmly believe
In the tech revolution
In Facebook
Twitter , Google and Wikipedia,
I believe in mobile phones, Skype
Androids and IPad.

Social networking can help us connect
But also the simple smile and invitations to conversations
As we walk our paths
or speed through
the highways

We need one another
One another’s eyes and ears
Hands and feet
Our bodies to hold onto
To caress and express
Our feelings
And create the worlds to come….

Karl Mettinger

Thank you Karl. I believe too.

Rock ‘n Roll! December 8, 2011

December 8. Would have been my fathers 75th birthday. As I visit my sister in-law’s Facebook page I find this rare photo of Elvis Presley and his father. Mm… will pick an Elvis song for my dad today.

So there are beautiful ones to choose. Bridge over troubled water, Love me tender… but the first one we played at the funeral, and the second one… I think he does feel the love and appreciation from me, my mom, my brother and his family. I think he is ready to move on. To move on with us. So the song I chose was this one:

A little less conversation, a little more action please. Time to rock ‘n roll! Get things moving.

Let’s get groovy! And hey – if you would create your own video with One True Media – what would you do?

Have fun,

Johanna

 

A Golden Moment October 10, 2011

Sometimes you just gotta stop and absorb the moment. It is easy to run run run – there is so much to do 24/7 to somehow make everything happen. Especially if you are working on something exciting, nearly approaching…

Last Sunday I finally got a moment with my client, dear friend and outstanding paintor, Catrine Näsmark – on the run. Quick download of all the updates and decision of which pieces of art to display on the website home page, and shouldn’t there be another color of the logo – which is really Catrine’s art signature. The invitation was to go out the day after. The new website had to be up. Right then and there I just had to stop. Co-creation on the run, with a smile. This is a golden moment. There Catrine is, running on the treadmill in Stockholm, skyping me with her iPhone – and here am I sitting in my yoga clothes ready to walk out the door to the next yoga class in San Francisco.

How on earth did we get things done before without all this technology? And how wonderful it is that we can share what we love through it. In Sweden we say “Shared happiness, double happiness”. Well – used with that intention in mind – what is the happiness factor you can create sharing your joy through social media? I like that idea…

And with permission: this is how it looked like.

#Freedom of creation with impact. That was the mantra for this year. How would that look for you?

Enjoy,

Johanna

Oh yes – the logo color chosen was red – you would really like to see it, on a painting in your own collection – or maybe your own portrait ;). And the impact? Change the world with colors.
