Love is Equal. March 26, 2013

Love is Everywhere. Love is Equal. Does equal marriage even need to be a question?

Celebrate love. Don’t ban it. Do like Sweden, and raise the flags for all celebrations of love – gender neutral.

During the weeks leading up to Pride Stockholm you can see rainbow flags flying from the flagpoles that line the water in front of the royal castle. (more…)

 

All or Nothing. September 8, 2012

If you want to get your venture done – it’s all or noting. If you start a crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter – it’s all or nothing. Either you reach the finish line – or you don’t. Either you receive all the funds – or none.

The benefits of supporting a Kickstarter project? Well, let me give you an example…

Jazz singers and performers

Nicolas Bearde and Bobby McFerrin

These are two great local musicians in the Bay Area, Nicolas Bearde and Bobby McFerrin, normally singing together in the Bobby McFerrin’s renowned vocal ensemble “Voicestra” as well as having their own solo careers. I am going to have a vocal class on stage presence and performance technique with one of them! And receive an Autographed Pre-Launch CD. For $100. Why? As a “Thank you” for supporting the production of the next CD?!?!

Who should thank who?

Anyone else signing up? Check it out! You might prefer a different bonus… (House concert, catered dinner with entertainment, concert tickets, CDs and more).

Click here for the latest update I received from the #YouAreSensational campaign this morning.

So… either Nicolas Bearde reaches his finish line – or I don’t get my vocal session! :O Please like, share and or pledge if you would like to support this. Every act counts. – Thank you!

What does music mean to you? Just saying… oh yes – here is the address: http://kck.st/N0h9X4.

To me? I think music is the beat of love and life. Something to support and enjoy.

 

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.

Johanna
