The beauty of – nothing – really – happening.

Summertime Smoothie

My all time favorite smoothie for hot summer days. Kiwi, banana and sparkling water. Super easy, super fresh.

And of course you can pick any fruits and berries you like. I sometimes switch the kiwi for frozen raspberries or strawberries, but there’s something about the kiwi/banana combination that just … well, you should just try it for yourselves.

Meet Giraffe

One of my graduation gifts. Probably the most random one. It’s been standing on top of a cabinet for almost a year, but was evacuated a couple of weeks ago due to an intense cleaning session, and it ended up on my kitchen table. In a casual way, you know?

Chandelier, Sia

The song is all right – the chorus is quite enchanting, but over all the song reminds me a tad bit too much of Rihanna’s Diamonds – but the real big deal here is the video.

Featuring eleven-year-old dancer Maddie Ziegler, this video is truly a piece of art, all by itself. There has been some controversy about her wearing a nude leotard, giving the appearance of her dancing around in the nude, but in my opinion it’s a masterpiece. There’s nothing sexual about it. The nakedness only highlights her dance and complete innocence.

The video immediately had me thinking of twelve-year-old Natalie Portman in Léon: The Professional, a great movie from 1994. Portman portrays the young girl Mathilda, who is reluctantly taken in by the hitman Léon (Jean Reno) after her family is brutally murdered by a corrupt and mentally unhinged DEA agent (Gary Oldman). The movie is one of my favorites, and is a must-see in my opinion.

I’ve been doing some thinking lately, and fortunately I have also come to a conclusion. First I’ve decided to start writing in english, because I really need some practice. Second I’ll do more writing. About life. About things i think about. Link to interesting articles. Post quotes. And i hope you’ll enjoy it just as much as I will. I hope you take the time to just slow down. Read. Stop this meaningless skimming through texts that we do every day.
