A Single Man

All my life I´ve been facinated by people who dare to jump, change direction in life, follow their heart. Therefore I´m impessed by and curious about fashion icon Tom Fords directorial debut A single man. I´m off to see it next Monday, thanks to Moderådet (The fashion council) in Stockholm. It´s been told in articles that large parts of Hollywood laughed when Ford began to work on the film, but now Colin Firth is nominated for an Oscar. Check out the interview below with Tom Ford.

Happy Old Days

My darling husband is the best at scouting articles from around the world. This one, from New York Times is about aging happily and all the adventures people in their 80ies and 90ies have nowadays while hiking, traveling, flying over the English channel in a single-engine biplane etc. I´ve said it before: 60 is the new 40, 70 is the new 50 and experience and wiseness is the new black.

Missing New York

Is creativity divine or a ghost?

I love TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) - a conference, site and a meeting place for creativity, knowledge and great ideas in California. Not to long ago author Elisabeth Gilbert - who wrote the mega hit Eat, Love, Pray - spoke about how to nurture creativity. I watch this for the free thinking, the laughs and because it gives me relief when I struggle with my own writing. Looking forward to read her follow up Commited, that I got for Christmas.
