My work place. I love it.

Bike pants preceding bikes.


It's Friday - Lose yourself to dance






Ps. Yes can now dance but not run with foot.

Everyday thought

Some of my best friends are words.

My first family




















Thinking back, this is how I remember family life. This is not the whole truth, but it's what I prefer to revisit. The four of us playing games. Dad pretending he doesn't know the rules, arguing his case in a way that's just too insane and hilarious to take. I'm doubling over from laughing to the right, my brother tipping backward, I can hear him howling. Mom, always the voice of reason, is hearing dad out, preparing to shoot down his ridiculous and extensive arguments with logic.

Such a great pic to go with an obit!

























Such a great obit too. Jean Bach seems to have been amazing.

"As a teenager she knocked on Duke Ellington’s door and established a lasting friendship.
Moving east to attend Vassar College, a short train ride from Harlem, she practically majored in trips to the Apollo Theater."
Jean passed at the age of 94. "Until six months ago, she was out on the town listening to jazz."

Disappearing comments

I hate Bloggers comment-thing.

I love love love every comment you make, not even "you're ugly" could really get me down. A reader connected! But now I've heard from several of you that you've tried to post comments only to see them disappear.

I've tried to fix it.
Leave a comment to see if it works now.

If you don't know what to say, simply type in where you're reading this. Arm chair, Alabama, subway Sydney etc.

THANK YOU!
love

Can I get a reader's honest account please?




















Is this worth buying? I've loved so many of his books, but could not get into Chipmunk Squirrel manifesto whatever.

Weirdest phone call

Phone rings.

Caller: "I repeat: I'm giving you the chance for a free makeover! Then you get to have your picture taken!!!"

Me: Why would I do that?

Caller: Because! 

Me: But you know...I'm a GROOOOWN WOMAN.

Caller: I mostly book women your age. 

Me: It's not for me.

Americans, please help

We're moving to NYC in about a month.
I suddenly realized my e-mail address might not be the best choice as I enter my new life as a Brooklyn parent?

it's
emi at lovegun dot net


I don't love guns, instead, I'm armed with love. And having your company named the same way as a KISS song is a great way to pep yourself when needed.

lovegun dot com is some porn site that I might get confused with.

would you get a different mail address if you were me?
Or just tell people to deal with it?

I need help here. Help me. Please.

love

Bra. 

More Kerber





















The very day I had this pic taken to remind me how much I love this blouse, a woman told me to remember to wear sun protection. Does it look like this ghost of a woman needs that?
I keep posting Kerber-pics because I really, really like Marielle and her whole business. You can't stop me.

One fine moment with Niki

Kerber on a model and in real life





Went to the Kerber pop-up store and like a child, I put my old clothes in a bag and walked out wearing this blouse. Someone told me that's how you should always shop. If you don't want to put it on right away, perhaps you don't really want it and have better things at home. 

Color is Tiffany blue, a great choice for all of us who will never get or buy anything from there but still associate this particular hue with some kind of...privilege. 

Kids are alright.



Will soon elope with this man.


Sadly, our son turned out to be a real basket case.



















most at home.

Why I need a new camera

Met up with Rachel Khoo, Mia Öhrn and Lotta Lundgren yesterday. 
Three completely fantastic individuals. 

Such a shame I only had my phone to document this with. 
You'll just have to imagine what it all really looked like.

Have removed word moderation to facilitate comment posting.

That means we all have to live with spam comments like this, somehow poetic in their own right:

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter
to be actually something that I believe I'd never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and very wide for me. I'm
looking forward in your next publish, I'll attempt to get the grasp of it!

So feel free to talk to me.

Måste sägas på mitt eget språk

Inget är mer överdrivet artigt och onödigt än alkoholen när den väcker en mitt i natten för att säga hejdå när den lämnar kroppen.

Help please






















I love Anders Canon Eos 5000 but now need a camera of my own. Any suggestion of which one to buy? I don't need bells and whistles, just one great camera. At a reasonable price.

New York update

Have found a place to live. Are you in Williamsburg? See you there.

Have not had a sick day in years. YEARS.



I attribute this to plenty of dancing, standing up, sitting down, in my dreams.
Remember to dance, daily.

Can't wait for the new Daft Punk album, to be released tomorrow. Also can't wait for - getting back into running post surgery. This summer people, in New York.

Coca-cola steel


WELCOME MONDAY!

Feeling good
Birds flying high you know how I feel 
Sun in the sky you know how I feel 
Breeze driftin' on by you know how I feel 

It's a new dawn 
It's a new day 
It's a new life 
For me 
And I'm feeling good 

Fish in the sea you know how I feel 
River running free you know how I feel 
Blossom in the trees you know how I feel 

It's a new dawn 
It's a new day 
It's a new life 
For me 
And I'm feeling good 

Dragonflies out in the sun you know what I mean, don't you know 
Butterflies all havin' fun you know what I mean 
Sleep in peace when the day is done 
And this old world is a new world 
And a bold world 
For me 

Stars when you shine you know how I feel 
Scent of the pine you know how I feel 
Oh freedom is mine 
And I know how I feel 

It's a new dawn 
It's a new day 
It's a new life 
For me 
And I'm feeling good

(written by LESLIE BRICUSSE, ANTHONY NEWLEY)

Trying to take one decent pic of Niki


Not the most natural of smiles.



"Think I have to go to the bathroom."



Yes. This is what she looks like.
