This Saturday I woke up and just knew that it’s time for me to see the Swedish forests again. To reconnect with my roots in the nature I know and love. I can skype with friends, but trees and lakes don’t have skype …
This part of the Big Heart of Humanity journey is complete. I found “Who is Embracing?” and now the next phase starts.
So, I’ve booked a flight next Monday to Copenhagen. It’s a very good feeling. But I will miss Cape Town …
I’ve been thinking about going to Namibia, a country everyone says is so beautiful, but beauty is one thing, to be connected is an other. My relation to the plants on these pictures from South Africa, is very shallow, we don’t really have a relation.
Of course I could get to know this landscape and connect to it. But it would take time.
I feel how much I’m longing for being with the forests, the lakes, the fields and the species I know. To reconnect with my roots. Sit with the animals and plants and ask the question “Who is Embracing?”.
I don’t know what will happen, but I know what I will do — among the very few things I still own, is my tent and my bike …
I’m not going to settle down, I have no longing for an other home than where I happen to be at the moment. I will continue to go where the Big Heart of Humanity project wants me to go. The journey continues even if I’m in Sweden.
I’m looking so much forward to embrace all of you, my friends and family back in Scandinavia!
