Return IV

I bought a new book the other week, it’s called ’Do one thing every day that scares you – a journal’. Every day for 365 days you get a little note, quote and an exercise on how to meet your fears on a daily basis. I fell in love with the book the day I […]

Held

My producing partner Holly had told me a couple of years ago about a rockstar who had said that now looking back on his life he could see that every single thing happened at the right moment, the right time, even though at the time it didn’t feel like it. I’ve loved thinking about that […]

Going in

On Sunday a producer of a movie I had done years ago in Europe came to LA for a week of meetings. Amazing to reconnect after not having seen her for 5 or so years. Talking about Paris and the working situation in France and then spending an evening with a director she’s working with […]

Return I

This Monday I returned to Stockholm after having spent a month in the south of Sweden. Most of May was spent in solitude, and as I now came back to the bustling city from the stillness of the countryside; the difference between the two became a clash.

The Return

So we have both literally returned from time at home in May and my personal mission in June is to return to my core beliefs to my imagination, to my dreams and aspirations for myself and my life. With holding the managing and planning part of my mind at bay until July I want to […]
