Thoughts of today

Allow me to hold your hand through the darkness. To let you know that you are not alone, and that we share this time.

Let us find ways to overcome fear, emotions of separation, and solitude.
We are in this together. Your pain is my pain, and your tears are my tears.

Allow us to also share laughter and happiness. Gratitude for all that is.
To make our hearts shine brighter, despite times of worry.

Do you see the beauty in everyday life? The happiness in the ordinary, smallest, and most simple things?

I enjoy watching the bumblebee, working so hard to get inside. Constantly batting its body against the closed window, the invisible obstacle in its way. I want to go outside, but I know there is an invisible obstacle that hinders all humans throughout the world, to move freely outside.

We always seem to long to be on the other side of invisible obstacles.

This is a time of reflecting and reconnecting with the simple and small things in life. These are magical too, and of greatest importance – just like you. Take my hand, we are in this together.

Dear friends,

I have not been active for quite a while. Simply having a moment of soletude, thoughtfulness and recharge for the soul. Life can be overwhelming at points and all there is, is now. Where breathing is becoming. I am settling in my new found old territory shared with gentle souls eager to share this moment in time. Truely blissful. This year will continue at slow pace, rebuilding and regrouping. Shaping tomorrows now.

Naturastipendium / Writer’s scholarship!

So insanely happy to have received a writer’s scholarship. I was sent to the North in Sweden, close to the Norwegian border. The hosts, Bodil and Kenneth, at Jormlien Fjällgård where amazing! Great tips on where to head in the surroundings and wow, was I inspired by the wild untouched nature. I even bumped into a bear one day. I have a lots of photos on instagram from that trip. I wrote, painted and was engaged in wonderful conversations with the locals. Just before the departure I had finished writing on a long project – a novel, so this journey was all about shaking off the old, finding base and from there take off on new writings. So exited to get my claws into something new!

Författarcentrum 50år!

Författarcentrum firar 50år och jag har haft nöjet att få fira det med andra eminenta författare från Norr.

Stadshuset i Sundsvall bjöd på lokal för våra framträdanden och vi avslutade firandet i sann livsnjutaranda på Knaust hotell med trerättersmeny. Knaust har genom historien varit tillhåll för traktens författare och konstnärer. De vackra miljöerna och den goda maten kan man förstå lockar esteter och ordförvaltare.

I samband med Författarcentrums 50års firande släpptes även den 2:a delen i Serien Pocket Poetry for Moments of Despair, Ode to Destiny. Champagnen poppade och skummet flödade.

Release! Ode to Destiny

The feeling when you hold your book in your hand is indescribable!

When I started writing the Series Pocket Poetry for Moments of Despair I was clear about that I wanted to keep them in a small easy-to-carry-format.

People are often afraid of poetry I have noticed. Afraid that they might not understand, find it boring or way too heavy, not in weight but in heart.

Ode to Destiny is like The Silent Songs a small collection of uplifting poems to keep you on track towards the goals of your dreams. I would like to think about them as inspirational poetry. Don’t be afraid, just enjoy!

The release will be held at the Townhall in Sundsvall,
13 September 2017
Most Welcome!

Writing Chronicle

I received a message on my Linked-In. “Would you like to write a chronicle for the magazine Konstperspektiv, (perspective on Art), why don’t you think about it.”

I tell you what, I did not have to think about that at all. I simply returned the message within seconds stating “how many key characters and when is the deadline”

I wrote about the circle of life and art. Nietzsche also gets his voice heard. The result you can find in Nr 3 issued 25th August 2017!

Refugee day 20 Juni

Hej Vänner!

Gillar du Poesi & vill göra skillnad?
20 Juni (Idag) är världsdagen för flyktingar eller world refugee day på initiativ av UNHCR – FNs flyktingorgan. När jag själv ville göra skillnad men saknade medel kom jag på idén att donera poesi.
Så när du köper e-boken går alla intäkter oavkortat till UNHCR!
Tillsammans gör vi skillnad

READERS REVIEW:
“Linda Ghaderis skildring av vägen från slutet till början rymmer både andlighet och djup allmänmänsklig erfarenhet. Att hon i perspektivet av dagens alla utsatta flyktingbarn skänker behållningen från den första e-bokupplagan av The Silent Songs till UNHCR är helt i linje med andan i dikterna.” Jill Hoffmann de Maré

ABOUT THE BOOK:
The Silent Songs is a poetic journey into self, through doubt and despair, searching for the way back home. With these 12 poems you will find the human experience is a road trip for the eternal soul.
Those who cherish timeless mystics, such as Rumi, will most certainly appreciate The Silent Songs.
