When you sit still and let the path of life unfold in your heart. 
Dear Frigiliana, you gave me and the family all we could ever dream of moving to and living in a Mediterranean/Andalucian village. I carry each park, fiesta, cafe con leche, smiling neighbor and mountain top in my heart forever.

Hello Sweden. This summer we meet again as I return ready to take on new challenges and develop business with you. Thanks to Founder’s Loft who let me inspire and share wisdom to more than 10 new companies that stand ready to conquer the world eager to sell more and develop their dream projects. We were supposed to meet in person in April, but a Zoom lunch had to become the substitute.You impressed me with your clarity and ingenuity in your online channels. Stand tall and take a bow. In my years abroad, I have really missed the power of action, meeting management and the wealth of innovation that Sweden possesses. In so many meetings over the last 7 years, I have been a voluntary Swedish ambassador abroad for these qualities, now I join the home team once more.

By sunset the herd of goats return to the Nomad settlement for shelter for the night. The baby goats reunite with their mamas. The bread is in the making over fire oven, tagine or gamila sizzling on the gas or charcoal. We sit around the fire and share a tea. Life slows down. Together under the starlit sky. Peace. 
Ramadan Mubarak dear friends and enjoy the festivities coming this week.

I asked my talented daughter Maj to interpret into art ”Live to Love the Road”. 
What is your definition, thoughts on the sentence? I need your input for the book with the same title.

The road ahead demands change. This is my definition. What is yours?

Change is looking for the road forward. To change is to follow that road and allow whatever happens to take place. To meet all new challenges with a smile and open mind, knowing that first impression is not always the correct one and most likely spent from an emotional version that may not reflect the reality. Change is powerful and keeps us and me alive. I thrive in this environment and see it as an adventure. This time, change came where I never in a million years would have seen it coming. Change, right now, kicked me in the stomach hard and floored me. My willingness to survive made me realize that the only way change and I will be good friends again is if we collaborate. So let us do this. Together, we are stronger.

Follow the Rain. A few lines from the coming book, Live to Love the Road:

My heart knew, we had come to the end of a chapter, the beginning of a flood. The dam broke and all the water from the rain carried me with it along a hidden stream track, through broken mountains that had been smoothed by water and carried memories of life from times passed. The water carried strength and the end of a search. The rained and the flood cleared the sky.

When I cannot kiss my favourite camels, I reached out to our Frigiliana lizzard during the daily allowed outside walk. Live to Love the Road. Staying sane and safe friends?

My love affair with Morocco began as a dream deep within my heart to be in a world where I could be me. My dreams and curiosity pulled me to head off to world adventure and finding new paths to follow behind each corner. Never really resting, always wanting to know what else there would be to discover.  All ready at age 7, I have my earliest memory of wanting to be an world explorer, a journalist bringing the tales from near and far. At age 14,  I ventured to a summer camp in England for three weeks of adventure. Here I am with my son all ready 15 and my daughter soon 12. The world is locked at the moment, but soon they will define their own dreams and set sail. I can only say. Live to Love the Road.
