Live to Love the Road.

#travel #morocco #vilostradaComing back home after finishing the @jangabus project has been a pretty odd experience. On the one hand it was so nice to come back to my home, my space, and my plants. But on the other hand I now cannot leave it hah.

This is a very strange time for everyone across the world but it is a shared experience. We are all in it together. People are talking about making the most of this time, doing lots of things - ‘Shakespeare wrote shit loads of plays in quarantine blabla..’ And yeah if this is what you want to do then fuck yeah go for it. However it is also a chance to rest, take stock, contemplate, just be rather than do. The planet is also allowed to just rest and be for a while too which I’m sure she is very happy about.

There’s gonna be some big changes and possibly things will never go back to the way they were. This is a good chance to think about what’s important.

Also I realised I have a lot of pictures of sand đŸȘ

#shopfair #moroccoJag försörjer 250 fattiga och deras familjer. HjÀlp mitt företag att överleva!
I morse lÀmnade jag Marocko bakom mej. Jag lÀmnade en hel hög med freelancande mÀnniskor som inte kommer att ha nÄgon försörjning den nÀrmsta tiden. jag kan inte lÄta mitt företag gÄ i graven. det Àr för mÄnga mÀnnsikor som behöver mej.
Jag har spendarat den sista veckan med att utbilda dem kring immunförsvar och vad de kan göra för att hÄlla sej lugna.
Nu Àr jag pÄ vÀg hem och hoppas bara kunna fortsÀtta handla av dem, stötta dem..
Vi lyfter smÄ entreprenörer som lever pÄ sitt hantverk, produktutvecklar, coachar, marknadsför. För att de sak ha en bra lön. Vi gör det med hjÀrta och sjÀl. FamiljekÀnslan Àr stark.

Jag önskar inge över konsumtion men om du kan o vill handla, dela, berÀtta för era vÀnner om det arbetet vi gör sÄ hjÀlps vi Ät att stÀrka rÀttvis handel och försörja en hel massa mÀnniskor.
Vi ger alltid genersöt av vÄra inkomster det Àr dÀrför vi Àr pÄ plats men nu lovar jag att ge 10% av alla intcÀkter direkt till behövande familjer för att de ska fÄ mat pÄ sina bord.
Tacksam!

LÀs mitt inlÀgg frÄn igÄr hÀr:
Today I did the family round... among the people in my team here. I can calculate about 250 good hearted people here in Marrakech. People that would never steal, never cheat someone, always offer a smile and a kindness, always give more than they get. The people that took my son round in a carossa since he was a baby, the people who stand up for me in conflict, the people who serve us the sweetest tea and ask how my family is. the people that would offer me the roof tops to do yoga in sunset, creating unforgettable memories for visitors, that would almost give away a carpet just to make a client smile. The people that create the most beautiful things of wood, ceramic and art. The once that knows how much i love them and their city.
I had to put my hand into my pocket so many times. Because i know they have nothing.
Those people...
this is what I am here for.

This is why I hope my business will survive.
those people

I bought a round of pomegranate juices for the homeless, giving them some vitamins, I secured the food on the table for some people, in the empty streets of this town.

There is so much fear in the air... near neurosis. young men in face maskes heading for the bus station going back to their mums, with our without a virus. The doors of most of the small souk shops are shut and no cafes are allowed to serve food. The mosques are calling out prayers but no one can go.
.
.
I am now heading for a flight home on Thursday. away from my love. away from my business. to uncertainty. I know... this is why I meditate. My mind is calm, mostly. My heart is breaking for the world as we live in.
I support 250+ craftsmen.
In my mind I can just hope that we in this become so much more conscious about who makes the stuff that we buy. these are people with good hearts, some things fall appart
but damn... may it not be our family.

Souk textile treasures. 
I go each week to simple soak in the beauty of patterns, color and to let my imagination fly free to what they could become. The local Draa women buy 5 m and wrap themselves cleverly in them... me? I made curtains, kaftans, headscarves and blouses. / 😉 Victoria

Your ideas?
