15th of November Blog update

My ParisI believe many of us are trying to come to terms with the week gone by. It started as an ordinary week, but by the end of it we all have been brutally reminded of the anger and cruelty in our world. I am not trying to say these things don’t happen all the time, and many of them end up just being a small news story. But just because it was on our door step, it feels some how closer and more real. But no one can deny the scale of these attacks in Paris.

I have been to France many times, and love the country. I know French people are resilient, and they will get through this horrendous tragedy. But right now my thoughts are with the people in France.

It somehow feels wrong to be writing about my own life today. A lot of things happened during the week, and many I have documented in vlogs that will be out in the next few days. So I hope it is ok with you guys that I keep this weeks blog update short. What we all learned this week is not something I want to write about today. I will in time, but right now I will leave you all with this weeks blog posts and a picture on this page, which is one of my memories from Paris. My heart is broken, but it will heal.

This weeks song “Working Man” and the quite heavy blog post talks about the greed in our world today. Please check it out, share and grab a download copy from my Bandcamp page:
