Three Weeks

Three Weeks

 

It’s been three weeks since the horror
Three weeks since five people lost their lives
For most of us life’s gone back to normal
For most of us, but not all

So here’s to us, the lucky ones still living
May we all grow old and grey and blessed with joy
May our days be filled with loving and with laughter
May our dreams come true and may we always thrive

And to the ones who perished, may you rest in peace
To your families and friends, strength and healing
May time do its work and help to comfort
May your hearts be made whole once again

And to the one who carried out this act
To the ones who thought it was ok
I pray the Devil will not find you, may God have mercy on your souls
And I hope there is no such place as Hell

And to all the other people out there suffering
May you find a way to shelter and to safety
May your lives be saved from misery and pain
May your situation miraculously change

It’s been three weeks since the horror
Three weeks since five people lost their lives
For most of us life’s gone back to normal
For most of us, but not all
For most of us

The Rosenhill saga continues!

The Rosenhill saga continues!

by Eva Centergren

Rosenhill is a very special place located on the outskirts of Stockholm, Sweden, on an island called Ekerö. Rosenhills Trädgård is an organic farm and a cider mill where you can either bring your own apples or pick them there. They produce honey; there’s a café which serves farm-fresh food cooked on location; a bar with organic beer & wine; pigs, chickens and other livestock; hammocks for swaying in, and an incredible vibe and natural surroundings. Cabins for rental…WWOOFers who volunteer for room & board, and then of course the amazing family Sillén who run Rosenhill. Lars and his beautiful yet regretfully late wife Emilia started off selling veggies in Hötorget, in central Sthlm, but eventually decided they would create something where people would come to them instead. The dream came true and many years later, Rosenhill is really paradise-like and very vibrant during the summers. Sundays is a drive-in flea market for anyone who wants to sell or buy…and there’s even a “free shop” where you can give/take things instead of dealing with money. : )

We will play at 5 pm, it’s family-friendly, single-friendly, whatever. DJ after the other acts. With Hanna Francis!

Here’s a video which gives a taste of the feeling of the Harvest Fest and the place by Félix Kjellberg-Hill (who happens to be the brain behind this very website):

Konsert på Waterfront drog in över 60,000 kr till UNHCR:s… – Diipak Music Productions

The concert at Waterfront was a success – over 7,000 dollars were raised to aid the UNHCR’s work for refugees in Sweden! It was a high-quality and varied concert with everything from Classical to a cappella covers by Gothenburg group Solala to bearded Indie rock by Billy Momo to yours truly. ; ) Big shout-out to Isabelle Andö who organized the whole thing!

VIDEO FOOTAGE FROM CONCERT AVAILABLE SOON!
