African Drums

African masksIt is a new year with a lot of new challenges. This year I decided to try African dance and Yoga.

African dance gives a feeling of going back to the human origin. Through the rhythms of the drums the body almost becomes one with earth. Light candles give the right mood for the lesson in Yoga. The trainer tells us to pray to the sun. Nature religion seems to be this year’s theme for the training institutes. It might be an indication that they can not just compete by promising us the perfect body, but now they also have to cure our stressed souls.

Well, African Dance and Yoga are fun. That is all that matters to me what ever marketing methods that they are using.

The golden bug

GuldbaggenThis week the Swedish Film institute presented the winners of the golden bug, in Swedish called “Guldbaggen”. I once had the opportunity to hold a golden bug. All I can say is that it is a heavy award to hold in your hand. In 2003 I attended a course in Film at the University of Dalarna. The course was located to the Cinema Museum in Säter. The museum had got an award for its efforts. It was this award that I had the opportunity to hold.

I think Arn & Gösta Ekman were the right winners of the people’s award and the award of honour. It is a good development that Sweden can make big productions and Gösta Ekman is one of the best actors we have in this country.
