In 2011 I started my blog Diary of a Seaturtle as an extension of my musical and poetic writing. Diary of a Seaturtle has become a lovely outlet for my souls journey, uncensored and raw. Please feel free to read and comment on my reflections of the inner and outer world – felt, seen and experienced through me, a seaturtle:
“I travel the world within and without. I’m swimming from ocean to ocean. My religion is laughter. My favourite mantra is: become your dream”.

poem 1049

it’s june 6th.

it’s been such a long time since I posted anything from my creation process.

here is a raw take from my new poem 1049.

 

POEM 1049

MOVING THROUGH THE DAYS
LIKE EVERYTHING’S THE SAME
BUT IT AIN’T NO MORE
NOT SINCE THAT SHOW YOU FOUND ME DOWNTOWN IN NY
DOWNTOWN IN NY
SOMEHOW HEAVEN PUT US ON THE SAME FLIGHT
I JUST NEW THAT FATE HAD PUT AN ANGEL BY MY SIDE

FLY AWAY WITH ME
FLY AWAY WITH ME

JANUARY 1ST
THIS WINTER SEEMED SO COLD
4 MONTHS PASSED AWAY
MARCH APRIL AND MAY NOW JUNE IS HERE TO STAY
NO MATTER HOW I TRY YOUR ANCHOR HAS ME TIED
JUST AN ORDINARY HOUR. LONG AGO. YOU WROTE

1049
1049

I WROTE MY HEART OUT ON THE WHITE CARDS
IT WAS THE SCARIEST SHIT I’VE DONE SO FAR
IT’S NOT THAT YOU HAD TO ANSWER. I JUST WISH YOU HAD
REGARDLESS I WILL LOVE YOU IN BLACK
IT’S NOT TOO LATE AND TIME WILL TELL
WHY YOU TOOK ME BACK FROM LONDON-TOWN

FLY AWAY WITH ME
FLY AWAY WITH ME

I TRIED TO GO SLOW
I KNEW I HAD TO LET YOU GO
BUT YOU KEEP CALLING ME IN YOUR LUCID DREAMS
NO MATTER HOW HARD I FIGHT I CANNOT SURVIVE
SO I SURRENDER
DRAMA AND THE PAST BEATS ME EVERY TIME
YOUR KARMA. YOU SETTLE FOR LESS…
I JUST WANNA SAY

FLY AWAY WITH ME
FLY AWAY WITH ME

YOU’RE SLEEPING THROUGH THE DAYS
I WALK JUST THE SAME
IT LOOKS LIKE ALL IS WELL
BUT EVERYTHING’S A DAZE
IT LOOKS LIKE I’M ALONE
BUSHWICK, MALMÖ, STOCKHOLM
NU ÄR DET NÅGON ANNAN SOM TRYCKER

We are almost at the end of a 9-year-cycle.

For me, being born in 1980, this is the 4th one coming full circle…

As I was crying last night, going through this past year – which has been one of the toughest ever in so many ways, yet a wonderful magical one – I found myself lost between gratitude and hopelessness…

These last few days it’s like I’ve re-lived everything that has happened, not only this past year, but this whole 9-year-cycle, in a fast-forward-way. One moment super happy, the next one immersed in sorrow…

The conclusion, if any, is that it all needs to go through the system fully, so it can evaporate and resolve, so I have space for the new. But, it also reminds me that I am so much more in contact with how I feel these days, than I was 18 years ago, or even 9 years ago. That is such a treasure!

Through Meisner-technique, yoga, snowboard, surf, theta-healing, becoming a silversmith, painting, playing with my god-children, living in different cultures etc, I have met myself, seen myself, experienced myself more fully. For that I am forever grateful.  I feel free.

I’ve practiced to dare more, to be courageous, to go with the feeling all til the end and sit with and experience whatever’s there… anger, happiness, curiouity, sadness, resentment, joy, fear… the list is endless and I will keep on keeping on until the end… learning more with every breath and through whatever is mirroring me – people, art, mother nature…

For so many years I was this strong person that could do everything, deal with anything, overcome anything, build up anything, learn everything… I still am, it’s just that today, I have merged that with my super sensitivity more. I trust my intuition, I dare to feel along the way, to surround myself with what makes my heart sing.

I know now, when things feel good, when I’m scared of the unknown but should keep going, when I am not supposed to be somewhere or stop doing something that doesn’t serve me or anyone else anymore…

My soul, spirit, essence, has grown so strong, that whenever I try to go against it, my body resists… that’s why I can move from NY to Stockholm within 5 days… There is a knowing and trust that is physical AND spiritual at the same time… the IS-ness, whether one likes it or not, feels uncomfortable with it or not – IS there! I’ve learnt that surrender and acceptance is key for me…

I truly know and trust on a whole new level now. That trust is a gift. That knowing an asset. They´re treasures. Something magical that cannot be explained. I have lived, I’ve gained these treasures through everything that I cry and laugh about, through everything that has hurt me, everything that has filled me with love… That’s why I cry and laugh within an instant these days…

As we have the New Moon tonight and as we step into the 1 of a new cycle (next year 2+0+1+7 = 1 + 0 = 1), I made a list last night, of  big and small things, that I wish for my in life. Things that I wish to focus upon for the start of this next 9-year-cycle….

As I read through the list, I realized that there was a common thread, a seed, a core value underneath everything… The quote from Nayyiirah Waheed above, reflects that…

I wish to meet more people on the bridge… people that dare to welcome the unknown, even if it means walking slow short steps with tears in their eyes, they’re still willing to keep going… because there is a knowing and a trust within, playing like a gentle smile upon their face and their eyes sparkle of curiousity and love glitters in their eyes…

2017.

I pray.

May this be the year.

May this 9-year-cycle be laid upon a foundation of extraordinary love.

welcome to “DDsthlm”

April 29th was the opening day for my little haven “DesiréeDesignSTockHoLM”! I can’t believe I finally have a space for everything I love to do!! After all these years living across the world in suitcases and temporary places, it feels amazing to have all my things under the same roof! I can paint, make music, practice yoga, make jewelry, have workshops and lectures, throw events…pretty much do anything I want, AND what people in the community want! cause that’s really what I hope DDsthlm to be: a creative center for people that gravitate towards art, wisdom, love, yoga, design, freedom, music, abundance, curiosity, healing, authenticity… a space for all ages to cultivate creativity, raise awareness, share, to be who we are to the fullest extent in a beautiful way.

Welcome to the art space / studio www.ddsthlm.com  @ Allhelgonagatan 6 in skanstull, Stockholm!
