True Blood

Tonight in the U.S. starts season four of my favorite TV-sehttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifries True Blood. I love the books by Charlaine Harris and i cant wait for the next one to come out in the stores. But in the meantime I'll enjoy watching True Blood on TV ;P



In this season we will see more about the fairies. So I give you an early photo of me with elvish inspiration. I have designed and sewn (and even woven fabric in the mantle) all the clothes by myself.

Session: Elven forest.
The photo was shot in connection with my exhibition for my bachelor's degree in textile science. I was specializing myself in the ancient fabrics focused on archeology.

Last night

I do not understand what's wrong. But I am completely worn out and tired. Well, sure I'm a bit cold and I try to repress it. But still, it feels like i could fall asleep standing. Except for the pain, that keeps me awake.
Hope i feel better to morrow so i can be nice to people on the midsummer evening.

Summer solstice

In the Northern Hemisphere it is summer solstice today.
June 20-21 is a very important day for our planet and its relationship with the sun.

The summer solstice, Midsommardagen which occurs in connection with a weekend in the same week as the Summer solstice occurs (on Friday we have a great party with friends and family). It is a major holiday in Sweden and is considered even more important than Christmas. The Swedish celebrate this holiday with dancing, maypoles, folk music and feasting that lasts for a week. Summer solstice is also now a celebration of the Christian saint, Saint John the Baptist, but in Sweden, the holiday maintains much of its pagan roots.

Solstice derives from a combination of Latin words meaning "sun" + "to stand still." As the days lengthen, the sun rises higher and higher until it seems to stand still in the sky.



The summer solstice occurs exactly when the Earth's and the moon's axial tilt is most inclined towards the sun, at its maximum of 23° 26'. Though the summer solstice is an instant in time, the term is also colloquially used like Midsummer to refer to the day on which it occurs.
The summer solstice occurs in June in the Northern Hemisphere. The Sun reaches its highest position in the sky on the day of the summer solstice. However, between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn, the highest sun position does not occur at the summer solstice, since the sun reaches the zenith here and it does so at different times of the year depending on the latitude of the observer. Depending on the shift of the calendar, the summer solstice occurs some time between June 20 and June 21 in the Northern Hemisphere.http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif
Worldwide, interpretation of the event has varied among cultures, but most have held a recognition of sign of the fertility, involving holidays, festivals, gatherings, rituals or other celebrations around that time.

A mid-summer love blessing spell for you.

Unedited

Howdy!
Today I wanned to show you an unedited photo of me from the cave. There will be some edited images from this session in the blog in this fall (when I get time to work with the images).
It was a cold, dark and damp cave where the water was dripping from time to time. One of the cold drops hit me right in the butt when I crawling in there, and not to fall into any of the holes that were in the cave I had to stand completely still and feel the cold water flowing along the bottom. Brrr!!! Not the best feeling i have had.
Today (the day after the shot / Sunday) I still smell bad from the trapped cave. And i could not get the dirt of my body by showering for 30 minutes.
Nice,ha? A smelly model ;-P

But I love shoting this session, I love to act when I make a session. And this is truly a different kind of nude- fine art session.
It is an honor to be working with photographer Jorgen Storm who always got the funniest ideas for a photoshot.

Vegetarian/Vegan, and proud!!!

For 1 1 / 2 weeks ago I was food poisoned, I have since had problems with abdominal pains. The stomach swells up and it hurts like hell. But i guess that I should be happy it is not ehec. As a vegetarian/Vegan I get to hear a lot about how dangerous it is to eat vegetables at this time.

EHEC (Escherichia coli) produces a toxin (poison) that is responsible for many of the symptoms of the disease symptoms.
Ruminants, particularly cattle, is the reservoir for VTEC. The infection can be spread through contact with these animals or with their manure, but also through contaminated food and water. Outbreaks have been described from many different types of foods, raw milk, unpasteurized apple cider, yogurt, lettuce, salami, salami, roast beef and hamburgers.
People have also become sick after outdoor in contaminated water or from drinking contaminated municipal water. Although infection from person to person occurs.
The incubation period is usually three to four days (one to eight days).

Often the disease begins with abdominal cramps and diarrhea, but rarely fever. Nausea and vomiting may occur. After two to three days the diarrhea can become blood-streaked. The disease normally resolves within a week. In approximately five percent of patients (especially children under five years old) developed HUS (Hemolytic-uremic syndrome), which occurs within two to 14 days. The kidney´s get damage with renal failure as a result. The blood platelets, can sink so low that bleeding occurs. HUS often requires intensive care and dialysis.

In 2011, there have been a major outbreak in northern Germany with a rare variant, EHEC 104th. The outbreak has also resulted in some cases among returning tourists from several European countries. Of those infected has significantly more than expected suffered from severe symptoms.
In Germany, more than 2,000 cases reported EHEC and nearly 700 cases of HUS and about 20 death are reported. In Sweden about fifty people became ill, of which about one-third have developed the complication of HUS and one died.

The source of infection is suspected to be raw vegetables, investigation underway. BUT...

EU's gigantic animal farms provide manure-leakage and damage Ehec- bacteria on vegetables.
Common garden fertilizers can be infected by EHEC bacteria. This is according to researchers at the National Veterinary Institute SVA, Uppsala, which is now urging people to be careful when handling cow fertilized earth.

So I ask myself. Is it so bad to be a vegetarian, if the animal farms make people sick??? I think the blame is to see in the farming politics.
In my opinion, people should eat less meat and make sure to buy meat from farms where animals are known to non-mainstream products.


Vegetarian sausage works quite well :-)
