Have we got life ALL wrong?
This morning I got this little video in my inbox – I have seen it several times before, and I adore it each time, so today I wanted to share it with you.
And it inspired me to write a new blogpost
This is a sweet and short 2 minutes watch about music and life or shall I say, The Meaning of Life

When I was a child, I was very much into books, art, music and creativity. I loved to read, draw, paint and listen to music.
And I come from a middleclass background where everyone was urged to get an education and find a safe and secure job. I was a good student, but at that time I did not know what I wanted to be/do in my life.
