MAKE LOVE NOT WAR
"Conceit, arrogance and egotism are the essentials of patriotism.... Patriotism assumes that our globe is divided into little spots, each one surrounded by an iron gate. Those who had the fortune of being born on some particular spot, consider themselves better, nobler, grander, more intelligent than the living beings inhabiting any other spot. It is, therefore, the duty of everyone living on that chosen spot to fight, kill, and die in the attempt to impose his superiority upon all others"
"All we are saying is give peace a chance..."
I have been stuck on this planet for nearly fortysix(!?) years. So I am really happy to have found h2g2. I live in Gothenburg on the Swedish westcoast. I am the proud mum of two 20 year young radicals, and also proud "plastic-mum" to a 25 year old "plastic-son"
I am working at a primary school as a teacher in, what in Britain I think would be called, an "after school club". That works different in Sweden. After school care is integrated in school, we have a whole day programme, for the youngest children in school. This is an adaptation to the fact that in most families both parents work.
I am intrested in human beings especially young ones -children and teenagers because I appreciate their creative minds and positive approach to life, universe and everything...
I try to see a lot of film, read interesting books, see my friends and take care of my family.
Aspects of life, universe and everything that makes me happy: my life-companion and our kids, a cold starry night at winter, dark chocolade, a bathtub, the Clash, Thåström, Patti Smith, solidarity, good friends and open minds...
These following things really makes me sad and/or angry: chauvinism, injustices, breadcrumbs in my bed, George W Bush, violence, adults that doesn´t take good care of children and when we lose in handball...
Thank you for stopping by, please leave a message!!
