If I woke up, completely healthy?
‘What would I do
if I woke up one morning
The words are Kristian Gidlund’s, the drummer from Sugarplum Fairy, the poet, blogger and author of ‘I kroppen min’, the beautiful young man that documented his last journey in life, battling incurable cancer.
The words are so piercing. So real.
The things we take for granted….
I read his book in three days, tears streaming down my face, snow falling outside my window. Beautifully written in Swedish language, it brings so much perspective and presence. It talks of the big things. Life. Death. And everything in between.
Confronted with this reality, everything else fades away.
I want to call my close ones and tell them I love them. I want to speak the truth. I want to fall in love. I want to travel the world. I want to feel at home. I want to laugh until I cry and cry because of sheer beauty. I want to listen to music real loud and run as fast as I can. I want to hurt and heal. I want to write. I want to let go. I want to be brave. I want to be good.
Little things like that.
