Marie : My lovely blast from the past.

My good old friend from Stockholm, Marie happened to be in town. Long legs, red hair and that witty smile shining brighter than the first time we met. Life turns up and down, so now looks like a promising time for our rising H&M Star.

So we went to a concert on Friday, joined the backstage & R2 till the wee hours. On Saturday, with the coldest weather and worst hangover EVER, we walked around Shibuya, went shopping & reminded the good old days along the water of Södermalm. It's nice to be with someone who fully understands your priorities, concerns & background. Where you came from and where you are heading.

I miss people like Stina, like her, like that. Young women, not afraid to openly show that having a career does not compromise being feminine, fashionable or in love. Girls who are willing to walk 3 steps in front of a man and shit in make up, if they happen not to feel for that. Like Blanca or Yvan. It's not about being woman or man, just a person who dares to break the stereotype. 

There is no such thing as "engineers don't look like X". We are all humans. We are complex entities, a mixture of talent and needs for creative, analytical & physical stuff.

Japan should get over that crap, for good.

Guess I'm gonna have to write a tablet with my wish or I may end up drinking one of these barrels, every night, in despair.

Anyhow, thanks for your sweet visit. We enjoyed it, very much.
