Arctic Sunrise - Year 4.5 Billion
Life is your art
a Norse View creative director, author and photographer, Mike Koontz.
A lover of life´s inherent beauty found in every aspect of nature and every day life. The progressive science and wonders of our world and universe, it´s perfectly flawed people and animals alike and the way it all evolve.
I marvel at the technological advances that seemingly happens at a continually increasing pace. And I find great joy and peace of mind in the daily grind and science of keeping fit, healthy and active, enjoying the cold outdoors at winter as much as killing it hard, all year round in the gym. Eating healthy food and living a sustainable life while enjoying the pleasures and adventures of all the big and small wonders that is our life in the Anthropocene.
I write fictional books and poetry as well as articles about the factual parts of life, including my daily life and interest in health and fitness, equality, sustainability, science, nature and wildlife. And my Nordic creative photography is of course an ever present and essential part of my creative expression in everything I publish.

I am a simple person in my view on life and I do not believe in greed, or a world where capitalism and unrestrained profit is allowed to be the one governing trait which we all aspire to achieve at the cost of everything else on this planet and life.
I do believe in a just and equal world where we are all allowed to live a healthy life with a decent and fulfilling quality to it. I believe in society needing to show empathy and respect for our individual needs and desires, our wants, joys and pleasures.
In many ways, the future I see is a world more akin to the way of life in the Scandinavian countries, Where you can still create wealth and corporate prosperity without being allowed to forget about the rest of society. I believe in a world made equal according to that model, but made far better with an even higher minimum quality of life for every single person. With a deeper human approach with real equality for all of us. A world where quality of life and health is made a global concern for you and me and the entire planet and universal basic income is the logical daily reality for all of us.
We all deserve and need a healthy and fulfilling life in a world of richness that allows every human being to breathe fresh, unpolluted air, drinking untainted water and eating healthy food and enjoying real education, health care and elderly care.
I believe in every human beings right to live a fulfilling, sustainable, clean and happy life. Where wildlife and nature and our climate is not an after thought in the ruins of greedy corporations and blind, shortsighted politicians.
In our modern global life in the Anthropocene, with our advanced technology and daily scientific progress, our knowledge and insights that continually break new grounds, well, there is no room for more excuses that covers up for greed and plain stupidity anymore. Reality is what it is, and there is room for us all, there is enough for all of us to live a decent life, a sustainable, more caring and healthy and less judgmental life.
There is howver no more room for supporting unsustainable energy producers, selfish people and corporations that sacrifices air, soil, water and life quality all over the world, killing and hurting the health of billions of people all for the sake of ever increasing profit. That time had its time and place and now our world, and you and me, we all deserve a much better and wiser society.
I like to say 'life is your art' and as such we are all allowed to falter but what is important is what we strive to make life today and tomorrow.
It was the year
with the rising
of a brand new day" ]
Out of my, shallow grave
You raise me from the soil,
haunting words that play
on the senses of the
imaginary, With strokes of life
that warms my soul
with your tongue
that is so very skilled and sensuous,
You call me up
To dance beneath
the ever tree
to the right of you
But once I stand,
you raise your head, from down
And while my hand was
thought, to be
yours, to hold, beyond the grave forlorn
In the shadows
Of each silent night, we found a lease
To play, like the moon
wolf that follow close
to each other
two birds, of feathers,
we are now playing tag
as one we rush
what is, perhaps a broken fortress
From within, A hymn, of bursting hearts,
which might, come from down, the beavers
river, curled up dreams like baleful stars
with raging foam of moving oceans
that greet our
last, few steps
like stones and soil, we flow together
From mountains top
That fall, so high, back to the crust
of a thousand sea
Until once more,
Of day, comes to cease
Our lustful games, the sun that passed
Come good morning
To say, goodbye,
You raise me soon
Enough, to dance
We stayed, remain, we fall so slow,
we run with stars we swim,
climb and bleed,
for all eternity
Beneath this seldom tree
