Short story ( One Evening Bed time read)
This is one of the many short stories that people tell each other countless of times in various of ways.
And like some of those fictional stories, this one also happens to be based on actual every day event that took place in Sweden, the summer of 1850.

Like many other such events, real or imaginary, it might change a tiny bit with each generation re telling it in their very own way (this particular event was for instance once made famous as a Swedish children's song, 'Mors lilla Olle', by Alice Tegner, as well as a poem by Wilhelm von Braun).
But at its core I am sure its every iteration remain quite faithful towards what actually happened that summers day when the little boy named Olle befriended a wild Brown Bear and her two little cubs deep inside that old Swedish forest.

Enjoy this tale that sprung forth the untamed home of Norse Vikings.

Once upon



[in a foresty


Norse kingdom]





Liten pilt i fjällskog gick:
Rosig kind och änglablick,
Munnen röd som tufvans bär…
»Kors! hvad jag är ensam här!» — tänkte gossen.

Och han stultade så späd
Mellan höga, mörka träd:
Moder hans i sätern var —
»Här är jag min egen karl» — tänkte gossen.

Svarta djur nu kommo två,
Lufsandes, dit han sågs gå:
Stora, grymma, lurfviga —
»Jag fick sällskap, det var bra!» — tänkte gossen.

»Men hvad är det för slags djur?
Den där stora tycks mig sur…
Om jag kunde fråga mor! —
Men det måste vara kor» — tänkte gossen.







And so it was that, one sleepy Summers day, that little Olle and his older sister Sara raced and played tag and hide and seek with each other. And before you knew it, their mothers home, and safe haven, was far away and before them lay, a sprouting, wild creek that lingered through the luminous landscape.

It´s water washed in a slow and gentle way over the stony bed and protruding rocks, leafs floated by, and in the air they could hear the buzzing sound of dragon flies and bees.
And there they lay looking down from a fallen tree trunk that stretched out over the creek, at the fish and frogs that jumped, chirped, and swimmed their way through the cold water that raced down from the ever snowy northern Swedish mountains, down towards the flatter lands and villages.









The children was all rosy tired from their games and fun and equal parts exhilarated and happy, until, all of a sudden, a deer came jumping through the trees and bushes, and with a giant leap it crossed the creek and ran up over to the other side. With water splashing behind it´s petite, yet agile frame, it set off in a wild, wild hunt.

The surprised siblings laughed at it all, and then.
Behind them and to the right, a momma bear, big and brown, came out of the trees, and with her, two little cubs.
They all froze up, children, bear cubs and momma bear. And with them, the frogs and fish, even the dragon flies, they all went silent, and no one moved as time itself seemed to slow down and freeze.

Until, the silence shattered when the older sister gave up an exasperated sound,











'it´s a MOMMA bear, run Olle, run!'.


But Olle calmly looked at the three animals and thought to himself,
"well, they don´t look dangerous at all to me, and for all I know they could be wild mountain cows, yep, I am sure of it, because they do look like really big, brown and furry cows, and my sister is never right about anything, even our mother says so. And now that Sara ran back home, at least I have good company, and they will be my bestest friends!."












































Told



[a dream


so Vivid]





Och han gick dem glad emot,
Såg ej ögats mörka hot,
Såg ej hur de grina’ till —
»Jag med dem nu leka vill» — tänkte gossen.

Och emot den skarpa tand
Sträckte pilten liten hand:
Djuret lyfte då sin ram …
»Kors, hvad du är snäll och tam!» — sade gossen.

Ett af djuren unge är,
Denne bjuder nu han bär
Ur sin skäppa: ungen åt —
»Ser man bara, det går åt» — sade gossen.

Modern strax drog klorna in,
Ned hon tryckte ungen sin,
Lade, stilla, sig framför —
»Vänta, jag dig sällskap gör!» — sade gossen.










And as such, with a smile of purest joy in heart and face, little Olle entirely unafraid with a child's honest, big soul and eyes and excitement of meeting new and always friendly animals, approached the three bears with hands outstretched.

The big momma bear at first looked at him, surprised to see a pesky man child that did not run away (they always ran away, screaming and shouting, unless they where big bad adults with guns and spears - oh how she hated those nasty ones), . And then, as he continued to daringly approach, she gave up a low, vibrating bear growl that she knew would resonate through the trees, the water, and the ground itself, vibrate and be both heard and felt - as she growled her hymn of warning, she stood up on her hind legs and with her biggest bad ass bear voice she growled her impressive bear song warning








-
"go away little man. Dont you know, if you hurt my little ones I will tear your arms off and sell you to the trolls"


But to little Olle it sounded so much fun, the way the strange cow was speaking to him. He hadnt learned the ways of fear that clouded most adults life´s and as such, to him the growl of bears did not sound frightening at all.
Instead, Olle could see the gentle soul inside the momma bear and he knew she was, like all animals, a friend to win with kindness and fun.









"here he said", and as he held out his hand the little cubs could see and smell, the big, bold blueberries that he held inside his palm, and as his mother raised her paw, wanting to protect her own, the little cubs dashed out and happily started to eat out of Olles palm, for they too had not learned to fear the evil that some frightened men sometimes do.

"Oh my gosh, you eat even faster then i do" - Olle was bubbling with laughter by now as the two little brown bears muzzled him, puffed, and then tipped him over with a combined effort so he ended up on the ground.
Seeing how the strange little man was laughing his little boy heart out while feeding her two precious cubs with delicious and perfectly ripe blueberries the momma bear calmed down and soon she laid down on the ground to keep her two babies and their strange new friend company.









Momma bear of course knew that where there where small boys and girls, their dangerous parents where sure to follow, so she kept an watchful mind at the surrounding forest.




































always



[as real as flesh]





Han på marken nu så säll
Kastar sig; mot moderns fäll
Lutar hufvudet han där —
»Kors! så mjukt jag ligger här!» — sade gossen.

Och han klappade och slog,
Och han lekte, och han drog
Uti djurets päls, så tjock —
»Du bra tålig är ändock!» — sade gossen.

Slutligen af leken trött
Somnar liten pilt, så sött.
Nalle fromt på honom såg. —
Att i mammas knä han låg — drömde gossen.

Snart han väckes af ett skri:
Djuren flydde — allt förbi. ..
»Store Gud! du lefver än?»

»Mamma! du skrämt bort min vän» — klagar gossen.














A while after Olle noticed how the momma bear was lying down he hurled himself at her big body of fur, Olle burried himself head first and straight into her tummy and said

"OOOH - this is perfect, you are so soft and furry, you guys are the best cows ever",









Olle petted the bears fur with his hands and fingers, and soon he played and climbed all over the big momma bear together with the two little brown bear cubs. They tumbled over her big, strong body, they jumped and played last man standing.
Hours later, both the little child and the two cubs had exhausted all of their energy, and as the silence fell, soon they slumbered so sweet together.
One big bear in happy, content silence guarding them all as they lay like kittens all over each other.
But before you knew it, Olle and his friends was abruptly awoken by a scream, his dream shattered as he was climbing a tree so tall, and with him in front of him out on the branches was his new friends, the furry cows.
But his mothers terrifying scream brought him out of the warm pleasantness of their shared dream, and as he opened his eyes he could see the three bears already heading off in to the forest.
The vigilant momma bear knowing full well that less tolerant humans had arrived, and so she brought her little babies back in to the safeness of the black forest.









"Oh my god, you are alive, I thought the bear had killed you"


"Mother!, you scared my friends!" Olle looked at her in disbelief, my god, his mother could be so daft he thought.
She had chased his bestest friends away.

And so the saga ends in poem and songs, with a child so pouty.





































through time



[and pages


their Legend

was found]





But life, of course, did not end there with the end of that short childrens like fairy tale. No life continued and over time Olle became a well travelled adult, like so many Scandinavians had done before him he set forth to venture across the oceans.
Sailing on Viking long ships across the globe, he too set sail.








He travelled first to Norway and from there to the 'new land' on the other side of the ocean.
He encountered strange things, met new friends and uncovered lands and adventures on his travels.









Jon Ersson , which was Olles real name, never forgot about his wild animal friends, the furry 'cows' as he would smiling call his bear family, he once had met in that forest, deep inside the ancient realms of Sweden.
And yes, as he grew up he of course came to understand that the cows had in fact been a family of Scandinavian Brown bears. But he still found laughter in calling them his cow family.








Often he wondered what had happened to them, and sometimes he told his children, his wife ( Elia Simonsson ) and friends about them in between the daily chores on their American farm.
His child hood adventure had gifted him with the insight of children, and never would he ever again feel scared of the dark forests and all it´s animals that lived within them, unlike so many other frightened adults his life was made forever richer.









Until, one day, his wife set sail too, venturing back to their native Sweden and that ever growing forest where people still spoke of a family of bears that once had adopted a little child.
So perhaps, one day I will tell you all about her own adventures and how it came to be that she too came to know the very same family of bears (yes, she too got to be their friend).

But before I let you go.
Olle, or perhaps, we should end by calling him by his real name, Jon Ersson was born in 1848, a father of 9 kids. Jon died, one cold winters day, December 14th 1887 at the young age of 38.







He died however, like a Viking, on the shores of new land, expanding his frontiers and understanding of life and Earth, instead of limiting.


And now, as a Norse adventurer in soul and life, I will set this story free to sail the seven seas.
The fjords of Northern men and women, to fly across the skies of all our dreams.
But instead of a funeral pyre set loose upon Norse waters, I will set you free on tides of dreams and life with a poem of mine.









Sweet Dreamscapes
Tonight we dream and travel



Liar liar
on the wall
A spider climbed
its web of words
towards the golden tassels

So tell me now
What do you see, what do you crave
and elucidate
when darkly dearest Sandman
from sheltered moons
and starry night

takes us to forever dream
and silent travel
Caught, set free

Is that frost upon your breath?
Perhaps
A dragon gnarly hides inside your chest

unfolding
dreams are yours
to walk
sing and hymn

the whispers
whispers
In the dark

i travel
Like a flock of ravens
and the shooting star
towards, the realms uncharted
I gladly hurl
to slay the demons
of unknown tides
and whitest waters

    The Gateway Earth Chaebol
    A 2028AD stand alone sci-fi short story.



    'The Musk colony' as it was informally called could right now be thought of as a real but still very challenged success simply because the fleet had actually managed to reach their destination and somewhat to his own surprise, the entire fleet was still operational, bruised but functional.
    And considering how space travel and logistics had been prone to so many errors in the decades leading up to their unparalleled launch, the fact that they were all here, it was nothing but amazing. Taken for granted by the crew, by now at least, but still nothing but amazing.

    And while it was true, that they still had not actually put any human feet on the ground. Or even landed a single ship or UAV.
    We had reached our destination.

    They came marching in at dawn, shoulder to shoulder they formed long winding columns of wordless but well-armed soldiers in gleaming dark armor that stretched as long as the eye could see. 500 men passed us by with the rising sun painting the light of this new day behind their backs. But this would not be a day of peaceful tranquility under the light of the rising sun, instead, the sun rose up from beneath the horizon as the herald of war and death in what we all knew would turn out be just another day in their relentless campaign.

    150 million health related issues in one year.
    The Science of healthy living.



    Almost 7 million dead people around the world in one single year ( 2015 ), due to smoking.
    Making it account for 11.5% of worldwide deaths during 2015.
    Out of the roughly 7 million dead people, 52.2% lived in four countries, China, India, the USA, and Russia.

    13 countries, Australia, Brazil, China, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Iceland, Kenya, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the USA have showed significant year-to-year rates of decline of smoking between 1990 and 2015.

    But while an increasingly lower percentage of the global population keep up with the filthy and unhealthy habit of smoking, as time goes by due to our global population increase the total number of smokers is still going up, and it is now close to 1 billion people!.

    A life of fitness is a game of chess.
    The Science of healthy living.



    When it comes down to health and fitness, and the cerebral battlefield of chess the simple truth is that they are very much alike.
    There are no unearthly and illogical surprises waiting in the dark of night that will upend and change the actual fabric of the landscape.
    Your opponent can not cast fiery magic and summon demons from the netherworld to do their bidding.
    Instead what we have is a beautifully defined field of known and still developing, yet for now, unknown for you and me facts and variables, and the vast amount of personal choices those known, but evolving facts allows us to make.

    And at every step of that personal journey, chess and fitness will leave you standing as the sole commander, at a vast field made up of pure facts and deductive knowledge and the cause and consequences that every single choice will give birth to.

  • Health & Fitness: The unhealthy reality of the MMA style weight cut. A BBC documentary.

    Quality time needed: 7 minutes


    The Unhealthy Practice of MMA weight cutting
    The Science of a Healthy Life



    For most people getting a bit more fit, and healthy by eating cleaner food and less calories and working out more is a great life improving choice.
    And for most, that will lead to health improving reductions in unhealthy body fat levels and body weight. But as we previously talked about in another article, when you are already in shape, rocking a fit and toned body, eating healthy amounts of healthy food, doing weights and cardio, there comes a limit where dropping even more in body weight and body fat becomes damaging and unhealthy instead of health and fitness improving.

    And beyond that basic reality, you have the insanity of MMA and Boxing weight cuts that far to many pro fighters go through just so they can fight in a weight class that they are to athletic and big to actually be fighting in.
    I am saying that because MMA style weight cutting is not something that anyone interested in health and fitness should ever do.
    Period.

    Neither should pro fighters in my own opinion. In a ideal world you would be the only one doing MMA style weight cuts, allowing you to fight people 20 to 30 lbs smaller than you, with much shorter leg and arm reach, 20+lbs less muscle mass and all the disadvantage that would give them in strength, endurance, strike impact and absorption.
    But you see, when every other fighter do the same weight cut, no one benefits, and everybody suffers from the exact same detrimental and unhealthy exhaustion that MMA style weight cuts are. With less fitness come fight night and potentially worse health for the long haul as the only real result.

  • Health & Fitness: Daily Milk, Fruit and Vegetable consumption, in relation to your mortality rate and health.

    Quality time needed: 10 minutes


    Dairy for the fit and healthy guidelines
    The Science of a Healthy Life



    Time and science continually march forward, and that is a thing of utmost beauty. But that simple fact also requires all of us to keep an open mind towards the way we do our own fit and healthy life so that we can continually adapt and improve as we uncover new layers of scientifically established health and fitness knowledge, and at times, accept that new health and fitness science-based knowledge might force us to change direction and toss out old established "truths".

    So today we find ourselves in a brave new world where a comprehensive Swedish study covering the health impact of daily dairy and fruit consumption ended up giving us so much new scientifically based knowledge about our health and food choices that the time has come to update our "dairy for the fit and healthy guidelines".

    Organic and sugar-free yogurt is still with us, while milk is completely tossed to the side, yes even lactose-free milk gets the boot out my door.
    Why you might ask?
    Well, the answer is simply put science baby, adapt or die :).

    Milk is as far as we understand it right now causing real health issues over time that simply do not happen when you consume sugar-free yogurt or no dairy at all.
    This Swedish study involved close to 200 000 people, and the accumulated data over several years indicates that a high milk consumption shortens individuals life span through increased oxidative stress and inflammation caused by that daily milk consumption.
    And as such milk has to go since yogurt provides all the same high-quality nutrition as milk and thus, all the benefits of dairy can be met through organic, sugar-free yogurt without risking the by now, strongly implicated long-term health issues associated with drinking milk.

    Air Pollution and our health
    The factual Science of a Healthy Life, updated with WHO data, march 2017



    Science continually spits out more reasons in a never ending string as to why anyone interested in their own health and body should also be caring for a sustainable society and world.
    As if it is not already bad enough with modern day life´s annoying sidekick, air pollution, causing cancer, asthma and respiratory diseases and crazy smog in a growing number of cities. We can now add dementia to the list of unpleasant and unhealthy effects that life in any unsustainable society will cause through air pollution.


    Swedish researchers at Umeå University have uncovered compelling evidence for a direct link between air pollution and dementia. The run down is that if you happen to live in an area that leaves you exposed to air pollution you will run a 40 percent greater risk of developing Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia compared to if you would have chosen to live in a city with healthier air and environment.

    UHD book reading video TBA
    Short story ( coffee break bite )
    The legend of the stone cutter is often thought of as a Japanese folktale. But there are also seeds of pagan Europe and other parts of Asia in its many origins and crossroads.

    It weaves the tale of a poor man, plagued with unhappiness for his own lot in life. This man worked as a highly skilled but poorly paid stonecutter, and one day he simply came to the conclusion that enough was enough and that he deserved so much more than who he was. His wish for transformative change came to be through the aid of a supernatural being, and with that his greedy appetite for a world of ever more was awoken, until one day he had come full circle and reached a state of peace with himself.
    Written by no one, and everyone.
    Before this slightly altered version, the German authors Brothers Grimm put their thoughts to the pen, but you also had the Scottish author Andrew Lang writing his very own version of the stone cutter. And there have been countless of Asian authors and Nordic ones throughout history, before and after the Brothers Grimm. And as such, I am sure, many others that told their own version of this old folktale, because like the wind, this is an ageless story about life and man, and like the wind I am sure that it will both transform and stay the same for thousands of years to come.

  • Healthy living: When protein face off with protein, what comes out on top? Red meat, plants, nuts, dairy?. And how will it impact health, strength and even the effects of old age.

    Quality time needed: 6 minutes


    Meat vs Plant when Protein gets to battle Protein & age.
    The Science of a healthy Life



    In a recently published study, we got to take a pretty comprehensive look at nearly 3,000 men and women all aged between 19 and 72.
    The study participants complete protein intake as well as all the various protein and food sources they consumed was measured. Including various dairy products, red meat and the healthier fish & chicken and plant-based protein sources. Beyond that the study also made sure to measure each participants lean muscle mass, their bone density, and individual strength.

    The takeaway?.
    When looking at the complete study, it was evident ( and to no surprise ) that the less protein you consumed the lower amount of muscle mass and strength. But to the surprise of some, the type of protein each person favored did not have any impact on their strength and musculoskeletal health, and there were no differences based on gender or age group.

    So keep active, eat healthy and make sure to include enough protein, and yeah, skip that red meat based protein right away because it provides zero health and fitness benefit for anyone.

    Quality time needed: 7 minutes


    On continuous gusts of solar wind mixed with terrestrial ions Earth shower the moon with earthborn oxygen
    The Science of Life



    Outside our blue wonders shielded atmosphere, the coldness of space is filled with the burning solar wind. The dust and speckles of stars, radiation, vacuum and alien stuff like dark matter and gigantic black holes. It is a marvel of glorious destruction and life that continuously mix and merge outside our calm home, organic chaos tearing down and building new life things across the vastness of time and our Universe.

    And amongst it all, somehow, each month, Earth fires up its magnetic shields as we position ourselves between the sun and the moon, and for five whole day´s we Earthlings shower our cute little friend with Earthbound oxygen and organic matter.
    In other words, we colonize and shape the very fabric of the alien entity we call the moon with Earthborn biological life and air, organic matter traveling from our blue marble all the way to the moon through the dark void on the winds of the sun.
