A Daily Doze of Vitamin H

During this time with Coronavirus— “keep distance”, has it been no possibility for our two legged clients to visit our horses. But, they have all said the same thing.

They noticed their inner stress level gone up, their thoughts are flying everywhere. They cannot wait until they are allowed to meet the horses again. Their pulse slows down, and it’s like the thoughts suddenly disappears. One woman ones said after 5 minutes together with the horse, “ I feel like I can breathe now!”

Here in Germany in the beautiful Nature area, have we seen a lot of people walking, (hiking)

However, families that bike rides together has been amazing to see. It’s lovely to see so many families (separately) together out in the nature. They stop and looks at the horses. I can see the parents are pointing and talking while the kids listens. Quiet and relaxing!

The families worry of course, but like one woman said, “We try to learn from the horses to stay grounded and in the moment!”

That’s Amore!

Big Mamma — one of Todays Guest Speakers

Standing on a scene in front of a lot of people, could be a little nerve tickling. But it went quickly over to joy, especially when the audience laughed, and I could see their faces. Loved it.

Today, I had another online presentation/lecture and it is/was a positive challenge. I just love that so many people understand that most of us are beginners with all the new meeting rooms. It is a little bumpy to begin—

I was lucky and happy, to have my 12-year old son by my side supporting me. To start with, I couldn’t find the mic nor the video buttons, then how to attach the presentation so every one could see it from their computers— I love you Max—

Max also had to run after me with the iBook in his hands, since I had six different turtles as my guests. They were waiting in different rooms to participate. And of course our six dogs were following me wondering what the heck was going on.

The big challenge for me, was that I felt like I was speaking to myself. It had the same feeling as when I attended radio interviews— But overall, it was great, being able to talk about my passion, and sharing my experiences from different animals in different countries.

That’s what I call Amore.

A huge Thank You, to everyone that joined today.

Laying in the grass while Julia is eating. Suddenly, she just stopped and stood there, quiet and nice.

I looked up, and there, a sweet flower was hanging out from her mouth.

It was so peaceful and amazing. I don’t want this moment to end! That’s Amore!

Challenging my Passion and Fear by Being On Line

Challenge of the day! Nervous 🌸

When you cannot meet your audience in person, you speak on line. 🦋

What a great experience today, very different, however, wonderful. Normally, I meet my audience in person. But right now, not much is normal anymore, so we have to make things differently. And that can be a good thing.

The topic was about being an author, and the importance of journaling

When I grew up we called it keeping a diary. It is a place for your thoughts and feelings. It’s a kind of method you use, depending on your mood, and needs at the time (and personality) To be able to feel honest, and not judged.

Your dreams, fears, goals, experiences are important.

What I always love is, we suddenly start to speak about other topics, like bullies, and having reading difficulties etc. (Growing up)Fears and wrong beliefs about yourself.

And I loved their brave questions! I had to be brutal honest in my answers. To share about my own difficulties and fears growing up.


Thank you 5th graders, for listening, but also sharing about your own experiences. And a special thank you to their wonderful teacher. 🦋

That’s Amore

The Sound under a Tree

Can you imagine the sound from all the bumble bees?

This morning I took my coffee, and went down to this magnificent tree in our garden. When the children were very small, they used to call this tree “the banana tree” Max, even tried to eat one of the yellow flowers.

The stillness at this moment, only birds and bumble bees. A cat walks by, slowly on his way home, after a night out.

The peacefulness, that’s the feeling I always want to carry with me, inside my heart.

That’s Amore!

Other fantastic tree in our garden.
