The Virtual Blog Tour …

Udden 5,5...

Hi ! … This post is a bit different from my ordinary posts … Because it is a tiny little part in what I think will become a world wide blog tour … And that´s why this post is written all in english … But that is only for this post … Next time is my post written both in swedish and english …

Leya at http://lagottocattleya.wordpress.com/ invited me to take part in a Virtual Blog Tour,  Monday 18:th of August, 2014 … Thank you for inviting me! …

A-C is a woman with many talents … Of wich blogging is one … Photographing is another … She like to travel … And she  gladely share her travel experiences with us followers … In posts containing fantastic photos and informative text … 

She has a passion for nature and all the things that goes along with that … Which can be seen in her Warden Spirits blog … This passion is something we both share … 

Then we have Totti … Her beautiful Lagotto … You can meet him in all of her 3 blogs … So check them out … 

What is Virtual Blog Tour … 

It´s a relatively new project for bloggers …  The rules are fairly simple :

  • Compose a one-time post which is posted on Monday … (date will be given to you from whoever passes on the tour)
  • Answer four questions about our creative process which lets other bloggers and visitors know what inspires us to do what we do …
    1. What am I working on? 
    2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?
    3. Why do I write/create what I do? 
    4. How does your writing/creating process work?  
  • Then pass the tour on to up to four other bloggers … Get their permission first and give them rules and specific Monday they are to post …     

Now, I´ll do my best to answer those 4 questions below…

1.  I always loved being out in nature … So nature is the red thread in my blog … Despite if I write about my parents … Or the Wildlife … 

Älgar 1,1...

Another thing that i´m passionated about is the landscape Jämtland … And its history … So one can say that a tiny part of this blog is to get other people aware of this fantastic landscape, where I live  …

2.   I share my blog with my presious Yarri … He is my everything and I love him so incredible much  …

Yarri 27,27...

He is always with me … Except for when i´m at the hospital  … Yarri has a lot to say about the time we share … And the objects we take photos of … And happily share his thoughts in his part of our blog …

Yarri och gräsänder 5,5...

3.  I´ve been working within healthcare for almost 32 years now … But I never ever really understood the problems you can  meet on the way as a next of kin … Especially when your parents get old and sick … Health care is not so given, as you could belive …

Solnedgång 61,61...

I started this blog when my father got a vascular dementia caused by a cerebral hemorrage … And then my mother got diagnozed with Alzheimer´s dementia …

Solnedgång 39,1...

Having parents with two different kind of dementia isn´t easy … Especially not for them … For me as a daughter, it has been like being on a roller coaster journey …

This journey isn´t always happy … It contains a lot of sorrow … Anger … Hopelessness … Despair … Education … Acceptance … And how strange it might sound … Also a lot of joy …

Solnedgång 40,40...

Being a traveller on this dementia journey is a chance to learn new things together with your parent … And to accept that the relationship we had … From now on and forward … Is going to take a new and not so straight direction …

Väg 1,1...

I´m trying to express and share my feelings … experiences … Without self-pity … My father isn´t with me any more … But my mother is … So my journey continues … And so does my blog … At least during this year … 

Grässtrå 3,3...

4.   My mood decides most of the time what my posts is going to be about … I try to compose a text that is understandably … Not just for me … And then I try to find photos that suits my text … 

But I can also do the opposite … Like in my last post about the Great grey Owl … In that post I started with my photos …  And then I start searching for a informative text …

Blommor 1,1,1...

Now I  have the pleasure of introducing you to Kathryn at  http://vastlycurious.com/  

… She says ”  I see beauty in the ordinary and mundane … A single note can twist my soul … I crave the aesthetics of life and my singular purpose is to create so my authentic soul can sing and dance again! ”  … 

In her blog you find beautiful photos of landscape … Nature … Architecture … Different kind of art … Music … Interesting text … 

She lives in the Netherlands … A country that I for one is not so familiar with … Though I live in Europe … So I´m glad that I´ve  found her blog … And I hope that you are going to find it to … 

Thank you for joining us on Monday the 25 of August Kathryn …  We’re looking forward to your contribution … 

// Maria 🙂  …

      The main reason why I join this tour is that I have a chance to learn more about other bloggers … And the fact that it only is one post …
      Yarri is going to have a post about what he has been doing during this summer …
      Looking forward to see you here again ! … // Maria 🙂

  3. A really wonderful post, Maria. Your photos are outstanding, especially the one of dear Yarri. He has such a sweet and wise face. It was nice to find out more about you and why you blog. I’m so sorry about your mom. Dementia is an awful disease. Hugs to you and Yarri. xx

    • mariayarri skriver:

      Thank you for your compliment about my photos … And I agree about Yarri … He is a wise little guy …
      In the beginning I did not think anyone would be interested of reading my blog … I mean, dementia isn´t the most happy and interesting theme to write about … But my readers proved me that I was wrong …
      My blog has given me new Cyber friends … And one of them, Leya , come all the way from the southern part of Sweden to visit me ! …
      As always , many hugs from me and Yarri to you ! … // Maria 🙂

    för min del är det bättre med svenska !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!????????????

    Hej ! … Detta var nog det enda inlägget i min blogg som kommer att vara helt på engelska … Jag deltar aldrig i såna här utmaningar annars … För mig är största utmaningen att få till ett alldeles eget inlägg … Men detta är ett bra sätt att få reda på vad som gör att andra börjat blogga och som får dem att fortsätta med sitt skrivande …
    Du får kolla på bilderna och passa på att träna din engelska lite, dear sister 😉 … // Maria 🙂

    Det var länge sedan jag var in på din sida, sommaren har ju varit så underbar, så datorn har kommit i sista hand. Fantastiskt vilka fina bilder!!! Helt makalösa! Speciellt gillade jag den första speglingsbilden.. Ha det gott!

    • mariayarri skriver:

      Hej Anneli ! … Jag har varit som dig i sommar … Sällan i närheten av en data …
      Tack för beröm av mina bilder … Den första är min favorit också …
      Vi hörs ! … // Maria 🙂
