s o r r y m u m Venice - doglovers behind the scenes in Italy
You cannot stay in Venice and not notice how much the dogs are loved. Everywhere you see them. In the streets, at the restaurants, at the trainstations, in the shops, at the bars. Not so unusual. What I found extraordinary, however, was the owners attitude towards their dogs. I never saw an owner yell at his dog. Only patience and love. And the dogs where socialised and included. And happy and patient. How wonderful to see the old dog allowing the puppy to say hi and the two owner chattings in the street - going in different directions but taking the time to stop and let their dogs greet eachother. This is how the puppies learns about other dogs and how to be a dog with other dogs. Stuff only a dog can teach a dog. I photographed these dogs and their owners in Venice in april 2016. Thank you, Venice! s o r r y m u m

av oss vokste opp med sannheter som viste seg ikke å holde mål. Sannheter og
illusjoner fra 60- og 70-tallet falt for mange i grus på 80- og 90-tallet da vi
etablerte oss med barn og familie og forstod at vi var nettopp det: kvinner.
For da angrep kjønnsrollene – eller naturen, vil enkelte påstå – oss i et
bakholdsangrep vi ikke var forberedt på etter kjønnsfornektelsen i oppveksten.
For enkelte av oss var det selvfølgeligheten
som falt. Selvfølgeligheten vi var oppdratt i og…
Simon Sinek: https://youtu.be/nRaqe9M2DYc Take a good look at your life. Do you enjoy what you`re doing? Do you have a reason for doing it? WHY do you do what you do? Do you wake up in the morning happy and eager to go to work? Simon Sinek put it all in perspective for me. After I found my WHY it inspires and gives me the drive I need to work on my new project. It also taught me why my previous start-ups didn`t become a huge success. I didn`t know why I did it. I knew what I was doingand how I how to do it, but my heart was not in it. This time I found my WHY and it gives me the inspiration I need to do what is required to make it a success. Although sometimes I forget my WHY and get lost in numbers and emptiness, which I regard to be leftoverthoughts from previous startups and experiences. But when my WHY clicks in again, it gets me back on the right track immediately, and I feel pure joy and an insane urge to work and share. By the way - the success I reach for is not about money.
