“Runo päivässä – Poem a Day” Mediassa

Matkalla Ylen studioon kertomaan aiheesta

On my way to National Broadcasting Company to give an interview!

From my book “Transitions – a Jouney thought Hell”

“One such aspiration was writing a book. This is actually my second book. The first book didn’t see the light of day.

This is what happened:

It was that faithful journey from Seoul to San Diego, San Francisco, and to Helsinki with a lay-over in London. Earlier that week I’ve had a delicious dinner by our hosts in a very…’local’ restaurant. Dinner was delicious, but little did I know, that I left the restaurant with a very uninvited guest.

A leptospira bacteria.

Next morning I was feeling feverish. I didn’t know it at the time, but I was suffering from the first stage of Neuroleptospirosis, running a high fever, and feeling really sick.

I always traveled with two computers, one company-issued business-computer and one civilian computer. It is amazing how much free time one has in business-traveling. In lounges, during flights and generally just waiting.

So I decided to put that time on good use. I started writing a book about business-strategy in digital era. I had one version of the book in computer’s hard-drive, and a back-up copy in a memory stick. I was about 80% done with the book.

When I left Frisco, I was so sick that I decided to put my civilian computer in my luggage. Something I never do. But I was so weak, I could barely walk.

As faith would have it, the bag, with the computer and memory-stick inside it, was stolen.

Bye-bye book.

Welcome Neuroleptospirosis.

And good-bye to the life I had.

Ask, and the Universe replies.

But not in a way you expect.”


Clean your cup

“If you were offered a drink from a dirty cup, would you accept it?.

No matter how pure the content is, if the cup is dirty, you would refuse to drink it.

So it is with love, healing and helping others; if your cup is dirty, nothing good comes of it. This is a constant activity, cleaning your cup every day.

It becomes easier, after the cup is once totally clean, a light rinse every day will keep it clear. ”

From my book: Transitions –  a Journey to hell and Beyond

Pain (9)

Pain (9)

I live, I breath
I let it rain on me

I seek, I ache
I try it not to break me

I laugh, I feel,
I make believe it is real

Am I strong enough?
Is my heart too broken?

Do I whine too much?
Am I too outspoken?

Do I make you laugh?
Should I try it harder?

I try as hard as I can
I hurt, I plead

I am down on my knees

I hold, I stand
I take it like a man

I try as hard as I can
