“I’m Brigitte Gacha. I’m an author.” She says with a soft French accent. “I write novels in French but they are translated too. I’m in a hurry, but thank you for stopping me!
I’m sure we will meet again. It feels like we will.”

She does it for the children

She does it for the children

“She does it for the children.” Chirps in the companion. “Hana is a doctor for children’s skin. When they come to her they are crying. But when they see her they stop. I’m her assisting nurse so I have seen it time and again. Hana is so inspiring! we are from Slovakia originally.” 
And the whole time Hana Zelenekova was smiling and laughing.

Twins dressed like twins

Twins dressed like twins

“I am Gerd Nordström and this is my twin Gunn. We don’t see each other so often. So when we do, we think it’s fun to dress alike! She lives in Dalarna and I live in Sigtuna. We have been out on the town browsing since 9 this morning so headed home now. It’s a funny thing watching people in today’s society, it’s like a ghost town. People don’t smoke anymore, they just concentrate on their telephones. Which is good I guess. The sad thing is when they have kids with them that don’t get attention. That’s the sad thing.”

Henny

Henny

“My name is Henny Jacobson. I like the jacket too! You can turn it inside out you know. It’s very versatile. Oh I’m glad I stopped to talk to you! One doesn’t always dare. But it’s so nice when one does get a chance to talk to people. My family is actually really nice and come and visit me often, not everybody has that. And it becomes so important at my age when near and dear friends have started disappearing. That’s how it goes. Life and death. I am on my way into Feelgood here now to keep up the good health actually. Thank you again for stopping and talking to me!

Janet from Cape Town

Janet from Cape Town

“My name is Janet, I’m from South Africa. I Left in 2001 when I was a grown woman, which was tough, but I had to! Realized we were stuck in our closed-off society, with the apartheid and censorship and sanctions and everything. We had no books, no music, and no art coming in, nothing. Finally I couldn’t do it anymore. Even if it meant leaving my family behind and detaching from them. I travelled, walked the journey of Santiago de Compostela and wrote a book almost as a metaphor of ones life journey. Then I ended up here in Sweden after a few years. I’m now living in Gnesta. You need peace to find your inner self, it is peaceful there.”

Marianne and her bluebird

“I’m Marianne, on my way to have a drink at Scandic Hotel here. I try to dress the way that I want, the way that I’m most comfortable with, I like the punkish-style so I try to dress that way.
And agreed that we need to be less ageist in society!
My bluebird pin is actually for supporting children and youth. All ages are important.

Agneta Burn Victim

“My name is Agneta, I’m sitting in the shade with all these clothes since I can’t be in the sun. One year ago a kerosene stove exploded on me. I was in hospital for 3 months. I couldn’t walk at first but now I can do that at least! There’s always a bright side! And I love the sound of your project! Important to communicate over age groups!”

Yoga Healing

Yoga Healing

I’m Agneta Heuman. The best thing with summer is finally having vacation! 
I’m a pensioner actually but I have been giving medicinal yoga classes from my apartment during the past few years. After my accident in 1998 when a car hit me, I was in so much pain. Nothing helped. And so I tried out medicinal yoga and it actually worked! It was the only thing that worked. So I took a training course and became a certified teacher and have been giving classes ever since. It is fantastic. Even if you are not in pain it is a preventive therapy that is good for both the body, mind and soul. I haven’t tried any other yoga forms so I can’t compare it to anything but I think it is great!

“People stop me everyday in the street, amazed that I look so stylish at my age. The insidious ageism in our society says that you become invisible as you get older and that’s what I’m fighting against visually with my clothes.”
