Moments from the wilderness, quality of life, offline vacation and book releases by Mike Koontz.






Moments from the wilderness
Summer equals offline vacation



Just a quick hello from my pristine offline vacation.
I am still enjoying a wonderful and productive offline vacation, but life is this endless waterfall of unbridled inspiration in any given day's endless little things.
It comes fully packed ( inspiration ) within the beings that inhabit those days, the separate and connected individual moments and all the everyday stuff.

So I had to pop in for a quick long read post because life inspired me to try and capture the gorgeous real life art which is on full display right in our very own wildlife place, our garden of trees :).






















2050AD
[ Oceans run the risk of having more total weight of plastic than fish.]











Be it the black clouds of gathering ravens swirling across our tree top garden crowns, or the ephemeral sunrise that paints each day with similar looking yet completely unique shades of light and colors mixed with interstellar stories from far away travelers.
Inside a hot and naughty passionate kiss and the tunes of metal, the iron we break and mold with the sweat and pain of our muscles courtesy of our own health and fitness journey in the gym. The grandeur of the universe or the complexity of all things living, life inspires us all in every moment and every day.
If we allow ourselves to see that simple fact of life and inspiration is a completely different question, however.















But I certainly do.
And so, I had to pop right back into the stream and show you guys this gorgeous view of our enchanted wildlife garden.
This palace of wild is a meticulously cultivated rewilded garden and it inspires me through the sheer existence of it.















The way the increasing amount of wildflowers bend and wave in the lightness of the summer breeze and the way the wildlife itself claims it in ever greater number and makes it their own home each year.















That growing presence of ever more life is a slice of a life that is endlessly growing more vital and vibrant lush with each season that passes it by.
And as such, through the local wildlife flocking to our garden of trees and the vivid colors, hue and tonality, the range of blue and red, white and green, yellow, red and everything in between, through the endless song of plant and animal life.
I can now happily call this place of ours a proper pagan Eden, ever improving, ever growing wilder, yet more balanced and healthy :).















And that is what makes this garden, life itself, this photo, nature, great sex, health, fitness, great passion, music, joy and adventures, the wilderness of life and people and the cozy cold of a world drenched in snow and summer, an endless and wonderful loop of inspiration.
Which part gives birth to what, I do not know, nor do I care because they all inspire each other, they all give life to each other and it is all part of why life is endlessly worth loving and enjoying.















Well, for now, I am going back to my offline vacation :).
But in a few weeks time you can amongst other things look forward to another article of mine, talking about the health and fitness benefits of daily coffee consumption. And something new for my g+ columns, I am going to call it fitness school, 'Do you know' just as I am already doing here at 'a norse view.com', and you will find it in my healthier living collection.
And in late August, I will publish the first proper 2028AD book.
'Wings of a raven, 2028AD' is turning out to be the first proper international 2028AD stories release. Followed later this year by the next book installation in my 2028AD universe, 'a matter of trees'. A book from which you have already been able to read several journal entries over on my g+ account.















Both of these books will be available not only here on my own library ( https://anorseview.com ) but they will also be available for the first time at your own local libraries around the world, and once they are published all you will have to do is request that your local library stock my 2028AD books so you can borrow them free of charge from your own city library.
Allowing you to support both me and your local library at the same time, free of charge for you.















Unless, of course, you just prefer reading my 2028AD books directly at my 'Norse view' library :). Either way, you prefer it, I remain a happy pup and you will before the end of this year have the option of borrowing my 2028AD books at your local library too.

See you soon world.












And do not forget to pick up all that trash that litters our world, and if you do pick it up, why not tell the world about it over on G+ or whatever friendly online platform you happen to enjoy.
Show it off even more and help spread the message of cleaning up Planet Earth by adding the #pickitupSunday or #PickThatTrash

    'Wings of a Raven' By Mike Koontz is the first book in a shared contemporary book universe called 2028AD. Mature and at times even naughty storytelling and explicit events lurk behind each page as we traverse the known familiarities of planet Earth and the uncharted vastness of the universe.
    And if at any point and turn, you feel that you need more from this charming sci-fi universe, reach for the abyss of the dark world wide web and the home of every book and short story that relates to 2028AD right here at anorseview.com.
    The first book in this sci-fi universe, is delivered with a touch of abstract horror, and the pleasure and kink of sensual and sultry naughty love. Mixed with moments of life and death, science, and space exploration, pollution, sex, war, poverty, famine. The man made horror and climate change.
    In the 2028AD universe Earth is a world wrought in chaos. And it is a place where hope and despair tumble and take turn with the trembling steps of colonizing other planets while the oceans on planet Earth keeps rising.

  • Anthropocene: Volvo heralds the global end of the combustion engine-powered car.

    Quality time needed: 3 minutes





    the end of the combustion engine-powered car.
    Anthropocene is the science & footprint of you and me on Planet Earth



    This marks the end of the combustion engine-powered car.
    Volvo going all in on Electric engines in their car offerings.
    Starting 2019, every Volvo will make use of an electric motor.
    To top it off, Volvo will also make use of a completely climate neutral manufacturing operation by 2025.

    And while this is just one good ol car manufacturer crossing over to the better side of car manufacturing, Volvo will of course not be alone in this transition.
    Just as we see energy producers working their ass off to transition to a cleaner world without fossil fuel in their portfolios, car manufacturers are now all in on making safer ( autonomous cars ) and cleaner ( fully electric cars ) vehicles.

  • Anthropocene: a single strand of atoms, a prescient story about plastic litter, our warming oceans and individual health.

    Quality time needed: 10 minutes





    Plastic litter, a prescient story.
    Anthropocene is the science & art of life on Planet Earth



    At some point in life, you might discover yourself having walked far enough outside the map that plots the discourse of the common life that society expects all to follow beyond their birth, and at this point of discovery, this is where you might realize that you can cut out all the distractions of the buzzy bees, and the perceived connotations of what people stubbornly claims to be "just how it is", all while they seemingly refuse to see how things actually are.

    And once you do, the void of white noise and people without words of meaning to express, all the colors and moving shapes from all the non-essential patches that weaves together to raise a banner of hollowness will start to dissipate.

  • Planet Earth: open letter for our planet, health & mutual future to Merkel and our G20 leaders before their meeting with Trump.

    Quality time needed: 3 minutes





    Dear Chancellor Merkel.
    contemporary life is the science & art of Planet Earth



    Dear Chancellor Merkel, I am writing you in your role as one of the more public representatives of Europe ( and the prosperity of the entire world ).
    Billions of people reject Trump’s attempts to divide the world on climate change and our mutual health and wellbeing. His disregard for science and public progress, education, and health.
    And as such, we call on you to lead the G20 meeting towards a healthier and more sustainable future, with or without the involvement of the USA or any other country and leader that is willfully turning its back on the future of humanity, our planet, science, health, and equality.
