Even for an experienced time-traveler this summer in Copenhagen was a strange event in the space time continuum. Seems like summer began only yesterday but I have been in Copenhagen for 3 months and Charlene arrived two months ago. After a nice start to July, a hundred things since then tore me in a hundred directions and here we are, packing up and leaving Copenhagen again. Time does not seem to care about all the best intentions in the world, sometimes I feel in control and at other times it is like a wild ride and you just hang on, only at the end to look up and ask “what happened?”. Naturally, pretending to be a time-lord I get mad at myself and the universe for not allowing me to be being the master of time and all things when they don’t exactly go as planned (what does really?).

Unforseen negative things and people were allowed to steal too much energy. And somehow over the past month I have also managed to bruise my ribs, tear a muscle in my chest, get the flu and get every muscle and nerve stuck in my neck and left shoulder. This time-traveler is getting a bit old. Not something I am used to, being less than 100%, and I do not handle it all that well.

Fortunately, magic continues to happen and I am the luckiest time traveler in the world as Charlene puts up with me and even finds me funny when I am grumpy. We have done some fantastic work that I am proud of at our company Coffee and Magic which grows in awesomeness every day. This company and our work is extremely important to me, it is proving a very special thing. This summer we even created wicked new sites for me and for Charlene as well. I really look forward to showing you the websites we have coming up. Imagine that, I like working with IT again.

Ah well, enough of the grumpyness and letting out steam. The TARDIS is now ready for our upcoming US Mad and Magic road trip and many very positive things happened in Copenhagen. Met great friends, made new friends, worked some great events working for great people and some of the nicest memories are of two trips to Jylland where Charlene got to meet most of my family. I have a million things to be happy and thankful for, life is weird and dark and bright and wonderful.
