I live in Kronogården, a part of the city known for its diversity amongst the people who live here. And thats one thing that makes me tickle, almost every day, because you feel as you are in the middle of a building-pot. That building-pot is filled with opportunity and thousends of different experiences hopefully shared as best they can. At the same time, thats a part of the modern society.Fact is that we often see that diversity is claimed in only a few parts of a city and sometimes that creates problems. These problems often leads to unsolved quests of understanding their neighbours and a relationship between neighbours of different culture, religious or traditional beliefs could be the same reason why they do not engage or, sadly to say, sometimes dont even seem to try to. But, sometimes you really see the potential that is being held and groomed in cities with locations living with diversity. And the most telling tool to get to know your neighbour is through activity of any kind. 

Kronogården has a lot of activity, you see a lot of movement, you see a lot of kids and youngsters outside all of the time.

Thats one thing I love about Kronogården. And that activity can translate into so many things.

For me, thats relationships, a connection reached through sports. In my case, basketball. Basketball, and sports in general, holds a lot of valuable tools. One thing Ive learned is that it creates a connection, it builds relationships. That one relationship is very valuable, even though sometimes its a bond of roleplaying. When you do your role, as in enjoying whatever sport that drove you to ask some guys to get in on a play or game of soccer or basketball. But sometimes, it goes beyond that, and allows you to grow as a person, making friends and it makes your interest in the sport you love evolve.


Soccer and basketball are right now flourishing through kids and teenagers who love to go outside and play sports, enjoying some nice weather, and just have a great time.

Tonight, I passed by Kronan and saw a bunch of youngsters playing soccer at the combo-court next to Kronogårdshallen and on the other side, at Kronan middle-school, a few kids were playing basketball. I wish I could take a snapshot of that scene. More activity like this makes people get more near to eachother and when it comes to sport it has always seemed like a proper tool for a society to prosper.

On the way back, I saw the same guys play (kids around 10-16 years old), and they were just going at it. I saw it in their eyes, joy and happiness. Whatever tool it is, thats a pretty good goal trying to reach.









My journey on social media has been an ongoing, interesting, fun, learning experience. This first couple of months has been a first trial, to see how an organization can benifit by socializing and be on display to others - both like-minded organizations and movements, and to those others whom the organization want to reach out to.
Learning experience:
* You need to put something on display, almost daily. This creates interest. If you lack continuity, you will loose interest.
* Be creative with your identity. Just as companys create their own customer base, you need to work with your "product". What are you and why?
* Expand your horizons. The amazing opportunity with being on social media is that you can cross boarders with so many different variations of interests. No one or anyting is in your social media eye.
Ahead lies a goal to seize, to put basketball on the social media map.

Rainy and quite cold today. It didnt matter to my 15-year old neighbour who wanted a 1on1 with me outside in the yard. A quick game to 7 before the weather got nasty. He rings my bell every other week when hes in town, and I like the fact that he wants to play although Im mostly busy chasing my kids around (!). 
Its about the youth!
Take care.
