Some days have a way to take their own way and not turn out as you have planned them, but at the end of the night you have to go to bed and be ready for a new tomorrow.

This was one of those days – I had a busy day planned coffee with Mr. Graae, a doctors appointment, a short but imported meeting at Boozt, some orders that needed to be signed and then home for a evening of great yoga nidra – to clear my head in this my week of. The coffee was great, the doctor toke a little extra time and the visit to the office toke a more then a little extra – but that is why I like it. So I  left late, the trains and Metro played a trick on me so I missed yoga.

Istead I desided to watch the HBONordic premiere from yesterday The Normal Heart the adaptation of play writer Mr. Larry Kramers play,  about a gay activist Ned Weeks attempt to raise HIV/AIDS awareness during the early 1980s in New York. It is a story of fighting the unknown, fear and prejudice, trying to free a whole group of the community from isolation. But also a great love story in a period of time with free love and camp fires in the Pines.

Now more then 30 years later a cure has still not been found and everyday 6.000 people are infected, so the story is very relevant and hopefully help to bring HIV/AIDS back on the agenda.
