    This week I’ve really realised how much I dislike the long, too long winters of Finland. No matter how much I like them and things related to them; snow, skiing, ice, skating, ice crystals, northern lights etc. I still think they should be a bit shorter. Or I should have the means to escape south in this point… Or for good.

    And you know what? I have a secret to break – I am leaving for good. Explains the silence here too; I’m occupied. Planning, dreaming, googling, making calculations, selling stuff. Identifying the essential and eliminating the rest. And cultivating the habit (see the following pictures).

    By far this hasn’t been a good year, but I do hope to make it better in the end.

    Ps. If you happen to have an excellent last minute solo tips or maybe even tickets to give, I’d be very happy to use them. In example, drinking this light rosé under a blooming tree would be just perfect. Sea view a plus.

    *Wine: Leth Zweigelt Rosé from Austria. Excellent
