One autumn day with friends a while back. I felt the seasons change.

Rubber boots and woollen socks. Yellow leaves and raindrops.

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.
— John Muir

Some summer memories sent to you from rainy Finland…
Notes ⋅ 24th September 2012
I’ve had a couple of joyfull adventures during the past months that still fill me with warmth. In those moments I managed to catch some photos too. Thought it might do good to spend some time remembering and relishing them. And sharing here too… The photos are from travels to Gotland (Sweden) and Helsinki. The sweet company was the best part.
This past weekend I finished the work I started during the spring. The feeling of tidying up all the story scripts filled with notes and my sketches was quite overwhelming. Both gratefulness and melancholy rushed through me. The first time this year I really feel like autumn has arrived and has brought new plans with it. Courage too.
More photos coming later :)

Tomorrow I’ll be on my way to Visby… What a lovely feeling to have a little holiday in a while!
Sending restful thoughts Your way,
It was the beginning of June and misty morning at my grandparent’s summer cottage.

Bike rides while listening birds sing their songs. Escaping raindrops and trying to catch glimpses of sun shine.
long forest walk and photographing in a good company

Lately I’ve experienced so much kindness that I’ve had tears in my eyes. Thank you Friends! These things have brought joy to my days this past week. And the fact that for three months I can call myself an illustrator (a dream had for a looong time) just makes me hold my breath…
Maybe being vulnerable isn’t that scary after all. Makes one see the amazing things even more clearly. Life is beautiful!
Sending gentle winds and love Your way!
Yes, a surprise :)
For some time now I’ve been lost in my thoughts and now felt a need for change and get back on the path.
About a year ago my kind brother offered to make a new lay out for this little space of mine… Yesterday we finally sat down to finish everything. I’m so happy that now I can share some of my favourite blogs and melodies easily. And what a good time we had! He is amazing, isn’t he.
Thank you Simo!
