Friday 26 February 2010


For many days I have been thinking of rain. Then last night someone reminded me of it again. It is difficult to remember how it sounds. How it sounds over a roof when sleeping or on window sills. Or on a lake or a sea against water. Or through leaves of trees. I think it is the gentlest sound if I just remember right.

Very much I feel the spring even though it is so much snow in here and more floating all the time. This morning in the allotment garden I had the snow up to my tights on my walk. I laughed a bit there for that moment. Still, the feeling of spring is stronger than the snow outside. Being very restless. Waking up very early what I like a lot. Please send me a bit of tape or a string that I can tie myself in one place. Or I stay still, but I think it is the blood inside me wanting to go to every place in the world the same time.

Rosemary potatoes and carrots in the oven. Better to make some tahini sauce and salad to go with them.

Have a silent and slow weekend filled with warmth!

    I think the sound of rain is something really nice and calms me makes me wish to be in bed or on the couch crawl into a warm blanket... enjoying every bit or touch of earth or roof of it...
    have a nice weekend...

    Kiitos kultainen Essi,

    Mukavaa että muistat, täällä satoi ihanasti lauantai-yönä, vaikkakin lumen päälle, mutta siltikin. Vilkutuksia kaukomaille ja teekupilla kippis!
