Berlin


I went to Berlin with my friends to spend the New Year. I didn't shoot much, it was more like spending time together but when others started serious shopping tour I grabbed my camera.

Love letter to the World



I love you world.
Love your seven different faces.
Love your healing waters
wide and deep.
Love the thing you have
with the sun and the moon
and what it teaches us 
about companionship,
about change, about revolution.


Love the mirror at your navel,
how it shows off your hemispheres,
illustrating important lessons
about balance,
about reflection,
about centering ourselves.


Love how much like little world we are.
How our earthquake is your shiver,
your sneeze a tsunami,
an avalanche, a mudslide.

When you have hot flashes
we call it drought.
You once covered your whole body
with ice to cool a fever.


When you weep,daily,
over our continued ignorance,
our epic failures and petty squabbles
-our every transgression,
your waters break and we are born again.

Love your outreach, our mutual attraction, your gravitation pull.

For every treasure we steal from your womb
you send us hail and thunderstorms.
When we invent poisons and no antidotes
and build monuments to ourselves
you send tornadoes and hurricanes
to remind us of how small we truly are.



And yet, every day you continue to humble,
inspire, and move us to tears
with your natural beauty.

Our own efforts to mimic your vistas
are what we dare call art and dance,
music and poetry,
architecture and language,
and love.
It is the only thing we have ever gotten right.

We can't pass the course on humanity
if we keep failing the lessons
on harmony
and until we unlearn fear and hate.

Thank you, world, for this
open-book exam before us,
for still believing
we are worthy of your love.

We who love you black already know
that everything we do to you
we also do to ourselves...

-Frank X Walker-

Happy New Year!

Oikein mahtavaa Uutta Vuotta!

Live, love, laugh and we'll have Christmas around the year !


I think as you grow older your Christmas list gets shorter,
because the things you want can't be bought.
Live, love, laugh and we'll have Christmas around the year :)

Happy holidays my friends!

Oikein hyvää joulua ystävät!

Most beautiful things must be felt with the heart



The best and most beautiful things
in the world cannot be seen or even touched-
they must be felt with the heart.

Happy Independence Day Finland


 Mistä on minun Suomeni tehty? Raikkaasta ja puhtaasta ilmasta, merestä, metsästä, taivaasta ja vapaudesta.
Hyvää itsenäisyyspäivää!

Wandering in Rome




Wandering

Maybe all we're doing is wandering
Walking around
Until we find out our destination
But the best places come from those
Who do not plan
Who don't know where exactly they're going
Those who just go  along with it
And maybe that's why we don't always go the right path
We fought against wandering around and just went

Rome La Dolce Vita







Nyt kun katson näitä kuvia jälleen kerran ymmärrän kuinka kuvat valehtelevat. Vai olenko se minä joka valehtee vai onko mulla vaan hyvin valikoiva silmä joka ei suostu näkemään muutakuin kaunista!!! Näiden kuvien perusteella lähtisin uudestaan Roomaan, nyt heti. Unohtaisin pakokaasut, kodittomat, narkkarit, vihaiset roomalaiset ruuhkametrossa ja tylyttämisen! Hitto kun näyttää ihanalta ja todella unohdin jo kaikki mainitsemani asiat, voinko tilata jo uuden lentolipun :)
Hyvää viikonloppua, tänne etelän harakoillekkin tuli tänään lunta.

Now when I look at these pictures from Rome I understand how much pictures lie, or is it me who is lying or do I have very selective eye!!! You can't feel any air pollution, you can't see homeless people, drug addicts, angry Romans in rush hour metro etc. Based on this few pictures I would go back right now and to be honest I already forgot all those things, I wanna go back :)
Have a great weekend!

Lake Garda



Kylläpäs aika vierähti, mutta täällä ollaan taas :) Kerkesin käymään Roomassakin parin viikon reissulla mutta kortti vielä purkamati joten pari kuvaa kauniilta Gardajärveltä. Nämä kuvat oli Malcesinestä, pieni kaunis paikka jossa oli köysirata funivia Monte Baldo -vuorelle. Veronasta pääsi bussilla ja tämä oli vain pieni päiväreissu mutta voisin palata uudestaan ihastelemaan kauniita maisemia ihan ajan kanssa. Silloin oli pilvinen ja sateinen päivä joten ei menty vuoren huipulle asti vaan väliasemalla 575 metriin koska huippu oli pilvessä. Puolimatkassakin riitti ihastelemista ja ensimmäinen kuva on sieltä otettu. Jos joskus tulee elämässä sellaisia hetkiä että haluaisi ajan pysähtyvän ja vain voivansa jäädä siihen hetkeen  tämä oli sellainen. Ei voinut kuin haukkoa henkeä sen kauneuden edessä joka avautui silmien edessä. 
Pieni suunnitelma takaraivossa on jos joskus vielä lentäis Venetsiaan, sieltä junalla/bussilla tuonne, jokunen päivä Malcesinessä, patikoida vuorella, relata ja jatkaa matkaa tsekkaamaan Como-järvi ja takaisin Venetsiaan! 
Viikko kotona, töissä ja kaipuu uusiin kokemuksiin on jo alkanut...unelmointi on aina ihanaa :) 
Hyvää viikonloppua.

It has been a while since I have been here but you know....life and I have been on holiday in Rome for 2 weeks so forgive me :) I haven't had time to check my Rome pictures yet but instead I show you few pics from Lake  Garda from my spring vacation. These are from little town called Malcesine and I have to say I fell in love the sight in first picture!! If you ever have a moment when you want to stop the time and just stay there this was the moment. We don't have mountains in south Finland so the sight was really powerful to me and the peace which I felt there on the half way to the sky, gosh it was so beautiful. I know I will go back some day and take more time to be there than short day trip from Verona.
Have a nice weekend!

The end of the carnival of light!


Hauskuuden loppu tänään on sitten virallista, Linnanmäki sulkeutuu! Suomi hiljenee, ihmiset lakkaavat hymyilemästä, kaikki sulkeutuvat koteihinsa kunnes kevät koittaa ja on taas aika ryömiä koloista ulos!!! Tuo olis siis sarkasmia jos joku ei ymmärtänyt :)

Today is the last day when our amusement park is open before winter comes. It is time to stop having fun, smiling and living full life. We crawl into our warm holes until spring comes and then we start smile, live and laugh again!!! That was sarcasm if you didn't get it :)
