Look up



You see the sky when you look for hope
The hope that the cool breeze will hit your warm face
On a hot sky lit by the afternoon light

You look up at the sky when your imagination is running free
You look to the clouds to see crazy things in your imagination 
Like a zoo for the day dreamer or the wisher

You look at the sky to see the stars dancing around the evening sun 
The evening skies are the most gorgeous thing to a painter 
The sky paint’s it’s own painting with the colors of the heavens

Kissing silk petals





A vibrant sun
Soaking a landscape
Of rolling plains
And the greenest of hills

Flowers galore give salute
To the rising sun
And to the setting sun
Flooding dreamlike skies
With pink power

Rays reach out
Kissing silk petals
Flowers huddled
A crowd of scented color
Frozen in ink
Frozen in time

Nature's nirvana
Brings life to
The sky
Shifting color
Pink to purple
And back to pink again

Flowers speak in whispers
Swaying in the sweet scented breeze

Only dreams
Can bring this landscape
Freezing the sun at half mass

Stamens release their pollen
Creating more beauty
Along the hillside
More
Purples
Pinks
Yellows,Reds
This fantasy of flowers
And painted pink skies
Will never change
Visit when you like
When you need an escape 
-Matthew Foor-

Ihanaa viikonloppua!
Happy weekend!

Deeper and deeper

 Nyt ollaan ihan päivänliljan iholla, todella lähellä ja olen aivan innoissani näistä melkein abstrakteista kuvista. Innostuin oikein tosissaan tästä tutkielmista ja voisin kokeilla lisää mutta nämä päivänliljat taitaa olla melkein viimeiset kukkijat pihallani jotka sopii tähän tarkoitukseen. Tarkennus on todella minimalistinen mutta juuri epätarkat alueet ovat parhaita. Epätarkkuus sekoittaa värit toisiinsa ja luovat ihan oman kuvansa. Ihanaa kun pitkästä aikaa saa jotain hieman erilaista ja on vielä ihan täbänä omista kuvistaan, rakastan yli kaiken tuota ensimmäistä kuvaa :)
Ihanaa viikonalkua!

Now we really go under the skin, deeper and deeper into the Daylily. I really love these almost abstract pictures. The focus is tiny, really tiny but the best part is the unfocused areas where the colours get mixed and creates their own picture.
Have a great start to new week!

Dimly mood melody


As the night comes here through 
In its dimly mood melody 
And every feeling is blue 
In another morning somewhere free...

As long as skies are blue



Ihanaa viikonloppua ja nauttikaa hyvät ihmiset lämmöstä vaikka hieman hiki onkin. Minä palelen töissä kaulahuivin ja villashaalin kanssa, välillä käyn ulkona lämmittelemässä luitani :) Ilmastointi on kiva ja helpompihan sitä on vaatetta lisätä kuin poistaa kun jossain vaiheessa tulee raja vastaan varsinkin työpaikalla.

Have a great weekend my friends and enjoy the heat. It has been +30 celsius here in Finland which is quite rare but so nice. I'm going to work to freeze as there is air-condition which really blows my hair out :) Really, I have to wear scarf around my neck and huge woollen shawl but I don't mind. It is easier to wear more clothes than take it all away if it is too hot. It is working place so there is some kind of moral rules how to dress I guess :)

Reality checkup


Se taitaa loma olla lopuillaan, pitkä viikonloppu töissä edessä. Krakovan jälkeen en ole oikeestaan muuta tehnyt kuin löhöillyt, lukenut, kuunnellut musiikkia, ottanut päivätorkkuja ulkona ja sisällä, katsellut elokuvia, nauttinut ihanista kesäilloista, vain ollut. Tarpeeksi kun alkanut löhöily kyllästyttään poikennut jossain ihmisten ilmoilla ja taas jatkanut löhöilyä, tätä voisi kai kutsua todelliseksi lomailuksi vailla minkäänlaista stressiä tekemisestä tai olemisesta! Oikeestaan kiva mennä töihin ja nähdä kollegat ketä nyt paikalla sattuu olemaan, taitaa olla ikävä hurttia huumoria....apua sanoinko julkisesti että ikävä työkavereita :)

My summer vacation is ending, I have a long weekend at work. After Krakow I have basically done anything than just being, reading, listening music, watching movies, taking afternoon naps in the garden, watching sunsets etc. No any kind of stress about anything, I think this has been very good vacation and totally relaxing. I'm ready for going back to work, see my workmates and joking around with them :)

Botanical Garden, Krakow


 Joitakin kukkijoita Krakovan kasvitieteellisestä puutarhasta. Nämä nyt vois olla kuvattu missä tahansa puutarhassa mutta minua ilahduttaa eniten nämä kukkivat kukat mitä nyt sattuu olemaan. En kerennyt käymään kuin puolet alueesta läpi, juuri nämä kukkijat. Metsäosuudet jätin väliin, siellä olisi ollut rhodot, mangoliat jne. 
Ihanaa viikonloppua!

Few pictures from Botanical Garden in Krakow. Light is always trouble in these visits, you know hard daylight and they shut doors 7pm. so you just have to manage with what you have. I tried to find blooming from the shadow part of the garden so the light would not be so terrible bad. There is more to come in time.
Have a great weekend!

It would take me forever to tell you!

As it is, we are merely bolting our lives - gulping down undigested experiences as fast as we can stuff them in - because awareness of our own existence is so superficial and so narrow that nothing seems to us more boring than simple being. If I ask you what you did, saw, heard, smelled, touched and tasted yesterday, I am likely to get nothing more than the thin, sketchy outline of the few things that you noticed, and of those only what you thought worth remembering. Is it surprising that an existence so experienced seems so empty and bare that it's hunger for an infinite future is insatiable?

But suppose you could answer,  "It would take me forever to tell you, and I am much too interested in what's happening now."
How is it possible that a being with such sensitive jewels as the eyes, such enchanted musical instruments as the ears, and such a fabulous arabesque of nerves as the brain can experience itself as anything less than a god? And, when you consider that this incalculably subtle organism is inseparable from the still more marvellous patterns of it's environment - from the minutest electrical designs to the whole company of the galaxies - how is it conceivable that this incarnation of all eternity can be bored with being?
