Wow! I have a blog!

Hey! Where were you all this time??? :)

Maybe this thing only works when it is cold - after all, the sunny months are to be enjoyed around here.

In the immortal words of the Texas governor: "I shall be back!"

I am not too worried... :)

I think, therefore, i am.
I write, therefore...

What was i thinking?

And if you look, you look through me...

I like U2. Everyone knows it by now...

"If I could stay... then the night would give you up
Stay then the day would keep it’s trust
Stay with the demons you drowned
Stay with the spirit I found
Stay and the night would be enough"

and Sting...

"There's a little black spot on the sun today
That's my soul up there
It's the same old thing as yesterday
That's my soul up there"

Words stay. Living under the same sun, not everyone has the same inspiration. It's all in our eyes... it's a matter of perspective :)

Coming back from my holiday and after listening to Madonna singing "Holiday" I considered it to be a subtle sign for me to pick up the keyboard and write. The web is full of trivialities (is this even an english word??) and wannabe writers - i don't consider myself in that category...

What is a blog anyway? Some sort of ego massage? A public form of diary? The future of information?

Life is short, the sun is (briefly) shinning - why bother with reading and writing?

just enjoy...

On a cold day

As i sit here writting it is -18C outside. This extreme cold could be seen as a negative thing by most southern europeans but it is something you need to experience to fully understand the silences in Finnish culture. The feeling of coping with this cold (a feeling of inner power) is an extremely spiritual experience. Two persons that go through it together need not say a word to convey what is on their minds: "Sisu" - A word that defines the main character of Finns. It defines the guts and courage needed to live under these extreme conditions and the liberation within them. In the same way the air feels pure in here there is something that purifies your soul... no words needed. Experimenting this here you can't help but belong and understand in silence with a smile in your face.

Bring on that purifying cold!

"Beautiful day"

As i sit here typing the sun is setting outside. The last traces of light are peeking in between the buildings and the blue moment is near.
"Clic-clac" goes the keyboard while the words appear in the screen... and yet my mind is away; far... far away!

"What you don’t have you don’t need it now
What you don’t know you can feel it somehow
What you don’t have you don’t need it now
Don’t need it now
Was a beautiful day" - U2 "Beautiful day"
