hela världen står i blom



































I walked around the bay last night
to a new, slower rhythm,
Eva Dahlgren's latest streaming through the ears.
(The album title Jag sjunger ljuset - I sing light
is exactly what she does... 
In my humble opinion
she also sings images & fragrances,
an ethereal beauty.) 



Plants in the confines 
of the closed wintergardens 
pressed against the sizzling evening sun,
a cherry tree stretching its
tender, blooming branches towards the light. 
Everything in bloom.

WINDFLOWER














on my 2nd cup of coffee already.
another morning of the spring light
tickling the eyelids.
this time of year is glorious,
but has a tendency 
to make you a little restless at the same time
- do you find the same? 
















the earth awash with wood anemone
- or windflower,
as it is also known. 
i think over here it is often seen
as a sweet & tender 
encapsulation of spring,
but i rather love that notion of
"windflower",
the sense of wild
it evokes. 












a tender wildness,
that's exactly how spring seems to feel.

from a light-filled,
natural, pared-down London home.

FLOWER BOMB























this light that wakes you up in the morning,
tickles the eyelids 
and whispers "come & play" in the ear,
then lingers on until late evening.
















a lightness that awakens
every cell in the body.













a flower bomb
that has exploded outside.
















"you can cut all the flowers
but you cannot keep
s p r i n g
from coming."

SMOOTH VELVET



















































Thought I'd share some images
 for Helsinki Coffee Festival from the weekend,
where the ambience was as rich, dark & velvety
as all that freshly-brewed,
carefully sourced coffee.
There's a dose of magic
when people who are passionate
about what they do
unite.

CLOUDS ON THE HORIZON




















A brief visit over here
in the middle
of a perfectly ordinary Wednesday
marked by intermittent
rain & shine.
I'm churning out words on the keyboard,
lots of words,
& when words begin to take over,
I have an urge to escape into images even for a brief moment.












I'm quite good at fluffing up a cumulus cloud
from a duvet,
but this guy is doing the real thing!













Pieni piipahdus tänne
aivan tavallisen keskiviikon lomassa,
jolloin vuoroin sataa ja paistaa.
Nakuttelen sanoja,
paljon sanoja,
& kun sanat tahtovat ottaa tekemisestä ylivallan
täytyy edes hetkellisesti paeta kuviin. 

Olen aika hyvä pöyhentämään täkistä kumpupilven,
mutta tässäpä ihminen, joka loihtii ihka oikeita!
