Back home after getting the chance

to play in a studio for a couple of days

- a whole new playing field

to slowly start finding my feet in. 

Pinching myself as the train was homeward-bound

and ploughing through faded fields,

for getting to throw myself

into what I love

and having a whole bunch of new people

to have fun with and learn from

at the same time.

A sense of direction

and support that's so uplifting.


But today it's a slow, drizzly Sunday

and I've got myself into a state of mesmerisation

over Bruno Aveillan's photography.

I simply adore his world 

of softness, subtleness,

marriage of light and shadows.

He's also a creator

of the most ravishing video imagery -

With these I want to wish you

a touch of beauty and magic this Sunday.

For the past week it's felt

as if the days were running through my fingers,

fleeting moments

without much focus or clarity. 

But an underlying tenderness and lightness I guess

behind all the fragmented threads of thought. 

Tying up projects,

getting ready for those to come, 

and jumping on that train again at the end of the week. 

Wishing you plenty of starlight and softness

in the middle of everyday life as you know it.

A few snippets from our excursion last weekend

to a salvage yard in Billnäs 

and the idyllic village of Fiskars,

about an hour's drive west of Helsinki. 

Realising how long it had been 

since the last time we'd all bundled up in the car

and headed somewhere for the day

just for the fun of it. 

Despite the chalky hues in this post,

- enough so that it called for an emergency stop

at the garden centre on the way home.

Have a lovely weekend!

It's been a whirl of a March,

but my head is finally above

a pile of work, trips and family stuff. 

And my studies started,

the best thing of all. 

The words are still few and far apart,

but images are spinning in my head.

And a weekend mood is here,

how I've missed that feeling.

Light & Love everyone!

Sometimes it's the smallest things that make one happy

- like the local florist telling me she had something 

in the back that was meant for me

- and home I came with a succulent branch of magnolia. 

And my two kids playing so well at their concert today,

making their mummy's heart burst with pride and joy

- seeing them up there,

well in their bones,  happy in their little souls.

And despite a rather hectic week

and lots of things on at the weekend,

this light that just seems to keep one sustained,

hearing the rain pattering in the night,

turning the grass another notch greener.

A friend's cat, a Bengal beauty

that we're looking after this week,

all demure, distant and alluring,

until she gives in and presses her exquisite head

deeper into the nook of my arm.

This magnolia reminding me of London 

and  declaring in all her budding lusciousness

that it's March and it's spring!
