This is me doing something a little different than I’m used to on here, but I figured- why not?
I love creating, and that in a variety of ways. I find that all the different outlets inspire each other, and when one feels dry, the other already left the water running.
I think I create mostly to see. See the world around me a little more intently, myself a little clearer and reach beyond the skin of the people around me. Imagine for a moment what it would feel like to be in their shoes.
I create to truly see the beauty, and in so doing, hoping I can aid another soul in their quest to keep eyes open when a harsh world rushes in.
Because there’s so much of it. The beauty. It’s all around, ready to overwhelm us in the best way possible.
Now to what I actually meant to say. I created a video about our Lappland Christmas. For those of you who don’t know, I live in Finland, and with that comes the added privilege of being able to be in a real winter wonderland around the holidays. This year we took it a step further and drove up north, to stay in a log cabin in the woods for a week.
It was the most peaceful, simple, most beautiful few days I’ve had in a long time.
This is me commemorating it, savouring to appreciate every ounce of flavour it brought us.
If you, like me now, miss having a proper winter (this year’s winter has not been anything to brag about- not even here) or are just in need of a few moments of peace and quiet, give it a watch. If you want. Or don’t.
It’s a free country, this land I’m living in.
It’s just an invitation for you to enjoy it’s freedom for a moment, I guess.
Welcome to our cabin.
