Happy Mundane N-O-W

New Year's Eve 2019   The wind was bitterly cold, with a few hardly visible snowflakes, (yet very feel-able) aimed directly at my eyes, as my dog Randy and I walked across a flat, open land to pick up some freebies. We had walked so fast to try and make up for the...

Yoga Studio in Espoo, Kivenlahti

Primitive Skills Yoga Studio opens its doors in the first week of December (Merivirta 11, Kivenlahti).   It has been a rush to get everything sorted with a short notice. Especially at this time of the year. I was sitting here, trying to come up with some kind of...

And it all falls into place

Wow it's been an incredible, ground shifting, confusing, chaotic yet rich and rewarding six months for me. I left UK in August 2018, leaving 16 years of life in that country and all my  dearest friends and all my wonderful customers behind. I traveled in Asia for five...

Acceptance

My Birthday in Can Tho, Vietnam The biggest challenge of my trip over the past months has been learning to let go of my past as an identity and the future as an illusion of control. Each "home" I've settled in, even if they've been a home for just a short while, have...

Mystery

On a journey to the Tea Country, Sri Lanka The fan is turning. Luca is playing the guitar. I look outside through the window and see a lonely, bright red rose and green leaves, a bright blue sky and a morning full of promises of unpredictable things, including the...

India

Rishikesh   I think I love this place so much because it stirs all kinds of emotions in me. It challenges what I'm used to. It puts me face to face with myself. Looking myself in the eyes and see all the things I try to push aside, things I don't like. On one...

The only consistent thing in life is change

The smell of Finnish pine forest.The silence and the slower pace of moving from A to B. Sauna.  There is generally a day or two that I feel like a tourist in my home country, until some senses get reawakened from the deep sleep. Then I feel like I've just...

The Lotus Pose

One of the things I learned in India, was how incredibly useful it is to sit cross-legged. Everything over there is geared up for sitting in this position. I don't remember seeing many chairs anywhere. All the restaurants I ate in had floor cushions and low tables, as...
