Twenty-Eighteen

This was quite something. Thinking about it and going over last year’s events, I’m not quite sure how all of it ever fit into one year. As I’m writing this, I’m sitting on a red couch with a piano nearby while the wind is blowing outside, I just had some tea and mini pizzas, and,… Continue reading Twenty-Eighteen

Eleven rainbows: Melbourne in Winter 2017

This is a diary of my time in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, containing musings, thoughts, notes written down in June and July 2017. Edited in August 2017 and February 2018. The number of rainbows is true and something else; everything else is as true as you need it to be.  Day 1 A bird on a… Continue reading Eleven rainbows: Melbourne in Winter 2017

March 2017

Let’s not think about that, maybe), we’re officially back on track with a look back at March.

Preamble Still the rush of an intense day and a stressful trip to the airport inside of me (one of those times when you don’t know if you’ll make it in time), I sit back… Continue reading Patches of Light: Helsinki in December

12 Days of Summer – Melbourne in November 2016

Observations, music, thoughts, notes, written down under over the course of 12 days in November & December 2016 while meandering through Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Jetlag, maybe, and something about cloves When abroad, my general rule is: everything that’s within a distance I can walk, I will walk. So I walk to the place I want to… Continue reading 12 Days of Summer – Melbourne in November 2016

On Friendship

It’s just past 10pm, the temperature outside is 6°C, and it’s been raining a… Continue reading On Friendship
