Unbelievable! The summer is over, fall is coming and I haven’t written for ages. Summer in Helsinki is a very busy time for tour guides, with cruise ships every day, bus tours on their way to or from the North Cape and precious sunshine to be enjoyed at the lake- or seashore. Now I want to make a new start. Fall is a quiet time especially in nature. Lakes in Finland can be quiet any time during the year. But they are especially quiet in the fall. Still. Melancholic. The heat of the summer still lingering on, but already foreboding is the darkness and cold of the winter. Time to guard against loneliness. Writing again.
