On a dreary day of November, I hopped on a train and one hour later, I found myself in the crowded Helsinki.
I’ve been waiting for this day for so long and I wasn’t even sure that I will make it in time for the Don Rosa meeting but I did!
One cup of tea later and suddenly one of the women who work at the book store (Suomalainen Kirjakauppa) was announcing that Don Rosa has arrived half an hour earlier so we should get in line, purchase the book and automatically we will get a ticket to go and meet the author and illustrator of the stories about Scrooge McDuck, etc.
I felt again like a kid listening to his pleasant voice explaining to me the artwork and other details that he did for Tuomas Holopainen‘s solo album. Later on while I was watching the videos from the meeting, I noticed that my facial expression was like a hyper excited kid’s expression. Just how I actually look when I watch any Disney movie.
The meeting was worth the trip! And now I sit in front of this writing device (aka laptop) and wonder, what would life be without art? Without all these magical things that come out of every artist’s hands?
But I know that all I wanna do in life is ART. Oh! And I don’t wanna grow up. E V E R .
I almost forgot how wonderful it feels to spend time in nature doing some…”unusual” things like drinking something from a fancy glass or eating Easter eggs 😀 I just did it on the 1st day of Easter, grabbed my tripod and some “snack” and off I went into the woods and I must say that I froze up. Never trust the Finnish sun!
A little adventure never killed anyone!
Before you ask, the choker is from Asos and I’m stunned by its beauty! 😍
Often I feel the urge to go for a walk into the forest, rest on a stone or somewhere on a big tree root and just listen to the nature. From there I get all the inspiration and also by watching people or listening to their stories.
Sometimes I wonder how is to be the only tree on a distant valley, how lonesome can you feel during winter when no songs are coming out from the tree houses, how silent and neverending days can seem to be when no one is stopping by to tell you the grief or the happiness they are going through. And just watching the little ants coming from one place to another in such a hurry…I wonder what kind of wichcraft are they planning to do. I just look around and wonder..and wonder…
A year and almost two months have passed since I moved to Finland and I still am curious to find out more, to learn more and most of the things still seem new to me. But the little forest behind our building is my escape. Nature is my escape. It’s my inspiration for the music I make. The place where I can rest and let go of all the negativity or pointless drama.
I feel blessed to be able to write a few thoughts from the lap of the nature!
And I was planning for weeks to take this blog to the next level, so get ready to hear and see more from me! From ootd posts, music, adventures, to make-up, hairstyles, product reviews and girly stuff. Also YouTube will explode hopefully soon but until then I have to fix up some things. I’m still filming and taking photographs here and there and making plans for my readers in my agenda 😉
