SPICES & PLUMES
















The fragrance of cardamon and star anise 

wafting from the kitchen,

slow morning coffees with my camera,

quiet walk around the graveyard 

lit by candles against the dark sky,

dear ones around our table,

a snowless landscape abundant with hues and aromas. 


**

Keittiöstä tulvahtava kardemumman ja tähtianiksen tuoksu,

hitaat aamukahvit kameran kanssa,

hiljainen kävely kynttilöiden valaisemalla hautausmaalla,

rakkaita pöydän ääressä,

lumeton maisema tulvillansa sävyjä ja tuoksuja.

    1. Thank you tinajo for saying so
      - I know people complain about the dark a lot this time of year,
      but you also end up cherishing those fleeting moments when it's light
      and appreciating the delicate nuances…
      And now it's officially getting lighter anyway, yay :)

    1. Kieltämättä varsinkin nyt vuoden alussa
      on kova hinku taas karsia ja selkeyttää,
      riisua pois kaikki turha.
      Luoda tilaa hengittää ja antaa uusien kujeidn tulla.

    1. Smiles right back at ya lovely michele
      - I sort of liked the surprise element in that picture, too,
      as something in the background turned to into a little bit of glitter
      by accident :)

It makes me happy
when you leave a trace

- whether it's a single word
or you scribble all over.
