I've dived straight into the heatwave,
good things filling the days.
 Mumford & Sons last weekend -
despite the gigantic arena,
the ambience was intimate & spirited at the same time.
They gave their all,
me & the throngs around joining in,
 body and soul.

We walked back home under the velvety sky
of what felt like the perfect summer's night,
only in May.
A sense of wild
running through the veins
in that moment.
Ever-present in the mind
even for someone
with a family, mortgage, deadlines,
a certain stability
that lacked at a younger age.
Now they complement one another.

Holiday plans shaping up,
Provence beckons around the corner,
a dream of many years. 

Paahteeseen on ollut helppo sukeltaa,
hyviä asioita mahtunut päiviin.
Mumford & Sons viime viikonloppuna -
vaikka jättimäisellä areenalla olikin,
oli tunnelma intiimi & railakas yhtä aikaa. 
Tyypit heittäytyivät täysillä,
minä ja muut mukana.

Kävelimme kotiin samettisessa kesäyössä,
vaikka virallisesti taitaa olla vielä kevät.
Tuli suorastaan vähän villi olo,
sillä tavalla kutkuttavasti.
Se kulkee mukana aina,
pään sisällä,
oli sitten perhettä, asuntolainaa, dediksiä,
tiettyä vakautta,
jota ei nuorempana ollut.
Nyt ne täydentävät toisiaan.

Lomasuunnitelmat lyöty lukkoon,
nurkan takana Provence,
monen vuoden unelma. 



  1. The sculpture is wonderful and I can imagine the thrill of Mumford and Sons. Walking home through a velvety street....I need to do. Summer heat does bring a wildness that sets our hearts free again every year. I look forward to seeing Provence through your eyes because you see the beauty that I am attracted to. xx

    1. Always a joy to get some Seawashed words...
      I think with a lot filling the days,
      those small moments of abandon
      can sometimes be a little too sparse...
      But then they refuel for a long time.
      There is something about summer nights
      & quiet streets,
      the magic of their own.

      I feel so priviledged to be heading
      to that incredibly beautiful part of the world.

      Friday's sneeked upon us again :)
      Wishing you a lovely spring weekend, x


It makes me happy
when you leave a trace

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