Subtle Sunday

It’s official, it’s here – summer, that is. And I’m absolutely zonked out. No, not from alcohol consumption (not that it’s in short supply) but from cultural activities already underway and the crazy nightless nights. You see, I live in a cultural hub – Tampere, and the sunny weather has a way of tempting even hermits to go out and play.

Some of my blogger friends are aware that I have a tendency to disappear from Blogville during summer months. There’s just too much to do outside. But I will pop by now and again to catch up on your blogs.

Happy Summer (or winter down South)…

What a hat demands?

A lot. Thankfully, I love role-playing. Somedays I pretend to be a poet. Alone in the house, wearing a poet’s hat I recite words before the mirror. Satisfied with myself, I saunter out the front door in search of a nightingale. But only to find neighbours – the curious lot, lingering outside my door pretending to be walking past. They probably think, I’m as mad as a hatter.

Trees – All Kinds

I live and walk among trees. I talk, listen and even hug them. So, this week’s theme is a bit of a challenge as I’d have liked to present all kinds – impossible! Instead I decided to stick with the rhyming ones.

Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth…” – Hermann Hesse
