BLOGGING BREAK –

I’LL BE BACK IN SEPTEMBER!

We’ll move from a flat in Helsinki, Finland to a small house in Espoo

(a city next to Helsinki,

26 mins by bus to Helsinki city center).

We wanted to have our own backyard,

a private place to bbq, sunbathe… just be.

 

 

Have a great end of this summer!

I try to sketch, just relax and let it go…

Not easy because I’m a control freak but this kind of painting feels really good!

 

 

 

 

We have thousands of international visitors in Helsinki right now.

On Thursday I was watching on television how joy and happiness

can glue people together – doing the show and watching it on tv.

I felt so good listening ‘be there’ and see people moving and

enjoying! That was (is) COOL!

 

Thank you  ‘The World Gymnaestrada 2015 Helsinki’

you moved me (too)!

I had an eye control today. There’s still a tiny, tiny ‘drop’. Hopefully it goes away and

 

my sight will get totally sharp with time. No glasses needed but good light yes.

 

Next control is in August.

 

Some time ago I sketched this very quickly to remember what a saw –

so many bubbles around me…
