Once upon a time there was light in my life

The photographs were taken on July 29th in London.

I felt bad today, due to nasty (and racist) Finnish men making threats towards brilliant women on Twitter and Facebook. To cope with my rotten feelings, I made a donation to the Disaster Relief Fund of the Finnish Red Cross. Afterwards I realized it is two months since I last donated my daily wage to the Red Cross. The June donation was inspired by racists as well.

The people in this world

The photographs were taken in Helsinki on July 24th.

I'm afraid to check what has happened today with Trump and his minions. To see and hear nazis and other racist cowards walk in the streets makes one puke.

After you systematically destroy machismo you must

The photographs were taken at Ruotsinkylä on July 24th.

This morning I walked for 2 1/4 ours at Vaakkoi, circling around the swamps, eating blueberries and some cloudberries (which were a bit overripe). On the way home it started to rain heavily.
