In Finland. The time has come, finally, for me to start work. And it has started. These were my plans. My sketches, my ideas:
This is the reality, the now, working on these ideas:
The weather has been good, hardly any rain, mild, mostly sunny – mosquitos and midges are the only nuisance. And my failing muscles, but I am expecting some improvement on that front over the summer.
I have felt guilty for not being able to write this blog on a daily basis, but there are so many things to think about, so many things to do, that in the end of the day, writing a piece of anything is the last thing on my mind. However, I shall try. Because it’s good for me. It’s good to think, reflect, take a step back, find a perspective.
Next week I will return to London for two weeks and immerse myself in my art once again. I miss my life in London, even though I thoroughly enjoy my time in the forest. But as I already knew, my heart is in two places, maybe, my heart has no particular place, it is a traveller by heart. I suspect many of us have a similar dilemma, challenge or a blessing, however one wants to see it.
I am so very grateful to my parents and my family and everyone who is helping and supporting me with this project – it is my dream but it is not a dream I can achieve on my own. Some days, I admit I cannot see the cottage in my mind’s eye and wonder what the hell am I doing here. But most days, I can see it – and feel it. I am getting there…. it is a journey after all. I shall be back here soon, very soon……. 🙂
