009/2011 rain

Living on the coast, you’ve got to be prepared for quickly changing weather. This morning it was plus degrees, and pouring with rain. Snow on the conifer bush in front of our house had melted into droplets of water, which turned out quite strange in this picture. They almost look solid!

I’ve been helping my daughter pack today – she’ll go back to her university in Scotland tomorrow. I will also go back to school. A lovely holiday is over. Time for good-byes yet again. An old quote from an old favourite film (Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner) comes to mind:

All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain…

006/2011 last day of christmas

006/2011 last day of christmas, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Epiphany is called ‘loppiainen’ in Finnish. It derives from the word ‘loppu’, which means ‘the end’. It’s the end of the Christmas season. Soon these warm, welcoming lights will disappear from our yard, and it’s back to everyday life again.

I love the atmosphere all the Christmas lights create, both in and outside the house. There are moments, after all the rush of getting there is over, when I almost believe in the old song lyrics: “! wish it could be Christmas every day”! But luckily, it is just a mad, momentary feeling. Holidays and special occasions are special just because they are not repeated every day.

Till next Christmas then, lights!
