The colours of the autumn leaves really shone beautifully when backlit by the morning sun. Mornings are damp and crisp now. Won’t be long before the first night frosts, I think.

The title is the name for a storytelling festival taking place this week. Tonight I attended a Scandinavian storytelling contest. All the five Scandinavian languages were represented, and it was fun to try and get the story, without actually understanding many of the words. I can just about follow Swedish but Norwegian, Icelandic, and especially Danish are hard, almost impossible for me.
The venue was an old bar in town, with these multicoloured retro lamps. Good setting for the colourful, multilingual event!
Transparent glass may turn into blurry, distorted reflections in certain light. The same happened to my thoughts today. Trying to sit down and start planning school work for next year, I just couldn’t see clearly enough to formulate even one realistic or meaningful goal. Got to start focusing, and gradually shifting the holiday mindset.
Longest day of the year, and then we’ll turn towards winter again! It’s really the glass half full / half empty situation again. My holiday has hardly begun, and the thought of winter already enters my mind!
These soft and delicately green weeds, obstinaely pushing through the pebbles on the beach, were swaying invitingly in the seaside wind as I walked past. The evening sun shed warm light on them, while casting dark shadows on the stones. The English longest day was considerably shorter than the Finnish one – it got dark before 10pm here. Compare that to my Finnish photo from last year.
