Often life seems complicated. Then one must try to find beauty in the complexity. Repeating patterns, random details or funny coincidences. They are there.

Regular human comprehension is rather shallow. What we see and think is merely the surface. Just ripples on the water. Is there a way to get deeper?

On the Rock

July 16th 2018 by araukara

Six decades ago even the rock scratchers had both artistic talent and patience. Hurray for Waldemar and Kaarina!

Noticing Funny

July 4th 2018 by runekani

There are lots of funny things around. The skill is to notice them. Even in people and society. 

A Walk in the Forest

June 15th 2018 by araukara

A walk in the forest is a refreshing experience. But be careful not to stare at the devastation areas caused by forest industry for too long. Concentrate on the beauty of unspoiled nature.

Many names it has. Serenity, tranquility, peace, calmness. And many faces. Here’s one of them. 

Fan Time

April 28th 2018 by araukara

We quarrel on this and that, but in critical circumstances it always comes to the question:

where were you when the shit hit the fan?

Let's hope you were around doing something useful. Anything. And not being one of those self-centred non-entities.

Magic of Fire

April 18th 2018 by avokado

The thrill of wood burning in the fireplace is as old as human civilisation. Lighting the fire is participating in ancient routines, and staring at it is pure meditation. Not to mention frying sausage on it.

Mist covers views so often. But future is different. Usually it’s totally out of sight. Only on rare occasions of intuition it’s only misty.

Spring Cleaning

April 12th 2018 by runekani

Mind reflects the surroundings. So cleaning up the house and garage builds basis for meditation. It’s an easy task but yet necessary.

Meditation itself requires more effort. And we need all the help we can get. 

Retreating Snow

April 10th 2018 by avokado

In April the snow is bound to melt sooner or later. On this spot there’ll be sailing boats that are being loaded with all the necessary equipment from winter stores. Oh, the hope.

Elegance in Ordinary

April 7th 2018 by avokado

A visit to a pizzeria can an aesthetic experience. The roundness of pizza reminds of peace of mind and the balanced aroma of art.

The most exciting part of a regular working day is the lunch. So plan it carefully.

no hurrying with sacred

Find a place where the food is healthy and delicious, and reserve enough time. No hurrying with sacred things.

Almost Easter

March 31st 2018 by araukara

Tomorrow it’s Easter. So the spring is nearer than when we last met. Finally.


March 29th 2018 by runekani

Things proceed as they do. Time rolls on, experience accumulates and all the unnoticed currents of incidents flow to the direction they do.

decisive movements on ants' paths

We can pretend to stop or move, but the planet rotates on her path and so do we. We appear to get ideas and make plans, but at its best our orientation resembles decisive movements on ants' paths.

Relaxing thought, eh?

Spring Fruits

- As you can see, it’s spring already. The long awaited and almost forgotten. 

- You wish. 

Tech Beauty

February 27th 2018 by araukara

Our technical environment is expanding all the time. Luckily beauty can be found there too. 

We have a challenge of both seeing and creating beauty. Let's face it.

Saw a tulip in the snow
she smiled and told me
to get my coat
or I would freeze
for the winter
was not over yet. 


January 5th 2018 by runekani

Write your testimony
in obsolete language
with non-excisting letters

write it on pine bark
with lukewarm water
using a bucket as a pen

shout it out while diving
on a deserted coast
near a village long ago forgotten

whisper it to everyone's ear
when everyone's deaf and dead
and buried in the dust of time.

Then turn around
and we'll shake hands
and stare each other in the eye.

New Year

January 1st 2018 by avokado

Calendar is based on random dates and so on. But anyway it’s great to see the big wheel turning. So happy New Year to everyone! Let’s make 2018 a great one.

In the moments of sadness I feel that the Earth is for steady workers and freaks. And I'm neither one. I wish this all wouldn't function as rationally as it seems. 'Cause abundant rationality is sad.

abundant rationality is sad

I'd call for more imagination in reality. Irrational details. Unexpected events. Having the power I'd make the Earth a softer place. More like misty dreams.

So that's a call for art? But getting ...

Winter Colours

December 13th 2017 by avokado

For me the winter is rather difficult. The lack of warmth and light is hard on the mind.

endless variety of greys 

Perhaps concentrating on colours might help. The winter offers endless variety of greys. And greyish greens and greyish browns, not to mention greyish whites.

The colours of the winter mind.

Fruit Glyphs

December 13th 2017 by runekani

Peculiar how nature writes ancient glyphs and hides them for an open minded to find.
