Misty days are alternating with clear days with harsh winds.
It is smelling like snow, but we did not have snow yet.


*Turning leaf

{Music: Infra 5 – Max Richter}

This composition of Max Richter
creates the weirdest feelings in me.
A mixture of tension and absolute surrender,
sadness and deep joy at the same time.
A feeling of letting everything behind you,
a silent death or birth.
Tragically and comforting at once.


*another world

"There is another world, but it is inside this one."
Paul √Čluard


*Cosmea magic

{Music: The things I say – Joanna Newsom}

This year I grew cosmea flowers.
I always admired them when I saw them in other gardens.
I did not expect them to grow that rampant,
in the end they overran the whole garden bed.


*misty world


When they are full of tiny water drops
reflecting the mild light of a misty fall morning
they appear like a true masterpiece to me.
Pure, transient perfection.



{Music: Which will – Nick Drake}


*Apples and shiny grasses

{Music: La mer la terre – Ira Mimosa}

My father is the sea,
my mother the earth.
I am the bird,
I live in the sky.



Giant parasol mushrooms
and one dead deer.


*October light

I love how the light is changing in the seasons.
The later the year, the lower the position of the sun
and the more the sun comes actually into the rooms of our home.

Everyday the leaves of our birches turn a little more yellow,
and soon no leaf will be left on the fine black branches.

My dear old neighbor lady passed away.
I can feel her presence with me since.

As always there is so much I would like to say,
but my words are stuck. I wonder if that knot is ever loosening.

Have a cozy Halloween!
