I love this light right now. It’s bright, beautiful, pure and slightly magical. There’s something eternal in it. It’s cold outside at the moment and when I take a deep breath of the cold and brisk air it feels like my brains can breathe and new ideas can spring.
January is the time for many of making big promises for the new year. I didn’t make that many really. More like I promised that I’ll try to do my own best when it comes to certain things, like exercising. I’ll go when I can and when I want to. And I believe I’ll want to because of how it makes me feel. I fully endorse the saying that sweat is the gift of the body to the soul.
I did set certain goals for the upcoming year. I’ll try to travel when I can and here I’ll definitely count both big and small trips and adventures. Bookings haven’t been done yet but on the travel wish list are for example doing part of the Archipelago Trail by bike, a road trip to new terrains in Europe and popping in Berlin and Mänttä. Besides travelling I’ll run, by the sea and a marathon in the fall, if all goes well. It will/would be my seventh but crossing the finishing line is never certain and one must be humble before the distance. Or at least I have to be. And starting ice swimming and trying sailing are on the wish/plan list as well. I wish you’ll have a year filled with magical light.
