Time Out Sunday

Tsundoku. Sums up parts of my life so well. I had it all under control until I stumbled upon a stand that had old books in Spanish for 2€. I am somewhat doubtful I'll read them all, but I just love them. Also, when the salesperson noticed me with all the books, he came to me, gave me a bag and told to take my time. So I also chose some books in English and French (pretentious much). That's book fairs for me, folks. A trap. Not only that, I also love magazines. The copy of Vogue from Italy is my current favourite photo book. I just love love going through magazine stands at airports. But really, my future guests will have endure me showing them some of my favourite things in Vogue Italia no. 817. Also, the H&M dress I bought is in it. I feel very en vogue (har har).

Blue skies have returned (yay!), but they have brought along some serious winter vibes (nay!). So wintery that wearing what I deem a winter coat was not an overkill. (It is extremely unclear when I can wear my autumn clothes, because now we have leaped from warm spring weather into... winter!)

I had taken notes of what I wanna blog about, but then I realised it's winter time and for my body it's like midnight already, so I just do this mobile shots and random ramble update - to have a reason to share Jakko Eino Kalev'is "This World". His record release gig was love. And I am having some home made chocolate chip & oatmeal cookies.


Time Out Sunday

When life hands you nuts hide them and forget about them! (The less known Squirrel Proverb from Seurasaari.)

They know how to work in front of cameras.

Yet after visiting New York all furry running rodents make me a little jumpy. Totally rat-like, n'est pas?!

So yes, this is my animal therapy update. Happy Sunday!


Abbazia di Santa Maria a Cerrate

I have visited a place that does not have a Wikipedia page in the English language. I am really unsure how to continue. Whenever I think of Abbey of Santa Maria di Cerrate I can smell lavender. It didn't smell of lavender there, but it had the same peaceful vibe. Like a lavender. (Really?! Is that what I am going for here?!) Next to Casalabate and Lecce (Puglia, Italy). We found it by chance. The oasis of peace. Which reminds me that I have always had a soft spot for churches in Italy (well, since that one time I went to Rome many moons ago).

Maybe I secretly wish this place shall never get Wiki-famous. Selfishly so. Somewhere out there (it's gonna be so packed with tourists one day).
