“I must go seek some dewdrops here
and hang a pearl from every cowslip’s ear”
(W. Shakespeare / A midsummer night’s dream)
(Loviisa, Finland; June 2013)
Once upon a bright blue morning in June, there was sea, sun, and summer. There were quaint pastel-hued wooden houses and less quaint seagulls. There was a treasure hunt, two days of intense learning, and some very big crabs with the best summer wine.
When the day drew towards its end and even the Nordic summer sun was about to catch a lazy eye, there was a wild chase for the last rays of light, ripping through the swells at a blinding speed. Once upon a bright yellow evening in June.
