This blue marble

Small Ships’ Race

While the Tall Ships’ Race visited Helsinki, Small Ships’ Race was held in Loviisa. Some won. Others capsized. I had ice cream.

At night there was a party on the landing and everybody who was somebody knew everybody else. How estranged I felt when I knew almost nobody and everybody thought they knew me since my family are long-time locals, save my generation.

What a random and delightful day, just like the best summer memories always are.

(Loviisa, Finland; July 2013)
