SOUTH COAST ASPECTS: SOIL

The smell of wet soil in spring…
or manure?
HD


SOUTH COAST ASPECTS: WATER

This large body of water
waiting for my naked toes
- such naivety!
HD


SOUTH COAST ASPECTS: SMOKE

The wind was pushing the fire front aggressively.
For a while we wondered if there would be a home to return to.
HD


SOUTH COAST ASPECTS: AIR

One of the things I love most about South Coast
is the haze that allows one
to decide if something is or isn’t.

FLOWERS FOR MUM

They may be weeds from my own garden,
Decorated with broken pieces of shell we found,
But in your soiled little hands
they are more amazing than fine roses and pure gems.

CULLUNGHUTTI SUNSET (1)

“Nobody of any real culture, for instance, ever talks nowadays about the beauty of a sunset. Sunsets are quite old-fashioned.“
Oscar Wilde
A sunset is both a goodbye and a birth - but never old fashioned.

EARLY MORNING MIST AT TERARA (1)


As the sun rose
After a cool night
The world was covered in magical mist
As if there had been a mistake
And a sprinkle of snow would have landed in Terrara.

CONNECTED

We all matter.
HD

No man is an island,
Entire of itself,
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thy friend’s
Or of thine own were:
Any man’s death diminishes me,
Because I am involved in mankind,
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee.
JOHN DONNE

LESKENLEHTI
"Widow's leaves" are the first flowers to emerge through the semi frozen ground after a long and hard winter in Finland. Their resilience reminds me of a dedicated parent, a mother who is up when the rest of the world is still frozen in sleep. It would be a mistake to ignore this one.
