Sixth year of blogging

It is six years since my first blog post. Nowadays I might not be posting as frequently as I did in the earlier years. But I have had no thought about quitting - no, on the contrary writing the blog has become a habit. So, more or less frequent blog posts are going to continue =)

Also, I think I'll be doing the daily picture thing for the year 2019.

Well, but for today just a short diary-like entry. I remember working long days and full weeks until the Winter Solstice. Then a group of friends came for a visit, and they brought loads of food and a warm sense of a peace. They gave me a set of high-quality kitchen knives as a present. I like everyday items - from now on a simple chore of cutting vegetables will always make me remember the warmth, love and care of my friends.

So, it has been some peaceful days. I think the essential gets summed in this small memory; It was an unhurried evening. The room was cozily warmed by a fire burning in the stove. There was a LP playing on the turntable. A friend was reading a Corto Maltese album, I sat on the sofa slowly sipping some red wine. I thought to myself that this is pretty much the kind of life I've wanted to live.

Thanks for the update.

Hey there Erkka! I've always liked following your picture of the day series when you did it, it's fun to see some of your day-to-day routine, and how it differs from mine, so I'm looking forward to next years'! =)

So happy for you my friend, hope one time to have such a life myself.

Hello, and thanks for the comments!

As always, I wish my writings inspire others to keep on believing in their dreams =)

Right now I'm immersed into making a Raspberry Pi to live-stream video to a web-page. It's been an interesting project, and an opportunity to learn new things. I don't know, but maybe I could write a few lines about the process, once I get it working.

I love those simple memories. Your blog a real joy to read, so I'm so happy to hear it will continue! All the best wishes for 2019! And I look forward to the next time we speak.


I have a feeling that speaking with you is going to make my 2019 a lot better than it would otherwise be =)
