50 things that make me happy
Walking. Running. Swimming. Cooking. Knitting.
Traveling. Hiking. Big cities. Really small towns. Cozy cafés.
Hotel breakfasts. Bathtubs. Somebody cleaning the room for me. Sleeping in. Arriving at a new place.
Talking with people. Talking to people. Learning a foreign language. Learning a new Finnish word. Dialects.
Concerts that start early. Concerts with good sound technicians. Dancing people. Dancing with people. Drinking really cold water.
Tsuumi Sound System. Paul Simon. Pizzicato Five. Rachmaninov’s Cello Sonata in G minor. Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät.
Free evenings with nothing to do. Being with my love. Making pasta. Sugared ginger slices. Looking out of the bedroom window and seeing our aspen against the sky.

Dr. Martens boots. Wasabi. Spring. Autumn. Life.
