What is your favorite holiday? Why is it your favorite?

S U M M E R .. H O L I D A Y !

Why summer holiday? Oh c’mon! I’ve born In the darkest time of the year and also the coldest time of the year.

Location is quite cold also.

Living on the North side of the Arctic circle makes you love sun and summertime.

There is so many things what you can do, when you are having the midnight sun and endless possibilities outdoors.

Summer activities are my favorite things to do and summer holiday is the time to enjoy them.
On the spot.
Shopping from river.
On the rocks.
Fishing at summertime is so relaxing and therapeutic for the restless mind of mine.
You can be hours in the river, even without the catch.
Sure you might get hungry in the process, but it’s okay to have little fasting… it keeps you motivated for the activity.

Again for all you “save the fish” hippies out there, I’m taking only what I eat, it’s not sport for me.

Like in heading image, scenery of this planet makes you come back again and again.

How can you not to enjoy scenery, which looks like a laptop screensaver?

When the summer is ending and midnight sun is gone, we have dark nights, but mostly warm nights.
Perfect for the festival overdose!
Live music and people around the festival area is so energizing that it keeps you wanting more, every year.

There was a small cap with festivals, well because of the Covid-19, but it’s old fainted memory already.
No more social distance in the live happenings.

Long story short, summer holiday is my favorite because these and many more reasons.

I walk bare feet at summertime and I do go swimming in the river, every single day, no matter how cold it gets, it’s summer!

Daily prompt!

Drawing, question

When do you feel most productive?

“Boho wagon”
I know the answer!!!

Every single time when I’m enjoying myself.

- If I’m just sitting on the bench, feet in the river just wondering.

- The moment when I’m hanging around with my “boho wagon”

- Magical hours when I should go to sleep.

-Those moments when you are canoeing in the river and there ain’t no escape.

All you fish cruelty Karen’s out there, in my world it’s food.
“Boho canoe”
It’s weird how you could be most productive, in the moments where you should not.

Perhaps my brains see the opening and activate creativity in me in those specific moments.

The absolute worst time for the inspiration is the golden moment before sleep. That is the main reason why I don’t sleep much. Normal night for me is 4-5 hours sleep, but I sleep so deep that I barely move. It’s like a coma when I’min the REM-stage.

Inspiration moves hand to hand with productivity in my case.

I’m like those nocturnal creatures. At the night time when everyone is sleeping, I’m doing many things.

This has always been the “normal” to me.
Of course M.D’s have their concerns, but I have lived like this for so long time. Perhaps on the older days I’m starting to have a naps, someone told me that’s what the elders do.

Hmm… Makes you thinking…

Question of the day..?

Drawing, prompt, question

How do you unwind after a demanding day?

Hear me hear me!!! I have a method!!

Unwinding the day needs many steps.
I have noticed that every day might be different, but unwind method won’t have to be.

Running and going toy the gym works sometimes, but the best way is going to the secret place.

I have my “hiding spot” plain sight, in the corner of the room.

It’s called the “activity corner”

Yup, it’s not so secret and hidden yet, but after I buy my first “Wayne-Mansion” I’m definitely building book shelf with a secret entrance..
Activity corner
In the corner, there is many things to concentrate.

Here is few for example:

• Guitars (electric and acoustic)
• Jew harp
• Rythm egg/ cacixi
• PlayStation controller
• pencils and notebooks
• lots of paper (for drawing)
• music headphones
• knitting equipment
• many different scissors
• glue and stuff for scrapbooking
• Camera and action camera
• magazines

Activity corner must be ready for every kind of situation.

You never know what you want to do when trying to unwind the day.

Of course music has big part of my process and I couldn’t even imagine unwinding the day without music.

Singing helps too, but I think my vocals are so bad that everyone around me need unwind method after hearing me sing.

Have to admit, my corner looks like a place where serial killer is lurking and planning the next horrible act of violence.

After all, it’s my corner and my method so who cares?

I know I won’t.

Try it, give it a chance.

Perhaps you’ll find your own lurking little psycho… but be careful, you might like it.

daily question, question

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

In the middle of the nowhere!

Yes, that’s my plan.
I’m also quite sure that I have got my “breakthrough” in my artistic career.

Not quite sure how, but mark my words.. I want it!

Why in the middle of the nowhere you might ask?

Well I have dreamt about the cabin where I could do my art and enjoy the silence.

Maybe sitting on the dock playing my guitar and dreaming for upcoming challenges.

After ten years my kids have probably gone to seek their own paths and I have to think something to entertain myself.

I’m not sure, am I working anymore at that point, because I want to believe that I don’t have to anymore.

daily question, Drawing, prompt, question

If you could be a character from a book or film, who would you be? Why?

ANGUS MacGyver that’s my final answer!!

You wanna know why?
Think about it, here was working or not working for some shady weird organization.

He is a kinda secret agent with a difference.

He is quiet, mild mannered, deeply principled and refuses to carry a gun on his missions.

Fortunately, the last detail is unimportant when compared to his astounding mind.

Drawing on a vast practical knowledge of science,

Macgyver is able to make use of any mundane materials around him to create unorthodox solutions to any problem he faces.

The enemies of world peace and justice continually learn that underestimating this man is a fatal mistake for their plans.


You would have the adventures of a secret Agent, while not being an actual agent and you would be armed with almost infinite scientific resourcefulness.

I would also carry The Desert Eagle with that pocket knife.

charity, daily question, question

How would you improve your community?

Anything..? Okay..

I would rent a place from the center of the city and create “community leftover center”

Easter is great example.

You are going on short vacation and there is few yoghurt and one carton of milk in the fridge.
There is also a half bag of cereal and rice for maybe two person.
Three eggs, half used butter and cream.

Oh it would be so handy, if there would be place in the community, where you could drop your, still good food before you leave on the vacation.

Normally all these go to the garbage, or for your neighbor.

On the other side, you would have a place where to get cup of sugar, few eggs or decent meal.

Food loss is big problem around here, but so is price of the food. (Thanks politics)

Maybe community fridge/freezer/dry shelf sounds a great idea, but you’ll need the place and money for rent and someone to do it…
Voluntary work, work party and stuff like that is slowly fading away from the world.
Every place you’ll need cash.

Helping hands and shelters are not quite popular in here, I think that mostly because of the “side effects” of the happening like this..
You know, people in need, suffering..

Who wanted to see those when you’re sipping your coffee from Starbucks.

daily question, poll, prompt, question

If you could have something named after you, what would it be?


Think what you want, that would be awesomeness!!

I probably wouldn’t be a beach in the sunny places.

More likely a swamp or small lake next to a peaceful cottage in the middle of nowhere..
Hidden paradise
Those rare encounters with humans or wildlife would be special and the name of the place, “Swamp of Mr. Jay” or “the great lake of the Jay“ It would be something special to remember from your retreat or journey.

All the delicious cloudberries and cranberries what you would find from the swamp, and those ancient forests surrounding the area, would offer you some delicious mushroom and herbs to enjoy.

Every creature who ever encountered the lake, would have own great stories about the great lurking monster catches from the depths of the lake.

Water also would be fresh and so clean that you’ve could drink it.

After a long day, you and all the wildlife would stop in the same spot.

Calming phenomenal beach, inside the paradise.
