Happy Moments in Finland

A calm evening, not even a car anywhere, clouds sailing high up in the sky. Sun shining on the melting stretches of ice. There is just me and my kite gliding from one cloudy pillow to the next.

The soil is warm. The sun shines kindly on me. I am just lazily lying on the ground. And up in the blue there is the happy little kite.

The day of the deep, deep diving into the dark blue sky. There are several kites on the line. We lie in a rowing boat some kilometer from the shore on a calm sea. We have a feeling of being on the bottom of a great pyramid lying in the mud. Up there one kilometer is the top kite. It is barely visible.
