BELATED INDEPENDENCE DAY WISHES TO ALL FINNS
It has been an honor to be able to live in Finland for 42 years. Thank you for the beautiful moments in beautiful Finland, 105-year-old Finland!
IN THE PEACE OF THE COUNTRYSIDE
Helsinki is now a life left behind for us. That landscape above is the view from our new home, about 30 km from Helsinki. More snow fell today, which made the landscape magically beautiful. Maybe this year we will have a white Christmas… I really hope so!
Here in the lap of nature, it’s nice and quiet. The connection with nature was born right away in autumn, when I was looking out the window at the birds that came to our bush every day.
One morning I woke up (from the sofa) to a strange noise and wondered where it was coming from. I opened my eyes, and noticed that the great tit was sitting on the handle of the courtyard door, and was knocking on the door. It was the best wake up call ever. This is exactly what Finnishness is at its best!
All Finns, be grateful for independent Finland!
Kunnioita itsenäisyyttä. Ja Talitiainen (is that the right word?)!
If you mean this sentence: ”be grateful for independent Finland!” Finnish translation is: ”Olkaa kiitollisia itsenäisestä Suomesta”. Talitiainen is great tit, that’s right! Really beautiful little bird!
I think I was trying to day something similar to Cherish your independence.
Best wishes, as always.
Oh yes right, I see. Thank you!! 😁 Best wishes to you also!
