I realised when I just posted my last post that it’s been a quarter of a year between posts, even more maybe (March to July) that is just not right. I got to blog more often because… well because I have a blog… I don’t know… Blogging is something you are suppose to do, right?

Anyway, what has been going on so far this summer? Short answer: Nothing at all. I’ve been photographing quite a lot and walked quite a lot. I’m still a free man, got no work that I need to go to, which also makes me a poor man. Decided that when I get some rainy days I’ll make a gallery on my web-site and start to try to sell images. It should be possible to sell as fine arts. I also almost started a company in April-May I was on a course in starting your own company and has sorted out mostly everything, made Names, business plans, logos and so on… If the United Snakes of America wouldn’t have destroyed the world economy I probably would have had a photography business now… Everything is on standby though, I can start when the economy gets better, maybe to the fall…

It’s a strange summer we have this year, first it’s cold, with frost in June, then a few weeks of very hot weather, and last night (5-6 July) it was 1.0°c. It would be cool if it raised the temperature a bit now, it’s summer after all… they talk about global warming, how about some local warming…

I’m sitting here on the bed with the laptop on my lap, I guess that’s where laptops are suppose to be, listening to the new Moby album and sipping a a cup of coffee that are getting cold. The Moby album is very good, heard it a few times now and I’m slightly in love with it. I think I’ll go for a long walk tonight, maybe a 20’ish kilometre track… I’ve got new walking shoes a week ago or so, but they are pressing a bit on my upper heal on the right foot, which worries me a bit, I don’t want to ruin my feet now when we are soon to go to the northern Finland on some trekking… I walked 13 km yesterday and the foot didn’t feel very well…

Maybe since I don’t have anything to say, I should stop wasting your time. If there really are anyone reading this. If there are someone reading this why are you reading? Is it for the same reason that I am writing, because you got to blog… It’s quite therapeutic to write randomly like this… You should try it some day… =)

Oh well ow my half empty cup of coffee is defiantly ruined and I can put Moby in the Mp3 player and head out in the night… I promise to write more often!

Yes I know, I haven’t written anything in a really long time. But there haven’t been anything interesting happening in my life lately and I haven’t been in the mood for this sort of things, now I’m so bored that I might just as well…

So where to start? I wonder where I left you… *peaking*… Aah yes the shoes…

I has been around half the country hunting for shoes. First in this town. The range of shoes that are my size (EU 48) and that I like in this town really sucks it’s close to nothing at all, and I need really good trekking shoes course by feet are quite sensitive and getting sore feet is the worst thing. We then went to Kärkkäinen a huge shopping mall about 100 km north of here, over there we found a pair of Meindl boots that fit my foot pretty well but they were high boots  and I’ve never had any high ones before… it might be good since it’s supporting the foot and surely good for wading, they were quite expensive and I didn’t buy them. I bought a monopod that also works as a walking staff thou, that was a good investment i think… When we came home we found an advertisement for Hanwag Alaska, that is supposedly a very good shoe, from another one of those super-malls this time about 100 km south of here. So the next day we woke up bright and early and went to Tuuri, when we got there the largest shoes they had were just big enough to get my feet in them with force, but walking in them would have been absolutely impossible. So we went to Seinäjoki to three different sport stores that just might have my size, but no luck. When we came back home I ordered the shoe I wanted from the net, from a store called “scandinavian outdoor store” in Åbo, I will get them tomorrow. I just really really hope they are fitting now because it was the biggest size available…

So what else… I’ve been working on starting up a company the last weeks, it will be called [CENSORED] and the main idea is that I will [CENSORED]… I just hope that I will get it to work economically, and there are a lot of forms, trademarks, laws and stuff that I don’t really understand… I think that I will have to attend some kind of a “start your own company” course… It’s either start a own company or go look for a job somewhere… And finding a job in the Media is close to impossible at least something that I want to work with…

I’ve been walking a bit lately and also biking… I haven’t prepared any tracks for this post, but I have one laying on the desktop…




This track was from 10th september, I should have more somewhere… If I find them I’ll upload…

It’s been horribly bad weather lately, lead gray skies, no wind, around 7 degrees and just on the edge of starting to rain… I don’t think I’ve seen the sun or the sky for a week and that is starting to get a bit irritating…
