First Snow in Tampere...

... fell today, though before too long it turns to sleet and splish-splosh. Usually people wait for summer and feel sad about winter, but for me summer is a drowsy and boring season when nothing happens, and it is only during autumn and winter when my creative energies normally reach their peak. I enjoy the seriousness and, yes, even bleakness of this season. Summer in Finland is like some sort of mistake.
