  • I am a very aware cat, and I move from place to place with speed and agility. I am secretive in this manner. I've had past lives as a black panther and know how to stalk animals, humans, and other beings. I like a challenge. I like the opportunity to sneak up and prey. Part of my nature is to scare and attack. In this sense, I am a balancing act for this family. They are all so light-headed. - I have been a big cat (panther, lion) many times in life. I do not have the tolerance or patience of a house cat. I am most happy roaming, being free. I could tell you some hard lessons about the nature of freedom, ones not all lightheads want to hear.

  • From "Little Lessons for Little Ladies." Harper's Weekly Magazine. August 1851."

    "Fanny Fallal, although she was not rich, nor person of rank, was a very fine lady. She would pass all her time reading novels and working crochet, but would neglect her household duties; so her husband who was a very nice man, and fond of a very nice dinner, became a member of a Club, and used to stop out very late at night, which led to many quarrels. How foolish it was of Fanny to neglect her household duties and not make her Albert happy at home." Source.

  • Invoking Your name

    does not help me to see You.

    I'm blinded by the light of Your face.

    Longing for your lips

    does not bring them any closer.

    What veils You from me

    is my memory of You.

  • "A human being is a part of the whole called by us 'Universe', a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." - Albert Einstein.

    March 11, 2009

  • I see. What it comes to male genitalia, I invented a word for it myself, when I was a kid. I grew up with my grandparents, and when we were in the (smoke) sauna -- the whole family goes to sauna in Finland, (at least in the old days they did, I think there is a law against it these days, or something, but..) anyway, my word was pötö. And like that was not enough, I sometimes tried to grab it and said: Pötö away! Pötö away! Poor grandfather. That word means absolutely nothing and this is the first time I say it aloud in decades. Wow.

  • BTW: The goldfish are not silent, pregnant or not. Two quotes from the animal communication group at Facebook:Goldfish are surprisingly chatty! Whenever we head to Walmart, I stop to talk with the fish. The goldfish are all so talkative and giddy. So are our golden dojo loaches and the irridescent sharks. -- I had two golden dojo's, they were amazing! I loved sitting in front of the aquarium and talk to them for hours. They were truly wonderful to speak with. I had a gold fish that lived for over 8 years, he was very talkative as well." Things are not always as they seem to be.

  • You have found the meaning of life. The pure essence of humanity! (I agree. I could tattoo that message on those pics on my forehead most of my mornings.)

  • Does this remind us of somebody? ;-)

    Forgive me, I've been wanting to post a few comments on your blog but for the life of me can't manage to do it. Just let me say here it's thoughtfulness is both striking and entertaining.

  • Lea,

    what's the name of Mr. Clean in Finland? If it's different from those listed here, can you add it?

    March 29, 2009

  • Ah, so these are cloudberries! Thanks for the explanation. Mmm, berries :-)

    March 18, 2009

  • The berries are "cloudberries". (Lakka | muurain.) Quite expensive ones, they are common on the northen swamps, but you can find them in the southen part of Finland as well.. Some people think cloudberry liquer is nectar of The Gods, but I personally hate it. I think I am blue(and rasp)berry person myself. -- And strawberry. I grew up in a place called Strawberry Hill.

    March 18, 2009

  • Lea Lea! I received a postcard today from Finland with some kind of orange berries pictured. All the card says about the picture is 'lakkoja rasiassa'. Can you please tell me what kind of berries they are?

  • That would be great on a toast.
