Today we had a short walk by the Turku Art Museum. There is a small V. I. Lenin's statue. He is heading his eyes eastwards, down to the market place and over the River Aura. It is about seven hours trip by train from Turku to St. Petersburg, ex. Leningrad.

Comrades !

Sleepy snowy winds

Yesterday I visited Helsinki again, this time by an Express Bus. Two hours sitting. Tried to read some haiku; slightly the misty morning woke up into a dim light. Mist. Soft.

snowy winds
still sleeping

I visited Helsinki and returned yesterday. The train arrived as planned by the Time Table. This time. Turku is westwards from Helsinki.

To the west!

(Published today in Taro Kunugi's Facebook as my comment.)

This weekend we have got some rain. Plain water. +2 Celcius. This winter's beginning so early (in November already!)was one of the coldest I do remember. And usually winter begins here in January, (as today), and February is the usually the coldest month. (In March the sun is getting higher and is able to warm during lenghtenig daytime.) Let's see what is going on in near future.

Here is my own car:

A happy car
sheltered by soft snow --
peaceful January!
