To never have to risk our lives

The photographs were taken on February 4th at Sipoonkorpi National Park.

I walked for over two hours this morning, enjoying the landscape after the snowfall. Within one day the depth of snow increased from 10 cm to 26 cm.

O minutehand, teach me

The photographs were taken on January 30th.

We got wet and heavy snow during the night. I shoveled snow for an hour in the morning. So far this week I have got 8 1/2 hours of exercise, most of it walking.

I can't help following what is happening with Trump and his cohorts. It has been difficult to understand that some people still support Trump, despite all the lies and idiocy. I fear that "give enough rope" can take too long, and damages can be terrible. Fortunately there are good people who continue to #resist.
