The map of the world is an orphanage

On February 20th there was a little bit of fresh snow on the ground, and I walked for two hours in the north parts of Luukki, south of lake Saarijärvi. The fresh snow painted the ground evenly white, but this look lasted only a little while. There were no tracks made by other people since the showfall in the forest, so I felt that this was fresh territory to explore.

Today I have been thinking about the situation in Ukraine, but one should be a psychiatrist to make sense of what is being planned.

(Posting title is from the poem The Map of the World Confused with Its Territory by Susan Stewart.)
