Sent back to life as a bird

A week ago I walked for 4 1/2 hours in the Kytäjä-Usmi forests and swamps. At the Kytäjä parking place by the south edge of the forests there was a bird nest box, or in fact several nest boxes build on top of each other, and birds were busy feeding the young. I think I'll visit the place again this summer, even though it takes 50 minutes by car to get there.

Yesterday I went with the children to watch a fire, which is a Finnish tradition on Midsummer's Eve. It was clouded, and there was some rain during the evening, but luckily that stopped and we didn't get wet.

(Posting title is from the poem Nest by Marianne Boruch.)
