The silence winter wears

The photographs were taken on February 21st while visiting Timmermalmi nature protection area.

I noticed that Finland was being discussed in the United States, due to our health care system which has been extremely cost-efficient compared to the way health care is organised in the United States. Of course, fairness and value-for-money are not the only criteria in health care, but the proposal put forward by Trump and his minions makes me shudder - massive tax breaks to the richest people, and not taking care of the poor, sick and elderly. I hope nothing like that ever happens here in Finland. Choice is not a choice if one can't afford it.
