Somewhere in Tampere

She's Exploring, 2010

I have found the most inviting space. I would like to tell you that it is inside my own head. That would be sort of beautiful. I do enjoy journeys through the mind, especially in written form. They might even be preferred to reading dialogue. But no, this space is not mine. It is a place I visit. It is not around the bend, beneath a shade tree, or beside a brook. It is in a place called Tampere. I'm not sure how I found it, as is so often the case. It is a beautiful, quiet, and gentle place. The pace is that of a small fox treading lightly on the land, leaving faint and delicate paw prints.

  4. I frequently think "it's like they're inside my own head" when I read or admire an especially evocative piece of writing or art.

    Don't you love that? Thanks for sharing it...

  11. I had to look deeply into the photo to see the actual forms -- ladybug, twig, water. Even before that, the overall effect -- shapes, subtle colors, bending of light -- creates the kind of inviting space you write about. Lovely.
