Havana - cuba - 2017
this reminds me of the game, snakes and ladders. a fun fact: the board game, today called snakes and ladders, originated in ancient india, where it was known with the name mokshapat or moksha patamu. it's not exactly known when or who invented it, though it's believed the game was played at a time as early as 2nd century bc.

While having a sore foot from a bone bruise and not being able to walk too much on the streets of l.a., i'll post some old photos.
lake kaituri, 2017

this photo was taken at lake kaituri, in my ancestral savonian land in finland where my grandparents lived.

last year my grandparents died. now their lands have been sold, their old farmhouse was sold and the sauna cottage by the lake was sold. it's like my homeland will never feel the same.

i will always miss my grandparents. i miss also the genuine finnish sauna they had by the lake. wherever i may have roamed, they welcomed me back with open arms and open hearts and heated up the sauna. it was a deep, relaxing, ritualistic experience with the soft but warm “löyly” embracing one's body, the steam coming from the wood burning stove when water was thrown on the hot rocks.

in proto-finno-ugric language "lewle" means “spirit, soul”. if attentive, one can sense the presence of the spirit of the sauna and it can be a soul cleansing experience.

lake kaituri's tranquility, the chilly water and the silence of the woods surrounding, i miss it all.
this is a portrait of my husband. i'm grateful he got to meet my grandparents, experience the sauna and have a dip in the cold lake.
