Walking along a mountain ridge. That’s how I feel my next months in Finnland are going to be. There will be ups. There will be downs. There will be exhausting moments. There will be relaxed moments. There will be moments I am missing home and my girl. And there will be moments I am enjoying life not thinking much about it at all.

But one things for sure. It’s going to be an amazing experience. Like any ridge I have climbed. You look back on it with a grin on your face.

The small things.
In the eye of the beholder.
Are the things that flourish.
That make a scene.
Unlike any other.
Make it huge.
Make it impactful.
Make it different.
In a split of second.
They appear.
And disappear. 
Forever.

We are surrounded.
By beauty. By elegance.
Period. 
Sometimes we forget about it.
About the beautiful clouds.
About the beautiful roads.
About the beautiful leafs.
We limit our view.
Focusing on what’s in front.
Not looking around.
But when we do look around.
We fade.
In astonishment.

moments 
A soft clicking sound and the voices of two old man contemplating life. A bird noise here and there. That’s all whats left to hear. The men had deep voices. Reminding me of my grand father and how much fun I had listening to all the life lessons he wanted me to know about. There is a small tear running down my face thinking about it. A tear of happiness. As it’s slowly leaving my face and dripping into the water I realize.

It’s about the small moments. The small moments we don’t appreciate in our everyday lives. Small moments of thinking, caring, enjoying, loving and reflecting. That’s it! With a grin on my face I pack up my bag, give the reflection on the lake one more look and start running home.

In awareness of all the little beautiful things surrounding me.

From yellow to blue.
From lake to mountain.
From grass to stone.
From hectic to calm.
From inhuman to human.
From brutal to gentle.
From undetermined to determined.
From someone else to yourself.

That’s what being up there feels like for me.

Flying high above.
Is where I noticed.
A loss of weight.
Unbounded freedom.
Flows through my.
Body and soul.
In harmony.

The fog.
Precariously it flows.
Twining around the rock.
Nestling down the cracks.
Heavy but clean.
With all its power.
Swallowing the sun.
The mighty peaks. 
Challenged.
Silently fighting the mist.
The air. The stone.
Immersed.

On the ridge.
Is where I found.
A true connection. 
To myself.
To the moment.
The moment of.
Being exposed.
To all the facets. 
Is when I realized.
I’m at the mercy.
Of the mountains.
Completely.
Utterly.
Connected.

Sometimes it fails. Even if you put in the work you thought would be enough to reach something remarkable. You fail. You reached your limits. In a state of exhaustion you feel the pain. The pain of not reaching your goal. 
For now.
Stand up.
Go on. 
Try again. 
After sleeping about an hour we made our way up the mountain for a thee hour hike through the darkness only to witness the sunrise from the peak. As we reached the summit we quickly realized that we’re not going to experience a sunrise. Fog everywhere. We crossed our fingers that it will clear up later, but it didn’t. We were bummed out. It didn’t stop raining until we decided to descent. 
All I was left with is this one picture. For now. I’m going to stand up. Go on. And try again.

Sometimes.
Sometimes you get caught up.
Caught up in life. 
Everything.
Everything around you seems better.
Faster. Stronger. 
You forget.
You forget about where you’re at. 
What you have done.
To be where you are right now. 
What you have achieved.
Something to be proud of.
Sometimes it’s good.
To look left and right. 
To recognize the hills.
The hills you already reached.

Moments before I walked on wet wood.
Moments before I slipped and fell into the lake after doing a threesixtie.
Moments before my camera got wet and stopped working.
Moments before I was sad.

I guess thats what you get for wearing vans and walking on wet ground.

This is a safety-notification! Don’t wear vans and hike! It’s dangerous! 😅
