Happy Mothers Day!

My blogging has again gone down to a minimum, but I hope that less social media means more life. At least it feels like life is busy. I am having my first yoga classes already, next one tomorrow, you're most welcome to join my class!

Stromae makes a song about social media addiction

The music video is actually quite gross at the end but message behind it is worth thinking about.


I was myself quite tired of Facebook about a month ago, and tried to do a but of a Facebook detox. I deleted Facebook apps from my phone etc. Unfortunately, I didn't manage too well with staying away from Facebook though. It's like that irritating blue bird in the music video, it demands your attention. I still haven't re-installed the Facebook apps on my phone though and I am definitely not gonna do it again. In fact there might be a few other apps that are pretty useless and time consuming on my phone....

Here is a good article with a girl who is not on Facebook, few points in there made me think about the authenticity in social media relations.


Happy Easter!


Hope you are enjoying Easter!This picture is from a few weeks ago, unfortunately it is quite dull weather today.

The Local and Organic Food fair last weekend was unfortunately a bit of a disappointment. My guess is that smaller producers and sellers cannot afford the prices for a stand so the more interesting once are not even there. Also I missed some more interesting plants at the garden section, last year I found the olive tree, this year all I could see was flower's for Easter (which is ok, just not what I was looking for).

Local & Organic Food Fair

The local and organic food fair will be organized in the Helsinki Messukeskus (fair centre) on the weekend 26-29.3,  I got some free tickets so I will be there on Saturday with a couple of friends. Last year we went with some friends too (as paying guests though) and it was interesting but I hope there will be even more food stands this year. Hopefully this is a fair that will grow every year due to more producers and customers. During the same time there will be the spring and garden fair in Messukeskus so I hope to pick up some plants and maybe some seeds for the summer.



Will you be there? What's your expectations?

More talk on collapse (and opportunity)

David Holmgren one of the creators of Permaculture was speaking in a debate in Melbourne last month on the subject "To Collapse Or Not To Collapse: Pushing for economic ruin or building a great transition".

Very inspirational!

Wake Up

My lovely yoga teacher Leta at YogaRocks mentioned the documentary Wake up in our teacher's course and out of curiosity I watched it as you can find it on Netflix. I think it was an interesting documentary mostly because of the main character's search for answers to his spiritual crisis. I like that he explores it through a wide range of people from scientists to mystics and different religions.

One thing that stuck in my mind after watching it was his encounter with the Buddhist monk, Roshi Joan Halifax, as she talks about the Collapse Opportunity, which is interesting also from an environmental point of view.




If there would be a system collapse, how would you react? Are you able to look at the inhumanity in the world today and not go numb?
