I'm out here in Finland, chilling with my good friend Hayes. I've visited wonderfully little architecture - vernacular more than anything - and it feels great! This time is for catching up, disengaging, and perhaps picking up a few future directions; definitely not clock-watching.
The lifestyle beyond the cities is rich, as I found with a retreat to one summer house about two hours north of Helsinki. It's perfectly relaxing to fill your days with practical tasks, fetching water, catching fish and finding wood to power the indispensible sauna. I jumped naked into the lake, too!
