The Great Ordinary
Hello! I have been hiding out, catching up, and easing slowly back into everyday life. Just after my last post I caught the train to Edinburgh, and the next day I spent wandering the streets of Copenhagen alone, before falling asleep in Helsinki, reunited with my husband who'd been off for a week presenting a paper at a conference in Estonia. Together we adventured through Finland for a week, before heading off to a family reunion back in France. Still, crazy whirlwind weeks aside, I've been hiding out at home in Scotland for almost two weeks now, so it is definitely time to reconnect again!
It feels like a long time since I've had the experience of returning home after travels. All the old seems new again, and a sweet, quiet feeling of retreat seems to hover over everything. Looking at things from this particular perspective, other approaches to the ordinary seem to present themselves.
One thing I have been thinking about is how posts here sometimes take up a lot more energy than they ought to. So a new aim is to make shorter posts, which will hopefully turn into more posts... maybe even photos of works in progress if I can work up the nerve!
Anyway, I can hear the front door opening, so I'd better be going. A Russian circus is in town tonight!
