Morning report from Punxutawney

It’s +10°c here in Lauttasaari, Helsinki, Finland and I’ve slept 6 hours. I haven’t drank my morning coffee yet, because I don’t drink nor do I believe in coffee. I’ve read a little bit of art history this morning. The roots of seventeenth century flower painting.

Close my eyes and hope that it’s / A real smooth flight / This time
