Last Saturday I visited The Pumpkin Festival at Koiramäen pajutalli.
The place was crowded with families and kids. They had put an enourmous effort
to create a lovely happening. In addition to cafes, decorations and pumpkins there were animals
and a merry-go-round, too! A lot to see and enjoy.
... the kids loved their cotton candy ...
... resting for a while ...
... three cute llamas ...
... a Snow White?
... the coolest one, a rocker or raggare, just chewing the cud ...
... charming bedroom eye lashes ...
... this handsome black German Shepard was not on duty ...
... not giants but big. My heaviest giant weighed 42 kg years ago!
-- an UFO!
"The music tears my eardrums and the fear tingles in the body. The lights flicker
like broken fluorescent lamps and the sea of distorted faces rustles. The horse's speed
accelerates from one round to the other and its cresp flaps - I can hardly stay on it.
Now, please, help someone!!!
I hear my childhood friend Leena saying again and again Take this, take this!
and she puts something sticky in my hand. In the vagueness I don't see what it is,
but I can smell its odour. I sniff and lick.
That's a cotton candy! What the hell am I doing with Leena here!
I wake up in a sweat and a heart beat. Relaxed, I see familiar walls and nothing spins.
The outline of the merry-go-round dissolves right into the ordinary morning,
and the velvety stickiness evaporates from my tongue.
You wonderful everyday! I want to stay in you, right now!" - riitta
