Now that you may have more time to read, I would love to recommend you Patria by Fernando Aramburu - a thick book of over 600 pages but so well written! Aramburu was born in San Sebastian, Basque Country, Spain - so he knows his theme. Patria tells about the terrorism of ETA and how ETA broke the warm friendship between two families and split a small village in two opposite fronts. Translated as Homeland available at Amazon. Five star reading experience for me❤︎
What may April bring? I wish you and your family health & hope, sun & green sprouting spring. Did you know that Flowers Can Dance?

WWF's Earth Hour originated in Sydney, Australia in 2007,
with over two million people participating.In 2008, the event expanded globally.
This evening at 8.30 pm your local time.
WWF's Earth Hour, the world's largest climate event, will be celebrated this year safely at home, online or by displaying a light sign on climate and nature. Online events bring people together in Australia, Singapore and also in Finland. In Helsinki the lights are turned off for example of the lanterns of the main railway station, Finlandia Hall and the Cathedral.

Earth Hour turns off lights from familiar landmarks around the world. Turning off the lights of landmarks, cities, businesses and organizations is a symbolic gesture for climate and nature. Climate change is worrying in Finland too: according to the Climate Barometer published in 2019, 41 per cent of Finns have changed their behavior due to climate change. Deeds for a common earth are needed now.

We are living in an extraordinary time, which requires a spirit of solidarity.
That's what Earth Hour is all about. Together we can show the sign of light for the good of nature, the planet and humanity. - WWF Secretary-General Liisa Rohweder.
There are many beautiful videos by The Piano Guys on Youtube - I chose this joyful one. All nations of the world call this planet home, regardless of race or wealth. We struggle all together to overcome this pandemic, too.
... is extremely hard right now, as we are all so afraid. Perhaps this apocalypse teaches us to Carpe Diem, complain less and be thankful for each day and for what we’ve got. This is a terrible lesson for mankind - we can’t control life, instead have to humble ourselves before The Universe. Positive thinking is the topic of Makrotex this week. What keeps me personally positive & thankful? The sun & the nature, the coming spring & summer, my family and this peaceful corner of the world where I live.
For Jutta’s Digital Tuesday I combined these two photos.
To talk about happines is absurd right now, but the UN has published its Happiness Report. Finland is the happiest country in the world for the third time running! The report lists 153 countries and the top ten are: Finland, Denmark, Switzerland, Iceland, Norway, Holland, Sweden, New Zealand, Austria and Luxembourg.
I searched for wise quotes on positive thinking and advise how to overcome our fears:
Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.
- Victor Hugo
Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.
- Helen Keller
Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.
- Marcus Aurelius
Louis Amstrong - What a wonderful world

Kuusijärvi / Spruce Lake recreation area has a rail to walk and nature to enjoy. A weathered grey log building photographed there. Recycling old photos... That is what’s going to happen for an unknown time....
Sometimes we have taken Sissi along... Here she has found a bird or squirrel.
I love the above photo with grass roof, another log building from the same place.
On the photo my former blog name...
