I have been reading about Finland while visiting my Dad this week.
About the astonishingly beautiful aurora that happens in the sky in winter there. Green, blue, red, violet.
About the 30 year war between Sweden and Russia (1293 - 1323) that divided Finland between those two countries for 800 years.
About the German advance on Leningrad over the top of Finland in World War II and then the retreat when everything in Northern Finland was burned including the city of Rovaniemi.
This month I begin a third year of journalling with thread, one skein of embroidery floss every day.
