What’s In The Water?

May 4, 2017

We all know how important drinking enough water is and now with summer upon us, the sun reminds us of that as well. Whilst it can be easy to pop into the nearest kiosk for a half a litre bottle, or get an extra litre from the guy selling drinks on our way to that more remote beach, we all agree this is not the most economically or…

Spring Clean

In the last post I wrote about moving away from things that just do not feel right, even if reason can tell us otherwise. Needless to say, the topic of recognising when it is time to change the course and refocus energies has been in my mind a lot lately. Not that I have gone for some radical overhaul of my life (yet), rather I have tweaked certain…

January 23, 2017

After all the talk about the Yoga Sutras I feel the need (maybe you do too) for some comic relief.

November 28, 2016

Yesterday was the launch of my friend Melissa’s colouring book inspired by the circular shape and artwork of the Cypriot Capital’s Old City. I let the pictures describe the rest.  Ystäväni Melissan väristyskirja julkaistiin eilen. Kirjaa innoitti Kyproksen pääkaupungin vanhan kaupungin ympyrämuoto ja se hienot yksityiskohdat. Kuvat saavat kertoa enemmän. The book will be available in major bookstores Island wide as from the mid December. It should also…

Melissa’s Nicosia Mandalas

November 22, 2016

***Finnish text after English/Suomeksi englannin jälkeen*** When the writer and children’s books author Melissa Hekkers came across pictures of mandalas in a colouring book last winter, they immediately reminded her the circular shape of the Old City of Nicosia, the Capital of Cyprus. The concept of Mandala (coming from the Sanskrit word ”circle”) symbolises harmony and unity through balancing visual elements: As Nicosia (or Lefkosia/Lefkoşa in the local…
