Beautiful mistakes

Helsingissä 17.8.2010

Dear Kirsikka,

The thing I love about Diana is that it allows you to make mistakes. And what would life be without mistakes and occasional failing? It would be boring I tell you. Mistakes can turn out to be something truly beautiful. Something like this:

I was at the Flow festival taking photos and when I was done I tried to roll the film. BUT it didn't really work so it got over exposed. But I love it. Looks like the pictures are in flames. Flames of bad luck turned into something far more brilliant.

--Shadows are falling and I'm running out of breath
Keep me in your heart for a while
If I leave you it doesn't mean I love you any less
Keep me in your heart for a while

When you get up in the morning and you see that crazy sun
Keep me in your heart for a while
There's a train leaving nightly called "when all is said and done"
Keep me in your heart for a while--

I know you must be super busy with packing and all so I wanted to surprise you with a letter although it wasn't my turn exactly. But I was thinking of you. How you get as excited about things as I do. I got this film today and was jumping up and down (and maybe even danced a bit) when I saw these photos. I know you would do the same.

Summer is turning into Fall again. I can just feel it. I'm so glad I got to spend this weekend doing all the great things with my friends. I danced till dawn. Looked at the stars and listened to music at 3 am and waited for the sun to come up. I drank some wine. Okay you got me, maybe a lot of wine. I laughed with Anne when I went to sleep and I laughed with her when we got up. I held many hands while walking through the crowd so we wouldn't lose each other.

Soon you'll be here and we get to show what we've accomplished this past year at our photo exhibition. It is so exciting.

It kind of feels like an end of an era. It'll be stories "From Helsinki to LONDON and back" from now on. But I can't wait! And welcome home first muru, I've missed you! I'm glad that I get to keep you in Finland for a tiny bit before you take London by storm again. And look how beautiful photos we've taken and how heart warming letters we've written this past year! I say we're kind of amazing.

With Love,
Emmi and Diana
