This week, every morning has been like living inside a thick foggy cloud. By 9 o'clock, however, the sun has come - or the rain.
Not rain today. Today we have had a full day of bathing in the sun beams.
We might have liked to do as our regular neighbours, the 2-6 seals, do; they mostly stay on the little islette off the coast line.
They do not mind us much; only their premises are so far that we cannot send you their photo.
No, we work - and philosphise. The midsummer night bonfire has finally cooled down so we moved the ashes from one side of the lighthouse to the other.
Why? To try and make flowers grow. One of us, the geologist, was sceptical. She thinks the next winter will wipe away our effort. Another one of us, Tiina the teacher, however, has been excited about the gardening.
After separating nails and other misplaced and unburned objects from the ashes and wheelbarrowing them into holes on the rocks, Tiina goes on planning discarding the bio compost of our own residues.
Not a very exhilirating thought, but Tiina says we have to learn to know that side of our bio mechanisms as well.
How about the philosophical part of the day? While loading the former bonfire onto the wheel barrow, JP asked Katja, the geologist, whether there is something outside the boundaries of our universe
Katja took it as not meaning our märketcosmos, but our known universe.
"Nobody knows for sure, as far as I know, but I think the human kind should consider some totally different type of life forms when we search life in space."
There we were again. I, the humanist journalist, think staying on a deserted island with the seals and the swallows and, like yesterday, without field of telecommunications, creates interesting conversations.
Tiina would very much like to know why the sea does not move around even if the waves move constantly.
We welcome all outsiders warmly to visit us and give some more topics to wonder about.
It is a wonderful island and now I shall try and send the photos for you; yesterday I was trying from 5 PM to 8 PM and again at 10 PM. No connection.
