I started to write this blog around 4th of November with the aim to write a poem every day. I skipped one day, but just because everything outside where I live was too beautiful to even try and think about how to reach anything similar with words. What I have learned is that I feel very insecure about posting things this often, as some of them are far from thought-through, but that it’s also very liberating – I quite like making and keeping promises, it’s one of the biggest freedoms of human life, as long as you are aware of your limits in making them. Also, writing every day does make you a better writer, as doing voice exercises does good for your voice and so on. Many skills of artists’ are muscles, and many things we think are undoable in the world just take many repetitive muscles, or humans.
As for now, this is the last poem. In December, I will be posting some material from my upcoming book in Finnish, and was also thinking of taking some of these poems and dissecting them for editing purposes here – but we’ll see. I would also really like to publish some of my academic writing as I never seem to have time to figure out a way to get those out anywhere, and I actually think they should be read and challenged and thought about. Also, those are already written so I can just copy and paste them! Anyway, here it goes – back in few days. (And oh look, it’s both a written version and a video!)
Thanks for all who have been reading, you genuinely make me very happy!
