My list of Muses version 2017

Lists of Muses. To start with, I have to give full credit of this concept to my lovely friend KWAME, who’s been my ultimate muse lately. So how does this work? We all have those moments, when we get lost in social media, especially in places like YouTube. Your favourite pieces that you share then […]

#METOO

#METOO. You could not miss this hashtag past week. It has been all over social media, and for a reason. I was one of the first ones to add it from my personal circles. It was scary at first. I caught myself wondering.. what will people think? Will people imagine me as a weak person, […]

Why Is The X Factor So Popular?

The X Factor. We all know it as an entertaining TV-show. But why is it so attractive to us and draws all our attention to it as a show? Anybody who knows me a little bit more personally, has heard me talk about Saara Aalto. She put on a massive fight in last year’s The […]

Creating Our Earth – From sadness to respectful world of tomorrow

The past week has been very tough mentally for me, as it’s been for the most of the world. Beirut, Paris, Bamako, Syria, Iraq… The list continues. ‘Why’ and ‘what next’ seem to be the questions in the air. In the western media, Paris was shown largely and Beirut seemed to be forgotten at the […]

Because you remember all the happy faces, hugs with strangers, people on cars, tractors and busses – on whatever they just found to climb on. It was a good night to stay in Germany. […]

Communicating – delivering a message

Today I visited Museum für Kommunikation (Museum of Communication) in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. It gave me many thoughts and I would like to share something. I started thinking, we use electronic devices all the time but we never stop for a minute to think why. It’s all about the fact that we want to […]

Insights to the closed cultures and countries – in 3 books

I prefer to feel the air of another country rather than watching it from TV, and hear the real stories behind the touristic brochures. But sometimes it is not possible, or it is hard to find someone who would say a word. In these cases my way is to read a book written by an […]

Old and new culture of communicating

I was born to a quite late generation, but I also had the privilege to live before Internet and mobile phones. I like the inventions of past times, for example it gives me a possibility to write this blog and share my thoughts all over the world (which earlier would have been quite a tough […]
