Bon Voyage Party

Helsinki, 13 degrees



Let us step into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.

Yesterday I had to wish "Bon Voyage" to one of the most important people in my life - my dear big sister. She is going to be traveling with her husband for about six months, mostly in Asia, and I couldn't be happier for her! It's her honeymoon, self-exploration and adventure! However, tears were shed yesterday as it's difficult to imagine such a long period without her. I know we've been apart before when I've lived abroad, but I guess as one grows older, it becomes more difficult to be far away from loved ones. Stay safe sis, I love you. I'm proud of you.

Eilen toivotin hyvää matkaa yhdelle tärkeälle henkilölle - rakkaalle isosiskolleni. Hän aikoo matkustella miehensä kanssa noin puoli vuotta, erityisesti Aasiassa. En voisi olla iloisempi hänen puolestaan! Matka on hänelle häämatka, mahdollisuus itsetutkistelua varten ja varsinainen seikkailu! En voinut kuitenkaan olla kyynelehtimättä eilen koska oli niin vaikeeta ajatella, että nähdään vasta kuuden kuukauden päästä. Tiedän, että olemme olleet erillään jo aikaisemmin kun olen itse lähtenyt maailmalle, mutta kai se muuttuu vaikeammaksi vuosien mittaan. Toivon eniten, että rakas siskoni pääsee palaamaan matkan jälkeen turvallisesti kotiin. Rakastan sinua siskoni. Olen ylpeä sinusta.


As I told my sister on her wedding day, I repeat / Toistan sen mitä sanoin siskolleni hänen hääpäivänä:

"I carry your heart with me, I carry it in my heart. I am never without it, anywhere I go, you go, my dear." (E.E. Cummings)
