A Journey Inside the Mind of Klaus II

For those of you Finnish speakers, your moment has come.  Here is a stirring, eloquent account of our epic 115-km journey to Lemmenjoki, written by none other than my partner in crime and modern-day Klaus, Annukka Rantalainen!  Thank you to Seppo J. Partanen and Kultahippu for posting, and to Annukka for this great rendition.


PROJECT UPDATE: I am currently based out of a snowy cabin in upstate New York, and have begun the second (and possibly more difficult) part of my journey: rendering it into words.  I am working every day on becoming comfortable with discomfort without trying to fix or change things – accepting that this is not a point in my life where I should or need to feel safe, and relishing the growth I feel.  It is clear that this will be a long and humbling process, full of beauty and the unexpected.  I am seeking out good mentorship, trusting my capabilities, and trying to let the story drive itself.  Thank you for your patience, your encouragement, and your trust in me.
