The Spring Tune

One calm and cloudless evening, toward the end of April, Snufkin found himself far enough to the north to see still-unmelted patches of snow on the northern slopes.

He had been walking all day through undisturbed landscapes, listening to the cries of the birds also on their way northward, home from the South.

Walking had been easy, because his knapsack was nearly empty and he had no worries on his mind. He felt happy about the wood and the weather, and himself. Tomorrow and yesterday were both a a distance, and just at present the sun was shining brightly red between the birches, and the air was cool and soft.

"It's the right evening for a tune," Snufkin thought.

A new tune, one part expectation, two parts spring sadness, and for the rest just the great delight of walking alone and liking it.

I came to today's Helsinki Bookcrossing meeting with absolutely no idea what was in store for me. I left with 19 books!! I am so excited to take this one home to Canada! I visited the Moomin Museum in Tampere a couple months ago and didn't realize how philosophical the little trolls are! I'm really excited to take this one home.

Thank you for the warm welcome Tarja!
