The woods, 10:34


I decided to experiment today and find out how easily I could walk along the path that runs parallel to Linnanherrantie at the bottom of the field. I turned left down Rekitie and right opposite the snow–covered allotments onto the path.

The start seemed easy enough but then I hit intermittent patches of ice. I nodded at a pack of dog–walkers standing in a small circle, nodding to each other. When I turned to look across the field I could see another man and a dog outlined against the snow.

I stopped to watch them walk slowly in a unwavering straight line through the white.
