more moomin magic



As we travel round on trains visiting I’ve been reading Comet in Moominland to Sam. It’s like discovering a new path to a new landscapes, for him and for me. Just like the book says about Sniff (who loves jewels and small adventures):

”One morning… the little animal Sniff made a discovery. (There were still plenty of things left for them to discover in the valley.)  He was wandering in the forest when he suddenly noticed a path he had never seen before winding mysteriously into the green shadows. Sniff was spellbound and stood gazing at it for several minutes.


‘It’s funny about paths and rivers,’ he mused. ‘You see them go by, and suddenly you feel upset and want to be somewhere else – wherever the path or the river is going perhaps. I shall have to tell Moomintroll about this…'”

    I have a friend that when we were young wanted to throw a small stick in a stream and follow it to the river and then to the bay, then to the open sea, then to another land, another sea, another continent etc. etc. He was very serious about it.

    And did this friend travel far?
    Did he return?

    He became an artist. What’s more amazing, he lives of his art!
