The path of January through the woods of Finland. A place where silence meets the beauty of the eye. The gentle snow has left its marking on the ground as it usually does, just after Christmas. A hot cup of tea has never tasted better in the bitter coldness as it presses against my chilled lips. The warmth against the cold is an inviting combination that has a way of comforting the soul. The low sun makes an occasional appearance just before the snowflakes began falling from the sky. January is a time of new beginnings, a blank canvas to gain inspiration and a chance to yearn for better times and positive changes.
