  1. Congratulations on your beautiful new home! An old Finnish custom is to bring salt and bread on one’s first visit to wish blessings and good luck!

    I must admit though that I will miss the old one for a little while though – as your signature. In shosrt time the new home will take on the character of its owner too.


  2. Thanks, Marja-Leena! Good Finnish rye bread is one of my favorite things.

    I don’t like change much myself, but in less than a day I’ve already become fairly comfortable with this design.


  3. Yes, it looks cool and suave and sober, Dave. Blessings upon your new home.


  4. Thank you, Natalie. Sober? Yes, I guess that’s so. And perhaps i went with that out of some instinct that my own lack of sobriety(as in the above poem) would be more effective if more greatly in contrast with its surroundings.

  6. Hey, thanks, John! I hadn’t noticed before that “My Zen Life” was a WordPress blog. Cool.
