THAT SUNSHINE GLOW

Other Personal

“One day you’ll leave this life behind…

Perjantaina alkuillasta kuulin France24-kanavalta lyhyen uutisen ruotsalaisen superstaran, DJ:n ja musiikkituottajan Tim Avicii Berglingin poismenosta. Tsekkasin pikaisesti kännykän, mutten löytänyt Suomen medioista tapahtuneesta vielä lainkaan tietoa. Ajattelin kuulleeni väärin, eihän 28-vuotias nuori mies nyt noin vain voi nukkua pois.

In the beginning of Friday evening, I was listening to a TV channel called France24 and heard the news of the Swedish superstar, DJ and producer Tim Avicii Bergling passing away. I checked my phone but there was yet nothing about the news to be found in the Finnish media. I thought that maybe I had heard wrong, he was just 28 years old after all.

…so live a life you will remember”

Myöhemmin totta kai selvisi, ettei mun kuulossa ole mitään vikaa. Eilen katsottiin porukalla Avicii: True Stories -dokumentti, ja voin kyllä suositella sitä lämmöllä! Dokkari avasi hienosti, kuinka hurjia paineita ujo, introvertti ja ahdistuneisuuteen taipuvainen nuori mies on kaiken menestyksen keskellä joutunut kestämään. Ja miten Timin vain parikymppisenä saavuttama maine ja mammona toi mukanaan joukon iilimatoja (niin kuin dokumentissa näitä ihmisiä kuvattiin).

Later it turned out there’s nothing wrong with my hearing. So yesterday, we watched a documentary called Avicii: True Stories with friends, and I can warmly recommend it! The document described the pressures the shy, introvert and anxiety-prone young man had to endure in the middle of all his success. The narrator also expressed how his money and fame sadly brought a pack of leeches with it.

Täällä on siis soinut Avicii käytännössä koko viikonlopun! Kolme parasta biisiä miehen tuotannosta on mun mielestä Wake Me Up, You Be Love ja The Nights, josta myös postauksen sitaatti on peräisin. Näiden kolmen, ja monien muidenkin hänen kappaleidensa, melodioita ei voi muuta kuin ihailla! Onneksi musiikki jää elämään. Vila i frid Avicii.

As you might guess, we’ve been listening to Avicii the whole weekend! The three songs I like best are Wake Me Up, You Be Love and The Nights, out of which I’ve also taken the quote of this post. One can do nothing but admire the melodies of these and many more of his pieces! I’m glad that, no matter what, we still have his music. Vila i frid Avicii.

LITTLE SOMETHING I GOT FOR MYSELF…
Good morning! Here's a few close-ups of a souvenir I got for myself in Paris after spending the afternoon tasting L'adurées lovely delicacies in their tea salon. In my opinion, L'adurée's keyholder is amazingly cute, and that's one of the reasons I wanted to write a post about it for you. The keyholder has almost always been on the go with me after returning from France, and those cute and pastel macarons make me smile everytime I'm looking for the keys in my bag. Then there's this other thing I wanted to talk to you about. Some of the readers have noticed the delay of answering your comments, and you're right about that. I will not bore you ...
