As a mother of a young child my everyday life revolves pretty much around home. My days may be quite monotonous. I like my simple life but I`ve also noticed that some variation for the everyday life is good for my wellbeing. That`s why I was really glad when I got the invitation for the opening of artist Johanna Oras Art Manor.
Culture brings richness and creativity to the life
I don`t mind if someone calls me as “a nature person”. I love the nature and all what it has to offer for my wellbeing and happiness. But as I`ve said the balance in life is important for me . For that balance I feel that I need also culture in my life. My balance is not 50 % of nature/50 % of culture but it`s a relation that I need and I feel it´s good for me.
Cultural experiences bring richness to the life. They strengthen the creativity and give new point of views on life. I feel culture makes that to me. I like the feeling how the cultural experiences take shape in my head and become visible in the details of my everyday life.
Best for me is when the culture and nature merges
I`ve noticed that I enjoy the most of the cultural experiences when there are aspects both from the culture and from the nature – where those two merges; like listening the opera in my kayak on a lake outside the Olavinlinna castle. Or visiting Johanna Oras Art Manor which is located in a beautiful nature surrounding in Punkaharju ridge area.
I feel that in the experiences where the culture and nature merges, you can feel both powers, the power of culture and the power of nature. That makes the experience even more stronger compared to separate experiences.
Culture and nature feed and balance each other.
I wish you find your own kind of sources of joy from the rich culture and nature experiences. Take them as a part of your life and let them bring unforgettable experiences into your life!
