Helsinki rocks!

Hietaniemi beach in Helsinki

I am sitting cheekily on a rock at a safe distance from waves that are eager to play tricks on me. Splash! Splash! Splash! My shoes and trousers wet, wetter, wettest.

Such imprudence!

I was taught humility by English. University diplomas, working with natives, being mistaken for a British native speaker, studying technical English, and passing tests for a British interpreting company….

English  m o c k s  me! Whatever I have learnt has to be continuously repeated, revised, practiced – I may have climbed many hills yet there is still a mountain to climb. English has taught me humility. Today the Baltic Sea taught me the same lesson splashing me all over for my imprudence.
