Omissa oloisaan

Finnish lake in summertime

Finnish silence has textures, complexity, a grammar of its own. 'Omissa oloissaan' loosely translates as to find comfort in your own company. Often in silence. A silence that comes when you are undisturbed in your thoughts, a silence where you can withdraw into your chosen peace, a silence that is recognised and honoured but it is also the finest silence to share with friends with family, so they can see you as whole against the wide blue sky.
