Are you able to lissen what a chanterelle has to say? To be that silent and focused?
Waldur Mikita, an Estonian writer, claims that Estonians are able. Maybe the Finns too.
In his book of Kanttarellin kuuntelemisen taito (in English: Lissening to a chanterelle) he says that real specialists are “the old grandmothers at countryside”. They have learned to know the nature by heart and they are important cultural ambassadors for their grandchildren. Great job!
Walking in the forest is like walking in a three-dimensional art work. One can also focus on small objects from nature. Soili Arha is internationally known artist who makes her own art from nature. The examples are from larger works in the book Tekstiilitaidetta luonnosta (Textile art from nature. Soili Arha and Teija Isohauta. Maahenki 2015).
I visited Sinisen Saimaan taideinstituutti (private art institute by Saimaa lake).
Katja Antonoff and some other artists organize art courses there during summer time.
During the courses the students visit also at famous rock paintins of Astuvansalmi.

The place is the most picturesque and delightful, and it is located at the historical Himalansaari area.
The old church belongs to the historical area.
