Hello Pine, it's Sunday 18th of June and I just came from Harakka Island, from the boat and had the impulse to come and say hello to you and thank you, because I've just taken down the exhibition Pondering with Pines in the Telegraph Gallery, where you were one of the main performers together with another pine further up on the slope. Because I presented all the 12 conversations with you I had during the year 2022. Okay, my aim is not not to record this as a podcast or I'm not video filming this with a camera or anything, this will be... But I'm recording this, because it will be like some sort of field notes or 'ponderings' for me. But the impulse was so strong to say thank you because of course after we collaborated all the year 2022, I have sort of completely abandoned you. Sometimes I've looked at you when I've been passing here, but after all you taught me quite a lot about what talking to pines might mean. And this special capacity of yours that I can sit on your branch is really something not so common, so it should be appreciated. Well, I'm quite happy with the exhibition after all, although it was simple and I published a brief blog post about it today. But of course, it's always a little bit sad to take down an exhibition. And well, it's very easy to take down an exhibition with video works; it took me only one hour today and most of the time was just to take down the curtains used for blocking all the light. It's very windy today and I can feel your trunk move when your crown is touched by the wind. I don't know how much of what I'm talking will be audible, but it doesn't matter. It's more important that I can now meet you one more time. And you look like before, it makes me happy, although you have a lot of resin on your trunk and I have some of it on my hands, too, so probably something is bothering you. But anyway, I'm continuing on my walk and this was just to say thank you, so one more time really, really, really very much thank you for all the help you gave. Take care.
