I want my LJ to be easier to hadle and I prefer to give my energy to people I feel connected to. So I removed all inactive journals from my list + a few people who are active but with whom I never really correspond (who never comment on my posts and whose posts I don't feel that close to). I don't think anyone of you will miss me so I hope there are no hard feelings.

If someone of you inactive Lj friends ever come back and want to be added again, please send me private message or e-mail (or comment to this post) and I'll add you back.

As a starter for the new year I'm going to do a friends cut. I know it may be a bit silly after adding all the new people in the friending frenzies lately but there are a few inactive journals of people (old friends) who never write any blog posts and people who hardly ever comment or people I just don't feel connected to for some reason. I don't really see what is the point in keeping it going. I don't think you guys read my LJ and even if you do I find this kind of one-sided sharing rather odd.

I am going to remove some of the new people as well because there has not been interaction or I feel that we just do not click after all. I bet you're wonderful people but I do not feel comfortable about having LJ friends who never comment or even reply to my comments on their journal posts. That's not how this thing works for me.

In the friending frenzies I always said I prefer quality over quantity and that I hope people only add me if they're really interested in making friends with me. I honestly want to concentrate on the friendships that really exist or have started to bloom and at least some weaving of connection is happening. I do not have any hard feelings about anyone and I don't regret giving it a try but it just did not happen, so that's it.

If you are an old friend and come back to LJ some day, please send me a private message or reply to this post and I will add you back. :)

- Bold all of the following TV shows of which you've seen 3 or more episodes.
- Italicize a show if you're positive you've seen every episode.
- Asterisk * if you have at least one full season on tape or DVD
- If you want, add up to 3 additional shows (keep the list in alphabetical order).

Considering that I haven't had a TV for almost 10 years I think I've seen quite a few...

This is my back up plan if LJ dies... I have no idea if I'll ever use this as my journal until then but we'll see.

I hate to do friends cuts but at the moment I feel a bit overwhelmed with things and so many people in my friend list. It is nothing personal and I really hope no-one gets offended. I added quite a few new friends from the friending memes a while ago and with some I felt a connection instantly but some remained a bit more distant and I feel there isn't that much in common after all. (= no commenting or real communication). There's also several inactive journals in my friend list and some old friends who are no longer there. So It's time to do this. Sorry.

I think I really do. If you can love a song the first time you hear it or feel enchanted by anything beautiful, touching and wonderful then why not love someone at first sight? I believe that many times we can see each others inner shining & beauty at the very first sight and love it.

I love this song!

In their infinite wisdom, LJ has now added a new "feature". This allows anyone who comments on an entry, whether it's locked or not, to x-post their comments to Facebook and Twitter.

Most people who f-lock their posts, do it for a reason. Even if people on Facebook can't read the locked entry itself, they see your comment (which may contain a quote from the locked entry) and the title of the entry. This is a violation of the original poster's privacy.

I'm sure I don't really need to say this but my LJ is private/friends only and I don't want it to have anything to do with FB or Twitter ( I don't want the people; my relatives, old classmates etc. in FB to be able to read even my info page here unless I'm willing to share my journal with them as my friends and I believe it is my decision to make).

I am asking each and every one of you: DO NOT USE THIS FEATURE WHEN YOU COMMENT ON MY ENTRIES!!! I do not want links to my entries all over Facebook and Twitter. Please respect this. My entries are locked for a reason.

If you crosspost your comments to my LJ, public post or not, to Facebook or Twitter, you're banned. Forever. Seriously, there is a reason why I have kept my LJ completely seperate from anything that's on Facebook, and it's meant to stay that way.

Friends cut

I made a  friends cut and unfriended all deleted journals as well as accounts that has been inactive for ages. I also unfriended some people I like but with whom I've never really got connected (who never commented on anything I wrote nor replied to my comments). I prefer to keep this journal for communicating with real friends only as well as people I feel could become real friends. 

New friends are welcome but only if there is a real possibility to become friends and a mutual interest to get to know each other. My other lj [livejournal.com profile] kuukiventomu  is more open to casual pals & communication with whoever is interested in fandom stuff or spiritual ponderings.

Wishing you all well! And if you were unfriended due to being inactive here and some day decide to come back, feel free to contact me and I will add you back. :)

Nuoruus

Minä olin niin nuori ja kiihkeä,
miten saattaa kaivatakaan
se nuoruus, jolla on nälkä
ja turmelus suonissaan.
Ja punaiset lyhdyt loisti
ja viulut ja saksofonit soi,
bulevardien liekkimerta
kadun asfalttipinta joi.

Minä tuijotin yöhön räikeään
käsin, kasvoin palavin.
Yön hurma sai minut vapisemaan
niin että huohotin.
Kadun liekkimeressä loisti
pedonsilmät autojen,
minä olin niin kipeän nuori
ja yksinäinen.

Minä itkin joskus salaa,
kuten nuoruus itkeä voi,
kun punaiset luhdyt loisti,
ja viulut ja saksofonit soi.
Yön suurissa tanssisaleissa
hien tuoksu ja puuterin
oli sairaan kiihkeä niin kuin
minun sielunikin.

Minä olin niin nuori ja kiihkeä
ja kuumasilmäinen.
Bulevardeilla kiilsivät katseet
silmien maalattujen.
Kipein, ihanin nuoruuteni,
- niin katkerana nään -
miten hukkui se pimeän hotellin
porraskäytävään.

While reading my fairy book (Cassandra Eason's A Complete Guide to Fairies & Magical Beings) I started to ponder about all the fantasy realms, imaginary lands and faerie places I've ever felt drawn to and there really has been so many...  When I was small and young I used to spend lots of time in my own imaginary worlds inspired by the things I had read about but allthese musings about fantasy worlds and fairie realms have never really left me..

*Nangijala was one of my first loves. The beautiful afterworld of Astrid Lindgren's Bröderna Lejonhjärta (The Lionheart Brothers). I truly loved the two valleys; Cherry Valley and Rose Valley and the kind of medieval atmosphere, campfires, horses and frightening kind of dragons.. When I was small I used to dream about riding horses, without a saddle on the fields & wilderness. And I used to dream about living in the Cherry Valley.. oh how I wished to have my own little house there..

*Narnia was a dream land as well.. All the interesting creatures, talking animals and epic events. I loved especially the fauns. <3

*The Middle Earth, especially Loth Lorien & Rivendel.. I loved the elven places, the trees and forests of the Middle Earth. And the mines of Moria..

*Avalon was different from others.. more real, more connected to this world. I loved the Priestess island of The Mists of Avalon and somehow always felt drawn to Avalon being related to apples.. And the mists.. the old faerie lands deep beyond the mists..

*Finnish author Marjatta Kureniemi was also able to bring so much magic and imaginary places into my childhood. The story about two little girls (Onneli & Anneli) who moved into a house of their own.. a wonderful fairytale like place.. or the fairytales of Unikko (the sister of Sandman) filled my dreams with all kinds of beautiful, enchanted things.. rainbow coloured rivers and flyiong with the dandelion seeds..

*The World(s) of Brian & Wendy Froud, Charles de Lint, Holly Black & Terri Windling introduced me to the faeries who reside here among us.. urban spirits of the ancient creatures.. wings and roots.. fairytales retold.. People who believe. People who know..

* The Faerie of Sandman/DC comics.. strongly drawn inspiration from the MIdsummer night's dream. Titania and Oberon and all the enchantment of the Faerie court.

There is many others too... The Legend, The Last Unicorn, Dark Crystal, Stardust...

Persoonallisuustesti

Edellisten vastaustesi perusteella: Olet 60 % Impulsiivinen

Seuraava kaavio kuvaa vastaustesi sijoittumista

Ekstrovertti------------*--------Introvertti
Käytännöllinen----------------*----Intuitiivinen
Ajattelija------------*--------Tuntija
Impulsiivinen----*----------------Harkitsija
(mmmp)

Vastaustesi perusteella seuraava luonnehdinta kuvaa persoonallisuuttasi

Olet rauhallinen, luova ja huomaavainen henkilö. Saatat usein vaikuttaa ujolta, varautuneelta tai viileältä. Sinulla on harvinainen kyky omistautua syvästi sekä ihmisille että asioille. Ihmistyyppisi ohjaa käyttäytymistään vahvoilla sisäisillä arvoilla, eikä niinkään logiikalla tai järkisyillä. Jos sinut pakotetaan toimimaan faktojen ja logiikan tasolla, sinusta syntyy vaikutelma toiselta planeetalta tulleesta olennosta. Sovellut ammatteihin, joissa voi ihmisten kanssa soveltaa empatiaa ja keskustelua. Kaltaisesi ihmiset ovat usein uskonnollisia, hengellisiä tai filosofisia, ja näkevätkin oman elämänsä matkana tai tehtävänä. Järkeilyyn taipuvaiset ihmiset saattavat pitää sinua mystikkona tai haihattelijana. Ihmistyyppisi elämää leimaa usein puolison, ”sielunkumppanin” etsintä. Etsit kaiken aikaa tasapainoa, koska kaipaat yhtä aikaa rauhaa ja yksityisyyttä, sekä kontaktia toisiin ihmisiin. Tästä syystä sinulla on taipumus vaipua alakuloisuuteen.  

Wow!
