Hi there. I guess you’re wanting to know who I am. I mean, let’s face it: you’ve just clicked on the About button and I don’t know why else you’d want to click there.

So: my name’s Maria. I’m Estonian by upbringing and New Zealandish by residence. My home is on the South Island.

The purpose of this blog isn’t entirely clear to me. Yet. Partially it is to keep myself amused and occupied. Writing is how I unload and destress, and how I build joy and share experiences. Partially, though, it is to simply clear my head (and boy is there a lot of it sometimes, sorry).

You like it here? You’re welcome.

You don’t like it here? My condolences, but you did click on this page yourself, you know.

Have a good day, guys.

    1. Ha! I'm just seeing this. I am not familiar with Blogger. Not on here much. Except to see what you are up to. Trying to find the button to follow your blog. Not seeing it though. Hmmm. Anyway, I've been thinking about putting pen to paper to write you since I wrote that message in November. I've been procrastinating until we found out what our family's next adventure was going to be and we are almost to fruition. Anyway, can send me your snail mail address? alaskapaw@yahoo.com
