It’s time for love – #time4estonia
Did you know that Estonians are a bit shy saying ‘I love you’ to each other? It just doesn’t come that naturally saying it out loud…
Luckily, our artists have found wonderful ways of expressing it. One of our most beloved poets, Doris Kareva has guided generations of Estonians through love and affection with her timeless poetry:
And I love you
because I love you.
Why even meet –
you are mere air to me.
(An extract from “Days of Grace”, Bloodaxe Books, 2019) https://www.bloodaxebooks.com/ecs/category/doris-kareva
And hopefully, our musician Tuulikki Bartosik’s magical and soothing accordion tunes will brighten your day at home.
