Oh, I forgot... mention that last night I dreamed that six Finns were sleeping over on my back porch.
They were magical, somehow, like salmon in the Finnish legends of Kalevala. I was sad that they would be leaving in the morning to hitch a ride on the rails.

I found this image of Aino on Northshorewoman blog from the Kalevala, originally from Compania Kaari Martin.

This image references the 1907 Finnish painting "Ad Astra".

The Finns are swimming through your dreams? Was it girl Finns or boy Finns? Or a school of both?

Funnily enough, I clearly remember that there were 2 girls and 4 boys. I don't know the significance of these numbers.
