Sunday’s Special Spot – Helsinki

This week’s picture takes us to a special monument in Helsinki, Finland. For those of you who don’t know, I am of Finnish ethnicity. I’m a first generation Canadian – yes, I am the daughter of immigrants. I am proud of my background almost as much as I am proud to be a Canadian. So here we go, a great photo of the Sibelius Monument in Helsinki:

Sibelius Monument, Helsinki, Finland (designed by Eila Hiltunen)

Born in 1865, Jean Sibelius was a talented and celebrated composer and musician and one of Finland’s greatest talents. He is credited with affecting the National Identity of Finland and having a strong influence on symphony and sound. He lived to a ripe old age of 91.
