47 kindlam mykoloogia

This is an exerpt from an Estonian grade 1 nature (loodus/teadus) workbook. The assignment, part of the chapter marked sügis (fall), was to cut out the names of the various seened (mushrooms) and match them with the correct picture. If 7 year-old first graders in Eesti can identify them, so should the rest of us.

On the evening of Nov. 5th. 2013, METSATÖLL stormed onto the stage at the recently opened west side, venue: Stage 48 [on 48th St. between 11th & 12th Aves.] and planted their thoroughly developed, precise, organic, pagan-souled, ethno-metal [or "folk-metal," as it is more commonly referred to] assault, then attendees; not relenting or leaving until their crunching and shouting was, well & truly, done and they had brought joy, force and pride to the masses on site.

44 kindlam hingedepaev

October 31st is like any other regular fall day in Estonia. No spooking or skeletons to be seen. But a few days later, on November 2nd hingede/päev, or "souls day" is quietly observed. People visit the graves (haud, pl. hauad) of their loved ones where they place candles, while many light candles at home, often putting them in the window as an indication to the spirits of forefathers and -mothers that they are remembered and awaited home. Many reflective concerts take place, such as the one advertised here at Jaani kirik.  Photo: Riina Kindlam
