(yes, it is) 23 of May – 26 of June I’ll be one of three residents in the project Walking Peace in the Avian Kingdom in Sweden, organised by ARNA at the very spot where two pilgrim trails meet in Harlösa. Walking Peace is a green, slow and peaceful way of making new connections across cultural backgrounds and religions, creating art as a statement for peace while walking. Afterwards I'll be researching the pioneer life in Värmland.


cloud harvest

we arrived at the end
the pilgrim’s church of sankt olof
they rang the church bells for us
but they weren’t real bells
it was a memory only
of church bells that had once sounded
and that made sense
i saw myself reflected in the well that has been visited by many pilgrims since the middle ages
sara reached in the water
i asked her what she was looking for
for a moment i thought she said “god” but she was actually saying “gold”
i decided to walk again tomorrow
to never stop

on our way there i saw clouds being harvested
