(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.


walking in circles

i woke up feeling strange
fully dressed on my bed, fully light outside

i missed the full moon perigee

i fell asleep at 9 last night, unintentionally
and only woke up at 6
i had been planning to bike to the lake
where my walking friends were watching
and go to the snails afterwards
but i slept

i felt sad

when i walked down the stairs to make some breakfast
my legs felt as if i had been walking for hours
and i thought of the quote i started this project with

to step is to dream

i must have dreamt a lot
and then i remembered something else

great things always begin with sleep.
great things begin by the thinnest edge.

i thought i just ended something
i thought i might have missed something
but i didn’t
