“Coming out of a dream or a book, the real world is such a deceptive and essentially miserable place.”
Phil Elverum, Dawn

“I only had two real tasks [while in Norway]: gathering dead trees to burn from the surrounding small forest and getting water from a hole in a frozen stream. The rest of the time I wandered around, obsessed over my life dramas, stared into space, read books, wrote letters, made up songs, went crazy and eventually snapped out of my misery and noticed the dawn”
