“Can a person who has been brought up in the heart of a thick dark forest, where one has to beat a path through multiple layers of trees just to take a letter to the post office, have any conception of what it’s like to spend one’s entire childhood waiting for a single tree to grow?”
Audur Ava Olafsdottir, The Greenhouse

“Ceux qui arrivent à entrer un court instant dans la vie des autres peuvent avoir plus d'importance que ceux qui y sont installés depuis des années. (Rosa Candida, p.136)”
Audur Ava Ólafsdóttir

“Where are there towns but no houses, roads but no cars, forests but no trees?
