Doubting the ice drift

Nansen in front of his ship in the summer of 1894 (strongly doubting that the ice drift would lead him to the Pole).

I have never been interested in Polar expeditions, but the last year, every time I sit down to write, images of ice and deep, cold oceans pop up in my mind. I thing I’ll just have to follow the track. But I do feel a bit like Nansen right now; strongly doubting that the ice drift would lead me to the my goal … I guess I just have to go on board an see where language takes me – .

The blue line = Fram’s drift in the ice from the New Siberian Islands, north and west to Spitsbergen, September 1893 – August 1896

    I have just read Michelle Paver’s Arctic ghost story, Dark Matter, and have an imagination full of snowy wastes. How funny that you should be thinking of them too!
