7 Artists On the Arctic

Listening to nature while waiting for answers from Paris –


Evgenia Arbugaeva: Tiksi (2013)

watch: 7 Artists On the Arctic


Guido van der WerveNummer Acht: Everything is going to be alright (2007)



I turn yet again to Jan Zwicky


There is, said Pythagoras, a sound

the planet makes: a kind of music

just outside our hearing, the proportion

and the resonance of things – not

the clang of theory or the wuthering

of human speech, not even

the bright song of sex or hunger, but

the unrung ringing that

supports them all.

    I agree with Suellyn. The most appropriate posts seem to come just when I need them, reminding me to slow down, breath, and look. Thank you for this today.
