Eskimo Dreams

 Maria Helena Vieira da SilvaKô & Kô, 1933, thanks to Arthur van Kruining

Living under the Tuscan sun is usually a pleasant experience, but this has been
such a terribly hot and dry Summer that we are all dreaming of rain and cool weather.
I am leaving next week for a short trip to colder climates; in the meanwhile
I sit in front of the fan listening to Kate Bush's 50 words for snow
and travel with my mind to icy lands

Associatively, last winter we saw an amazing movie called Atarnarjuat, the fast runner
which I highly recommend to anyone in an Arctic mood...
