Approximately 20 days left. Already this brings a heaviness to my heart. My time away brings the awareness forward… While in the end I was in love with Taos, New Mexico I was happy to move on, break up. Iceland feels profound, like coming home. Like my first time visiting Taos. And while I enjoy Reykjavik,… Continue reading Gullkistan
Vatn means water. I split taxi faire with two artists also heading to Gullkistan. Turns out Gull means: gold. Kistan means chest. Chest of gold (think pirate treasure) is where I am staying and that is the name of one of the mountains near-by. Day 2 (Gullkistan): Everyone went to bed early last night. it… Continue reading Trip to Laugarvatn

Two points are missing, but nice just the same. My plan was/is to use them in photo shoots and make moulds off of the antlers,… Continue reading Iceland AiR support
The excitement grows daily. Asking myself, Hva∂an ert þú? (Where are you from?) I suppose I am still searching… Maybe I would actually ask: Hva∂an ég þú? or þar er ég frá? 8 days remaining for the Iceland or Bust kickstarter campaign.
