SOON TO BE FROZEN BENEATH SKY DEEP LAYERS OF WINTER ICE

49 days since I left the Arctic: I keep dreaming of and imagining what the reality of Petuniabukta- so colourful and light-filled in August- is now. Low light, dazzling rainbow sunrise and sets, daylight hours approx. 2, layers of ice and snow stacking up, fjords becoming almost static, frozen for the dark Arctic winter (most of the year), Pucifer the friendly fox darting around in her snowy fur camouflage, searching for specs of nutrition. Will the Polar bears be visiting our cabins whilst we are away, what do they think of humans inhabiting the bay? Helicopters, motor boats, rifle and flare practice… We think they are sacred and aim to affect their incredible environment as little as possible.

PAST PRESENT FUTURE

THIS BIOSPHERE OF TIME CONSTANTLY FLOWING

BETWEEN ICE AGE AND ICE AGE

WHEN THE UNIVERSE DECIDES THAT ONCE MORE EARTH SHALL BECOME FROZEN

THE ALIVE WILL DIE, LOST TO THE MAMMOTH PERMAFROST

THE DEAD WILL REMAIN BELOW THE SURFACE, MORE DEEPLY EMBEDDED

AND SPIRITS;

CAN THEY REMAIN FREE WHILST ALL ELSE IS ENCASED IN THE FREEZE?
