the wind-down

Time slows down, time speeds right back up again. It’s been a mildly melancholy day today: my stint at the residency is over, and tomorrow is departure day. Peter, Lovo and Hugo just left, and a few others are away for the weekend, so Soelyst definitely seems as though it’s quietly winding down, for the June crew, at least. There are still a few more days of adventure ahead (off to Finland and Estonia!), but the amazing-ness of this past month in Denmark, particularly all the quiet time here in lovely little Jyderup, and all the new artist-friends I’ve made, makes it hard to leave.

I’ve been remiss in posting photos: probably won’t be able to do this in earnest until back in beautiful West Oakland, but here’s phase one, a few random strays, just for kicks.
