I often describe my island as a long sausage – so narrow, so close we all live to the water’s edge.
So we build boats to weave friendship and connections.
We have special boats here on this latitude, handcrafted and modelled on the viking one… Wood and rivets, kabe, hamle- humli- humblyband.
…Wood and rivets, kabe, hamle- humli- humblyband. To me it sounds like a rengaine, earth leitmotive… And when I tie it to a friend, our nomadism braves each wave from Bressay Sound to the Firth of Lorn :-))
What does it mean to the nomad? …An opening to our own world.
