This small book can
easily be read in one sitting. It is not a novel, but it is a
collection of thoughts on the necessity of stillness - the ability to
go everywhere by going nowhere. In this day and age where everyone is
constantly hurrying somewhere, it is a breath of fresh air to read
that it is okay - in fact, it is encouraged - to sit all day in a
room looking out on an unchanging view. The 'all day' is an
exaggeration, half-an-hour is quite sufficient, but the message is
the same: we need to be still to appreciate where we are going; we
need to go Nowhere in order to go Somewhere.
The book is beautifully
illustrated with photographs from the Icelandic photographer Eydís
S. Luna Einarsdóttir.
