The Arctic Circle Residency, Svalbard, Norway

Those who cross the seas change their climate but not their character. — Roman Proverb

We layer up with our wool socks, sweaters, shells and coats on top of coats and hoist the sails. The fresh air moves the ship and fills my lungs. It is in this moment I realize this is one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. Positioned on the bow of the ship, I watch the shifting landscape pass by revealing sculpted icebergs, ancient rock formations, and turquoise glaciers. I surrender to the rocking motion of the tide and let my senses swallow my surroundings.
