- One day I will live in a forest, 2017

1 to 19 August

One day I will live in a forest
with goats, rabbits, a dog and a river.
I will have fish come visit me every spring and winter, and in autumn and summer, we would be off to journey islands and valleys, mountains and skies.
I will learn how to talk to dragons and listen to flowers, bears, mosquitoes and moss.
I will invite every adventure to my home in the forest with my goats, rabbits, a dog and a river, and tea would be served.
