Entering the Land of Silence
By Cornelia Altgård

Much of our lives we mainly rely on our vision to understand the world. We took a silent walk in the darkness of a clear night. This shared experience proved to have a big impact on all of us that walked together, it offered us to use our other senses as well as a serving as reminder that we need and rely on each other (not just us humans but all our relations)
