My island is this land that I walk or ride each day. It is three miles wide – the distance from river Lielupe to the Baltic Sea. I would laugh in disbelief if you would tell me years ago that I’ll live in a village and walk the same paths each day. Yet here I am.
My interview with British writer Stephen Rutt. His debut book “The Seafarers: A Journey Among Birds” is available in the Sea Library.
Do visionaries – artists, writers, musicians, – have a responsibility to give us new languages and tools to actually do something about our deteriorating world? I asked. Artists David Bramwell, Justin Brice Guariglia, Olafur Eliasson, Antony Gormley and Jonathan Meese, writers Jay Griffiths, Caspar Henderson, Dahr Jamail and Barry Lopez, poet Craig Santos Perez, philosopher Graham Harman, and scientist Peter Wadhams wrote me back.
Summer reading in the Sea Library has been sorted out. Here are books coming out in June, July and August. Outstanding octet!
