Anneliis Lepp: No point in doubting

Not so long ago I ate a fortune cookie a girlfriend gave me, hoping that it will predict something nice. I felt like one would on Midsummer Night, going to sleep with a posy of flowers under the pillow in the hopes of a brighter morning.

Tiki Muir: SAGA. Iceland: Art and Narrative
