One of four pieces in the evening “On new ground”

 

Ótta is an old Icelandic word for the time between 3 and 6 in the morning. During these hours when most people are fast asleep there are some who do not find the sense of piece and quiet to settle down. Insistent thoughts race through their minds like speeding cars on a highway.

How thick are the walls around us? Are we in sync with the person on the other side? What is reality and where do deams take over?
