Have You Been to Iceland? 🇮🇸

Life has been busy.

Ásgeir

A sharp left life turn and here I am.  Will explain more at a later time…

So, last week was Iceland week.

Why, you ask, was it Iceland week?

Well, because I attended two Iceland produced art events and they were both stellar.

I would like to recommend them to you now.

1) Ásgeir Trausti Einarsson, known professionally as, Ásgeir, the fabulous former child musical prodigy. He has the voice of an angel and his music relaxes and inspires me. Here is a dose for you. Warning, it’s pure Icelandic bliss sadness. And here’s another. Enjoy your Ásgeir Youtube hole you will inevitably circle down. Please let me know your thoughts.

Woman At War

2) Woman At War, the Icelandic entry for the 2018 foreign film Oscar. This is one of the most creative, unpredictable, funny and prescient films I’ve seen in a long time (well, except for Us, but I will wait to dig into that gem). A strong woman lead who is a cross between an environmental superhero and proponent for the arts. The film lightly, but seriously, deals with issues of environmental destruction and immigrant persecution but truly shows itself to be about love and sacrifice. Go see it, you won’t be sorry.

Thank you Iceland! You made my week.
