A sort of a homecoming, far away from home.
Everybody knows starships. From the Enterprise to the Millenum Falcon to the Jefferson Starship soundtracks… but do you know sunships? Those magical vessels that have the sun on board? Those ships, where portholes are made of a sun? Come aboard, enjoy the trip!
So, Ganthi isn’t alone. Its brother sleeps there on its side, back to back. And they probably both dream of adventures yet to come. I could sit there for ages and watch them gently sway in the waves.
And maybe you know the feeling of just being invited to be part of a great play about real life. And when you enter the stage, you realize that you are both the main actor, the extra and the set.
Ganthi, the fisher boat in the Donsö harbour, had that glowing passion for its red hull. And in midst of the nordic blue skies and sea, it reminded me of the “Sleeping beauty” tale. Should I have woken it with a kiss?
