northern night in november by NordicBlackbird

From the Shetland series -

Lerwick, Shetland, Scotland, UK

Lerwick’s old harbour around the 18th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month… 09.
No horizontal rain, no distress calls from fishermen… all is quiet on 60N.

“nordicblackbird” – pirate, poet, visual artist, maritimer… day-dreamer, nomadic heart par excellence :)). I write and breathe on 60N, “my” bonhoga [spiritual home] with a penchant for world collaborative adventures. Welcome, bonjour to my nordic garden :).
