I have been traveling in Iceland this week and having my mind quietly blown by a landscape so full of fire and ice and sea, size and solitude and surprise, that it just carves me out as a glacier carves a landscape, leaving space for new wonder. This is the country that decided not to build a road in 2014 because it would have disturbed elf habitat, the country where you can climb a volcano and look down into the crater and across at a glacier in one direction and the ocean in the other, as I did today, the country where Yoko Ono built her peace tower, Jules Verne set journey to the center of the earth, and Peter Jackson first wanted to film Lord of the Rings. Today I wrote mysterious little poems and collected magic rocks. Tomorrow, more wonders. . .
