Tjakttjadálvvie – The Season of a Journey
The sun wanders away, leaving us in silence and longing. The reindeer are sorted into smaller herds. Cautiously they wander to their winter grazing lands; the ground is sensitive and we must tread on her with care. She sleeps under the glittering blanket of snow; the northern lights – the light of the eyes of those who have left us – watch over us; the stars gather in recognizable patterns so that we find our way back, to the new year that is coming.
