“Desert. Sand blowing in eyes, back bent down, limps heavy of waiting. Wallpapers reflecting the light beams from cars outside on the streets. Hands reaching warmth under the blanket or resting on thermostat. When rejection and abandoning has beaten you repeatedly they sculpt themselves in human memory, all the way through your body. Landscape in Tuula`s eyes is silent, days resemble one another, then suddenly a song blossoms in this desert, like a flower waking up at night. In that song she reveals herself to us. What kind of a prison has she built with only one feel – fear of abandoning? “

Congratulations Emilia!
