This thoughtful reminder of the splendour of everyday happiness made its way into the nuannaarpoq pipeline long before the world we love was swept by pandemic. How many of those in quarantined ‘exile’, or ill, or on their deathbed may be recalling with longing those ordinary joys?

If you are not among them, remind yourself that a life is also an accumulation of everydays.

‘Isn’t it the texture of everyday life that’s recalled with the most poignant longing by those who are in exile, or ill, or on their deathbed?’
