summer tales

If you visit the Dutch coast this summer, and you happen to run into it, you should definitely visit the Zomersprookjes project. Some sixty giant glass shells, every single one unique in shape, strewn around the beach, and each telling its own story or poem. You can sit in the sun, with the noise of the surf everywhere, one ear glued to the glass, your toes making spirals in the sand, while a voice tells you about mermaids, or ships, or winds or waves. Or rootlessness. You can listen together,
or alone.
And sometimes, a story grabs you so, you might get stuck inside it.
