It’s back! The return of the sun (Uummannaq, 2009). That’s a book title, right there! But this was an important day. The whole school prepared sun signs, posters and… yeah, you name it, to mark the return of the sun. These photos are a few years old now, and all in the open, so I’m going to post a few photos of simply the best kids and teenagers in the world, starting with the young ones – now in their early twenties!
If you’ve ever wondered why I write police stories, then this photo just says it all. They were always brilliant at getting involved in the community, and leading the procession of sun worshipers up the hill to greet the sun was just another example. Love this photo. I’m not saying my eyes are moist while writing this… but hey… move along now. Nothing to see here.
And we’ll finish off with a younger me and my sunny disposition!

I love this! It’s really special. Feels a bit like in UK at the moment. Here in the Midlands sunset is 17.02 tomorrow – slowly slowly 2 minutes per day now until the clocks go forward. Not as dramatic as Greenland but once we have the second day in February things feel like they are changing. Still loving the Greenland books, a bit of respite from my PhD. More novels please! I am missing Konstabel Fenna Brongaard and Jon Østergård and his wolves. Still. I’ll always have Maratse. Best wishes, June

Hi June. Good to hear from you! Pleased I can give you a break from the PhD, too. 🙂 Fenna and Jon? Phew… working on it. Petra seems to have taken over a bit at the moment. 😉 Keep me posted on your PhD!
