flying whales art print
A long time ago, kai wrote a story called 'whales'. Which he published in one of his earlier books. As we were going through his notebooks a few weeks ago, we found all the original versions of it that he'd written. this is the one we like best of all...-)
(We've also put it in the 2024 calendar which you can order here. That's how much we like it...)
i remember when whales had wings, she said, & they’d fly through the air like huge storm clouds. the skies used to be filled with them, before we came along. whatever happened? i said. it got to be too noisy with all the airplanes & other stuff, she said, so they flew into the ocean & they’ve been there ever since. but i send them quiet thoughts every day, she added, & hope they come back soon. because it is a smaller place without them flying where everyone can see.
