“daydreaming a nightmare”

by


SOLD

“For days the storm outside had been raging. The man and his family were sheltered in the igloo since it started. He was not worried about having enough food because he had just the day before killed a very large seal, so he knew that there would be food and heat to last.

“He had been very busy since he arrived home from his long journey to the ice edge. After arriving back to his family, he set his gear out to be looked after. He could tell from the sky that there was bad weather approaching, so he did all the chores in preparation for its arrival. Having completed all that was necessary outside, he took the materials needed to mend his harpoon inside the igloo. While he played string games with the children and told them stories, his wife busied herself with the preparation of the seal—rendering the carcass for food, clothing, and heat for the kadulik.

“After he had shown the children many string games, he left them the string to play with on their own, which allowed him to mend the harpoon. As the storm blew and the children played, he sat and listened to everything around him
