Mountain   Road   City / Fjell   Veg   By
  
Norwegians would go to the mountain with their families every year during the holidays. So called return to nature. They go skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer. Never lonely in the mountain. But on the last day of the holidays, cars driving away from the mountains with no trace of reluctance would be lined up on the Norwegian national highways, which would be mostly quite empty the rest days of the year. For the modern people that are used to a city life, mountain life might just be a form of escape. Yet going down from the mountain is quite a return in it’s real sense.
 
Road is not a place. I t ’s not the hometown we are attached to. It ’s not the foreign land we are longing for. Road is transient. But the transience is forever. Road connects our inseparable past to our inaccessible future. Once we hit the road, we realize that it’s the road we spend most our time on.
 
To enter the city, one must know where the boundary is. There used to be a city wall and moat. Then the wall was pulled down and the moat filled. But the city is still there, and growing. If you are patient, you might not need to go to enter the city. Perhaps one day you’d just open the door, to find yourself in the city already.
