”Right now we are at Lake Tahoe, which is right at the border between California and Nevada. The water is icy, but really clear, and there is a bay with almost round boulders and in the middle there is Bonsai Rock, a larger, not so round boulder with a few tiny trees on it. They cling to the cracks with their small roots, living from the dust that gets blown there. It is so beautiful.
And a bit sad. But to imagine their will to live, clinging to life with all they have, never giving up – that is inspiring.
We managed to squeeze onto a small surface on that rock, sharing a picnic we carried on our heads whilst swimming over.”
