Were we birds / Var vi fåglar – Rebecca Jansson
In the fall of 2017, a small bird was sent to fly from Bogotá, Colombia - all the way across the Atlantic Ocean, to me, in Sweden. The bird was sent by my friend Alejandra. She wanted the little bird to have one last flight to me and to colder climate, and to awaken from years of dormant stillness.
Unfortunately, the little bird never arrived.
”I believe the bird I sent you never arrived to its destination and never will. As it will remain lost in its way to you, I would like to write these words describing it from my memory. The envelope was white, and it had a blue card in it, with few words, (those I do not remember). Attached to it, was a little stamp with a colombian bird. I believe the bird was green and had a few parts painted in yellow and blue. I really liked the idea of this old static bird having a new flight, migrating to colder places, watching different landscapes, to meet a new friend. Also I think it was beautiful to take this antique technology, the stamp, which is supposed to be on the outside of the envelope, and save it inside as a treasure. But well..”
