Kristján Einarsson lived here in Djupalæk.
It’s a bit more exposed than a North American or Continental poet’s house. Here’s the kind of poem you write in a place like this:

Mind you, water is tight these days:
Lots in the Atlantic, but for fresh water for the sheep, it has to be brought in in plastic tanks. Even though it falls, almost daily, from the sky. Isn’t this the real poverty and isolation?
