Prologue: I’d really love to answer your question, but honestly, I have no idea how this sheep got on that roof. A running-jump performance, I presume; a courageous act and fresh interpretation of „The grass is always greener on the other side“.
That’s what might happen when you’re born under a lucky star: One day in February, your husband, laughing, asks you to look out of the kitchen window, pronto, straightaway. Now, what’s on? A sheep show, right beside your neighbor’s chimney. Immediately, I grab my camera, put on my rubber boots an rush forward. Target: The red house close to the village church.
It’s hilarious. Our sheep is still there, stubbornly savoring today’s menu. A living lawnmower, upon closer examination, unblinking eye, stoically pulling out dried up blades of grass, at an angle of approximately 45 degrees.
Epilogue: My Faroe Islands proudly presents its short movie „Sheep on a Shaggy Grass Roof“, director’s cut. When and how the sheep was brought back down to earth? Not a clue. I just know that it disappeared from the picture later that day. Motive? Educated guess: The grass is always greener on the other side.
