Það hefur verið mikið að gera hjá okkur systrunum síðustu mánuði. Auk skóla og ýmissa annarra verkefna höfum við unnið að útgáfu Plöntunnar á ganginum. Við höfum nú talað við prentsmiðju og fengið tilboð og mun sagan að öllum líkindum koma út á prenti í nóvember á þessu ári. Stefnan er þar að auki að halda sýningu í tengslum við útgáfuna. Við munum flytja fleiri fréttir af því þegar nær dregur. Þangað til ætlum við að halda síðunni lifandi með fregnum af undirbúningi útgáfunnar og fleiru. 

Síðunni verður þó læst í nokkra daga á meðan við endurbætum netútgáfu sögunnar.

We’ve been very busy the last couple of months. In addition to school and other projects, we’ve been working on the publication of The Plant in the Hallway. Now we’ve spoken to a printing company and the story will in all probability be published in print in November this year. Moreover, our aim is to set up an exhibition when the book is published. We’ll release more news in due course. Until then we’re going to keep this site alive with reports about the preparation of the publication and more. 

However, the site will be locked for a few days while we improve the internet publication of the story.

One of the most memorable days of my childhood was when I found out that my own country wasn’t the only country in the world. – – – My uncle was going abroad. 
Abroad?
My uncle was widely travelled and experienced and he explained to me. 
Look, Örvar, this is the world. Here is our small country. You see what a small part we are of the whole world!
My life was never the same after this discovery. I had always thought our house, the garden and the street quite big enough for me … but when I thought about my limited surroundings in proportion to the world, everything become so tiny and insignificant.
