The Every Evening series derives from an interest in the way we look at and write about nature. The symbolical meanings of natural elements often seem to be predetermined, both in classical as well as modern stories: Every fox is a sly and cunning being, and every winter the land is covered in a thick layer of snow. We seem to have fully learned these symbolical meanings, and have an almost natural way of recognising and understanding them while we read. Yet at the same time, they hardly match the way we experience nature today.
