“In the Icehotelâs tool shed one can see, scribbled on the wooden wall, a saying: âYou must believe in what does not exist, for what exists now, hasnât always been there eitherâ.
AnnaSofia MÃ¥Ã¥g whispered the same wise words to me, gently and with confidence. She did so in a moment of uncertainty, as we stood by our work desk which was buried under papers, empty coffee mugs and sketches of what this yearâs Main Hall might look like.
This old saying captures the quintessence of the Icehotel spirit; this is what a strong wish is made of.
We will surely make our own wishes by the well in our secret garden; in fact, ours will be the very first of the upcoming seasonâ¦ Beware though! If you see us pottering around our garden, donât bother to ask us what we wished for, as we will keep it all to ourselves.”
