There Are No Limits to Yellow
Sigrid doesn’t really notice old people. Why should she? One day, however, she bumps into the old, fragile Marika, nearly knocking her down outside the supermarket. Marika is not well: almost everything that could be wrong with her, is. Sigrid offers to carry her shopping bags home, and the beginning of a new friendship unfolds.
What is it about Marika that makes Sigrid keep going back to see her, continue to carry her shopping bags? Is it because Marika has been painting all her life, because she became a painter despite everything telling her she shouldn’t?
As Marika explains to Sigrid: there will always be obstacles in the way, for those who want to create. But in her words, whatever you find blocking your path – throw it the hell out.
There Are No Limits to Yellow is a novel about an unexpected friendship and artistic justification. A story about the things we must sacrifice in order to make room in our lives to create.
