After a lifetime of sea-faring, Oskar Hansen has many observations to share. In retirement he sifts through experiences to bring in his harvest. His vignettes are concretely personal while touching on universal themes. I think perhaps his spirit was toughened by tough circumstances in his early years, so he learned to appreciate what life brought him and drink it in like a sponge. His body of work is panoramic and kaleidoscopic: it will broaden your horizons.
