The Meaning of Dawn in Iceland

In North America, we look East to see light sweep away darkness.

Not so in Iceland. There it daily sweeps away the inhuman world and makes the world safe for human life… precariously. Darkness, as the church and the fenceposts show, is a more inner thing, not without but within.

      It is! One thing that makes it beautiful is that access to the country is open. Private property rights do not often erase public ones, so you can get to stuff. That’s wonderful, too.

        Very cool. Property owners are required to provide access to significant sights. You can wander over much of the country. Closing gates helps.
