Christian Loneliness and Hope in the Icelandic West

After the end of the Christian age, the dead are a bit alone at Hellnar.

Truth is, the graveyard has become a pasture, blowing in the wind under the volcano.

And the hope and loss and grief of all the families that have lost men at sea, is a bit at sea, too.

Let us still honour them, and carry them.
