The Heartbreaking and Strangely Uplifting Graveyard in Helena

First, with their church.

Next, with their hay bales. Looks to me like they have been bundled up for harvest themselves.

Next, from their sanctuary.

So must 1100 years of Christian dead comfort themselves when their parishes, and faith, is lost among the living.

Baby Troll

Buðahraun

Another example of how everything comes alive at Midsummer. Note as well, the Old Norse tradition of lifting up the Earth’s skin, making an oath, and setting the skin down to seal it, as told so well in Gunnar’s Sworn Brothers.

From the German Book Club Edition of 1933. Note the Arch.
