Walking on the Shore of an Ancient Sea

It’s always a great day to walk out on the shore of the sea, where the seals and eiðars once swam. The sea might change its level, but that’s a bonus for us.

And the eiðars demonstrate just what it was like here long ago.

Easy does it!

The Wealth of Dwarves and Men in Iceland

Ah, volcanoes.

They make beautiful things.

Or beautiful things appear in the mind.

In a remote valley in Iceland, under a volcano, one can spend an afternoon among treasures.

I sure did.

The wealth of the dwarves, my ancestors called this stuff.

 

The wealth of men, too, I think.

And the wealth of the water..


And mystery enough.

And light within the stone..

This is old wisdom.

Totemic wisdom. Like this sheep amulet below.

This is the deeps of the mind and body, meeting in the light of the air.

This is what you get when you walk straight into the Earth. You’ll know where when you’re there.
