Iceland’s Secret Bilberry Team
Count the legs. Very secret work!
What, you didn’t think they ate grass, did you? In this rain? The Icelandic summer has to have some perks!
Note that internally it is shaped like brain tissue, but externally it is shaped like a heart.
And the beach is eroded brain. You are just a thought here. It is very liberating!
Your Christmas depends on it.
So many Icelandic men of my father’s generation thought they could stay on the land if they built a nice concrete house to keep their families out of the wind, but they did it the Icelandic way, with salt beach sand, and it fell apart.
Women still come, as the snagged necklet of clear glass beads and fishing line below shows, but, as the snag shows, they leave without these baubles, too.
And that is one of the forces that powers the world.
In Iceland, it’s never just “a rainy day.” There’s always something fun to do. That’s the farm in the distance, in Seyðisfjörður. The escapees are in the foreground. It’s a happy day of freedom.
On the open road.
With a view of their ancestral home. Nice.
