Þat man hon fólkvíg fyrst í heimi,
er Gullveig geirum studdu
ok í höll Hárs hana brendu;
þrysvar brendu þrysvar borna,
opt, ósjaldan, þó hon enn lifir.

I like the aesthetic of tiny little Baltic fertility moons, dangling from my earlobes. ———————————————————————————

“If we wrangle with Nature, we are usually in the wrong. For Nature does nothing that is useless or in vain—nihil facit frustra nec supervaeaneum. We are only temporal, finite, fleeting beings, creatures of a dream: and our existence passes away like a shadow. What do we want with an intellect to grasp things that are infinite, eternal, absolute?” — Arthur Schopenhauer

Here you have me carrying my baby boy Smaug. I was about to write oldie but had to stop myself because this is actually from this year. Feels like a lifetime ago though. It really amazes me how much can happen in just a short passing of time. How things can seem like they happened to a different you in a very different time. I already feel like a very much more grown woman than I was in this picture. I sure have weathered some. And maybe mostly for the better. Or so I should hope. ———————————————————————————

Is it Yule yet? 🌲
My favourit picture of Melkor that I still strongly consider making yulecards of. I might make a few for my fellow crazy cat lady friends. ———————————————————————————

Where the rocks and ruins have been silent, but humming, witnesses to the ages that passed them. ———————————————————————————

I roam where voices can be heard, emitting from the dark and deep. I feel at home where the darkness creeps, and where at the moss I can sleep. I am feral and with teeth, and I will always be free. ———————————————————————————
Living out a huldre dream in Norway with thanks to @noordhravan for capturing it.

Water in motion. Does water ever stay still? It doesn’t, goes that saying, but I think even water has still moments. I am finally moving out of my own stillness, starting to rapidly move. “Finally” I say, but I am allowed to give myself some salt. Thing is, and this is something we all have to learn on our own, is that we all have different paths towards learning. We all move at different speeds, in different streams, and from very different spots. We can’t and shouldn’t compare ourselves and our growth and path to others, for what’s the damn point? We aren’t the same and we have different stories all of us. So when I start feeling pressured by what I see around me, from people I love even, that my path is not “good enough”, that my way of learning is lesser than what is “accepted” today, that’s quite frankly fucking bullshit. Or so I am finally learning. I am privileged to learn like I am, that I can do these things that has my interest at the moment while I still (STILL) wonder about a futur. Maybe a future that does indeed involve a more well looked upon education. A stable career. But right now that is not so. And that is fine because I am moving. ———————————————————————————

Tustrup, my beloved home of a gravefield. I have played and explored and dreamed there as a child, since my father first took me there. 24 years later and I am still in awe and at home and ease amongst the graves, amongst the ancient slabs of rock.
This is just a moody little cellphone shot, but I think it conveys the mood of the place quite well. ———————————————————————————

I anger. I bleed. I cut out my rage. I offer it up and hope for peace. ———————————————————————————
