While I don’t normally like to do a link to a link, I am doing it today. The Viking Archive posted a link entry to a compilation of Icelandic literature, the Bibliography of Icelandic Literature. The website is in Icelandic, so to navigate remember that Sögur means “stories, sagas” and Bækur means “books”.
I was scrolling through my feed, when I saw the headline “Why this is the week to be in Iceland (and learn about sagas)” and I could only think of Friðríkʀ goði and his wife and how lucky they were to be over there right now. One day, I hope to get back to Iceland.
We have returned from Pennsic. This was my second Pennsic, my first being thirteen years ago. My household, the Loonacy, went for both weeks, leaving Friday, July 27th, arriving just before sunset the next day, and we left Thursday, August 9th, overnighted 45min away, then got home today.
It was overall, quite good. I got to achieve many of the things I wanted to achieve. I met new people, and spent time with quite a few people I care deeply about. There were some bad parts and some disappointments, but they did not ultimately sour the event for me. I also got to perform several times, and contributed an Old Norse poem to an elevation.
And now I’m going to relax a little at home. I should probably do lunch. 🙂
