What Were They Thinking?

I’m reblogging this collection of statues, recently seen by Joanne in her Scandinavian travels (posted September). To the Norse warrior, dying in battle, sword in hand, was a very big thing. There was no better way to ensure entry into their version of Heaven. I can’t imagine one could stand before anyone of these magnificent statues without feeling an onrush of emotion. Awesome.

I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

  1. And we worry about what our kids see on TV and video games. Imagine sitting down in a park with your kids for a picnic lunch and these are looming over you. Nana what is the big pussy cat doing to the horsie – just having his dinner dear.
