Postcards From Iceland, #3 – Kissing Icebergs

Postcards From Iceland, #3 – Kissing Icebergs

Dear friend,

I was mesmerized watching the icebergs make their final journey to the sea from the Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon. It’s a humbling experience.

I suppose it puts all of life into perspective really; we are all of us on a journey somewhere. This iceberg, looking more like a pair of lovers kissing, reminded me of the most important journey of all — the one I share with my wife.

We are well on our way to the sea, like the icebergs, holding on to each other and watching the magic of the world unfold around us.

#3 – Kissing Icebergs

This is a series of pics about Iceland, so you should expect lots of pictures of ice 🙂


Postcards from Iceland is a series of 52 blogposts – delivered one per week – exploring the magic of Iceland through a series of Personalized Digital Postcards highlighting the stunning Icelandic landscape, the colorful cityscapes of Reykjavik; including the prolific urban art scene, and the mystery of Viking magic!

The postcard pictures are from my trip there for the Summer Solstice in 2017. We enjoyed a week exploring the country, driving south across the bottom of the island all the way to Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon. Of course we experienced the Golden Circle and the beauty of Reykjavik. Each of these posts includes a free wallpaper picture that can be used on your computer or mobile device. Feel free to share and enjoy these original pictures for non commercial use.

* This series of blog posts is dedicated to my amazing wife, with whom I’ve shared so many great adventures.

Icelandic Rune Poems & Magic

With the first sixteen Postcards From Iceland blog posts, I’ll also include one verse from The Icelandic Rune Poem, which has been called the most systemized of the rune poems. Rune poems are thought to encapsulate esoteric knowledge of the symbol. Such interpretations are used in modern divination and meditation. Learn More?
