Dear Friend,

Two things in art, literature, and life, intrigue me: angles, and contrast. This picture my wife took of Hallgrímskirkja has both.

Angles and contrast annotate the world we live in. Consider the humble stop sign – it’s bright red and distinctly octagonal. Those two attributes tell us a lot, and we usually pay heed to its instruction.

I think we all need to pay more attention to angles and contrast. What’s his/her angle? How do they contrast with those who’ve come before, or those who may follow?

Angles and contrast – more important than you might think.

#15 – Angles & Contrast


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?
