The winds howling through this glacial pass were fierce. Like Iceland, life is full of stormy weather; temperatures drop, winds pick up, rain and sleet drive us to take shelter.
Like weather, life’s little storms can come crashing on us unexpectedly. The key is to understand that these gales are a part of life, You can no more separate strife from human beings than you can the atmosphere from Earth.
How do you survive inclement weather – figurative or literal.? Be prepared, Make sure you have a safe harbor, and above all else, remember …This too shall pass.
#11 – Stormy Glacier
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?

Sól er skýja skjöldr
ok skínandi röðull
ok ísa aldrtregi.
Sun = shield of the clouds
and shining ray
and destroyer of ice.
