Today's Warriors

This is the first weekend in months that The Swede didn't have a fishing competition and Jambo and I are so happy to have him around! After lunch we drove out to the country and took a walk through the woods on a thousand-year-old Viking road to a burial site consisting of six gigantic rock piles (the actual graves) and the labyrinth my Vikings are following above. We talked a lot about how the Vikings' bodies had returned to the earth and eventually turned into the moss and shrubs we were walking on and the trees all around us, and imagined how the stunning view of the Mälaren from where we stood might have looked to the people who lived there a millennium ago. There wasn't a modern thing in sight, only the plants were new, so the view must have been very much the same.
