Vikings

So tomorrow Ben and I go on a raid to the Kerama Islands. We have been spending our evenings eating lamb, drinking, and watching the Vikings.  We are full of fury and ancient Gods.

Sparrows eat the rice crop. Is this a sign?

The weather is terrible. Strong winds and high seas. Would Ragnar have cared?

So tomorrow we set off to new lands. The boat is strong. She comes from Viking heritage. However, I am scared. The sea is wild, the surf is high, the seabirds scream on the skerries. Ben is young and fearless. I sit on the cold shore bemoaning the loss of my Ring-giver.

It is November. Is this the right time to sail 40 miles over the furious ocean? Did Ragnar worry about these things?

Before the sacrifice.

Before the sacrifice.

Hey,  what the hell. Valhalla sounds pretty good.
