Month for Loki, Day 19: in the deep

inthedeep

What struck me the most about this quote is that is unattributed except for

written by him

The Universe is funny.

When I saw this on my media feed this evening, it had all the earmarks of  a message as if it was written by Him.

For it is true, you know:

If you seek Him, you will find Him

in the depths between

All these places you’ve come to know

And all those places you’ve yet to go.

A comforting thought.

I saw this on a friend’s Facebook wall:

icelandiclullaby

I find this sort of thing fascinating.

There’s something dark and delightful about these words; I want to know what the rest of the words are to this lullaby.

Was something lost in translation?

Perhaps there’s a metaphor or idiom conveyed here and its context has simply been lost.

I mean, call me odd, but I can see how ‘pig’ could almost be considered a term of endearment.

Baby pigs can be cute:

black-eyed pig

This is a black-eyed pig.

cute black eyed pig

And this is referred to as the ‘teacup size’ of black-eyed pig.

See what I mean?  *squeee!*

And lest we forget, there are cultures wherein pigs were considered very valuable.  Most livestock was valued, but research shows that pigs may have been considered especially so in Scandinavian, Germanic, and Celtic culture.

As for Fall into a pit full of ghosts: perhaps the word spirit would be a better word choice to convey the intended meaning than ghosts, or even a word that connotes fairies or even dream-visions.  

In short, there is no way to know the context or meaning of this fragment…

But I am having a good time pondering the interesting possibilities.

That being said, I can see how this might be comforting.
