    “Much Madness Is Divinest Sense”
    by Emily Dickinson

    Much madness is divinest sense
    To a discerning eye;
    Much sense the starkest madness.
    ’T is the majority
    In this, as all, prevails.
    Assent, and you are sane;
    Demur,—you ’re straightway dangerous,
    And handled with a chain.

    I just posted a quote from a book titled “Blueprints of the Afterlife” on Melinda Foshat’s post http://melindafoshat.wordpress.com/2014/11/07/in-love/ along with a music video about blueprints, before I saw this post Hanne!

    I haven’t read the book, I simply searched on goodreads for quotes about blueprints, as her poem made me think of them for some reason. Just for creative fun, I decided to look further through the quotes listed from the book to post in a comment on your beautiful photo, if I could find one that complimented it well.

    “By now, sympathy for the plight of the polar bears had largely disappeared from public discourse. Instead of beautiful mammals deserving of out preservation efforts, they came to be known as a marauding horde of beasts surfing a climatic anomaly that was laying waste to Canada.”
    ― Ryan Boudinot, Blueprints of the Afterlife

    It mentioned Canada, and I looked online to see if Polar Bears are native to Iceland, but they are not. They are in Iceland zoos though, so it sort of fits. They are lovely looking animals… to further compliment your post creatively, here’s a music video of a man with the spirit of a polar bear, whose lyrics has some themes that go with the idea of a new-world order, like once came in a sense of a new world with the ice age, which I think fits with your post.

    Interesting how your beautiful photo and caption stirred in me the reality of the phrase “a picture is worth a thousand words” huh?

    “Boss Stallion”
    by The Malpractice

    it’s not a rebel yell
    it’s not a battle cry
    it’s not a call to arms
    it wants to make no sound
    it takes a quiet life
    it occupies nothing
    it is the silent kill
    it wants to make no sound

    all it takes is just
    a slightly altered view
    a shift in attitude
    then we can make that change
    accept the modern death
    your human sacrifice
    the exploitation days
    are coming to an end

    drink it up
    go break the body down
    make it sick
    and beat it to the ground
    drink it up
    don’t turn an offer down
    make it sick
    yeah, kick it while its down

    it is a simple plan
    it has a simple goal:
    to bring this system down
    by wasting it’s resource

    let us all become an expense, let us all be seen as ”problems”

    take pride in the collapse
    and celebrate the fall

    drink it up
    go break the body down
    make it sick
    and beat it to the ground
    drink it up
    don’t turn an offer down
    make it sick
    yeah, kick it while its down

    be a foreign body in (put yourself to use)
    the ailing system, bring it down (put yourself to use)
    and we are shrapnel, traveling the veins (put yourself to use)

    drink it up
    go break the body down
    make it sick
    and beat it to the ground
    drink it up
    don’t turn an offer down
    make it sick
    yeah, kick it while its down

    screw, lay waste
    and break each other down
    make it grand
    and watch it as it falls
    screw, lay waste
    and break each other down
    make it grand
    and watch it as it falls

    • Emily Dickinsons poem is a stunner!! Thank you so much for sharing it with me here.

      I’m always fascinated by synchronicity in its many forms, maybe it’s the blueprint of life… 🙂

      Polar bears has much to teach us, as all nature has. To preserve the energy and focus it calmly until the right moment for action is what polar bear brings to my mind.

        You’re welcome!

        I think I’ve mentioned before, but I’m descended from Donnelly clan of Ireland.

        This I haven’t mentioned, but we have quite a few different designs for our coat-of-arms… some of the Donnelly’s who moved to Canada, have a polar bear on their own special family coat-of-arms. It is quite beautiful, as you can see below 🙂

        • Interesting they would chose a polar bear, since there are none in Ireland.

            I think it was a symbolic decision for their migrating to Canada, and making it their new home and their new beginning. The infamous Black Donnellys are known for their activity in Canada after moving from Ireland, but I haven’t done the research to see if the coat-of-arms I shared is what the Black Donnellys claimed. Donnelly means “Dark Courage”, and the Black Donnelly’s are known for extra dark, gang activity.

            And on my father’s side of the family, I hail from Scottish horse thieves and vikings! I suppose scoundrel runs thickly in my blood, though I am mild compared to most 20 somethings. That is fine with me though, I can by in life without cracking any skulls or getting caught up in a bloodfued…

            • wow, that sure is some dark courage running in your blood. lol! If you are ‘the mild one’, sounds like you’ve broken the chain, good on you Cyan.
              I’m viking through and through, haven’t cracked any sculls so far either 🙂

  3. Hanne, your picture is a stunning Rorschach test in nature. The more I look the more I see.

    • What a great way to look at it! When I think of it, I more or less sees that in all my photos… I keep looking at it, until it ‘speaks’ 🙂
      Thank you much, Malcolm. Iceland is another place you’d love to hike!

    I see emergent fins and whalebone remains in this, as well as the breathtaking colours. Your photographs repay a lot of looking.

    • It makes it the more intriguing to me, when the viewer finds their own depths, images and interpretations in what could be just a photo of a landscape but to me too, they hold so many layers and stories untold. I only take a photo when I ‘feel’ the place. Then they to me become like the space between words… Thank you much for your kind comment!
