I will be sharing some of my live streams here from now on. This one on my secondary channel Bjorn Talks!
Back at the Viking Cabin
I’m back at the Viking cabin.
When I was a younger man, I had a hard time relating to Odin. The Allfather, the king of the Aesir, seemed somewhat gloomy. He was to me a symbol of the past and the death that awaits all men. This has changed…
Concepts that meant nothing to a Norse heathen
