Dwight, great philosophy!

Nothing to do with photography but I am currently reading about Viking era Old Norse, the language of England a thousand years ago. Fascinating!

I recommend "The Lament of Deor", written around 850. It's a poem of sorts telling about several people who experienced misfortunes. The refrain of each stanza is "Þæs ofereode þisses swa mæg"

That passed, may this also.

The message I get from the poem is: Chill. This, too, will pass.

It's interesting to read in the footnote about Weland. Sounds very much like the story of Lohengrin.
