Shy abruptly awakens from a very confusing, and a bit disturbing, dream. She does not fully understand it at this time. Perhaps she never will. Or mayhap she will find the answer if the Norns choose to reveal it.

Shy always enjoys learning new words, and this one is now her favourite. It is definitely the biggest word she has ever heard. She does not mind sounding precocious.

Earlier today (5th of March) Shy saw varr, the newest member of her crew, playing his guitar and singing to a group of teenagers. She paused to listen to his song, and could not help but to chortle. After all, he would know!

While horseback riding a far distance out in the countryside, on her way to visit with her good friend Breda, Shy came across a musical gathering. She decides to watch and listen for awhile. She is very glad that she did.

Shy can tell some of the younger members of her crew are feeling a bit unsettled. Their feelings of unrest increase with the passing of each Oktober day. This is not unusual, and it is expected. Especially knowing the number of years that have gone by.

Shy will do her best to ease the building tempest. A Call goes out to the Wild, telling them to gather deep in the forest, at the special meeting spot, where the ritual shall take place. The time has come for styrkeskikk.

Time spent wrapping holiday gifts is something Shy truly enjoys. She never views it as a chore, but sees it more as a creative outlet. Armed with rolls of decorative holiday paper, a multitude of ribbons and bows in assorted colours, scissors, and tape, she begins the fun process.

While in the midst of the pleasurable activity Shy begins to hum a delightful Norwegian folk tune. It tells the tale of mice preparing for Christmas. The parents warn their children to stay away from the mouse trap.


Musevisa


Musevisa (The Mouse Song) English Translation
When nights are getting longer, and lakes will freeze to ice;
Mother Mouse warns strongly about a foul device:
"If we avoid the mouse trap, we'll have naught to fear
We'll all be celebrating at Christmas time this year."

Chorus:
Hey and howdy and toodeladdeloo!
A Merry Christmas season is good for me and you!
Hey and howdy and toodeladdeloo!
A Merry Christmas season is good for me and you!

Mother Mouse is busy, she is a tidy soul
She'll clean the walls and ceiling in this cozy little hole
As young mice dance a polka, their tails sweep out the place
A grubby house at Christmas is a positive disgrace.

Chorus

And finally the evening, the youngsters all await
They know they'll have permission to stay up very late
A toe-less boot is spruced up with nails that they have found
And then some flimsy cobwebs which they can drape around.

Chorus

Father Mouse now tells them that they should form a ring
"Let's dance around this old boot and hear our Granny sing
Each mouse should use its right paw to take its neighbour's tail
Then listen as Old Granny sings a lovely fairy tale."

Chorus

A tasty hazel nut will make a splendid Christmas feast
A rather tiny tidbit, but that is not the least
There's sticky candy paper, a spicy Yuletide ham
They all can savour its bouquet, and taste some apple jam.

Chorus

Old Granny's Christmas present is a brand-new rocking chair
A hollowed-out potato which her kin have gnawed with flair
Now Granny starts her singing, the youngsters sing along
They always love to join her in their favourite Christmas song.

Chorus

Old Granny's getting tired, soon comes the early dawn.
As morning is approaching she cannot help but yawn:
"Christmas is a lot of fun for each and every mouse
Be careful of the mousetraps in this trap-infested house!"

Chorus

And Grandmother says gravely, "It's time to take a nap.
Just dream about the Yuletide and not that awful trap."
While Father Mouse is keeping watch, the children try to sleep.
They hum some Christmas carols instead of counting sheep.

Chorus:
Hey and howdy and toodeladdeloo!
A Merry Christmas season is good for me and you!
Hey and howdy and toodeladdeloo!
A Merry Christmas season is good for me and you!

On her way to visit Victor at his shop, Half-Moon Furnishings, Shy decides to stop in for a few minutes at the White Stag Pub to make sure all is well, and to see if Gunnar (or whomever is on duty) needs anything. Not long after entering she hears a song playing on a communications device that one of the male customers has in hand while he sits at the end of the bar. Glancing at the man's cell phone as she passes by, the female Viking realizes it is one of those 'music videos' others have spoken about just last year. It is a sad song to her ears, and has her thinking about the past for the third time today.

Hallo

The Call to the Wild has been sent out, and Shy's crew immediately heed their alpha's Call by gathering at the secret meeting place deep in the woods of her territory. While waiting for their leader to arrive they begin singing one of their favourite songs; one of the men pretends to be the female victim of those lyrics.

Shy silently stands in the shadows of the forest casually observing her crew as they entertain themselves while biding their time. She finds their antics extremely amusing, and chooses not to interrupt the goings-on.

Whispering to herself she quips, "Hvordan do I get the feeling they have actually sang that to a few unsuspecting females?"

Shy and Victor have been having fun with an activity they call the moondance.

Somebody went shopping at the musikk store again. When she has the opportunity (perhaps with good timing, for that is important) she plays the 45 record for Victor. Nei doubt she will sing along with the song, too.

Shy is always happy and eager to do this with him.

Unable to sleep, and done with tossing and turning, Shy quietly makes her way downstairs to the living room after making the decision to play one of the smaller vinyls from her record collection. She definitely likes the female singer, Barbra.

What a marvelous day for an adventure. A special carriage ride to a countryside village where they will attend an amusing skit about Norge. Shy's best friend Breda will be portraying a woman named Sigrid.

Breda had covertly informed Shy that the children will be hearing about the Julenissen and some of the other Yule traditions of their homeland. She is well aware that Shy has been handing down the tales and information to her family over the years.

Now Shy is just as excited as the children are to see the production, which helps in keeping the Norwegian tale of the Nissen alive!

It has been a while since she last visited the Rolig Strand. She should not have waited so long. As she steps up, placing her booted foot onto that first weather-worn wooden plank of the pier, she realizes that repairs are going to be needed once Spring finally settles in. Graceful strides continue toward the end of the long dock, coming to a halt just two planks away from the waters edge. It is here that she takes a light lean against the ash-coloured railing. Her gaze scans the horizon, as if she is looking for one of her Viking longships in the distance.

A familiar, albeit faint sound from the beach has her glancing to her right. Oh! A nod to the young wolf that is patiently standing in a spot where the long, tan grass meets the soft white sand. A meeting of the minds takes place as they continue to stare at each other for several minutes, locked in thoughts. Soon enough the wolf turns and lopes off with a distinct message from the female Viking. A message that will be delivered to the rest of The Wild.

When the Ulv is out of sight her ice-blue gaze drifts to the Sea once again, peering toward the horizon. An ancient song begins to play in her mind; moments later she starts to hum the melody, allowing it to flow across the water. The tune sounds a bit melancholic, yet it holds great mystery and a deep meaning.

And then she begins to sing, "En ravn fluer inn i mneskinn. Den kalde snstorm. Han vet meldingen har ankomme. Den kongerike skal brenne ned til grunnen.

"Hekser og demoner har kommet til nekte, det skjnnheten og fred i vrt hjemland. Vi vet at meldingen har komme, og Kongen i Nord vil stige."


Song of the North

The Harvest Moon's pull is strong, calling to Shy.

She will answer its call, but only after the children are safely tucked into their beds, snuggled warm beneath the covers, and story time is finished. One-by-one, each child is bestowed a tender kiss to their foreheads along with a softly spoken 'godt natt, ste drmer!'

With Hannah there to watch over the youngsters for a couple of hours, Shy takes her leave; a late-night run through the forest until she arrives at the place where she communes with the moon.

Every culture has its folklore and legends. One of Shy's favourite tales comes from the Irish: T�r na n�g ("Land of the Young"). It is an enchanted, ancient place. Listen closely, and mayhap you will be invited to that magical realm. Beware, though, magic always comes with a price!

T�r na n�g
