It has been a long day, and a longer night for Shy.

A good place to do some serious thinking is at the Rolig Strand. It is where she now strolls barefoot along the soft sand ... where the ocean gently breaks upon the shore. Shy pauses to watch the ebb and flow of water as it washes over her feet, then retreats. A few minutes later she continues her journey down the beach to the pier.

Stepping up onto the long dock the female Viking casually makes her way toward the opposite end, stopping two planks away from the edge. It is here that she looks out over the moonlit sea. A song surfaces and she begins to sing.

Before long a second voice joins hers in beautiful harmony. She immediately recognizes the young lads voice; it is Pehr's. Her deceased son.



Drømme En Drøm


When the night is still
And the sea is calm
Lonely shadow, you fall upon me

Lay by my side
Fear not tonight
Lonely shadow, you’ll find a new light

Dream a dream
And see through angels eyes
A place where we can fly away

Ride with me upon a shining star,
Above the moonlit sky
We will find Elysium

Hear the nightingale
Sing a lullaby
Lonely shadow, you’ll find a new light

Dawn will be kind,
All will be bright,
Lonely shadow, rise from the darkness

Dream a dream
And see through angels eyes
A place where we can fly away

Ride with me upon a shining star
Above the moonlit sky once more

Dream a dream
And see through angels eyes
A place where we can fly away

Dream a dream
And see through angels eyes
A place where we can fly away

Elysium

Instrumentals can be found throughout Shy's expanding LP record collection, slotted in here and there on the bookcase shelf where she keeps the albums in alphabetical order. Nearly two weeks have passed since she and Victor danced to the songs on the record she now holds in her hand. That time adage sure seems to be true.

Once again she places the large vinyl disc on the phonograph. When the first beautiful melody begins she smiles, and soon she is dancing with an invisible partner.


Kjærlighet Er Blå

Noe Tåpelig

As of late Shy has been experiencing a plethora of dreams; many more than usual, or what she considers to be an above average number for herself during slumber. Some of those visions bring her joy, others sorrow. Some leave her with a feeling of foreboding, while others give her a sense of relief.

Then there is that one recurring dream (perhaps it should be considered a nightmare) that causes despair. She remembers it with surprising clarity during her waking hours. But even when things appear hopeless, she is not about to give up. Because, that goes against her ways.

And just today, while visiting the music store, she came across a long-playing record album by a man named Frank Sinatra. One of the song titles intrigued her, and so she purchased the LP. The song is exactly how she thinks and feels.


Umulig Drømmen

It has been raining quite a bit, so this is the perfect time to play her most recent purchase from the music store. The beat always makes her want to dance, and she usually does it without constraint. Trøst and Sjanse seem to enjoy watching her, too, as she moves rhythmically to the tune.

Jeg Elsker et Regnfull Natt

Just as Shy arrives at her pub and is about to enter, a special delivery messenger calls out to her from a little ways down the cobblestone road. It seems the female Viking is the recipient of a package. An unexpected one.

After scrawling her name on the piece of paper the messenger insists she must sign, bids him a courteous farewell, then takes the flat, square package inside her drinking establishment. A nod and smile to the bartender/bouncer, Gunnar, before heading upstairs to her office. It is there that she removes the brown paper wrapping to find a (45 rpm) record. No note inside the cardboard container indicating who the record is from, nor a return address.

Well now, she cannot listen to it until after she returns to her log home. Surely, it will be the first thing she does. Guaranteed.



You'll Be In My Heart

Ívarr passed the first two tests without much difficulty. However, he is finding the third trial much harder to complete. Exhaustion is starting to take its toll. He needs to rest for a bit and asks Shy if it is all right to take a breather even though he has not yet finished the ordeal.

According to the ways the eighteen year old is allowed to have three respites. Shy is not surprised his first request came at this particular juncture. She watches Ívarr intently while he plops himself down onto the white sand, then rolls over onto his back. Her gaze drifts to the young mans father, George. She can see beyond the large Norseman's stoic facade, and knows he is concerned. He has every right to be.

Just as she is going to say something comforting to Olafsson Ívarr makes a quiet inquiry to her crew. Or mayhap he is asking the twinkling stars in the midnight sky?


"Who is she, really?"

A hush falls over the gathering, and the Wild turn their eyes upon Shylah.

Oh! She will answer, but it probably will not help. A dimpled smile forms as she gestures to Nils to begin playing the hardingfele. She knows the others will join in.

Shy sings about The Sky and The Dawn and The Sun.

When the music abruptly ends Shy softly says, "Hvem am I? I am the Midnattsol. The Midnight Sun."

Should Ívarr complete all of the required tests to her satisfaction he definitely will receive another answer to that inquiry.

Silently, George kneels next to his second-born son; the boy is spent and sprawled out on the white sand trying to catch his breath after that last grueling test. The ordeal has finally ended, and Olafsson should be very proud of Ívarr.

The Leder of the Norsk Dronning is pleased and satisfied with the outcome of the nights trial. There was only one instance when it had been touch-and-go for the lad. But, the eighteen year old did not give up. He gathered his inner strength and fought through the tough situation. Ívarr is surely fit to be one of her crew should he still want the position.

Shy asks Stigardrsson one more time if it remains his desire.


"It does!"

A wolfish smile forms upon her lips as the Wild immediately begin cheering. Some of her crew pound on their bodhráns while others stomp their feet. Shy simply nods at Ívarr, then indicates he should join the others gathered 'round the campfire.

Even though Ívarr is quite weary, he continues to prove himself to her and the others by refusing his father's help in standing up. Shy sees the determination and passion in his eyes. It is a good thing that he has such moxie.

"You have earned the right to know hvem I am."

Now Shy is known by many names in her homeland. However, there is one above all others that means much more than the rest. It is this name that she softly speaks. . .

"I am the Vinter Ulv."

Ívarr's eyes are wide and his mouth is agape. An elbow jab to the ribs (from George) takes care of that little faux pas, and brings the eighteen year old to his senses. On bended knee Stigardrsson bows his head, displaying respect and submission to Shy.

"Your Far has spoken at length to you about the ways. Na 'tis time you learn hva has been kept hidden fra you. Rise Ívarr, and prepare to take your place amongst your brødrene."


Ulv Blod

Undergoing the ordeal has been compared to being as 'slow as mosasses in January'. Nevertheless it has its rewards. Exceptional ones.

The induction is now complete. Dawn is soon approaching. The time has arrived for her newest crew member to take his leave with the others, and so Shy ends the ceremony.

"Go na, Ívarr. Join the Wild in celebration."

She wonders if Stigardsson will fall asleep halfway through drinking a tankard of mead, simply out of sheer exhaustion. Perhaps he will not even imbibe that much before his head meets the table.

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 Ívarr, 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.

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?"

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 måneskinn. Den kalde snøstorm. Han vet meldingen har å ankomme. Den kongerike skal brenne ned til grunnen.

"Hekser og demoner har kommet til å nekte, det skjønnheten og fred i vårt hjemland. Vi vet at meldingen har å 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, søte drømer!'

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: Tir na nog ("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!
