Skáldskapr: The path of The Clan

The value of family has weakened throughout the generations, leaving a large gap in our modern-day understanding of what it means to be a family, or our ancestors may have referred to it as a clan. This idea stems from different people being joined, either: by blood, or by purpose, to create a better immediate community. Throughout the Norse legends, there are many clans that rally to the cause to support our ancestors in their quest for their future. Our ancestors, who lived those generations ago were not much different than we are today, as far as their need for family bonds.

Skáldskapr: The path of understanding.

A common misconception is that there occurs a time in ones life where everything will make sense. Where the trials and tribulations that we have undertaken will all make sense. I’m here to say that time never comes. Even today, many people struggle to understand the reason behind the recent plague that infected the earth. Today I hope to impart on you some wisdom I’ve learned throughout my many years of life. Hopefully, I can pass it along to you in a way that makes sense for you, and you can incorporate it into your collective wisdom.

Skáldskapr: The silence of power.

Taking a cue from my ancestors on this one, at the risk of sounding like an internet meme. What really is the true power of a boy or man in modern America? Let’s talk about that, what does it mean? What does it mean in today’s society to be a direct descendent of a Viking warrior?
