Reblogging this from last year because I can’t *not* reblog it whenever I come across it. Enjoy.
You know you’re a Heathen if, when I say, “Remember that great scene from The 13th Warrior? You know, “Lo! There do I….”, you can finish the entire quote automatically 🙂 For you, I give you this. Happy belated Winternights.
Lo, there do I see my father
Lo, there do I see my mother
and my sisters and my brothers
Lo, there do I see the line of my people
back to the beginning.
Lo, they do call to me
They bid me take my place among them.
In the halls of Valhalla,
where the brave shall live forever.
