2021 is going to be a strange year. I’ll be going through the rawest rituals of all; Child Birth, and my partner and I will be raising our first born child together, during a Pandemic.
Though the year looks like it’s going to be spent socially distancing, we will be making the most out of it by working further on our art, both in fashion and music. We are currently in the process of writing two new albums, one for Fedrespor and one for Voluspá – And I am researching how to open a web shop – … Somehow, I feel like this baby has given me a new kind of creative spark, and my intuition has also grown stronger. The strengthening of these abilities have come with great cost, but I feel like it will be worth it in the end. After all, everything worth doing in life is hard. I remind myself of that whenever I feel like giving up or talk myself down. I hope you all remind yourselves of that too.

This Yule was spent doing a small but important Winter Solstice ritual by ourselves in the forest. We’ve just bought and moved into our first and most of the time these days is spent right here, in our nest. I’m kind of an introverted person by nature, so that’s actually fine by me, though I must say that I miss my family terribly.

These are the first pregnancy photos we’ve taken, shot right outside our door, (unfortunately without snow). I think there will be one or two more shoots before the baby’s arrival to Midgard (hopefully with snow) (:

  1. Sol,
    Praying for a strong little Viking child and your continued personal and business success with your partner.
    Incidentally, and crediting you with my new writing pursuit, I have begun a rough draft of a period in Scandinavian history about the 12th century.
    Thank you again for your generosity and kindness in your sharing of your talents and time.
    Again, peace and prosperity to you and your family.
    I remain ever thankful,
    John Ismen (the Armenian)

  2. Congratulations! We truly need more good parents raising children aware of their world and their place in it – if we have learned nothing from this pandemic and this very unamerican being still deluded into thinking he is god, we are all A COMMUNITY – including all sentient beings – not just individuals but one of millions all pretty much the same – sort of makes a person realize our small but still very important part in helping to make the world a better place. Let us know all the details about the baby, and be well and grateful! Barb in the Gold Country

  3. You are as beautiful as always! Childbirth is indeed raw. I hope you have a great midwife to help you through. We can hope this pandemic won’t last forever, but having a lot of private time with just you, Varg and the baby will be one of the most rewarding things in life. Thanks for sharing this with us.

  4. This is Beautiful and Pure in nature. Thank you for sharing. You and yours are in our Viking hearts here in America. Must love and thought to you and your arts. I hope you get the website up and running.

  5. Gratulerer! When are you due! May the Gods bless you and your new child. You look radiant and beautiful, do hope you get your website up soon. You are in our Viking hearts, my Swedish husband Sven and I Norwegian, two Scandinavians in America.

  6. For the first time in ‘ages’ I visit your blog and you just posted a new story. Beautiful to see you are with child 🙂 Are you going to do a homebirth? (my youngest daughter is born in Norway, on a stormy november night in our bathtub, with the wisest, calmest jordmor I’ve ever med by my side 🙂
    Wish you all the best with the little one, and with the birth.

    • Thank you kindly. Your experience sounds like a very good one! However, I’m not going to do a homebirth myself. WAIT- Let me rephrase that -I’ll give birth in the mountains, feeding my placenta to the Wolves, as I howl at the moon whilst holding my child for the Gods to behold;-)

  7. you look beautiful!
    giving birth to a child is one of the three most impactful things in life: being born, giving birth and dying.
    I am also thinking of the three norns Skuld Verdandi and Urd.
    then you suddenly belong to the mothers and all mothers before you.
    i love your lifestyle and the wonderful things you make. you can be very proud of that!
    may Frigg guide you through your next phase of life.
    love, Floortje

  8. Sorry about the delay, sorry, but fantastic news for you and dad plus us as well, all this doom and gloom going about it is great to hear something good happening and you are still active making and doing things your baby will be so proud to have you both as parents as we feel proud to know you (sort of) ha.
