Norse Mythology...

I was reading about Norse mythology and check this:
They used to believe in something called:
"Ginnunggap" (gi-nun-gap)
Which is the "Yawning Void" that existed before the creation of everything (including the Gods).
It is what was there before anything was there at all.
"Pre-creation" if you will.
I love the wording of it---"Yawning Void"
That's beautiful.
Sit down for a minute and REALLY think about what it means.
A yawning void before all of creation.
What a perfect description.

I can't get over it...

hmm question is, why are you reading this?

This concept exists in many cultures, and the viking culture is no different than others,
1) I read about anything and everything (so, don't ask why).

2) I know that the concept exists.
I simply like the phrasing of it...
yes, question is how do you end up finding these things?
Oh don't ask, you don't want to open doors you can't close.

Very Poetic Post.
You have an outstanding good and well structured site. I enjoyed browsing through it here
