bergtagen (swedish)

thedeerandtheoak:

1. be spirited away
2. be spirited away into the mountains

In swedish folklore, a person who is “bergtagen” have been lured (or taken) by trolls into their lair in the mountains. If a person who’s been “bergtagen” would somehow return from the trolls lair (by simply being released by the trolls or to have escaped), they where described to have gone insane.

erikkwakkel: Page in bloom A herbary is a book on plants. I always thought that such books contained drawings or paintings of plants. Until I came across this object on the website of the Bodleian Library in Oxford. Constructed around 1595, it is likely the oldest of its kind from England. The book is filled with about 300 real plants, which were gathered in Italy by a monk called Gregorio Reggio. Short descriptions accompany the specimens, which look like they were picked yesterday. Every page forever in bloom. Pic: Bodleian Library. More on herbaries with real plants here.

Emptiness which is conceptually liable to be mistaken for sheer nothingness is in fact the reservoir of infinite possibilities.
