The tale of a battle scarred Viking

My Helmet has been lost

My Sword is dull

My Battle Axe is broken and rusty

My Shield is faded and cracked

My Ship is weathered, battered and taking on water

It is time to seek the refuge of a calmer harbor, out of the rough sea…

In order to rebuild and fight another day

I scribbled this on a scrap of paper four years ago, things are better, but not much.
