Daily Dose

From Anecdotes of Destiny, by Isak Dinesen


"But it was not barren; it was the mighty night of northern lights, and in it things lived: heavy, shaggy bears padded and puffed, wolves whirled in long trails through the blizzard over the plains, ancient Finns, who knew witchcraft, chuckled while selling fair winds to the seamen."

From Tempests, XIV, Old Folks and Old Tales
