There are many stories about the hidden people in Iceland. No wonder, in this incredible landscape even I started to believe that there could be something like elves and goblins. By the way, Iceland got an Elf Officer, who negotiate with the hidden people before for example a street is going to be built. Since the Elf Officer there are fewer accidents and material damages (like for example bent buckets). You will find a lot of stories about the hidden people of Iceland in the www. Before I came to Iceland a friend told me to look out for faces and figures in rocks. So I went there rather open minded and with open eyes in this country and see what I found:
Can you see the lady in the Geyser? On her back, she's got little wings and she crosses her arms in front of her and...
... wush, away she is.
Goblins like to play and ran around in the green hills. When they see humans coming they hide in the rocks and stones.
I'm wondering, whether in this smooth stone sits a little goblin, too.
Could this be the entrance to the elves world, decorated with a rainbow?
At this place on a very lonely street we were not welcomed. Suddenly wind came up and steered up sand. It was awesome but we moved quickly on.
This goblin (whose head looks like one from a dog or bear) was playing with a little ball when we just turned up... so he quickly turned himself and the ball into stone.
Can you recognize this little gnome? He's making a kiss face into the air.
Stand still, humans in sight.
Even the water is full of hidden people. Look deep into the water and you will see the hair of the mermaid.
One of the story says that the hidden people are a result of Adam and Eva who did hide them from God when he was visiting them to see their kids. The hidden people were also kids from Adam and Eva but not cleaned and washed to be ready to meet god. So they were hidden away from God. Of course God couldn't be deceived and he said: "What is hidden from me shall always be hidden from people." Hmm, well, if this story really should be true, then those people weren't hidden very well. When one watches out carefully and has a closer look... one is able to see them.
Habt einen verwunschenschönen Sonntag und wenn Ihr mal wieder nach den Schlüsseln oder den Hausschuhen sucht, so wie ich, dann wisst Ihr nun, dass auch bei Euch ein kleiner Kobold das Unwesen treibt *lach*.
Have a mystic and beautiful Sunday and if you miss your keys or slippers (like I always do), then maybe the hidden people are playing games with you *LoL*.
Häbet Sorg / Take care
