Writing Between the Worlds: Stepping into the Wyrd Fall 2021
"Thence come the maidens
mighty in wisdom,
Three from the dwelling
down 'neath the tree;
Urth is one named,
Verthandi the next, —
On the wood they scored, —
and Skuld the third.
Laws they made there,
and life allotted
To the sons of men, and set their fates"
-- Völuspá 20, translated by Henry Adams Bellow and accessed online at
We reside in the wyrd: fate, destiny. Since our first breath.
Were we always meant to come here? How did our choices bring us to this place? To this time? To this liminal space?
With the Norns, the Wyrd Sisters, we come to sit at the base of the World Tree, Yggdrasil, to nourish the roots with the waters of the well of Urd. To sit and remember, to move through time such as it is, such as it was, such as it is becoming.
In these 5 meetings, we will write between the worlds and sit with the Norns. Those who weave and measure and cut, and contemplate life, how it interconnects, how it pulls on other threads, and how it forms community.
This is a creative space, time between time, where we will go deep into trance, write from the space of uncovering and knowing, share and be witnessed. Perhaps to reveal, perhaps to heal.
No homework. No feedback. Just writing between the worlds. For what happens between the worlds changes and impacts all the worlds.
