Before cities and electric light, we had the true dark and stars for light. And all the monsters of the night.

Before the World Wide Web, there was the world tree, connecting the 9 realms, and our ancestors living in the realm of Midgard spoke daily with spirits, bartered with elves, and avoided the trails where trolls where known to tread.

Through the rational lens of the present day, we call them fairytales. They simply called them Huldufolk- the hidden people.

Could encounters with the unexplained many experience today simply be glimpses of this other realm, our mysterious hidden neighbors from times long past, peaking through occasionally into our noisy modern world, when there’s a quiet moment, or a creak of the closet door, just to remind us, they’re still there. watching. Unseen in the dark.
