i will just
sit and breathe
listening for the
cry of the raven
in the myrk of the
night

“Uti-seta can also be seen as an encounter between someone who seeks knowledge (the pupil) and someone who has knowledge (the kennari or teacher). That meeting will take place at the point where the paths of teacher and pupil intersect: the crossroads.”

Geir T. Zoëga, Concise Dictionary of Old Icelandic
