Björk the skrímsli was formed in the shadows from the flickering light of an oil lamp in a turf house in Borgarfjordur. Outside, under starry skies, the wind was rustling through the crooked branches of birch trees.
Björk adored a little boy who lived in the house. He had huge eyes and the sweetest smile. In the summer he took the sheep to the mountains and watched over them night after night dreaming of faraway places. Björk used to whisper to him when he was sleeping: “do not give up on your dreams”.
Björk gives hope to those around her and she makes dreams come true. She is impulsive, courageous and imaginative. She is a skrímsli of wishes and dreams.
