Torsbo

It is like a crazy pearl hidden between everything pearly. The biggest, the most amazing, the spot, the place you just must see. But take some water with you and long pants. Take something for spirits still singing there, and ancient gods, those who wait, sleep…

or only…

watch you.

And come to Torsbo. The biggest, the most amazing place. Hidden between trees, with some water from the bogs…

Some could say it was not luck, but for me, I was lucky to come here, when it was raining. With no sun, just with wind.

Torsbo is not easy to find. There is an old farm and a parking lot but still, we were here alone.

IMG_1339

From a parking you will take a not so long walk, you will pass the graves, you will wait, you will have many expectations, and suddenly.

It will be here.

IMG_1344

Amazing.

IMG_1345

Breathtaking.

IMG_1350

Complicated.

IMG_1358

Rich.

IMG_1360

Some of them need some restorations.

IMG_1366

Some are still visible thanks to water.

IMG_1371

Of course everything is described.

IMG_1374

So no worries.

IMG_1376

You are safe.

IMG_1379

Or only amazed?

IMG_1382

Because those carvings are something more. Something longer, something really telling stories.

IMG_1384

First you look…

IMG_1385

… then you touch the rock – not the carving – and listen. And you are amazed by this greenery, by those trees, by this nature. By everything.

IMG_1387

And those colors.

IMG_1388

This is why coming here when it rains, is a great idea.

IMG_1391

But choose a good boots.

IMG_1396

And think… how could they love this place for so long? And create, describe, or just carv for fun?

IMG_1400

How could they lie here their parents and grandparents.

IMG_1402

Pray and believe.

IMG_1405

Think how much more is here. How much more to discover, but…

IMG_1430

… are we still Homo sapiens sapiens to get it? Are we?

IMG_1436

Look at them? They were here before us. Brave? Or just humans like we are? Scared sometimes, struggling, scared, full of hopes?

IMG_1444

Hunting?

IMG_1445

Discovering or… wait, where are the fish? I mean really?

IMG_1448

Or maybe that was only a book? You know, a chronicle, annals… just a story?

IMG_1453

About those who fought, and won, about those who lost?

IMG_1460

About hunters and animals.

About nature.

Because you are nothing without nature…

IMG_1472

And without waves.
