In two days we leave for Iceland. I downloaded an iTunes play list of popular Icelandic music in hopes of increasing my cultural competency.
With a greater sense of cultural appreciation I am hopeful that when I see a craggy escarpment I will appreciate its unique cragginess through the eyes of a guy who’s listened to an hour of Icelandic music.
What I did notice after my hour of listening is that the moody tunes range from folk to synth and lyrics hat included a lot of ice metaphors. I was delighted. “I never saw the black ice in your heart – until it was too late”
