A Beat Day at Big Rock - Stora Klopp

Here And To That At Stora-Klopp

More than a thousand Winters ago, a plank cast to the sea led
to Reykjanes.

A land of Fire and Ice where planet purge meets space sky.

A Place in Point where humanity was compelled to recognize the undeconstructables



the nothingness outside of the word.

And here in this land where the thing came to grapple with the
weird so long ago, his-story and her-story comes to task once
again, to effervesce, percolate, culminate in postulate
ponderance engae et l'éphémère.

Whether be saga or sutra, edda or epistle

let the skalds skat and swing

the bards bawl beatific

dispelling the nothingness outside of the word.

For this gathering does great honor to where it all comes from
and to be, opening the door to what is yet disclosed.

May the Spirit and Sense of Hávamál be with you all,

Man and Woman,

Native and Visitor.

Jafnan er hálfsögð saga, ef einn segir

A Beat Day at Big Rock - Stora Klopp - Spring tumbles into start of Summer. Beltane brings Poets, Writers and Musicians from around the World to Stora-Klopp (Big Rock) in Iceland on May 3rd for a collective celebration of the Spoken Word and Song hosted by internationally renown Icelandic novelist Olafur Gunnarsson at his farm outside Reykjavik.

Joining Gunnarsson will be Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson, Einar Karason, Sjón, Jonsi, Michael Dean Odin Pollock, Birgitta Jonsdottir, Eileen Myles, Ron Whitehead, Scott Mertz and others yet to be defined as of this posting.

We here at Insomniacathon On-Line! salute all that will be celebrating the seminal art of recount and ribald in this new millennium honoring the forebears who forged the fundamentals of recountable history.

Let the stories be told and the songs be sung lest we leave the moment fade to the mists of the forgotten, fleeting into the nothingness outside of the word.
