I woke up this morning thinking of Iceland (a place I've never been, in a world full of places I've never been). I was wondering, "Are there any oceans in Iceland? Or...just lakes?" and hazily realizing I had been picturing it, just then, as a tiny planet--not an island country (which is, duh, sitting in the middle of the ocean. At the junction of two oceans, in fact).

And then walking around Mackworth this morning, I admired the gold seaweed carpets on the little beaches, and imagined that's what Iceland (the planet) looks like.

Flora and fauna of Iceland

The specialized atmosphere makes it possible to swim in the sky.

The friendly Icelandic sea swallows will land on your shoulders and arms if you stand very still.
