MY VALKYRIE FRIEND
In Norse mythology, a Valkyrie is a female deity who chooses the most heroic of men who have died in battle and carries them off to Valhalla. Well, I’ve been in some battles, but I ain’t dead yet – no way, no how. The Valkrie plainly could see I'm ready and able for battles to come, so she didn’t even bother to take my pulse. Valhalla will have to wait.
My Valkyrie friend is Emilie Sperl from Petersburg, Alaska. Next time I have to confront someone who didn’t like one of my votes, I’ll take her with me. Emilie was in Juneau to promote the Norway Festival to be held mid-May in Petersburg.
