From the violent beginning of Hagal’s transformation, and the desperation of NaudiR’s fire, Isa comes as the time to rest and collect oneself. The ice cools the fire which was needed to survive in the harsh conditions, and allows calmness to enter. This is where the bridge is at its widest, and possibilities are many. Rash action and complacency are not wise ways, for blindness will oft lead one astray.

“Ice is called broad bridge.
Blind must be led.”
-Danish rune poem

Though the calmness may be refreshing, it is not to last for long. The need to act comes soon, lest the ice close in and become the frozen tomb. Keep the fire burning enough to keep the ice at bay, for many stay too long. Keep in mind the need for thought, and allow the way to present itself; the fire too hot melts overmuch ice, and releases the flooding river to sweep one away again.

“Ice is river-bark,
wave’s roof,
trap of the doomed.”
-Icelandic rune poem

Ice is the friend when there is a need for rest and recollection, as with the settling in of winter’s frost which clears away that which must die for the next year’s fruitfulness. But kept too long, it traps the life which seeks to grow, and prevents the land’s prosperity.

Let the ice calm and create the river’s bridge, but let it not entomb.
