Member since Nov-23-06 · Last seen Sep-24-19
I'm a single mom, green homesteader, veteran researcher and blogger living in rural eastern Iceland.

I'm quite experienced at starting with little to accomplish much, as has my family going back seven generations.

I sometimes joke about my family having been pioneers in farm stay tourism in Iceland. Only, we never charged anyone for anything, which might explain why we never became rich!

Particular interests: eating green stuff, watering plants, playing with dolls, napping.

Crazy Icelanders eat fermented, ammonia filled Greenland shark meat (aka <Hkarl>) that they've let sit for 5 months before consuming. The taste is so bad that they have to wash it down with a shot of <Brennivn> (schnapps flavored with caraway seeds) right away.

Live life to the fullest.
Enjoy what makes you happy.
Root for the underdog.
Cherish your time here.
Always say "thank you."
Tell the ones you love how much they mean to you. Never give up.
Let your words be kind.
Never go down without a fight.
Stand up for what you believe in.
Sleep when you're tired.
Make amends.

Apr-17-16  luftforlife: Hello there! I first came across your posts by way of the departed <Myschkin>, and I enjoy what you write. :)

I'm an American, and I'm not proficient in Icelandic, but I respect and value your language and your culture, about which I am gradually and happily learning. I'm also impressed by the long and rich history of chess in Iceland.

I recently helped <Tabanus> with his Reykjavik 1964 game-collection and tournament-page, and lately I've been researching Marcs Smith, the Canadian chess-champion from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries born in Iceland.

Just wanted to say hello, and to thank you for your contributions. I'd love to learn more about your favorite Icelandic players, if you'd care to share. Thanks for reading, and best wishes. :)

Premium Chessgames Member
  Aurora: Thank you very much for your kind words, <luftforlife>.

You and <Tabanus> did a great job there: Reykjavik (1964) It is most appreciated.

Apr-19-16  luftforlife: <Aurora>: Good to hear from you. You're welcome.

I am glad you enjoyed <Tab's> collection. I found several sources and edited the prose, but, as always, the vision and the industry were his. His presentation of the tournament makes for engrossing reading, and his collection is an authoritative, comprehensive, and much-needed addition to the body of work documenting Icelandic chess tournaments, which have proved so exciting and substantial through the years.

In doing my research on Marcs Smith, I came across an old Icelandic chess-poem. If you're interested, I'm happy to share it with you. :)

Thanks again for getting in touch. Best wishes.
