Hours…too many to bother

Here’s a quick online excerpt of the myth:
“In the Norse mythology birds of prey are found in the ash tree Yggdrasil, whose branches spreads over all the world. In the top of the tree live a wise eagle. Between its eyes sits the hawk Vedrfolner. At the roots lie the snake Nidhug, gnawing at the roots. The squirrel Ratatosk run up and down the trunk, bringing gossip between the eagle and the snake. The ravens Húgin (Thought) and Munin (Memory) are servants and companions of Ódinn—the chief god of the Norse mythology—whose domain includes knowledge, wisdom and poetry. Their mission is to fly around the world and report what they see to their master.”
