Description

Thor, the god of thunder, aims to kill the Midgard Serpent, which according to prophecy will otherwise bring about the end of the world. He takes the giant Hymir with him on a fishing trip.
Thor baits his line with a bull’s head, and after a long, patient wait, he finally gets a bite. Slowly he pulls the Midgard Serpent nearer to the boat. But just as he raises his hammer to destroy the beast, Hymir sees what is approaching the boat, gets scared and cuts the fishing line, allowing the serpent to return to the depths.

Depictions of this tale exist from as early as the eighth century, and even modern people can relate to it. The threat today is another one, and we are the people in the boat. Each one of us needs to decide if we want to be Thor or Hymir, and act accordingly. Who do you want to be?
