Plans: trip to graves, errands with Audie
Greetings to you Mano/Manni, silver messenger on high, as you fly silently on your way reflect into our souls the glory of the High Ones that we might aspire to the realms of the gods. Bathe our
world in soft brightness, and whisper to our souls of joyous realms beyond our knowing. Mano/Manni let us see the goodness within us and without us, all the nights and days of our lives. MANO/MANNI, HAIL!!

The trip to the graves at Old Mission was a bit touchy. The wind is just
HOWLING from the south and made everything unstable. No further comment…
Audie feels that everyone and everything is being pissy towards her…can’t
explain it…nothing else to do with it; I’m just going to let it be.
I had a good time making the extended rounds to out-of-town graves; back into
old stomping grounds. At Alexanderwohl Cemetery I left a small spray at my
sister’s and stopped to honor the Grandparents on the Reimer’s side. While
there I encountered my Uncle Marvin (if he is indeed an Uncle of some kind).
He’s the husband of my recently deceased Aunt Linda (if she is indeed an Aunt of
some kind). I waited until he was available and approached him, asking him if
he remembered me. Of course, he did not. I had to explain to him I was Ann’s
son, and then the light went on. After we parted I hung around just for a bit
and saw him heading down where my eldest sister was buried. He said he was
certain he helped dig her grave; after all, that’s how family did it back then.
It was good to visit with him, probably for the last time.
On up to Lehigh Cemetery I paid honor to my Grandma and Grandpa Schmidt.
Visiting these graves have become so very important to me.
My WONDERFUL niece called to invite us over for a quick bbq. Audie didn’t
want to go as she felt as though she had some baking to get done. Nonetheless,
I went and had aheluva time…
…but I came home to THIS? WTF? ARGH!!!!!!!! I’ve done nothing deserving of
this kind of treatment.
PM Prayer: Wuldar/Ullr:
Wuldar/Ullr, god of ski and bow, you glide through the snow-clad forests bringing death to game and life to your people. Remind us that life feeds on life, and that the beauty of the prey is formed generation after generation by the culling ferocity of the predator. Let
your Yew-bow be the great World-Yew under another guise, so that through the spirit of the hunter, we may climb its branched to ever higher levels of awareness. HAIL WULDAR/ULLR!!
