Note: I remember having a dream last night; it rarely happens so this is a big deal:
I went over to what was my (deceased) brother’s apartment (even though my brother was married and in his home with his wife up until the time of his death). His son, my nephew was sweeping/cleaning up. I asked, “Where’s Mike?” His son tells me, “He moved.” “To where?” I asked. His son just shrugged his shoulders, indicating he didn’t know. Frustrated, I went outside only to find horseshoe nails forced into the ground, with their tops sticking up enough to pester me walking across them as I was wearing flip-flops (which I normally never wear). Frustrated, I sat down amongst all those horseshoe nails, not remembering the pain any longer.
AM Prayer: Friday, we pray to the glorious siblings, Walburga Frouwa/Freyja and Ing Fro/Freyr, and lighting a gold candle (for Freyja’s tears and Freyr’s golden boar, Gullinbursti).
Walburga Frouwa/Freyja, who could not love you? Women as their own inner glory and highest attainment as the self-made woman, men for your beauty, passion and strength. Praise to you for the gift of life, and for the love that makes life worth living. Remind us always that it is the strong who love the best and the most, and that only the mighty can truly be gentle. Fill our lives with passion and lust that we may live our lives to the fullest. HAIL WALBURGA FROUWA/FREYJA!!
Ing Fro/Freyr, you are the god of “Ar”, the good harvest and prosperity: you are indeed the lusty enlarger of life. When the day to day wears us down, remind us of pleasures and joys. Help us recall the wonderful excesses that brought our lives into being and which sustain the human spirit during good times and bad. Without you, there would be no life and certainly little delight. Thank you, Ing Fro/Freyr, for the rushing life spirit and the eternal play of passions that make our lives fruitful. ING FRO/FREYR, HAIL!!
Born of fire, born of ice
Life is lived at such a price
Holy Runes send my way
Advice on how to spend the day
Outcome: Audie woke up feeling a bit nauseas for no particular reason.
HIBERNATION TIME! Hopefully this is the last day of this extreme heat.
Audie back into bed most al afternoon
I just had to get out of here for a while; stopped by my tattoo artist’s shop to get him started on a working drawing for my back tattoo…shopped for Meeka’s canned food…Borders book store…cruised Town West Mall just for the heluvit…parked it at Dick’s Sporting Goods for a while to watch the tail end of the Munich/Madrid International Friendly
DAMN it’s still hot
How does anyone sleep this long?
Mostly it’s been a day by myself, and that’s okay because I need to realize that no matter what she does I want to be able to go anywhere and do anything. I hibernate in the summer, sure, but when it comes time to venture out I am not going to wait and see what she wants to do. I’ve lived by myself most all of my life and refuse to be held back by someone who all she wants to do is be home…alone. Now THAT equates to personal growth, doesn’t it?
PM Prayer: All you gods and goddesses bless and keep your Holy Folk. From the cold shadows of the glaciers to the colder shadows of space, always, we have been your people. Guide and guard your North folk as you did in ages past. Wodan/Odin, give wisdom and craft to wits shaped by ice and fire that our foes be foxed. Donar/Thor, give us strength and the will to use it. Ing Fro/Freyr and Frouwa/Freyja, give full wombs so that bodies will be found for the souls of heroes. Let your Northern Folk grow in number and in power, so that our kind may live, love, survive and thrive, not just today, not for a millennium, but for ever and ever!
PM Rune: none
