Plans: we’ll see…
Rune god! Wolf God! Raven god! WODAN/ODIN!! We call out to you, not as a slave or on bended knee, but on our feet and opened-armed as befits your offspring. Watch us as we struggle, but the fight and fame must both be ours! Grant us that victory which we win by OUR might and mane! If we live well, Wodan/Odin, grant us access to one of the Great Halls where we may feast, drink and be merry with those who have gone before us until the time comes to live or fight once more. WODAN/ODIN, HAIL!!!
Frija/Frigga, teach us to be patient but not passive; wise but not haughty in our wisdom; far seeing yet not blind to that which is before us. May we nurture life, increase life, and live our own lives more fully. Through you we give honor to our human mothers. Through you we see all the beauty that surrounds us as well. FRIJA/FRIGGA, 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
We had an abbreviated work force today: only 27% of employees showed up. It seems there were some who wanted a second snow day.
The Ground Hog didn’t see his shadow…spring is near at hand!
Audie is deteriorating. It’s obvious in her facial expression, her speech and her thought patterns. she doesn’t have access to the same meds to keep her level as when she could pay for her own insurance. This whole disability thing she's trying to get done is taking a bit longer than expected. Hopefully when that comes thru medicade will take care of things. I can’t put her on my insurance because we aren’t married; besides, if I did she would just be in the same boat playing the same game when I get laid-off again. Her best bet is to do the best she can until then; at the same time, things are noticeably going down-hill. It seems we could lose all the gains that have been made in her health care. Well, at least I got the number for an organization that can get her rides to her medical appointments.
Cautiously going to sleep…
PM Prayer: The Norns:
The Norns all three are present at birth
To weave our Fate from merriment to dearth.
Urd, Verdandi and Skuld, the dark queens renowned;
Glorious ladies ‘neath the Tree, work your mysteries in us now.
That which “was” we clearly see.
That which “is” formed now in our deeds.
That which “will be”, will yet be; but cannot see.
We celebrate the Norns, the Ladies Three, for eternity.
PM Rune: none
