Plans: VA, work 2nd shift
Rune god! Wolf God! Raven god! WODAN/ODIN!! We call out to you, not as slaves 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!!!

Holy Runes send my way
Advice on how to spend the day
AM Rune: Two Runes
backbone, need to have backbone to get through, endurance, difficulty, “Shit happens, get over it!“, temporary cosmic consciousness, inner stability over external circumstances, the Shamanic link of experiences between the Worlds.
the Futhark, the number 12, cycles, a turning point, cause and effect, the Rune of return, two halves of a cyclic whole, harmony-in-movement-in-balance, improvement, expansion, growth, progress, patience, the result of a previous action, reward for the right (or wrong) action.
Outcome: It certainly didn’t take long for both of Runes to show up. At the
VA I visited with a physical therapist about core exercises related to my
umbilical surgeries. She ran me thru a few she had picked out. My physical
weakness came to the fore. It was damned difficult to do her basic core
routine. That certainly is my harvest for getting old, working too hard/too
long and ignoring the exercising I know I need to be doing. At least now I’m
armed with a few core exercises I can do at home.
At work they told us the lay-offs that were supposed to start later this week
has a month’s reprieve. Looking up the word “reprieve” with the thesaurus on
the computer and I get words like “stay of execution, pardon…” I have to have
the “inner stability over external circumstances”. It’s just damned cruel to
have that fear of lay-off looming overhead only to have that stay of execution,
AND have the Union wanting us to care about this upcoming contract. I guess
we’re just pawns for their pleasure; however I won’t play into either of them by
caring what they do think. I don’t care what the company does because I am not
going to worry about getting laid-off; when it happens it happens. Much less to
I care about the Union and these contract negotiations because there is no
saving our jobs in Plant 1 (that‘s not being pessimistic that‘s being realistic since I
know our jobs are in Mexico). I shall remain patient.
PM Prayer: Eger und Rahana/Aegir and Ran:
Eger und Rahana/Aegir and Ran, keeper of the deep hall at ocean’s bottom,
host to the drowned and the sea lost. Your dwelling might be thought sad and
gloomy, but you are known to be kind and hospitable ale givers. In your goodness
then, cheer us when waves of misfortune pound our life’s fragile boats to the
bottom. For even at the bottom, there is warmth, cheer and hope. Be our
assurance and our inspiration to strive on despite the swells and swirls of
fate. HAIL AEGIR and RAN/EGER UND RHANA!!
PM Rune: none
