NOTE: I have to imagine that Gebo is still in effect from yesterday. Audie is in a REALLY good mood this morning. Now THERE is a gift worth waking up to greet me!
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
Wunjo (U): Joy, pasture, joy attained with the fulfillment of a wish, the strong Clanic relationship, social contacts, fellowship, happiness, optimism, realization of true will, social and domestic harmony, good cheer, new social relationships, Fridu/Frith; within a secure setting, the good/bright side of Wodan/Odin.
Wunjo (R): Sadness, disruption in the Clanic relationship, questionable social contacts, loser, miserable, loneliness, shunning, weakened family ties, social and domestic disharmony, the inability to attain a wish, strife, alienation, failed social relationships, Fridu/Frith is challenged, the shadow side of Wodan/Odin.
Outcome: Work went well. I was informed today that my challenge against going to 2nd shift didn’t fly. I knew it wouldn’t. I just could not go down without a fight. I could let this upset me. It’s sad that I am going on a different shit than the rest of my Kindred, but I am not going to be so foolish as to make a big deal out of this.
Aldo at work, I was asked to go to First Aid for a hearing test. I just had a hearing test a couple months ago when I was recalled so I didn’t have to take one. While there I asked a (presumed) doctor about my night cramps (which by the way have subsided a bit but still continue). His answer was almost a carbon copy of the answer I received at the Minor Emergency Center the other day. However, what he added was to get a sports drink like Gatorade because they are loaded with electrolytes that might need to be balanced out. I’d be pretty damned happy id this does the trick.
After work, a trip to the grocery store for a sports drink and bananas; anticipating good things!
Finished the 13th Warrior (for the 98th time)
After a bit of mead we’re getting on each other’s last nerve…sad…quite a change from this morning.
PM Prayer: Paltar/Baldr
Blameless Paltar/Baldr, shining god, let your goodness and your reconciliation smooth our paths on Earth. When our days here are over, light up death’s darkness with the promise of rebirth. Help is to avoid evil, and seek the good. Inspired by you, we will keep our reputations spotless that our lives be proclaimed a victory of the Spirit, and out leaving this life a tragedy. PALTAR/BALDR HAIL!
