Heathen Wisdom

Posted on October 25, 2008 at 10:40am 0 Comments

Yesterday I got into dialog with a salesclerk at Toys R us after he saw the Ansuz rune around my neck (My Mjollnir went missing) or maybe it was the Valhalla University T-shirt, but it came to the question of What do I believe? Usually followed up with comments hoping that is not pillaging and plunder (although not yesterday). I may joke that P&P does have its place and time... but then the discussion ensues regarding the ways of Pre-Christian Germania with a reference to the… Continue

In honor of Erik the Red

Posted on October 8, 2008 at 12:06pm 0 Comments

Many attribute October 8th a day in honor of Erik the Red, credited with the fiest settlement in medieval Greenland. As many (including his son Leif Erikson, famed for his discovery of the New World 500 years before Columbus) in the world at that time were abandoning their roots in favor of Christianity, Erik the Red remained loyal to the Old Gods. Let all heathens raise their horn and honor the stubborness and steadfastness of Erik the Red who refused to betray his faith.

Ramble, ramble Part 4 or Not Being Nothing

Posted on October 4, 2008 at 10:30am 5 Comments

Recently I had a crisis of faith where I shied away from my heathen beliefs. That was mentioned earlier (in Odin and the Thorn) and now that I am back, I feel I need to do something to embrace heathenism and maybe to give back in some way and, well, not let the crisis happen again. My son is in college, which was a path that did not run to fruition for me in my youth (factors outside of my control back then) and I think about what might have been. I was thinking it would be nice to pursue some… Continue

Ramble, ramble Part 3 or Embracing Inner Masculinity

Posted on October 4, 2008 at 9:45am 4 Comments

My brother in law has complained that the mainstream world (at least in liberal Massachusetts) is guilty of emasculating the modern man. I won't get into this issue in this blog post about whether he's right or wrong and whether emasculation is right or wrong (not the same thing) but I can say that it was never a big issue for me personally. You see, I was raised by my Mom and Dad was never around. Some would say that this can create an environment where a male can grow up to be more… Continue

Ramble, ramble Part 2 or Invoking the Gods

Posted on October 4, 2008 at 8:51am 5 Comments

As a fairly new heathen, I am still guilty of mistakes, I suppose in how I invoke the Gods. I have put time aside in the morning and the evening to praise the Gods, but I have not always actively let them lead me during the day. Well, sometimes... but sometimes life gets me too busy and the Gods have slipped to the background. Not deliberately, but when I have foud myself stuck in a challenging situation figuring out some crazy computer problem or an even more difficult parenting situation,… Continue

Pre-Christian Germanic Heathenism. Actually is the belief, not an other belief. Also known as Asatru. Use of the runes (Elder Futhark).
Hobbies
Tossing the kubbs in Kubb. Practicing the I.33 Sword and Buckler sword technique. Very much into RPGs like Dungeons & Dragons, Might and Magic, and Dungeon Siege. Watching dark ages and medieval themed movies like The 13th Warrior, Beowulf and King Arthur. And let's not forget Ren Faires.

Well, I inadverantly implied that you were lying... Anyway, I'm very glad you didn't take offense... Perhaps your next quiz will go over better. You are, after all, the Quizmaster!!!! It's like being a lore master only more time consuming. lol

Looks like I ow you an apology. I wasn't quite sure what you were doing, but I, in effect, called you a liar. I know you not to be a liar, so I apologize. Too used to the Internet, I guess.

Not responding to anything you posted on my page. I just wanted to give you a heads up that the sci- fi channel will be showing a Beowulf movie tomarrow night at 9pm ESTThey'll probably fuck it up. If I could bring a tv in here or my machine into a room w/ a tv, I'd bother you until you got Skype so we coudl do a drinking game! LOL That'd be fun, a conference call Beowulf drinking game!
