All Beliefs are Welcome Here!
No , that was not something we "normally" would do...
However , there was a man...can't think of his name ,
but it was on one of the sites I have been on...
Who formed trees into very particular shapes...
No , we just bent small supple branches , or twigs ,
or even broke them , without pulling them apart...
Just enough to form a rune , or shape desired...;)
Regarding some of the bit of discord here, I’m open to all ideas.
The more input the better.
Agreed...I am open to all ideas as information to add to the
whole...we all have valuable info , no need to argue...
I would like to hear , if these are Perthro , and Algiz ,
what would they mean to others ?
I know some from my reading and studies...
Yet that would add to your knowledge base , HereNow...;)
Ok, I’m a dog digging for a bone.
This week I found a signature - actually not a signature, but a Native American Woman’s “mark” - on a deed from the early 1600s.
It looks kind of like a combination of symbols A and B above. She was signing away land for cheap, mostly because all of her people had died from the diseases the Europeans brought here to Massachusetts at that time.
Here is her mark. I’ve rotated the angle to match the symbols above.
Then the next thing, I found the same damn mark in documents from an archeological survey in the 1930s.
These marks were carved on a rock near the area I’m researching.
So, with the hurricane and politics and the other bs on PS, I’m going to slip this in:
This woman and her family are talking to me. Through dreams, journeys, signs in the woods – they are leaving me “notes” and keeping me on the trail of whatever research I’m here to do. They are showing me something and I’m doing my best to listen and share.
Here’s the rock, probably chipped at the time the whites were “Christianizing” the Original People living here, using the fact that up to 90% died from the plague as “proof” that the white’s god was best.
Your idea of Perthro does not...does not mean
that is the only way it is...prove it...;)
