Focus part II;>.....

Usually, when I get an Impulse to do Runework, I grab a bunch of books from my personal stash of "Woo" Lit. This time, I've decided to work with my workbooks; Meditations, Classes, workshops that I've attended OR run, etc.
The "Good Thing" about hardcopy materials is that an electrical storm can't erase a couple of decades worth of work(well, unless the house gets hit and it burns;>). The Not So is that unlike a Word file, you can't C&P ALL the work on a single Runestave, in Temporal Order. You have to "dig" and almost 3 decades can build up a fair "pile";>! The "gem" however could be finding material that might be Useful at present or near future.
My BIGGEST problem is that until the "teens" I dated everything in code:
Yrs from Birth
Date till
I got in the habit back in my Wiccan days but at least lost the Theban;>!
Other than that(and dealing with my handwriting;>), it's not bad and it'll certainly be Interesting to see what I got out of each Rune over the decades....

Focus......

So, while the poop was hitting the vents Tuesday, as my want I did a Runecasting. Not all that Useful 'cause it basically said, "The Shit has hit the Fan". Duh;>! For the rest of the day Runes kept popping up in my thoughts. Not surprisingly, during my shower I got what I call a "Voiceover" where I Hear _____(fill in the Blank; Subconscious, Higher Self, Voice of Deity, etc). It said, "Time to Focus".
Since the late 90's I've been using both the Elder Futhark and Anglo-Frisian Futhorc(though Honestly more the EF). I've done a lot of Work with both over the passing decades. I've filled a few notebooks with stuff. Never had any interest in the Younger Futhark and the Armanen? Don't think So.
I don't know how much time I have left on Midgard(at least a decade, maybe more) so I think that was a push to get more serious. So my AF Runestaves have been put away and my EF stavesets are out where they can be used. My favs are a Copper EF and an EF carved into Snowflake Obsidian. My more traditional sets are those risted into Yew, Holly and Antler though I'm more "tuned" to my Copper set.

Grrrrrrrrrrrhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!

So....my meds were SUPPOSED to ship yesterday and be here TODAY. That includes my Insulin. Last dose was YESTERDAY. Called the company(since I ALWAYS get a text from shipping to look for them on delivery day and didn't get one yesterday) and they said Insurance wouldn't let them ship something until today(and they weren't going to pay for 2 shippings).
No Insulin today and IF I got my MD to do an emergency, that would invalidate this month's through the company and I'd get stuck paying full price.
What I can do is DIET today and dbl my oral antidiabetics until it gets here tomorrow AM. Won't die but will probably feel like crap tonight....

I rented this flick 'cause I thought it would be a fun Bad movie. Instead, it was a fun Good movie;>!
Set in the period pre-Victorian(Regency?), England is recovering from a Zombie plague imported from the colonies. The area about London is moated and the city is walled. The Undead have been beaten back enough that the gentry have returned to their newly fortified estates...
Just fun. And I discovered something about myself.....that I find men's Regency fashion damned HOT if in Black Leather;>.
Cheers,
Pat

Vacation?......

So....we all went to my brother's time-share in Orlando and got back Thursday. Just missed the singer being murdered and got home before the massacre.
Did have a good time there. The city is more than Disney World. I think the bit we're going to remember the most fondly was a Butterfly Farm that taught you ho to hand feed them(a finger dabbed with good old original Gatorade and placed next to their feet. Once they taste it, they hop on and slurp it up;>. The look on Chuck's face;>........

Last Presidential Election.....

Not that I know that I'll be dead before the next one;>! All my life I've had to choose, as 'South Park' put so eloquently "between a Douche and a Turd". Once I thought maybe but as soon as he got intop office he threw "Me and Mine" "Under the bus" for folks that a few yrs later would work to Impeach him. Today, it's a choice between wading waist deep in sewage and chin deep. I admit, waist is better, but not good.
I'll still vote State and local where my vote means something but not where all that you'll get is another bit of your Soul tarnished....

Pilot Review: 'Preacher'

To Preface; I never read the comic(never HEARD of it;>!)and had no interest. Commercial promos didn't do a thing. But on the day of premiere, an HR before showtime I decided to DVR it and the one time 'Talking Preacher'. I watched 'TP' and was sufficiently intrigued to watch the actual show. Me Likey;>!
Set in basically the Texas version of Twin Peaks, it's about a bad boy who tries to redeem himself by filling the shoes of his Preacher father. Add in an Entity(Angel? Demon? AI?) that is perfectly balanced between Good and Evil(in the 1st 15" of the show it Possesses a Christian Pastor, a Satanic Priest and Tom Cruise...all who were not up to it's standards and explode;>), a Scottish Vampire and a Bad-ass Badgirl(who builds a bazooka out of cans, chains and Moonshine to take out a helicopter)and you have an interesting central cast.
Have no idea where it'll go but it's now on my "record" list....

Cincinnati....

The protests IF the zoo had "tranked" the gorilla and the kid got hurt(or killed) would be soooo much greater than the one's now....so I Understand their Logic.
However, IMO there are almost 9 million Humans.Quite a few less Gorillas in general and even fewer that subspecies. Wouldn't have bothered me a bit if the kid had been killed. At least then one less Eejit would BREED.

L:ong Weekend.....

MAJOR family weekend. Dinner at Dad's Saturday and all Sunday. Drove over to Pensacola NAS to Barancass to see Mom's grave. Beautiful day.
And so far no one on one of my groups has dragged out the, "Every Person is a Hero" drivel. 'Course, I've heavily edited my subscriptions due to groups with a high Stoopid percentage so;>....

Politics....

I try to avoid it because it's never done anything positive to Me and Mine but the stupidity of the Clintonistas is pissing me off. We were going to vote for you anyway but stop being such butts. We're used to holding our noses and voting for the "lesser evil". STOP trying to become the "greater". And yes, I voted for your husband, though the 2nd time it was as the "lesser e". I was THERE. I lived in DC when your husband threw the GLBT community "under the bust" for "Bipartisanship". DADT? DOMA?
I don't forget and Clinton's done NOTHING that'll make me forgive what they did to us for folks that stabbed them in the back anyway. But I'll still vote for her if it's a choice between Her and the Ultimate Combover. Just because I'm still Angery doesn't make ME stupid but not all of usare as pragmatic so STOP THE SHITTY BEHAVIOR...

Pat
