Odin Project: Day 20

November 20, 2012 Leave a comment

Gangleri sought Völvas’ ways | and to Folkvangr came,

seeking the wisdom of Gefn;

She pierced Him through | and taught Him well,

In woman’s dress He learned

 

Well-wrought the lessons | at Skjálf’s feet

By fire and distaff spun,

Prophecy and power | came to Grimnir’s call

Who learned Hörn’s ways

 

Sviðurr He left | Freya’s golden hall,

ranging wide in Ve and stride;

Doors closed were open | ways unseen shown bright,

No thing held from Odin’s path

Odin Project: Day 10

Seek under the Tree | hanging with taut rope

Yggr hangs, bleeding wisdom;

Seek in the Hall | seated in power

Alfaðir waits, far-seeing and grim

 

Seek on the Road | blue cloak wrapped tight

Gangleri wanders far, welcoming company;

Seek in the Wild | spear keen and gleaming

Wod preparing for battle

 

Seek on the Mountain | mouth open wide

Galdraföðer sings spell and enchantment;

Seek in the World | form ever-changing

Svipal walks and stalks

7 Interesting Facts About Myself

1.  I am a huge fan of anything by Hayao Miyazaki, but I am especially obsessed/a huge fan of Mononoke-hime, aka Princess Mononoke.

2.  On Career Day when I was 5, my teacher asked me what I wanted to be.  I told her I wanted to be a shaman.  She said she wasn’t sure I could be that, and asked me to choose something else, so I chose to be a police officer.  Irony.  ^_^

3.  I am a student going for my B.S. in Psychology, minor in Religious Studies.  I am looking at double-majoring in Anthropology.

4.  I used to be part of a nonprofit that helped teach kids in computer clubs about how to work with computers, how to animate movies in Flash, and develop skills to be computer-literate otherwise.

5.  I am a very new amateur wood-carver, pyrographer, and leatherworker.

6.  I hope someday to get land together to open up a public or semi-public temple or hof.  

7.  I am an amateur techno and meditative soundscape producer.
