There is so much that I often think that I might want to write about, but then again, things have been so strange, sometimes I think that it would be best to keep certain aspects of what has been happening to myself.
So, in its place, things such as this happen, and it makes a good filler for something else:
The white candle on my Loki altar had a thick clump in its wick this morning.
It was shaped like the Elder Futhark rune, Algiz (a Y intersected by a third stave):
….or perhaps a figure with its arms raised upright.
When I lit the candle, the wick flamed up very high, and the the three prongs of the wick were striated with a swirling orange glow, as the flame sputtered and danced about.
As I watched it burn, I meditated on the various interpretations of Algiz (or Elhaz)
“Elk-sedge” – (Z, or -R) – Protection, Shield. Wards, or guardians.
-Connection with higher self, or connection to gods; an awakening.
– Can be used to channel energies appropriately, or to protect or to hold a position that has been won or earned.
Then I blew out the candle, and the wick slowly shrank and curled downward a bit, as if the wick was a figure with arms lowered
…or perhaps, a person holding arms outward, as if to embrace another.
Or…maybe I am just overthinking, hmmm?
