April 8, 2010 – Aethel reversed


Aethel reversed

Aethel is the dipthong “oe”

Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from ragweedforge.com)

An estate is very dear to every man,
if he can enjoy there in his housewhatever is right and proper in constant prosperity

It was a little shocking to see the reversed rune of the rune of the week show up today. It seemed odd, but I guess even the most harmonious home will always have a little friction in it, at least to keep things interesting for those involved. After a moment of contemplation, I think it is speaking more to the cabin fever, of being in the home, secure and comfortable for too long. Eventually the desire for stimulation, interaction and variety push even the most established home body out in the open space. The discord at home might be brought about because, as a saying I have heard goes “Familiarity breeds contempt.” Stepping outside, at least to get away from others, as much as get away from yourself.
