Laguz reversed

Laguz is the letter L

Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from ragweedforge.com)

The ocean seems interminable to men,
if they venture on the rolling barkand the waves of the sea terrify themand the courser of the deep heed not its bridle

It seems contrary that a week of getting back into the flow of things, the next day would show that flow being fought or somehow missed. Rather, I think the answer lies in what today is. It is the Summer Solstice, the peak of the Solar year, where the longest period of daylight is present. After today, the days start to turn subtley shorter, and the outward flow that was begun with the Winter Solstice, now turns back. In and Out, Up and Down, Expansion and Contraction, the cycles go on and on, a circle in space, a spiral in time.

Of course, you might ask yourself, what is this current that I am struggling against? What am I afraid of that I fight the waves over which I seem to have no control?
