I am weird. There’s no other way to put it. Weird. Not on purpose but that’s the way it’s ended up. I just am…weird.
Take the fact that I live my life straddling Realms. I spend so much time journeying that I experience whole days when I’m not quite sure if I’m in ordinary consciousness or an altered state. It feels a bit like dream walking. Not a bad thing in itself but not exactly conducive to getting the laundry done when it needs attention. It’s days like this that I wonder how my hubby puts up with me. I mean he’s a solid stable kinda guy. The kind of guy you can rely on in a pinch. Me under pressure? I can’t even be sure some days what Realm I’m dwelling in! Not exactly the kind to count on… but if you need to talk with a dearly departed I’m your guy!
Then there’s the Runes. I see Runes everywhere. I don’t have a refrigerator. I have an Isa box. Books? Rows of Ansuz. Things like that. I am pretty good at interpreting things into common parlance. But when push comes to shove that’s an Isa box.
Do I mind being so weird? Not really. It happened so slowly that I had time to adjust myself as the change was occurring. Come to think of it I was pretty weird as a kid too. So I guess I never had to adjust. It was just because I was born this way.
I have learned to enjoy my weirdness to a certain degree. I mean I want to be happy like everyone else. So I best make peace with what and who I am. I don’t go around shouting at the top of my lungs to strangers “I’m weird!” But get to know me a little and it’s pretty clear.
So. I’m weird. Let’s not make a big deal out of it though. Let’s just combine our world views and make some magic together! Maybe you’ll discover you’re a little weird too!
