A Mix of Routine and Spontaneity
Lately, I've been feeling like my days are getting away from me and I'm not accomplishing the things that I want or need to do. So, although I am still getting things done, it doesn't seem like it and it doesn't feel very rewarding. I need to get back to schedules and "to do" lists, but I don't want to get tied down to a predictable and humdrum existence. So, how can I find a balance, where I have enough routine to be productive, but not so much that my life loses all signs of spontaneity?
As I am in the process of making my own set of Runes on wooden staves, I decided that, this week, I would try a different approach to my draw. In fact, I did a toss or a roll, instead of pulling them out of the bag. With the staves, I can't draw them out of a bag, if for no other reason than they will be different sizes, so I might be inclined to avoid the skinny Isa, for example, and choose fat Dagaz. Instead, I will give them all a toss and choose the three that are closest to the center of the pile and face up. Using my current Runes for this week's question and following that course, I got Othala, Thurisaz, and Jera.
