Excerpt: "As you transform into more of a leader, you have managed to provoke and anger some of the people around you. Sometimes your pride gets in the way of your humility.
You are leaning a bit too much on your intellect and not taking into consideration the feelings of others as much as you should.

5 yrs ago at La Garde, France #renfaire, S bought a "Sowilo" rune - her very first "with my own money" purchase

it was stolen in 2018 and i'm unable to find another. i just have this photo of the vendor's display

any ideas on how to find them? #runes #france #crystals #lagarde
the event was the 2015 "Nocturnes Médiévales"…

i should mention, i don't speak French. so that website might have a big old list of event vendors and i'd be "wah?"
hers was rose quartz, the photo shows the one that was on display. if i can find the vendor in France i'd love to buy another from them as she really loved.

In the early part of the first millennium CE, the #IndoEuropean language known as Proto-#Germanic diverged into an East branch (which included #Gothic) and a Northwest branch.

Northwest then split into West and North branches when Proto-#Norse developed in #Scandinavia. Image
Until the 8th century, #Germanic #languages, including Proto-#Norse, were written in Elder Futhark, the earliest #runic #alphabet.

The name #Futhark comes from the initial phonemes in the names of the first six #runes:
ᚠ ᚢ ᚦ ᚨ ᚱ ᚲ

By the beginning of the #Viking Age around 800 CE, Proto-#Norse had evolved into Old Norse, and #Scandinavia's writing system transitioned from the 24 #runes of Elder #Futhark to Younger Futhark's 16 runes.

The #Swedish #Sparlösa #Runestone from ~800 CE features both #alphabets. Image
