Question:

Share a picture of something meaningful to you.

Answer:

Personal photo

I could post all sorts of stuff for this, pictures of family, ancestors etc. but I figured a picture of something that actually ties into Heathenry would be a good idea. Also a lot of those things were addressed in previous prompts. This is me, and was taken at a vetrnaetr celebration in 2019, I wish I would have taken more pictures, but I didn’t want to be inappropriate in any way. I felt like this ritual was perhaps one of the first times I truly felt like I had experienced a REAL ritual. Yeah, the old Kindred I was in did things, but it was really informal and the actual religious side of things always took a back seat to everyone talking about Football or something that sort of skewed the whole experience.

During the ritual, one of the goði came around and drew runes on our foreheads with some ashen paint. I’m a sucker for symbolic stuff like that in any sort of ritual, so it was really cool.
