I did finish that initial span of getting to know the runes - but I did come to gradually abandon the commitment to typing out all of the highlights to share on here!
It was a great learning experience, with lasting consequences in my life to this day, but other than the occasional reading or rune magick I’ve honestly been moving away from the runes since then - until very recently.
Now the turning of Jera is playing first fiddle for me, and I know I am going to re-commit to an even longer period of immersion in the ways of the runes, while living nomadically and trekking across the countryside. True, I do see what we did as a kind of runic initiation, but there is definitely always more to know. And I know that very soon after my enlistment in the military is over with, I’m diving into the runes even deeper!
