Metaphors In Runic, Part VI
Well, the wind is still here. Its strength has dwindled slightly, but not by much. It’s brought down a few branches from one of our trees, and the creaking pine (which could fall over at any time) has been making some awful sounds.
I’ve been practicing my guitar a lot, discovered new music, and read a lot of books. I’ll post some new music recommendations soon because I found some amazing people!!
My love of poetry has come back with a vengeance, and I’ve been writing about pretty much everything, so you can expect lots of new poems from me over the next few months! 🙂
I am a match just been struck, and I will be setting as many things on fire as I can before I burn out.
I’m not sure if I’ve actually explained the Runic thing properly at any point, so now’s as good a time as any.
All my life I’ve loved codes, I used to make them up as a kid and memorise them, and about… nine months ago? I decided I didn’t want anyone reading what I wrote, so I looked up various old alphabets, and took a shine to Runic. I kind of combined different versions and made my own.
After a couple of days, I could write in Runic as fast as English, and it’s an awesome thing to have. So yeah, I decided to have a whole notebook in Runic.
Ciao!! 🙂 ❤ ^ ^
The runes developed centuries after the Old Italic alphabets from which they are probably historically derived. The debate on the development of the runic script concerns the question regarding which of the Italic alphabets should be taken as their point of origin and which, if any, signs should be considered original innovations added to the letters found in the Italic scripts. The historical context of the script’s origin is the cultural contact between Germanic people, who often served as mercenaries in the Roman army, and the Italian peninsula during the Roman imperial period (1st century BC to 5th century AD).[ ] The formation of the Elder Futhark was complete by the early 5th century, with the Kylver Stone being the first evidence of the futhark ordering as well as of the p rune.
