Anyone here interested in Runes at all?
 
I just noted we have had very little activity in this forum and thought I'd check in to see who here is using or interested in any system of runes??

i sometimes use ogham, but have not experimented with runes.

Still using Elder Futhark, but not as intensively as years back. :) I'm only focusing on bindrunes at the moment.

Same here. I tend to have periods where I work on runes for awhile, then switch to something else, then return to runes--or whatever subject it might be. At the moment I'm not doing much, although I did make a clay statuette of a goddess (Rosemerta) in which I inserted some bindrunes last week.

Yup, still working with them, still getting to grips with the uthark theory and seeing if it's worth pursuing.

I was just curious. Do any of you just work with the runes independently outside of a Norse/Heathen framework? (not sure if this question makes sense or not lol)

I've never worked with anything outside a heathen framework, sorry.

On runes, specifically, I can't use them at all. It's really strange. I have several books on the topic. I read them, but I can't absorb the information, even from a purely intellectual viewpoint. It's some sort of block that I haven't been able to get past. For awhile, that made me more determined, but then I finally realized they just aren't for me. Admitting I can't do something bothered me a bit, but sometimes you simply must realize your limits

I'm the same way with Egyptian deities. The information just won't stick in my head.

I learned them through Odin, so I really cannot separate the runes from the framework in which I have been taught. :) I may use them in a practice that's not used in the Northern paths, for instance, but I always use them with the rhythm and connections from the ways that gave birth to the runes.

thanks for the input! :) I guess I was just wondering if anybody viewed them as discreet/independent entities existing before Norse mythology etc and worked with them on their own.
