Here is some #WednesdayWisdom
Wednesday, which was taken from the ancient Norse word Wodensdag after the Norse god ‘Woden’ or you may know him as Odin.
Odin known for his great wisdom, sorcery and poetry.
The ‘Mead of Poetry’ gave Odin his talent to write poems. These stories are found in The Prose Eddas, by Snorri Sturluson.
Odin is the god of the Aesir, a master of the runes.
Odin sacrificed his left eye at the Spring of Mimir so he would gain ancient knowledge of the world.
Odin had three sons with Frigg also known as Freyja. Their names are Thor, Baldr, Vadaar, Vali. He rules the Valkyries that take worthy dead Viking warriors to Valhalla the most honored, heavenly, place for the dead.
It is your day I’ll drink a mead, wave a pint your way.
Write a poem as you sip your drink. Does your mead help you think?
Wise warrior god gazes down with a loving nod, he smiles, approves with his one eye wink with every sip of mead one thinks?
Drink a mead and write some poetry today. Remember: Never drink and drive! Be wise like Odin and plan ahead.
Enjoy your Wodensday!
