Invocation to Mimir’s Well

We stand before the sacred well of dark wisdom
And we ask the Presence deep within
What he would give us, if we desire.
(All call out: “Hail Mimir, Keeper of the Well of the Ancestors!”)
Would you sacrifice an eye for this wisdom,
Forever seeing only from the focus of the archer?
Would you sacrifice both eyes, and live in darkness
In exchange for the light of knowing what will be?
Would you give up your ears, and hear nothing
But the music of the heavenly cycles?
(All call out: “Hail Mimir, Keeper of the Well of the Ancestors!”)
Would you give up your legs, and never walk
That you might follow in a path of silent knowledge?
Would you give up the work of your hands
That you might work only with what lies behind your eyes
And what lies behind the eyes of the universe?
Would you give up your life itself
And live only to be a channel for this truth?
(All call out: “Hail Mimir, Keeper of the Well of the Ancestors!”)
What would you give for knowing the day
Of your death, and that of everyone else’s?
What would you give for the knowledge
That might stop one death, one day of pain, one night of fear?
Hail Mimir, you who see into the heart and mind
From the blind darkness of your depths,
And who giveth nothing without its worthy price.
(All call out: “Hail Mimir, Keeper of the Well of the Ancestors!”)

Chant: We Go Into the well of Silence
(Each comes forth and stares into the bowl of stones and water, and then steps away. The mead is poured into the libation well as an offering to Mimir.)

Lighten Up – At last, a blonde male joke! (Sorry, Guys!)

At last, a blonde male joke!

Tree Planters

There were two blonde guys working for the city council.

One would dig a hole, the other would follow behind him and fill the hole in.

They worked furiously all day without rest, one guy digging a hole, the other guy filling it in again.

An onlooker was amazed at their hard work, but couldn’t understand what they were doing. So he asked the hole digger, ” I appreciate the
effort you are putting into your work, but what’s the story ? You dig a hole and your partner follows behind and fills it up again.”

The hole digger wiped his brow and sighed,

” Well, normally we are a three-man team, but the guy who plants the trees is sick today.”

Blessings To You & Yours On This Fantastic Saturday!

Weekend Pictures, Images, Comments, Graphics
I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend. I must apologize for running so late. I got up early this morning, believe it or not! Then I took my medication for my back and it knocks me out. So back to sleep I went. I finally got up at 10:30. Then I had to rush around and pick the house up real quick. We have the cable company coming out AGAIN! This is the sixth trip to our house they have made. I am about ready to pull my hair out at them. No, that’s not a good idea! Instead, I am going to pull their hair out. Yeah, that’s the ticket. Anyway they are supposed to be here between 1 and 3. So if I suddenly go POOF! during post, you know what happened.

I have rambled enough. Time to get down to business, lol!

Have a great weekend, my luvs,

Lady A
