Gundisalv

This is a wild assortment of thoughts and 10-penny philosophies. It is art and art need not be perfect.

As it flows through our veins…

Love, as it is. As it runs. As it flows.
Love is but chemistry of the brain. This does not make it any less real. In truth it grounds it to reality in a way no rhetoric could capture. Understand yourself and then search beyond yourself.

A life…

Live a life that you would be eager to repeat.

We ought…

We ought to be unknowing gods, not egomaniacs with delusions of grandeur.
When man focuses on his fellow man, he will achieve that which gods have never dreamt.

bythegods:

Bragi
The son of Odin and Gunnlod, (a giantess) Bragi was the Germanic god of poetry and eloquence. Fancy. He was married to Idun, the goddess who kept the magic apples of youth.
When Loki returned to Asgard after masterminding the death of Baldr, Bragi, who was never at a loss for words, told the trickster that he was unwelcome company at the godly feast. Enraged, Loki called Bragi “the bragger,” whereupon Bragi threatened to twist off Loki’s head as the only sure method of stopping his lies. That’s Bragi-Justice. Odin tried to cool everyone down, but Loki was already ultra-pissed, and prophesied the destruction of the gods at Ragnarok before fleeing Asgard in a huff.
Bragi might’ve been a late addition to the Germanic pantheon, and it’s not unlikely that he was the addition of a poet, (skald) since in Germanic courts, poets were venerated second only to kings. Bragi was portrayed as an old, bearded man carrying a harp, and when oaths were sworn they were solemnized by speaking over a vessel called the Cup of Bragi.


A god worth worshipping.

In this Day and Age

The gods will bow before man, for they no longer hold our chains. Only man holds his chains now.

A Golden Life

Why must youth be golden and elder age grotesque? Old age is merely the sign of a successful life! Live your age, love your age.

That kind…

The kind of relationship that lasts years and contains copious amounts of sex and cuddling. And peace and harmony.

Welcome to my college. My pride and joy.
