Five hundred new fairytales discovered in Germany

Nicely done on the review. Reading you has been a real treat. One of the things I think a community like ours is doing, is contributing to a new global paradigm. The runes have such a minimalist aspect that they are open to new frames of understanding. 

Thank you for being a part of our community.

(This article is reposted from my pseudonymous writings on Elhaz Ablaze).

We tend to think that galdor has something to do with rune magic, in particular due to certain authors who have promulgated this view despite the lack of any historical evidence to that effect. The word’s roots run to the meaning of “magic song”, with the intimation of a birdsong. There is nothing in there about runes.…
