Thor and His wives
OMGZ I love these candles! They’re so pretty! Anyway this kinda sparked some thinky thoughts:
I was having a discussion with a friend of mine about Thor the other day. How there was some people out there trying to reclaim the swastika as a symbol of Heathenry as a sign of Thor’s more esoteric powers and me getting a “Oh Hellz naw” vibe from Him. Somethings are too desecrated to reclaim. That is one. AAANYWAY this woman was offended how people just thought of Thor as a complete and utter simpleton because he’s more of a warrior than a scholar.
Thor is a brilliant military tactician and general. He has a very sound grasp of battlefield tactics and all sorts of good stuff. He’s quite a sweetheart as well. Everyone has different gifts and interests. One person might be brilliant at drawing, one at writing. Some are brilliant in ways that keep the artists and poets safe, such as making sure battles get won efficiently and with fewer casualties on their side as on the other. It doesn’t make someone any less brilliant if they excel in something you do not, or is not considered “important”
The world, both mundane and divine, needs many pieces. We all need farmers, fishermen, roughnecks, and welders. We need those people who work in Fast Food, and all that other stuff. Every position has value, but it isn’t treated as such, and that’s a shame.
I’m just rambling though. I’m just sick and tired of people looking down at someone because they don’t have the “accepted version” of what people view as “Intelligence” and “talent.” Ugh.
