Benjamin and I visited Quitty Park this afternoon...

  1. I don't know what the runes mean but how interesting. I wonder how they got there. I wonder if it was someone doing a spell of some kind, like a Pagan or Wiccan person. In which case I would leave them where I found them. I don't know. It's just so unusual. :-)

  2. The woods is located near a college...so I would not be surprised if there was some sort of Pagan/Wiccan somethin' of another going on out there.

    I looked them up--one is Fehu and the other is Uruz. Both signify good things--wealth/strength--but that's during a runecast. I don't know what it means to just find 'em in the woods?!?!?!

  3. I was going to ask if you found the Runes, or if you had drawn them earlier in the day! :) Wonderful. I'm getting mine out today, to bring upstairs. Haven't had them out in a long time.

    They're not just (or even commonly) used for spells, and even if they were, they most likely wouldn't have been handled by someone with ill intent - you'd probably pick up a bad feeling in the woods if that were the case. As for Wiccans - they believe in harming none- as in Harming None. So no worries there.

    If they were mine, they would have been left or dropped there after a meditation. I wouldn't worry about it, unless they have an "off" vibe to them.
    A really cool find! Would have me smile to find them.

  4. You know, the other "odd" aspect of finding them is...the flood. Where they were found is a completely new landscape--it used to be a steep, wooded hill and now it is nearly cleared (and flat from erosion) due to the raging flood waters.

    I have only good feelings about them--no worries. When I discovered the first one I was elated and popped it into my pocket. Then, Benjamin found the second. It wasn't until later I realized maybe I shouldn't have taken them...and then I became wary of their original intent. I didn't want to mess up anyone's mojo. :)

  5. I think that if they were a part of a spell or something they would probably have drawn and buried the symbol on a piece of paper, rather than leave part of their set behind. ??
    But I can't say for sure, of course!
