(ma1176). In my reply to her (in Italy), I asked for her permission to
re-print her essay in the sub-forum.
I've made my first set of runes this morning.
I wanted to make them in a natural way, but I couldn't make them using
the wood, so I asked myself: 'How can I make them?'
Suddenly, I had a flash of inspiration.
I get to the garden and I picked up some grass and sand, then I went
to to kitchen and I started making a mixture of sand, grass, flour and
water to make my runes.
I made 24 little circles of that mixture and then, with the point of a
knife I've written a rune for each circle.
At the end, I've coloured the surface of those circle with a brilliant
green, and I've cooked them in the oven.
While they still were in the oven, I received a phone call from my
best friend, so I spoke with her and I completely forgot my runes for
Then when I was passing the kitche to reach the living room I've
suddenly remembered them, but it was late, they were completely burnt.
I was going to throw them away when I had an other flash of
inspiration, so I coloured the symbols of the runes in white, living
the rest black, and now they're good.[/quote]
I asked Marta for permission to quote her here because her answer shows not only some real creativity but also a willingness to write about it in a language not "her own". I am impressed, and I hope you all will be too.
Thank you, Marta..!
