Religious Melancholy? Show more
Despite living in a small town with more churches in it than restaurants , a norse pagan came through my line at work.
I commented on his pendant (the iconic hammer) and he just opened up about it. Instead of the common "have a blessed day," he said "may odin smile on you."
And that's all very nice! Though I really wish I had a recognizable symbol I could wear, or a proper symbol at all. Sometimes I feel very lonely.
