If you know the history of the Odin Stone the words might mean something to you perhaps even…maybe amuse. If you are unaware of this history it won’t or at least I think, mean little or nothing at all. Either way I hope you enjoy this piece.

Thank you (catspaws, MUSENYO, Amy Fan, Peter Gross, CrismanArt). I was asked the other day to write a story to be illustrated by a magnificent artist. I like twists in stories, a dash have reality, a pinch of fantasy (or more), sometimes, now and again a little family history. So for this story I was toying between my 34th great-grandfather (Thorfinn I Rollo (Brico) "Hausakliffer" (Skull-Splitter) Earl of Einarsson) or my 19th Lord Alexander (The Wolf of Badenoch) Stewart Buchan. Both of which have much to work with. The final decision was made on Thorfinn Hausakliffer Einarsson as I was asked for a barbarian story and felt a Viking was a grand start. In my research I learned og the Odin Stone and thought that a fine piece of the puzzle. One of my favorite parts about writing is the research. My least favorites “Spelling / Grammar”. I thank the editors!

How cool that you know so much about your family history, and quite impressive family tree you got too. Great piece!

Thank you Nicklas Gustafsson. I have learned more about my family this past year and a half than I had my entire life up to the point where I started researching. We all have some amazing history to discover given the time, oppertunity and tools to connect those dots. If you only go back to your 20th great grandfathers and there was no inbreeding in the line you would have 2,097,152 20th Great Grandfathers as well as 2,097,152 20th Great Grandmothers. How could there not be some family treasure in thoe kind of numbers. ;-)

Wow. Yeah, with those numbers you ought to find someone interesting. But as you said, you need the time and tools to find those people. I really hope i will find the time to do the research at some point. Would be really cool to learn more about ones history

Amazing creation and teaching within your poem, Lazy Bones! It might be that Odin's Stone is within all of us, for the rules are cosmically true, and again it's about the balance of the scales, as in energy. The broken oath that has to be healed from within by the one that broke it. It's him/her that needs healing till the guilt and pain is balanced. I love your art!***

Thank you so very much CrismanArt. I might be old fashioned in that my word is my bond. I have entered into multi-million dollar deals based on a mans word or handshake and mobilize my forces and make it happen. A week or two later the contract would arrive. It was one page and only referenced the price and types/quantity of homes I was to build. Today I find my clients or their predecessors are not the honorable people I had the pleasure of dealing with from years long gone. But my word still means something. If I had agreed to do something and the missed entering it in the insanely large 60 page contracts and in the pages of those contracts dictate that nothing said or written previously had any meaning that the contract trumps all, I still made my word good even if it cost me out of pocket. My competitors think I'm a fool for doing so, that tells me a lot about their word an honor (or lack of). You gotta look in that mirror everyday and better to respect who you see than be ashamed.
