My Book of Runes - Today's Counsel

Since the first of the New Year things have been disappointing and chaotic on Facebook for me. I don't understand why people are the way they are...I have been ignored by close friends and there are those whose nature it is to argue and debate if they don't agree with my posts at times.  That's not what I'm there for.
Before I remove myself from FB a thought came to me...the thought of my Book of Runes and how they were a comforting source of wisdom from the Universe pointing me always in the right direction.  The above are the 25 runes that are engraved on stones and held in a velvet pouch that I draw from when I need their counsel.  How I pull and place depends on if the counsel is to be read right-side up or reversed.  The reverse being a bit darker in nature than if pulled right-side up.  Some people disregard the way a rune is placed and just take from the whole message what they get from it.
Today I pulled "4 - Retreat reversed" 
So I read it and posted it on my FB page. It may be a daily practice or I may share depending on how I feel at the time.  I'm so glad they "called" me today.  I really needed guidance on how to be on FB and toward my friends, a few who I have known for decades!  I needed help and I was immediately directed by the Universe within to go to my Runes!  
Peace abides.

My Journal

Will my unused year-old journal be the beginning of the project I have been searching for?  
I'll find out because I am starting this morning to use it to write and paint about whatever my soul wants to express. The two words that came to me today were, "nothing matters."
I felt worry leave my mind and body, and I felt a "letting go" of something I was holding on to.  In the end, nothing matters. Trying to make something happen - going by the formula everyone seems to use to get their art/book out there doesn't work with my lifestyle and limitations.  Whatever I want to do has to be something I can do on my own and not rely on someone else to do all the leg work.  A small bit, maybe, that's all.
The rest I want to say will go into my journal.  Things are changing. The world is uncertain.  Those who rely on selling their creations on social media and etsy and amazon, etc. Well, what happens when banks go under and the world is in turmoil because of the actions of certain people who have the power to turn the world upside down?  Is your book or painting going to matter?  Maybe, if when left behind it is found under rubble and ashes.  
So, I'm taking a load off and am going to say what I want to say, which by the way, can't be said on Facebook!  What is wrong with people?  There is no support and I can count my friends on one hand.  I can't say anything or I'm ignored or people are discontented with me.  Huh!  I have changed my usage on Facebook now and that has led me to start a project using my journal to write and paint when an image is called for.  People have created books from their own journals, and with that idea at the forefront of my mind, I am starting today which will make me one of those ...what do they call them....busy people!  :)
