On Grief and Fate

Heathenry is often fatalistic and I think that is sometimes a good thing.  If nothing else, as polytheists with “imperfect” gods, we don’t blame our deities for everything that happens and don’t expect them to fix everything.  When someone is grieving, remember to give them that time and right.  Our ancestors did. Don’t fall for a new form of Social Darwinism.
