Odin said somethin akin to “Words makes for more words. Deeds makes for more deeds.”
I believe that stating openly our plans immediately ruins them! Secrecy is key. Many times time will be the ultimate test of our convictions. There is a bit of fear in me to openly let many people know what I have scheming, and strangely enough the less time I think of doing things and go with the force of Will, it easily manifests in many ways.
With that, there are so many things I have the desire to unleash through this vehicle called StormandStress.blog…
Here are some things that I CAN talk about openly at this moment in time.
Seems as though my writings are only occult themed. I’m no expert. I don’t profess to have some experience that puts me in the “know.” But I feel excited by the state of Knowing, and if I can inspire other people to become ecstatic with this knowledge that is good enough for me. But this website needs to also be generally updated.
I have been in the process of developing new creative outlets since this summer. These things take time, but the end results that I feel are really exciting and sincerely realize my expression will be shown soon.
One of those projects has taken a year to complete and finally I have finished! That project is VEMYRLEKAM – solo raw black metal. VEMYRLEKAM is a magical project and thus, I have written lots of lyrics and poems in the process. Those are two creative outlets that have completely rejuvenated me after quite some time in a stagnant frozen tundra.. There will be more news on this project soon but let it be known this will be a major aspect of my life from this point forward.
I have also been immensely enjoying using pen and paper – and imitating the stippling / cross hatching technique (that you see of many Gustav Dore prints) to make strange sketches. There will be more news on these projects in the future, nothing I can say too openly about. For now, its just about developing, challenging and not simply just imitating the typical imagery in the surrealist or grotesque realm.
Another project I have been developing has the focus of using a wood burning tool and creating artworks on pieces of wood. My first use of the wood burning tool was ritually crafting a set of Runes. From there I began to use the wood burning tool to actually craft images of nature and Odin. I first was inspired to learn wood burning because my father sells wood burn art pieces. For me, the next step required in the process is framing and designing easily useable hangers / hooks so that they can be used as decoration.
Below is the last piece I’ve completed. There is more work to be done and technique to improve on. For now, my major focus will be writing and recording more VEMYRLEKAM material.
