The Hávamál Project – Day 7, verse 19


It took me many years to grasp the wisdom within this verse. As a younger man I was against drinking and partying. I often wonder how much I missed out on by “Shunning the mead.” Of course we can’t live life in reverse. I’m glad I found the camaraderie that comes with shared drink.

That said the second part of this verse is also important. If you’re too drunk to speak to the point, it’s time to call it a night!

I invite you to take this journey with me. You can find the Bellows translation of the Hávamál HERE. If you have a favorite passage share it with me either via e-mail or social media.

You can find me in all the fashionable internet places and follow along as I go:
