Havamal Snippets 1: Be Aware of Your Surroundings

It's Wednesday (Woden/Odin's Day) which means that it's time for another verse from the Havamal 'Sayings of the High One - Odin'. The poem full of wisdom, both everyday and ethereal. (The poem can be found in full HERE):
1. All door-ways,
before going forward,
should be looked to;
for difficult it is to know
where foes may sit
within a dwelling.


A common theme throughout the Havamal is to be aware of your surroundings because you do not know whether friend or foe may be lurking thererin.
