I prefer to face the outside seating area when I go to the cafe. It doesn’t matter whether I am alone or am with someone; I rather look over the people seated and into the treetops, than to watch the people walking in and out.

People-watching is almost a writer’s trait, so I can’t help…

Gah. This got me in the feelers a little bit, after having recently hugged a number of friends good-bye who I won’t be seeing for nine months. I’m looking forward to hugging them hello.

I would love to see a longer, more in-depth analysis of the dynamics between the different deity groups in Norse mythology and the potential connection one could make between those dynamics and people’s understanding of race in our world, the fact that race is a construction, the way race relations have evolved over time, in different parts of the world, different socio-economic settings…I’m curious how one might explore the way people can apply these broader issues to the mythology and what would come of that, if anything at all. Might that sort of analysis be a thing which exists?
