I hear frogs just outside my window! Ahhhh! So happy!
Neil Price and the Viking Mind: three lectures at Cornell University
Professor Neil Price delivers the first of three lectures, September 25, 2012, focusing on the fundamental role that narrative, storytelling and dramatisation played in the mindset of the Viking Age (8th-11th centuries), occupying a crucial place not only in the cycles of life but particularly in the ritual responses to dying and the dead.
Just watched the first lecture in this series and I highly recommend it!
I want an erratic flood rock in my yard
Bit of Oregon history for you folks: At the end of the last ice age, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington were racked by catastrophic floods, which resulted when ice dams in Idaho and Canada melted and broke under the pressure of the glacial lakes they contained.
More than 40 feet of water covered what…
It seems we are on the verge of spring here in southwest Washington.
I’ve been hearing more song birds in the mornings then I have in months.
Last night on the way home from work I heard frogs (spring peepers?).
We haven’t needed a fire at night the past few days.
I’m very excited to see what a PNW spring is like!
