This morning when I took son to the bus stop, the inside of my nose froze. It was crinkly and weird as I tried to breathe through my mouth. My son, who is 6, thought it was funny that mom was making such weird faces.

Ahh new places, new experiences.

In the Zander stories, the climate where he lives is, at times, brutal. Very cold, very unpleasant. But I never thought of freezing nostrils. Of the chilling cold on the face. We just didn’t have that in OK. Or CA where I’m originally from.

I can see new scenes for the Zander stories.

Hope you have a good monday. **Waves**

As posted on FB;

Ok internets, I am doing research on angels in mythology any site/book recommends that aren’t psychotic paranoia bullshit but actual; according to X this angel is X and stuff like that? I don’t want an over steeping in religious dogma I need the actual references of where this information originated (The Qua’ran, Torah, Bible etc.) 

 

To properly world-build this I need a bit of historic mythology knowledge from a wide range of sources, not JUST Christianity or what have you.

Visited the library this morning. Was a wee bit disappointed, until I remembered I can go online and request books to be sent to this branch. Oh happy days. So I just requested a whole bunch of books including ones suggested by my flist. Thank you! :D


It is funny how we grow and change. Once upon a time I loathed the idea of first person. Yet my favorite books are first person. Go fig. I realized that and pushed that loathing aside and have found myself enjoying first person now. Shocking I know.

UF I have long detested. But then I hate fads and it felt very faddish to me. But I have several 'friends' here on lj (most on my other lj actually) who write UF. So it felt like I was betraying my 'friends' by being stubborn and disliking UF. So I started reading it and I found myself liking some of it (God forbid!).

I might even admit to being a fan of it.

But that is what self-education is all about, isn't it? Teaching ones-self to change ones opinion. Learning how to open your mind up more than it was before. Lord knows I have a long way to go, but I really hope, I truly believe I will be a better person because I am pushing out of my comfort zones.

Anyways, I'm not even sure if that makes sense to anyone besides me.
