Aftermath

Reading about the Owens fire, I never got a sense of how much Schooner Gulch burned, if there was any mention at all. That's a favorite haunt of ours: a magical forest walk down to a dramatic beach with cliffs rising and colorful rock formations showing striated layers. My daughter's been wanting to show me some rocks at Schooner one …

Valkyries

This is my third and last post on Nordic mythology, for the moment at least! Valkyries: Here's one story. Odin brought a Volva (female magician, sybil or practitioner of the seidr) named Heid (she may be equivalent to the German Erda (Earth Mother) and/or Frigga and/or Vala) from the Underworld. Odin and Heid's children were the Valkyries (there were reputed …

Fire on the Coast

A week ago, I left work heading home south down Highway 1, the main coastal road of Northern California, and saw billowing smoke in a long swath just east of the road. It's funny how the mind works. I moved last year from a county that was fraught with massive fires year after year. I've been thinking, "It's moister here, …

Nordic Mysteries

I recently agreed to write a piece for an author anthology coming out in 2025. The invitation was to include a Valkyrie. That plunged me into a review of Norse mythology this past weekend. It was a vitalizing journey (did I mention nerdiness in my last post?). Giants, Norns and Valkyries To understand Valkyries, one really has to come to …

What was your dream job as a kid?

This is pretty funny. Or seems funny now. I wonder how many other people imagined this same thing. Well, at times, in early adolescence, I imagined working on a ship, traveling the world. This vision was based on old novels and was not very thoroughly worked out in my mind, I can say with certainty now. But my next aspiration, …

Excerpt:

...
Reluctantly, she turned her attention back to Kridenit. She knew he wasn’t the source of energy that had called her away from her planet, but he was somehow involved. Was he an emissary of that one?
With the metal bar around her neck, she’d lost touch with that deep throbbing, mind-jumbling shout. She’d felt like a zombie, with no powers, and no recollection of anything in her past. Now, the anesthetic of the strange metal was seeping away. The overpowering voice did not return but memories rushed back. As she recalled all she'd left behind, her stomach rebelled. She lurched to her feet, hand to her mouth, ready to wretch.
