Lance, thank you for giving me a couple of things to share with my classes next week at Lakehead University (Thunder Bay, ON, Canada). It's always been a pleasure to read your blog. Thank you again for sharing. Now I'll play it (teach it) forward.


Och, this is perfect! My son just asked me last night did I know many gods. Of course, I asked him back, "Personal acquaintance?" And we settled into trading names and stories, it turns out this was the first mention to him ever of the Norse gods, and he was curious about what they were like, what they meant. Well, now I have a poem to memorize and recite - this is a lovely intro to what gods are, and are for.

Thanks friend.

Paul, please let us know how it goes. What are you teaching this semester?

Michael, glad to be of service. How old is your son? Has he ever watched Stargate SG:1? The Egyptian gods and the Norse gods figure prominently in the storyline, although not quite in their traditional forms.
