"March winds are the morning yawn"

Happy birthday to thewordoffred, and happy early birthday to lovefromgirl and emerdavid! May you each have a wonderful day and a fantastic year to come.

And I have some news of the weird and not-so-weird...

* From NewScientist: "'Vampire' Discovered in Mass Grave": "A skeleton exhumed from a grave in Venice is being claimed as the first known example of the 'vampires' widely referred to in contemporary documents."

* Speaking of vampire news, I think I may have to break down and read The House of Night series; I've just discovered that the books are set in my old high school, feature some of my favorite places in my hometown, and even include cameo appearances by real teachers I had in class. This certainly piques my curiosity. I do feel a bit cheated, though: if there were vampires roaming the halls when I was there, I never noticed. And considering the fact I had a Brontë novel glued under my arm for my entire high school experience (and occasionally some Poe, as well), you'd at least think they would've known they could say hello. I even wore black to prom, for heaven's sake - with an "updo" exposing my neck! Ah, well.

* The March issue of Journey to the Sea, the online magazine devoted to myth, is now available, and it includes interesting articles on Doris Lessing, Aesop, and "Mythos and Logos: Two Ways of Explaining the World."

"Springtime is the land awakening.
The March winds are the morning yawn."
