This post had its genesis in a question on reddit/mythology, encouraging other redditors to share their favourite myths from their home countries. I’ve always loved the fact that Wolverine made my world, especially if you look at it from an airplane, where the scars left by the retreating glaciers at the end of the Ice Age do make you think of claw marks.
Wolverine made the world, and who mistook his own ass for caribou jerky. Coyote is the trickster out west, but among the East Coast Innu the wolverine took that role. Wolverine could also be a bully, which fits with the ferocious nature of the animal, who will fight bears 10 times their size.
No internet or phone, so I won’t be posting this week. Living in a remote place has these challenges from time to time.
Going to Newfoundland. The image above is of the bird rock at Cape St. Mary’s, and the photograph is by Magi Nams from her blog Hiking in Canada. Check it out for many more great pictures.
and it only took me three years… seriously, I’ve been blogging since Jan. 2015, and in that time I’ve gone from 30 views in my first month to 8 159 this January. Thanks to everyone who stopped by, and here’s hoping you’ll continue to find something here to interest you.

If you have visited this blog before, you will notice that the look has changed a lot. I decided that it needed more white space and a lighter look overall. I hope that you’ll like it. My only concern with the new theme, Twenty-Twelve, is that some of the text is in very small print. If this is a problem, let me know and I’ll figure out a fix.
