Nice to hear

Heard over the holiday that a friend of a friend was doing research related vaguely to my PhD topic. Emailed her to ask if my work was of any use to her. She replied,

You might be interested to know that there is still much rueful shaking of heads at every meeting of those interested in Irish history of science that Nicholas Whyte abandoned the arena!

No great regrets on my part, but nice to hear that my efforts were not wasted.

    I’ve said it elsewhere, but I continue to believe that the snake in Kinda is just right. It’s a storybook snake, a carnival-dragon snake, a snake created out of the consciousness of the Kinda in the same way as Hindle’s paper dolls are people. It’s not “My god, it’s the Mara!”. It’s “this is how we convince ourselves that the Mara is something that can be defeated.”
