It has potential

My poor neglected dissertation got literally taken off the shelf and dusted off on Sunday, after sitting around untouched for I guess three months. I spent yesterday and today reminding myself just what exactly I was planning to write about, afterall.

The nice thing--actually, the really nice thing--is that in coming back to it, I am even more excited about its potential to be something pretty cool, an actual original contribution to the field of Old Norse saga studies.

I like even better that my idea from eight years ago, to dedicate my dissertation to Stephen Loring, still fits it perfectly. His influence on the trajectory of my thinking, as the first anthropologist I ever worked with, has been incalculable and continues very much to manifest itself.
