Summer has felt a small eternity, full of comings and goings. I haven't been home in about two months, which has taken something of a toll on me, though the travels have been joyous and meaningful. School begins soon, and it should prove a busy semester. Trying to get through some personal projects before then, including a (short) essay on the Great Fairy Fountains from Breath of the Wild. Otherwise, just a few new riddles and some new headings for the website!
Summer is always an odd time for me, torn as I am between the doing of things and the reflecting on them. On one hand, I desire to be "out and about" in the world, as I have been for the past two months; yet, on the other, I desire to curl up under a tree and read poetry, doing nothing but loaf around. And the closer we get to autumn, the stronger the second pull will become, until activity comes largely to a halt (as it moves to more mental landscapes). Hope you're all well, and surviving the current heat.

The universe of The Legend of Zelda is replete with multifarious architectural oddities, beautiful and resonating structures, and ineffably-mysterious temples hidden in the remote corners of the world. It is my hope to explore said places, shedding light upon some of their salient features, and fulfilling the goals laid out by the introduction, the main goal of which is to help people understand and appreciate the unspoken, yet deeply-felt, allure of these locations and structures.
