It has now been three months since the birth of Rainbow Hill Meanders (RHM). And The Hill still meanders through the space/time continuum, subject to glorious subject.
You may have noticed that the tag line has changed to better reflect the blog’s content. Writer’s A.D.D. more correctly sums up the eclectic nature of the subjects covered.
There is always a bright, new, shiny subject that needs exploring.
We live in a most amazing world and I often say:
“Oh, I can use that in a book!”
“Why is that so?”
“Where did that come from?”
And quite often I add: “Ooh, I want to know more.” That said there are a lot of strong themes that will remain the same.
I’m passionate about mythology.
Not only will there be a cultural mythology of the month (or months), but also an exploration of the cultural significance of certain common parts of our lives such as cats or roses. The latter being tenuously tied in by a connection to the month in which the subject is posted.
I’m fond of quirky history and why and how we celebrate things.
I feel strongly about the battle against several diseases and will put those forward as millions of people hope for a cure. May none of them be forgotten.
I have learned that a single or even multiple blog posts can’t do justice to the subjects I cover or even do more than scratch the surface of the wealth of information out there.
With completely random bias, I select what I think are the most salient points. I then tell myself I’ll come back to the subject in future posts. On most of the subjects I cover, it is unlikely that I will ever run out of new material. There’s just so much good stuff out there.
Next month I hope to add widgets and make it easy to search subject by subject through the various posts. It will be all the excitement of new sidebars.
As always send me any comments and questions you have. I love to hear from you.
May there be a little myth, a little surprise and a lot of joy in everyone’s life.
Other subjects that often catch my eye: The Arts, Bengal cats and Bengal Cat Pictures, Quotes, Names, Writers, Writing, Superstitions, Folklore, Fable, Seattle, Flowers, Gems, Anime, Fonts, Ecosystems, and so forth. Stay tuned.

Three months–how time flies. You have covered so many subjects and given references to anyone who would like to learn more on the subject you lightly covered. It is great to have passions and then act on them. I learn a little more everytime I read one of your blogs although I must admit mythology is not my passion, although it is interesting.
