Currently reading: 'A Woman of the Iron People' by Eleanor Arnason. It belongs to a genre (that I did not know about) called anthropological science fiction. The story narrates the first account of a space traveller called Lixia (a woman) from near future making contact with a new sentient race on an alien planet. The new race is intelligent, humanoid, furred and somewhat primitive. Lixia studies and narrates the customs and lifestyle of this race through a woman called Nia who's her companion on a journey they have to undertake. I haven't finished yet, so more later.
Currently listening to: A Heavy Metal band called 'Lamb Of God' that belongs to the New Wave of American Heavy Metal. Their style is Metalcore/Grindcore with elements of progressive metal. The songs are frantic-paced and aggressive, with post-grunge growling vocals that characterise so many new bands. It's a first for me, and I'm enjoying it.
Currently thinking of: An offsite for my team. Inspired by this visioning exercise that I recetly attended for a client, I think I'm gonna hold something similar for August.
