    1. I’m very glad to hear you think so! 🙂

      It looked shorter in Word’s standard format.

      Check out the rest of the issue. Elimae always has surprising and great writing.

      1. It’s always good to see writing settled in its permanent home: Word doesn’t do it justice and can really rob a piece of much of its character, I think 🙂

        Will check out the mag – sounds like my cup of tea!

  1. This is a strong piece, Berit. And it’s in a great venue.

    Good writing throughout – “It’s a dimorphism, you tell yourself. Hedgehog babies that are exposed to temperatures below freezing, develop long wolverine legs, but keep the hedgehog spines. It’s dimorphism, it’s nature, it’s just how it is.”

    Nice work.

    1. Thank you so much, Sam!

      I’m very glad to hear you liked it!

      Elimae is such a great lit mag, they always have something surprising and challenging and strange-in-a-good-way.

    1. Very glad to hear you liked it! 🙂

      And thank you so much for reading and commenting!

      Elimae is indeed a great lit mag, they always have something unusual and challenging.

      Do you have a story in their archives maybe?

      1. Best of luck and happy writing!

        Btw, when I click on the link to your blogspot blog, nothing happens. The blog is not up currently?

  2. I always enjoy what Elimae chooses to publish. Great to see your work there, Berit. Love the brevity of the piece, and how you manage to pack so much into it. The refrain…Govinda, Govinda…transcribed from a Sanskrit Nightmare…just wow! And all that nature: you know I’m a sucker for nature. “…it’s just how it is.” So true.

    1. Elimae always has something fun, interesting and challenging to read!

      Very glad to hear you enjoyed the nightmare. 🙂 I tried to write it as closely to the actual nightmare itself. 🙂

      Thank you so much for reading and commenting! .)
