For my readers that have been reading for a while, thank you. For those of you that are new here, welcome! I am going to make a completely obvious statement.
I am a huge nerd. I wave that flag proudly.
I even have a coffee cup that says “Nerds Rule” on it.
To answer the obvious title to this post. Am I easily distracted by dragons? Yes, I am. Obviously. This is not one of those moments or post where you should be hearing Talisen gently expressing to the fans that things are “a shit show, obviously!”
Dragon, the word itself, derives from the Latin language. Draconem (nominative draco) meaning “huge serpent”; however, it does not imply that there is any sort of mythological connotation’s to the word. Also, the word comes from the ancient Greek word “draconta,” meaning “to watch,” suggesting that the beast guards valuables.
There is a long rich history of dragons and they were thought of as being the exotic animal that sometimes protective of the tower or princess. At other times vicious and dangerous creatures. Honestly, there is so much history that it is hard to sum up in a few short paragraph’s for a blog post and it is hard to figure out when or where the origin’s of the dragon started from. I would like to go into detail however, In this case the Wikipedia page for dragons does a great job of going into detail. It is a great and fantastic read. (Click here for the article!)
Another great recourse is from the American Museum of Natural History. They go into great detail and have sections that you can click through for some great information. (Link!)
I think I blabbered enough about dragons for the day. At least enough for a blog post anyhow! I will leave you with one of my favorite song’s by Imagine Dragons. Enjoy!
