The word ‘life’ conjures the ordinary and the ordinary are experiences common to all humans except that their routineness, their repetition, their commonality make them invisible in the busy-ness of loaded days. This book tries to make them visible again. Human experiences are varied and many; the few in this book stand for all that are not in it. Mythologies of Late is tell-tales of the extraordinary in the ordinary, a mirror onto societies of people and places for re-cognition, aimed at returning readers into ideas of themselves, giving them the joy of owning their familiarity and , I hope, their meaning.
