Today was, well, Wednesday of course. I don't like Wednesday much because it is right in the middle of the week and I always feel tired and less enthusiastic about it. And less inspired too. It used to be different: when I was taking my acting lessons, Wednesday evenings were the highlights of my weeks.But anyway, for some reason, I remembered today that Wednesday etymologically means Wotan's Day, i.e. Odin's Day or Mercury's Day. Originally, it is the same god, only with different names and a different place in the godly hierarchy. It was a fitting Odin's Day today: dark and rainy. Somehow, remembering the origin of the name made me enjoy the day a bit more, made me forget it looked miserable outside.
