Odd characters are everywhere aren’t they?
There are strong and weak people,rather quirky folks, eccentric dears, flat-out obsessed individuals, and the really unusual are part of our families, community, our nation and our world. They provide a great deal of material for writing. It’s the skill of a writer to gather this material and rework it into a good tale. Names changed, situations camouflaged, details intact these stories are either interesting, defeating, disturbing, sad or uplifting. Sometimes a gentle touch is needed. Sometimes a little understanding is in order. Often a sense of humour helps it all go down.
Not that anyone comes to mind at the moment.

Hi Aunt A.E.O.F,
More like, who DOESN’T come to mind…we are all so wacka-doodle. I think once a person admits they are a bit wacky, the wacka-doodleness can be appreciated in other people. Therefore, we should all embrace the weirdness of us. Yay for wacka-doodles! (Yes, you are a wacka-doodle too, in a good way)
You are so right about these wacko people being great fodder for stories. I am sure you will come up with some great stuff. Do share bits and pieces pleeeeze. 🙂
Completly agree, nice blog and im glad you like the Tonttu-Ukko or Tomte.. i think they are very interesting, maybe some of them remind you of someone you know
