Has anyone ever thought about half-breeds in fantasy? Like half-elves? Half-vampires? How these people talk about feeling like they belong in neither world? Maybe it represents how we are not of this world but in the world. We are both soul and body. We talked about in my Global Perspectives class in college about being in a culture and how the most a person can be in two cultures is about 75% in each of the cultures. One can never really truly belong in one of those cultures. Maybe these stories are showing us how the feeling that we don’t belong is normal.

Or maybe I am just over thinking things.
