As a part of the natural world we must deal constantly with cycles of life and death. Several of today's stories in Earthy Thursday deal with these and related themes, as well as what sits just beyond our everyday human experience.

At The Wild Hunt, Cara Schulz discusses how life leads inevitably to death... which in turn leads to more life. All a part of nature.

Is fog the secret to redwoods' incredible size and growth? According to this article from The New York Times it may well be.

Roadways are well-known for being a hazard to local wildlife. Is there a way to make them safer? The Huffington Post looks at one possible solution.

Speaking of solutions can indigenous cultures teach us how to confront climate change? yes! Magazine has the details.

Lastly, what are the roots of Iceland's widespread belief in elves? Carolyn Emerick looks into the distinctive Scandinavian folk belief.

Aryós Héngwis (or the more modest Héngwis for short) is a native of the Pontic-Caspian steppe, born some 5000 years ago, near the village of Dereivka. In his youth he stood out from the other snakes for his love of learning and culture, eventually coming into the service of the local reǵs before moving westward toward Europe. Most recently, Aryós Héngwis left his home to pursue a new life in America, where he has come under the employ of BBI Media as an internet watchdog (or watchsnake, if you will), ever poised to strike the unwary troll.
