this dizzy life is just a hanging tree

it's wednesday, and as the margot lyric goes, wednesday, i hung from a tree.
i don't know whether richard was referencing the fact that wednesday is named after odin and odin famously hung himself upside down from the world tree, before he fell, screaming. i am certain, however, that tori was referencing this in her song when she says "even still the eagle has to land", especially since the entire song is very near to gaiman's american gods which features odin and others "lost in a place called america".

nor am i surprised that proximo made a reference to the recollection of future events ("[i] begin to recall things that you'll say").

and in my tarot for the day, the ninth and ultimate, outcome-oriented card is the hanged man.
