Elise is one of my students at SBI in Norway. She is one of the youngest of the group and only perhaps 16 but Norwegians can start college earlier than Americans. I suppose I have known Elise for almost five years.

Every culture has the archetypes. For instance there is a classic Italian, Mexican face and so forth. When I think of Elise I consider her to be a classic Viking for her age.
