mildly overawed

On a LJ friends list, someone mentioned that yesterday was Elias Lonnrot's birthday, collector of the Kalevala. I'd seen a documentary on the Kalevala and the last of the runesingers, so I decided to google on his name.

I'm exhausted just reading it. Linguist! Ethnologist! Doctor! Journalist! Poet!
