Re: Thank you!

Even I don't always spot everything, though I try. Sometimes I am surprised by what people can read between the lines. I once had someone figure out Persian as one of the influences behind something I'd written -- and it was from Penumbra, which means the description was nearly nil.

It helps to read and explore widely. The more different worldviews you've seen, the easier it becomes to step outside your own so that you can see the shape of it more clearly. Then you know where its shadow falls while you are writing.
