Spiraling down the rabbit hole
I am reading this book, and it is changing my world, or at least the way I perceive it.

I am dizzy with it. Seriously, I can barely see.

Thank heavens it's hardcover. I don't think its pages would last long otherwise.

I could put a hundred quotes right here, right now. But my mind is too full of their wonder to choose them.

I'm surprised I'd forgotten so much.

I'm surprised I'd closed my eyes to so much.

I'm overwhelmed, and tempted to start over again at the beginning.

Notes to self: appreciate the symbolism of DragonLdy, Ligerish, and Little Miss Ldy Girl re: Zarathustra, and the great humour of the story of the small loaded present being revealed in the small loaded present, K? Because Life is getting funnier and funnier, and you do not want to miss a single joke :)

I'm feeling all kinds of: of pirates and poets and Ps

I got the same feeling when I read Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator.

OMG! Could you imagine the possibilities if you really had one of those. GEEEPERS!

Though I'm not a huge fan of Joseph Campbell, I did like his theories on the myth. The whole cycle that he sets out for stories are great ways to pick apart movies.

Very true indeed :)

Or pretty much any form of story. My life changed completely after stumbling across The Power of Myth and I've since read every book and hunted down virtually every article of Joseph Campbell's that I could find. Any wonder that I ended up in Sarah Lawrence, where he taught until he died?

Returning to the call,
Emily

I love Joseph Campbell. He's a modern shaman, trying to show us the way back to our own souls.

Ah Carly,

You have such a genuine and truly sweet heart. I so often treated to the warm expressions you show others and, for that, I am fortunate. So I want to wish you a better birthday, More strength, More happiness, More streets to cross not alone, and most importantly More LOVE :)

Michael
