Journey into Greek Mythology

IMG_4615I’ve loved Greek Mythology since I first discovered it in childhood, courtesy of the big orange-colored book you see here at the center of this photo: d’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths.

It’s an endlessly fascinating body of lore, bursting with complex characters, gripping plot-lines, profound symbolism, fabulous creatures, and colorful settings.  I love other bodies of mythology, as well, but I’ll never tire of the Greek tales.  It’s been a while, though, since I really steeped myself in this reservoir of classic, archetypal imagery.

After I polish off the Bhagavad Gita, then, I’ve decided to schedule a reading/studying phase for myself that’s very, very intensely focused on Greek Mythology. I’ve been there plenty of times before, but it’s time to revisit, and in a big way. In fact, this time, I’m planning to dive into it so deeply that I’ll need Poseidon’s help to swim back up and make it to shore…
