The Personal Myth Spread

What if you were the main character in a Myth? Imagine your life story being recast in archetypal form, like you were a figure in some tale out of something like Greek or Norse Mythology, or Egyptian, Aztec, Slavic, Yoruban…you name it. Your life is a hero’s journey… But exactly what tale is it?? 1 … More The Personal Myth Spread

A foot in both worlds…

Straddling borders…standing with one foot in each of two adjacent worlds.  Not an unfamiliar scenario, but one that’s been on my mind this past week as I’ve dealt with the reality of being forced to undergo the jury selection process here in Los Angeles. As you may or may not know, when you’re called for … More A foot in both worlds…

I might be somebody’s peer this week…

A few weeks ago, I posted here in advance of my relocation of residence from one part of Los Angeles to another.  I just wanted to give fair warning at the time that the consistency of my posts might take hits for a day or two, as my life weathered the necessary disruptions that go … More I might be somebody’s peer this week…

Skadi, the Skier…

Not too long ago, I lodged a post here about the (in my humble opinion) under-valued Norse God, Tyr. Even more recently than that, I issued a post that, among other things, spoke about the Rune, Isa, that literally means “Ice,” and which can signify things like delays, blockages, and interference, along with more literal … More Skadi, the Skier…

Deucalion…twice!!

I read a lot of mythology.  I mean…I always did, and I’ve always enjoyed it, but in the last couple of years, I’ve kind of returned to mythology with a vengeance.  And I haven’t just been revisiting the bodies of mythic lore I knew best in childhood (that would be Greek Mythology, followed by Norse … More Deucalion…twice!!

Flight of Icarus

I awoke this morning thinking, for some reason, about Icarus.  My dreams were completely unrelated to the young lad out of Greek mythology, so why he would have been on mind was a mystery to me.  Since mythology is one of the subjects I plan on featuring here regularly, though, it seemed that if nothing … More Flight of Icarus

From out of the jungle of dreams…

Hmm…yet another animal dream last night!  ‘Tis the season?  For me, at least, it seems to be, as a few of my previous, recent posts will illustrate… This time, it was a dream of a lion: However, while the lion may be widely acclaimed as “The King of the Jungle,” the dream did not take … More From out of the jungle of dreams…

“I bring you fire…”

So yesterday I mentioned how two books were responsible for launching me into a worldview that embraces the transmundane.  I talked about the first of those books: Ask Your Guides, by Sonia Choquette.  That blog entry is still fresh — still cooling off, even! — so I don’t want to repeat any of it again … More “I bring you fire…”

Our inner myths…

I think about mythology a lot.  Even with only a few blog posts tacked up here so far onto the vast cyber-bulletin board that is the internet, that should be kind of obvious.  And very often when I say “mythology,” I’m talking about the widely-recognized legends and lore that have blossomed up alongside humanity as … More Our inner myths…
