we need stories in our life. they connect us to mother earth.
because we are aliens on this planet, strangers to its nature, a pest gone out of control for its ecosystems, a legacy as much as a burden... but he equally are participants, engaged in its struggles, deeply involved in its history and depending on its resources.
we are fledglings of a mother who doesn't care, who has not even forgotten about us, but has never acknowledged our existence. yet, we DO care. we have to; it's the only place we have where we can thrive and prosper; or die and diminish.
and we need stories, legends, symbols and signs to feel home. safe. passionately touched. responsible for it - our land, our gravity well, our first stand - and maybe last.

Isn't that what mythology is?
We have a rich panoramic past which few men are able to acknowledge, Joseph Campbell was such a man - often described as a man with a thousand stories.
Man is rarely interested in the literature of the spirit, today it's the news of the day and the problems of the hour.
The one thing about growing old is the return to the inner life - and I thank the powers that be, I know where to find it - many don't who will remain lost.
Thanks for a photo so full of the inner life - I like it because it will touch your soul if you allow it to...
