Reply To: The Mythic Image


Dear Mary Ann,

Delighted to hear back from you. Oh worry not about your delayed response. I have had my hands full in a pleasant way too.

I am sorry to hear about the job losses due to pandemic. I think, you’ll soon get back your jobs, or as soon as the schools open.

Ah, how wonderful to have a new larger/better place to live in.  Borrowing words from John O’Donohue:

”And so may a slow
wind work these words
of love around you,
an invisible cloak
to mind your life.”

Too bad that your mom is far away from you now, but maybe you can visit her soon.

Regarding the books: I actually was looking to replace my first editions of the books that I lost in DC, and which I had purchased in DC from an old books book store.  I could not remember the name of the first one, hence, I gave in a few clues, and Stephen got it right away, with the image of the exact book. It was “The Atlas of World Mythology” (hard cover, beautiful illustrations, deep, and intense). The Language of the Goddess by Gimbutas was also  a first edition, and it was Joe’s rich foreward that had grabbed me. I wanted to read that foreward again, without buying Gimbutas’ book, and Stephen said, it was once on the’s book shelves. Anyway, the idea now is, to visit McGill University’s Book Sales, and look for first editions. Or, visit DC and look through the second story book shop again. Here is glimpse of this magnificent store:

How is your family, your daughter, grand daughter, and your life’s partner, (Kenny?)

How is your dream world? My dream world has been on the quiet side these days, but one dream that needs mention is a dream with Joe Campbell:

Scene: It appears that Joe’s fans had arranged sort of a celebration for Joe’s 100th anniversary. Joe was walking into the celebration, and I was walking out, essentially, we were walking in opposite directions?!! Joe looked young fit, and lean, so I thought to myself, “must be the 44 laps at the Manhattan Athletic Club”, and then said, “Good Morning Joe”.  Some dream, short and sweet, and unforgettable!

All else is well. My son is in a good place now (job wise) and daughter is fine too. I visited her in Denver, and enjoyed surveying the city and hiking the Rocky Mountain Trails.

Warm wishes
