This was taken May 3 2017… I figured pay phones are not going to be around much longer… so wanted to chronicle them as part of our ever changing history…
I’ve owned this book for some time but it’s been sitting in my basement, highly respected and largely ignored. I hoped I’d get to it some day. Finally, after years of letting it just sit there, I cracked the cover. Amazing book. Really good. At least, right for me… right now.
The author mentions other luminaries in the field yet resists the temptation, which many bigger names did not, of spelling out some grand mythological theory. So in this sense she’s incredibly contemporary for 1964 (the publication date).
Grand theory is generally “out” these days, I think it’s safe to say. H. R. Ellis Davidson seems quite content to just discuss the evidence without overlaying her own imaginative framework. And that’s what makes this charming and informed work a true classic.
Highly recommended for anyone wanting to go a little deeper into the topic.
At the Eaton Centre last Wednesday before lunchtime… it was a rainy day and all the stores were pretty empty, until I walked past this iCloud demo. Afterward I realized that watches, jewellery, food, drink and clothes don’t turn people on half as much as the latest high-tech trinkets. That’s where the action is. And I guess that’s just part of human evolution…

You know, as a practising Christian I try hard not to judge others.
But there’s always the reality of people who are not sane and really quite bent on evil.
If you think I’m being xtreme, just take a look at this document. It’s a letter of agreement signed by Adolf Hitler and the British PM Neville Chamberlain.
And we know what Hitler did shortly after.
As Bob Dylan put it:

I was browsing through A Critical Dictionary of Jungian Analysis and came across an interesting passage that got me thinking…
Jung’s main theoretical contribution to group psychology lies in his claim that it is the influence of insufficiently integrated archetypal tendencies that leads to mass phenomena such as fascism.
And that really is the bottom line.
A great leader weighs all the options and acts with his or her mind connected to the heart. But a tyrant doesn’t give a damn because he or she’s in the grip of some strange power beyond themselves, a power that Jung called an ‘archetypal influence.’
In short, the one is in control, whereas the other is controlled and wants to pass that lack of personal autonomy onto others… sort of like a disease.
Speaking of diseases, I wrote a poem called “The Disease” a long time ago, several years before 9/11. It was this kind of thing that I was alluding to.
Likewise, Greek mythology begins with one question and one question only: Who has more fun in bed, men or women?”
