THE HERO'S JOURNEY: WHERE DO I BEGIN?
Before the journey, ask the question...“Where do I begin?”
And watch a tangle of images and allegories come rolling forth:
Overripe and fading fruit,
a house plant that needs re-potting,
a spinning wheel,
symbols of wisdom, spirits,
and ancient connections.
I don’t know where they leave off and I begin.
I don’t know if I am creating or leaving me,
I only know that I am dressed and ready...
