Hometown: Long Island and NYC

I am a Pisces and feared the logo, so I encountered my fear by swimming over to this page & realized being a friend of monsters is wiser than being a "dinner guest" as in the Twilight Zone, To Serve Man. Knowledge will save me someday a la Jason.
Big time...always been a fan. Besides the cautionary tale value for any culture, we can learn how to share and handle fears and risks. Myths, like religion, will keep humanity more at peace than working cable tv or sports franchises
A culture's values are shown by the myths that are allowed to continue. Some myths evolve and others maintain their original shape. Such a wonderful tool we humans have embraced that will help us all collectively and individually to keep us going.
I enjoy myths as there are often truthes behind them. I am writing an historical novel & this will help add some more texture to to my hungry appetite for knowledge here. I am a addicted to art about myths as well (say hello to Titian's Promethius)
The group was smart, polite, clever, and receptive to new ideas where they were all willing to follow a wonderful stream of consciousness type discussion that I thoroughly enjoyed. We all brought slightly different life experiences to the event and that also enhanced the value of the discussion points.
