Monday January 10, 2011 Even if Lauren was diseased and had to remain home, work was still due, this particular Monday being THE Very Last Day Possible for certain things to be turned-in so, I drove her work to the office 'cause that just the kind of mom I am.

Tuesday January 11, 2011 this is the state-of-the-art break room at Barnes&Noble ;)) I may have gotten a little desperate for images this past week. While those are my chips & candy on the table, that is, sadly, not my very cool bike.

Wednesday January 12, 2011 I finished my Great Courses's course, 'Building Better Sentences' and am now watching 'Joseph Campbell: Mythos I: The Shaping of Our Mythic Tradition', a 5 part, 6 hour DVD. I found Campbell when I was very young, was immediately drawn to him, influenced...challenged...enlightened by him and what he brought to me then remains with me even now as this later-in-life lecture tour series has so eloquently reminded me.

Thursday January 13, 2011 Dropping Lauren off at school, and yes, that is an RV dropping THEIR kid off. I had to take this quick, as you can see in my mirror, there's another car behind me needing me to get out of their way.

Friday January 14, 2011 We frequent this little manga/ anime store, where this day we purchased the DVD set of 'Ouran Highschool Host Club' in English, whenever we find ourselves across the street at our simultaneously pathetic and charming little mall. The pic came out weird, I think, because of the florescents.

Saturday January 15, 2011 We, that being David, me, Lauren & Jimmy, drove 'over the hell' to Santa Cruz since both Lauren & Jimmy have applied there, but neither have ever seen the campus. After, we walked along the marina, admiring the boats on our way to 'Johnny's Harborside' for dinner with a water view.

I continue to like the documentation of life chez you. In this batch, my particular favorite is poor Lauren trudging uphill (or so it seems) to school. FanSee

Re: Pics
while not trudging up hill, she is trudging nonetheless since she is still pretty sick and it was a finals day. Thanks for taking a look.

thank you, it's hard to go wrong when shooting a marina, especially one surrounded by green. Glad you liked.

I think any bike is cool. So there.

What does Joseph Campbell speak about?

you missed the operative word and I quote 'that is, sadly, not MY very cool bike.' see? See the difference? Dude rides his very cool bike with his computer slung across his back...at night. Or did you actually mean that ALL bikes are cool so, why am I making the distinction that this bike in particular...wait? What? Never mind, now I'm confused.

Joseph Campbell speaks about mythology, comparative mythology. He believes (I should say believed, he died in 1987) myth provides humans a way of interacting fully with their world, not explaining the how of it, which is the function of science, but instead helping to show the why of it. He believes in an almost universal and underlying global mythology that transcends cultures, geographies, and time, that is then adapted to different cultures and regions over time.

He believes that a relevant mythology is not about the concrete not about resenting itself as actual history, but is about the symbolic, that it doesn't look outward, but leads you inward, into yourself. Obviously, he doesn't truly consider many of our major religions to be any longer relevant.

Now I get to recommend to you. If any of that sounds interesting and you want a fairly quick overview (although it will take you longer than an hour to read) check out

Help any?

Ah, got it. I did miss the operative word. But yes, all bikes are cool because the riders are cool. If you own a bike and ride it you are cool.

He believes in an almost universal and underlying global mythology that transcends cultures, geographies, and time, that is then adapted to different cultures and regions over time.

Where did he grow up? And what kind of parents did he have? I'm always interested in this.

He was born in White Plains, NY, in 1904, to very traditional Roman Catholic parents, whose influence extended throughout his early education. It was reading, really, that brought about his change, that an a very strong need, seemingly, to be as inclusive, and not exclusive, as possible. Do you watch 'Hellcats' for Gale because Campbell was mention during last week eppie? The idea of 'following your bliss' is his.

I do not watch Hellcats except for clips posted on my flist. Did Gale mention him?
