I Become a Part of It: The Mythology of Earth
The earth thinks in myths. Myth is a drum by which we can speak, by which we can be heard. Stories are our best guide to how to live on this earth in harmony with the forces of fire and air, wrestling and groaning and singing our way into the pattern that includes lichen and lions, otters and salamanders and the print of a leaf on a bone left in the soil. The following myths are a way in, a door, each a door into the restlessness that includes you and is gamble and hawkfish, bramble and wild lunge at a possible life for those to come thirteen generations ahead when water is earth and earth is water. Open the door. Come in.
