missteps…or myth steps?

NM cover - January 13, 2015pm

This post may be appear to be a shameless promotion of a recently published book…

But no!  It’s a graphic representation of the labyrinth—of the small portion I’ve explored, anyway.

I realize it may look like a maze with a number of dead ends—missteps, you might say…

But maybe what seem to be missteps are actually “myth steps”–that is, all part of the learning process.  In any case, I’ve had quite a time in my explorations.

myth steps: the book

In Native American mythology

…the hero goes “North”, after having exhausted all other options on his quest…North is the unknown.

However, as I see it, sometimes you don’t choose North—North chooses you.
