Deeper into the rabbit hole...

So I'm a big fan of Joseph and the Hero's Journey, especially in its role in human development beyond just mythology and media. I had to simplify the journey on this page, but I encourage you to check it out in its entirety. Of course some of the points in the journey are missing or in different places depending on who is telling the story.

If this is the first time you've encountered the idea, I encourage you to check out the work of Joseph Campbell, particularly The Hero with a Thousand Faces or The Power of Myth with Bill Moyers.

Love the majestic illustration...feels ethereal. I particularly enjoy Ananzi's smoke words for the hero's journey, as well as the different fonts for Thomas and Ananzi. Thanks for posting the visual on Campbell's work. I watched The Power of Myth in my senior humanities class in high school and it has had a lasting impact on my life, it also makes for great writing! Thanks again! Sometimes I feel a bit alone with the commenting, so those fans out there reading, please feel free to interact with my comments and the story more, as it would bring me great joy as a fan to engage in this more:)! Peace!

The Power of Myth is fantastic, that's cool you're showing it to your students.
