Storm XVII

A final thought for the day. Wouldn’t it be cool if the man on the left of the “Storm” / “The Aviator’s Dream” painting grew wings and became a contemporary Daedalus accompanying his falling son? The more I read about him the more I like his story.

    I believe it was J.Campbell who remarked that myths are the Daedalus-wings, that allow us to fly out of the labyrinthine pain of our own narrowness and to know the myths of your culture is essential to knowing the path out of the wasteland. The Aviator’s Dream painting is so beautifully complex and so much your own myth. Can’t wait to see it in person.
