“As in the novels of Joyce, so in those of Mann, the key to the progression lies in the stress on what is inward… I can feel that I’m in the Grail Castle when I’m living with people I love, doing what I love. I get that sense of being fulfilled. But, by god, it doesn’t take much to make me feel I’ve lost the Castle, it’s gone. One way to lose the Grail is to go to a cocktail party. That’s my idea of not being there at all.”

-The mythologist Joseph Campbell

    Introversion is the only way to true happiness, I think. The company of others does soothe the soul, but only when the soul is nourished from adequate self-reflection.

    Thank you for reminding me of this.

    Namaste.

    Loves-me-some Joseph Campbell!

    Sorry to be flip. I do truly love Joseph Campbell’s words. They have helped me find my way, in my own deep, dark forest.

    Bravo Susan,
    Your writing is wonderful! And I am in love with the grail image you’ve posted on this webpage. Do you happen to know the artist’s name?
    Peace,
    Esther
