Setting this aside for now...

Moving further along ....

While Moore was taking a myth and 'opening it up' I was fine. He seems to have drifted into other speculative and drier areas, also aspects of personality and personalities which don't concern me. I'm skimming more than reading....

==============================================================================


Think I'm 'getting' this book! Moore is taking the ancient myths and reinterpreting them for us in a new and deeply spiritual way! I LIKE! I LIKE! Now I know why my friend, Jane was so keen to get to read this!!!

Started this long ago... Just pulled it back off the shelf...

rebecca ...and what are your thoughts? It was once recommended to my mom by her brother who is a priest. I did not read it but looked it over and never gave it another thought.

I've only just 'dipped' into it in places but ... it's a gentle book so far ... gentle and loving. Reminds of the friend who recommended it. She is the one I always run to when I need a faith-lift or unconditional human affirmation of God's love for me: encouraging, supportive and full of tips which are good for self-care and specifically caring for one's soul. But let me read some more and I'll see if I can give you anything more concrete. ☺
