You're Not in Kansas Anymore, Doc!

"oh, i survived this crazy ski trip," he wrote her.
"i mean CRAZY, even for me!"

"how so?" she replied curiously.

"well, i was in the outback of montana
trying to survive this ski trip and its attendees.
as best as i could figure,
either their drinking club has a skiing problem OR
their ski club has a drinking problem.
"the lines were very, very blurred!"

he paused and then added,
"oh, and did i mention cleavage like a train wreck?"

"wow. some trip!" she typed back.
"it sounds more like a reality tv show
which could be aptly called
'doc in the woods:
surviving the great outdoors and the people who live there.'

"i just hope you have all your shots," she finished with a wry grin.

I couldn't help but notice and delight in your interest in reiki, joseph campbell and carl jung! Most excellent! I just read "The Hero with a Thousand Faces"

hi, yoyeti! i've been a reiki practicioner for a few years now and love the work that it brings. and, joseph campbell and carl jung have been constant companions the past several months...as if i *needed* to read them to make sense of my own internal shifts. in reading their words, my own life experience felt validated and i felt in the company of kindred spirits. have you read jung's autobiography yet? what did you think of "hero"?
