I've been terribly remiss in not mentioning before that I'll be on the radio talking about myth today -- at station KWMR out of Pt. Reyes, California (90.5 FM), 11 a.m. California time. If you're not in northern California, you can also hear the interview online through the station's website.
The painting to the right is by mythic artist Mark Wagner, who hails (like me) from Pennsylvania but now lives and works in northern California. Visit his Hearts and Bones Studio to see more of his magical art.
