I don’t remember how it came about, but Dan and I recently started watching the PBS series The Power of Myth; we borrowed it through our town library.
During the series of interviews recorded in 1987, Joseph Campbell, a mythologist, comments that it’s important for everyone to have a sanctuary — even if it is just in the form of quiet time one sets aside for them self each day. I figure that Campbell’s comment is even more relevant today given our accelerated pace of life.
Upon hearing Campbell’s comment, I suggested to Dan that he spend more time in our Camp — I know he considers it his sanctuary. Dan responded that it no longer feels like a sanctuary for him; it has been disrupted for such a long time due to construction and landscaping, and neglected so far this summer. I realized this was something I could remedy.
During the past few days I trimmed, weeded, tidied, and cleaned the Camp back to its former glory. This included removing logs I had stored at the Camp…
