Quote of the Day

The truth concealed from the priest and revealed to the warrior: that this world always was and is and shall be ever-living fire. Revealed to the lover, too: every lover is a warrior; love is all fire.
--Norman O. Brown

Two dear and fiery souls have left the planet in the last week. The first is Dorothy Heron, native to this county, a rancher, deeply devoted wife, mother, friend and fiercely independent and hard-working woman. The other is Dr. James Hillman, brilliant father of archetypal psychology, author, lecturer, Jungian analyst and mentor. Both, in their own remarkably diverse ways, lived the fire of passion, doing and loving. The world is blessed by their all-too-brief sojourns and diminished by their passing.
