    Where would you go?

    Ireland is my first choice (2013 here I come!) I could possibly stay there and never come back...seriously the fairies can take me away! Japan is my second choice.

    Siouxsie and pan's labyrinth

    I absolutely love that movie. I think Guillmerro del Toro is pure genius. There are so many stories that tie into mythology or stories the top of my head I think of Led Zepplin's Stairway to Heaven(The Pied piper and the May queen) Breathe by Pink floyd has a verse about the rabbit...

    I think, Chintai, that is the glamourus effect of the mind being able to tell such bizarre stories. People are memorized :-)

    What's your favorite symbol associated with mythology?

    I thought it meant blue blooded because they were so pale? Kind of like how William Wallace painted himself blue in battle. Where r u getting the red reference? I wonder if I'm completely mistaken.

    Favorite poetry

    William Blake and Edgar Allen Poe are my favorite. I can't help but read anything by Robert Frost, he is amazing, and I like Sylvia Plath. I can recite "Nothing Gold Can Stay" from memory. That poem totally burned into my mind after I read"The Outsiders"

    What's your favorite symbol associated with mythology?

    I have not seen her Encyclopedia, however, I have a HUGE symbol encyclopedia that has symbols and secret signs. Love it. I will look hers up online. I just recently started to get into Sanskrit, I had to look up the Aum symbol but recognized it right away. Awesome! I also love celtic knotwork...
