    1. Thank you!

      Many years ago, I watched a series of interviews that Bill Moyer did with Campbell, and he just fascinated me. His intellect and knowledge were stunning, and he seemed to be at so much peace. My book copy of some of those interviews is dog-eared from so many readings.

Thank you for taking the time to leave comments. I enjoy reading them and appreciate them!

After much thought, I've implemented the policy of no anonymous comments. I have been hit by so much spam, and that seems the best way to stop it. I know that stops some of you from being able to easily comment. Please email me if you can't comment. I always want to hear from you!
