Dragon: Archetypal "Smoke and Mirrors"

Susan Ann Shepler

Abstract


We are layered in history and the energy of dreams. The place we call “everyday” is far from ordinary.  It’s a place of wonder and illusion, chaos, and infinite design.  We are growing familiar with art and soul, symbols, and archetypes.  We are willing to embark on the journey, facing dragons again and again. "We are more than we seem.”  In this place, the modern world is old again; we are kings and queens, and everyone who has ever been!
