Remembering Joseph Campell

Joseph_Campbell_circa_1982Remembering something from what seems to be from two lifetimes ago… As a young Psychology student in 1982 (and attending a C.G. Jung Society of Montreal – sponsored Joseph Campbell seminar), I exited the auditorium to get a drink, and found myself in front of a vending machine with not quite enough change… Struck up a conversation with the man himself, who bought me a Coke.

He left me with this:

“The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.”
– Joseph Campell

30-odd years later, I think I finally get it.
