What to Take on a Heroic Journey? (Provence Saga Continues)
Posted May 26 2013 9:31pm
In the mythology of a heroic quest, the hero will have to undergo many trials and tests. Usually before the journey begins, the hero is provided with special tools that will aid him or her in completing the trials.
For example, when Perseus went out to slay Medusa, Hermes gave him winged sandals to provide stealth, Hades gave him a cape of invisibility, and Athena gave him her highly polished shield which acted like a mirror to protect him from the deadly gaze of Medusa.
So what godly gifts am I taking on my quest next week?
Well, I've got a Kindle, a cell phone, and a credit card.
