Can't stand this word... when I read it, when I hear it... it's so fake; like when it's used, people have no idea what they're talking about.

Favorite Quote:

"Myth is the hidden part of every story, the buried part, the region that is still unexplored because there are as yet no words to enable us to get there...The words alone are not enough; we need a whole series of signs with many meanings, which is to say a rite. My is nourished by silence as well as by words."
