"What I'm Reading" - Plus the 2016 Resolution to *Read More*

Happy 2016, everyone!

Honestly, everyone I talk with on the subject exudes possitivity about this year, and it's fantastic. Everyone's excited, and in a good way, including yours truly!

Let's kick off with resolutions and literature, both excellently tempting brain-gear turners.

On my bedside window ledge I have now five books that have since piled up neatly as the initial 'to do' list of reading material. They are:

Beowulf, as translated by Seamus Heaney:

Cuchulain of Muirthemne, by Lady Gregory:

The Corpus Hermetica, attributed to Hermes Trismestigustus:

Memories, Dreams, Reflections, by Carl Jung:

And lastly, so far:

The Book On The Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are, by Alan Watts:

The Corpus Hermetica is very thin, but heavy to ponder and consider, in some ways, and it reads like an ancient play dialogue.

The Book, by Watts, is a speedy, light little read, all on good philosophical stuff. Just lovely.

Beowulf is a classic, so if you haven't read that, try it out soon.
And Lady Gregory was one of the great authors and collectors of Celtic myth and legend, some might say history.
And we all know Jung. Right? Please say yes. Or go read some of his stuff, if only for your thinker.

That's the lot, as it stands!

This year is already loaded, and it feels thoroughly great. So attending diligently to my 'resolution' of sorts to read more regularly is going to be a trick of it's own!

What's your resolution for 2016?

Be well!
