Hi Barque, thanks for your response :) Thanks for the suggestion to use Ning, but since we had already started our blog we'll just go with it. We also have considered to open up comments on the blog to those we are more close to, soon, we'll send you an invitation to comment or post.....on our blog. Please feel free to do so! Again, thank you! :)

Hi Rita and Gary,
Thanks for this background. You have the option to create a blog on the Thomas Moore Ning Network if you want ;-). I'm happy that you found each other through the network. I tried to leave this message on your blog, however I don't think it recognized me as a "team member." May you continue to contribute as we rebuild the Thomas Moore network. What a great story! Barque

Welcome back Barque, Gary and everyone else! Gary and I are very happy with the return of Barque Ning Forum, not only because we appreciate so much Thomas Moore, but because Barque Forum at Ning really changed our lives...Well, although we want to share our story with you, we don't want to overcrowd the forum with it. So, I had the idea of creating a blog to tell our story - We've just started it and we hope, with it, leave one more sparkle of soul and love, shining on the web :)

Yeah! Now three of us. Thank you Ian for checking in. Perhaps Moore meant that Hillman didn't use the word to describe individual and specific occurrences that suggested a one to one correlation. I'm not speaking for him. This example is much broader to me, more sweeping in that soul history is not dependent on specific ego needs of a person. I was shaken by Suicide and the Soul. I also find Hillman's The Dream and the Underworld compelling.

I'm glad we're back too - I never have quite understood Facebook.

A tiny quibble/comment on Tom's recent blog, as an excuse to mention my current favourite book: the word 'projection' is used by Hillman at least once in Chapter 5 of Suicide and the Soul, e.g. "Soul history emerges as one sheds case history, or, in other words, as one dies to the world as an arena of projection." (p79)

I've not ever read that much of Hillman, and have only read half of Suicide and the Soul, but am finding his discussion of  the soul of death experiences and the value of conscious dying compelling and fascinating.

Hi Gary, Thanks for responding! I'm afraid it's going to be a bit lonely (at least for awhile) because no one else has checked in. Maybe we can get the others to return. I hope you're checking the Barque blog for Thomas Moore news. You may enjoy his most recent blog post at Cheers, Barque
