Hi, Susan,

I couldn't agree more about J. K. Rowling. There is a good reason Harry Potter has so many fans. These are more than just books. They explore deep archetypes within each of us. J. K. is obviously "in the zone" and in touch with things beyond herself when she's writing. Also, Harry's struggle goes along with your vision of The Inner Samurai. He's been trying to get rid of his own "noise" so that he can operate from that clear, strong place inside him. Long live Harry Potter!

The Original Accidental Pren-her

Agreed. J.K. Rowling does explore deep archetypes in her Potter series -- one that comes to mind is the Hero's Journey. We really see the second and third stages of the journey played out in book 7.

So, too, the similarities between Harry learning how to block out Voldemort so he can turn into himself and take right action from his Inner Samurai place, are spot on! Thanks for that insight and your sharing!

Verna Wilder

I love these books and I love JK Rowling. I am so grateful to her for writing them, for honoring her vision. The books are (and Rowling is), as Ron Weasley would say, "Brilliant!"

Thank you for including the bio clip from A&E.

The Original Accidental Pren-her

I like what you had to say about honoring her vision, Verna. I think that's a very important thing for all women to do, and to be reminded of doing so by such brilliant examples as J.K. Rowling. Thanks for stopping by!
