“We all do and think funny things every day, only most of us edit them out of our consciousness—we don’t share some of the most interesting things we think and do. For example, in 1981 I heard that my wife was expecting our third child, and I was suddenly filled with the archetypal need to make money.” John Boe continues with the anecdote of how he came to be teaching English at the University of California at Davis, offering one of many delightful and personal snapshots of his humorous and often revealing approach to living. In these short, witty essays, he slices life along the lines of Jungian psychology applied to such everyday topics as holidays, palmistry, Shakespeare, movies, astrology, and more, while behind the humor is a satisfying glimpse of wisdom and experience.
John Boe is a lecturer at the University of California at Davis, editor of Writing on the Edge, a newsletter about teaching writing, and a frequent contributor to such publications as East Bay Express, Unte Reader, the San Francisco Jung Institute Library Journal, and Psychological Perspectives.
