Blogs are plentiful these days and I so appreciate that anyone would spend time reading my ramblings when there’s so much available on the net.
Ptero9 is a screen name I chose back in the mid-90’s after purchasing my first personal computer and began participating in lively discussions in the AOL Philosophy group. I call this blog The Ptero Card in hopes that the pronunciation of Ptero would more obviously resemble the greek prefix for wingedness, as in pterodactyl. So, you don’t have to pronounce the “P,” unless you never heard of a pterodactyl and like to say puh-teronine. 🙂
My earlier posts tend to be a bit more autobiographical, as I recall the most influential ideas, writers and transformational periods of my life. You will notice that I am huge fan of James Hillman, and you’ll get no apologies from me for that. No matter the subject, I remain a contrarian by nature, happy to challenge anyone’s assumptions, including my own.
The first thirty something years of my life were spent on Long Island, a place that remains near and dear to my heart. Currently, home is the Pacific Northwest where I live with my husband and our four cats. I am blessed with many friends, a family who loves me, and a wonderful job working at a Monastery.
Thank you for stopping by!
