“There’s a book by an author named Carol S. Pearson from the mid-70s called "The Hero Within: Six Archetypes We Live By”.

Even though it’s nearly forty years old, the book still speaks of the journey each of us takes through our lives:

The Innocent

The Orphan

The Wanderer

The Warrior

The Martyr

The Magician

We float between these identities.

They change as the phases of our lives take center stage, one after the other.

Today I feel like a martyr, but tomorrow I’ll be a warrior.

For even though my time as the magician is drawing to an end, the innocent in me will continue to believe and hope in love and that the goodness of humanity will prevail.“

– Hierophant (Shooter Jennings), "Last Night Radio 11:29 PM” (Narrated by Stephen King)
