IF theme: Brave

This week I’ve been reading Joseph Campbell’s “The Hero with a Thousand Faces” (an excellent book by the way,) and thinking of all the countless stories where the hero must go out into the unknown and face his demons. I have always liked the story of the Minotaur, and can only imagine the fear that Theseus would have felt wandering through the labyrinth, never knowing when he might round a corner and be faced with the monster. Maybe we all have a sort of minotaur lurking in our subconscious, some sort of fear or demon that we must conquer to be reborn?
