Fairy Dust

I tend not to read much fantasy unless it is mythological fantasy..bringing the ancient stories into the modern world fascinates me.  And it is in those imaginary worlds, those mythological spots in the universe, that I find the 'dust' of everyday life washed away.  Without meaning to create metaphors the myths utter the greatest of all statements about what 'real' life means.  Do you agree or disagree with me? Thrones...Wizard of Earthsea...Cloud Atlas... The Odyssey...all give me pause and joy as I come to understand that there is another human being out there, a writer, who sees the world the same way I do!
