The Boy in the Tree Picture

Here is a brief study in my personal mythology. Think of the movies or stories that have made an impression on you for your whole life. The tales that impacted your young mind and forever colored and informed your perception and imagination.

In Boetia, in ancient Greece, Dionysus was called Dendrites – "the one in the tree".

Many of Elizabeth Hand's stories feature this Mythic figure in a myriad of guises. This is one of my impressions.
