|This is a wonderful idea for a community.

Peter Pan Meta
'Lo all. I'm very pleased to see this community exists. Hey there, hi, hallo.|
I wouldn't say I'm so much "into" Peter Pan itself/himself as I am into the greater archetype he springs from, the Puer Aeternus as the Jungians call him. Peter himself is an oft-cited example of the archetype, but he is by no means the only example. How this archetype relates to women (I would be very surprised if most of the members of this community weren't female) is especially interesting to me, because I'm a student of depth psychology with a particular interest in the animus (i.e., Jung's concept of the "inner masculine" in every woman).
I'd like to go on about this a bit, but I don't know how psychologically minded the group is so...perhaps peruse the article, get back to me on this one, then maybe I'll ramble. :}
