Here's a link to Amy Julia Becker's blog entry on the transformation of AVATAR's Dr. Grace Augustine. It's a good piece. Amy was reaching out asking for reaction so I set about to comment in the blo's com box, but I couldn't help resist a little elementary instruction about myth to the previous comments. James Campbell and Christopher Vogler write well about myth... oh, yes, almost forget -- there's J.R.R. Tolkein.
