James Hillman, April 12, 1926 – October 27, 2011

We mourn the death of James Hillman, a great psychoanalyst and poet, a source of inspiration, a fountain of creativity and with his sword constantly drawn to challenge conventions.

"Death is the only complete necessity, that archetypal Necessity who rules the pattern of the life line she spins with her daughters, the Fates. The length of that line and its irreversible one-way direction is part of one and the same pattern, and it could not be otherwise."
James Hillman, The Soul's Code

Succinct and marvelous. The Underworld reclaims its champion.
