My name is Jonah, and I’m an accountant turned artist behind A Million Suns. I create cyanotype photographs and write about the search for a meaningful life using art and positivity. On this journey, I hope to help and inspire you. I quit my day job in 2019. What door will open? Subscribe to updates.

The Power of Myth: Why It’s More Important than Ever

We need a mythology of inclusion rather than exclusion. Unfortunately, mythology has always worked by excluding others.
This article goes into why that is and how an individual might change the mythology that he lives by. Consider this post a book review focused on mythology as applied to the systemic racism that is evident today.
