This came out in a magazine recently and speaks of how what we write might touch the lives, souls, and hearts of those far away. Even folks we will never meet, in places we’ve never been.
My niece just asked me to sum up “The Mourning After” in a sentence or two. How’s this?: It’s a moving and mystical tale about a connection so deep, a romance so strong, the lovers have to battle the forces of tragedy and death to stay together.
“The most important aspect of love is not in giving or the receiving: it’s in the being. When I need love from others, or need to give love to others, I’m caught in an unstable situation. Being in love, rather than giving or taking love, is the only thing that provides stability. Being in love means seeing the Beloved all around me.”
