Are we entertaining ourselves to death? The constant need for diversion, much of it lacking in engaged thought and feeling. Once the entertainment concludes, the only response too often is what's next?
In my work, I want the substance to linger in both heart and head fostering an exploration of positive change. The answers will be your own, prompted by the right questions rising from the story. A thinker's tools are questions.
The Persian poet and Sufi mystic, Rumi, stated: "Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there." Stories that move us to question our steps abound in this field. Where are we going and why? This is the area of the something else for the world is more than we know.
My stories will explore this crossroads of life beyond the bivalent nature of this or that and either or into the depth of the something else. This realm is the Tertium Quid of experience, the third something, and therein lies the expanding path of the journey to know ourselves. *
