How do you explain to the old writer or man or woman, that when he was a young man or woman he was just as good a writer or person that he or she is now. What he (generically) was timeless and beautiful and grand and bold, etc. etc., yet it was most appropriate to the audience of that age group as well?
What I have written as an older man may indeed be better crafted, richer in life experience, zest, and power, yet what i was wrote as a young was also full of talent, zest, and power. Yet, more than anything else if was filled with a DESIRE TO KNOW, TO LOVE, TO EMBRACE and EXPERIENCE All of this strange, dynamic, and sometimes subtle world of ours, this THING called Life.
This book was my first, my first bold step onto the planet called Earth. And as such, of course, holds a dear place in my heart. It meant so much to me at the time (1986-1990) that I would have rather wrote in/on it than almost anything else.
And I strongly believe it DOES hold talent, craft, wisdom, poignancy, and joy. It is a Vision of Optimism and Love. The Vision of Optimism and Love, out of which has evolved ALL of my current writing.
I pray you enjoy it.
It really was written for YOU, not in the general, but the Specific.
Peace and Eternal Bliss, Love, and Grace to You and Yours.
