O knihe

The good fortune of being Nature's recent champions has swollen the human ego. It might also be said that the industrial revolution has moved our species into its rebellious teen years. We have forgotten how to be grateful for the guidance Mother Earth gave us in our childhood. Now certain that we have all the answers, our dominant western ideologies have situated us in an artificial existence. But we need not live disconnected from reality. The tales in Mother's Forgotten Garden have the power to unearth the covered fragments of our fractured human past using a variety of conceptual literary forms and devices. Some of this book's stories have been designed with the scientific and symbolic patterns of Nature in mind (i.e. sine and cosine curves, the yin-yang), while others only level a critical or satirical eye upon some of the oppressive ideologies at play in one of the world's most modern nations: the United States of America. Taken together, this collection gathers unlikely companions as one handful of miscellaneous wild seeds scattered over loose dirt, the forgotten beauty of asymmetric growth. If only we remember how, we can begin to evolve once more.
