The family of Soul…
Me: Society’s definition of humanness
Soul: Spiritual core
Ghost: Emotions of Soul
Melody: Translator of Soul
Forest of the Naked Slate: A state of mind. In search of love for self
This collection of parables is the result of my life’s journey to meet my Soul. It begins during childhood with two imaginary friends…Melody: a chickadee… and Freedom: a donkey.
The parables lead to a journey into the Forest of the Naked Slate. It is here that Me is confronted by society, and its definition of who she is supposed to be. Here… she must fill her Naked Slate. She must choose between society’s definition of who she is, and what her discovery of self… tells her… she must be.
This story is my life’s work in progress. These parables are slow to create… difficult to find the correct words, to convey such elusive emotion. Much of “My Ghost in Me” still needs to be written. The concepts so clear in my mind… yet the words to describe the emotional content of each discovery…very difficult to convey.
