the book More to Come
This book is
written in love, so much love. Love from the past, future and present.
It is a gift to people who long for a better way. A way out of the
havoc and destruction of industrial civilization. It is painting
a picture of what could be possible for human life on the planet
are the ones. We can do it! Imagine peace
This is a book
about the future. It is about the possibility of something different
and much better than what we have now. It is the book I would have
liked to read but couldn't find anything like it.
I like to believe in
a future where things get better and human beings become all that
we can be.
The inspiration for this
book came in May of 2010 with the birth of Zariah, daughter of my
daughter. At that time I was filled with thoughts and feelings about
generations before and those yet to come. I thought about how Zariah’s
life would be, and how it would be for her when she looked into
the eyes of her own grandchild. What would the nature of life be
like for this grandchild of my grandchild.
The book offers
travel through time. It takes the reader into another time, offering
rich detail about many aspects of this proposed future. It is told
through the voice of the person living in the time of the telling.
So each chapter starts by revealing whose voice is in the chapter.
In Chapter 4, the storytelling shifts back and forth from me, the
author in 2011 to Juan, a man from the future explaining things.
lives in SW Michigan and is actively building her space of
love for kith and kin. That means she spends a lot of time
gardening and creating a permaculture based edible forest
garden also known as Food Forest. She loves building dreams,
ideas, promises, and all things that help people live a better
life. Curious about most things, she likes to study and formulate
possibilities. She likes to write and has completed other
books and poems. She also plays the flute and has been known
to sing and dance. In 2011 she built a solar heated greenhouse,
something she has long dreamed into reality. Last year 2013,
she built a nice little wood shed, all by herself. Go Grannie!
