I believe we live in a world today that is directly shaped by the events my parents witnessed. I do not think that the brutal demons of war raging then in the hearts of humanity were utterly vanquished. They still are present today and gather their forces together for another great conflagration. Its fires are being fanned even now as I write this entry.
I think they were waiting to be moved by the hand of inspiration, by the sweat of dreams and by the birth of wonder. They needed the touch of a prescient or farseeing storyteller, one who could stare into the future, peer into the past and write as if both were in the present . . .
