Ovid's Metamorphosis always tantalized my younger mind. Not that I knew why then, only it unveiled some dimension of my being as graphic reminder of warring contradiction since earliest childhood. Beyond the biological importance imposed by conventionality of nature, are any of us only the sum of our experience? What does it really mean to be male or female? Is strength greater than weakness? Or is it analogist to quantum forces that exist everywhere in the nature we observe? Within present value, is there any true definition of things superior and things inferior? And just because something is today, does it mean it must always be defined immutable. But do not think I am political, or that I express a position confirming roles of identity. Nor what I express here has anything to do with sex or labels, which ultimately leads to division. Rather, I ask the reader to consider that one has already voiced answer to the religious and to the non-religious corundum, if only this meaning might be received heard.
As stated in Mathew 22, verses 29 and 30, Jesus spoke these words: Jesus answered and said unto them, "You are mistaken, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven." (NKJ)
This collection of short stories I dedicate to all my beloved sisters. For through passage of time all things that are, changed to things that once were. And what is to be wondrous as the dream of a caterpillar to one day ride wind.. Author: L. A. Espriux
