Love Song of The End of The World

 

The uniqueness of our times must be seen in the recognition that the past

hundred years of human activity have delivered humanity to the brink of

destruction. From this perspective a sense of urgency is bequeathed to the act

of writing. An urgency the consequence of which renders writing closer to

life. To write is to oppose destruction. To write is to reconsider everything about 

life with attention, intensity, care for truth, sweeping desire, and compassion.

The writer fights and opposes the ultimate destruction by the impetuosity

of his willingness to proceed as though his decision to write is a call to arms

and a celebration of the endangered and often dangerous love of life.
