When the editor at Freisen Press reviewed my book A Braided Cord, among other things he said was the writing was strong, but the subjects were peculiar. Now peculiar is an interesting word. It can mean outside of the current "spirit of the age" I guess, but he didn't say " peculiar to" which means a reflection of authenticity of the author's singular way of looking at things. Since he didn't know me he couldn't say that, so I am stuck with "odd man out". My cousin, who is reading it, says she and I are differently wired from many. Thank goodness for that! Perhaps all we can say in our defense is, "We have a clear perception of our own point of view." The book has a strong pull to duality of thought my cousin claimed like Richard Rohr and I see in the writing and methods of Jung. These have certainly seemed to me to be fellow travelers.
