Descrizione del libro

dicembre 2002
This memoir is a man's philosophical journey into the realm of death and the spirit. It not only questions the duty a grandson has to his dying Grandmother, but the meaning of duty to himself and to the world. In this journey, he finds that 'it is love that makes the difference in everything, in every child's mind. For it is love that makes the mind fertile soil, the best possibility for seeds to grow in and to bloom. And most importantly, to bear fruit. This is the hope. This is the future. This is the ephemeral quality that relationships and love can conceive. With this, the meaning of life is clear. With this, one's mark upon the world, upon history, whether individual or as a whole under one labellike one's surnameis the only way in which it can exist, form generation to generation. With this kind of love, one person is all it takes to keep the whole family alive through the generations, to continue its place in the making of human history.'

4.0 su 5 stelle A journey into life and death and everything in between. 17 gennaio 2003
Di J. N. Rodriguez - Pubblicato su
Formato:Copertina rigida
I am the author of this book. With pain and tears I wrote every word in here. After college, returning home to a dying mother, but aspirations for a career were put on hold. Everything I had left, everything that I had not thought about: family, love, culture, religion and the ties of the past, came to the forefront. I had no choice but to face my history dying before me. I questioned everything, all the while holding to my grandmother's hand. I decided to write. Her past, stories I had heard of her, incidents that occurred in the past both funny and dramatic. I decided I had to keep her alive, even if by words only for soon my memory too would die. I wanted to leave behind a piece of work that would keep us all alive. And this is it.
