AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In this unusual and fascinating book we share a woman's journey - along the canals of Western Europe with her family, through the crests and undertows of self-awareness; then her acceptance of life with cancer, and the ultimate rite of passage.' (Back cover)

Notes

  • Epigraph: O prisons and locks, you are of little concern to me,
    prisons are only for people living in their bodies.
    Those who are riding in the chariots of love's imagination
    and freer than freedom to go anywhere they wish.
    Who is there to stop me from the pursuit of my fancy?
    Checkposts and frontiers are of no avail
    to stop blowing winds and maddened thoughts.
    Lovers know no frontiers. - Nitya Chaitanya Yati, Meditations on the Poems of St John of the Cross.
