The vel is fiction, but t because it deals with the freedom to love, to live, to choose, to cherish, to heal, to reach beyond the marriage boundary to enrich the bond; always courageously seeking greater experiences of happiness, liberty, peace and joy in the world. The vel deals with the momentous 'sea' changes in the political world that we set our hopes on with a glimpse of a new world of universal love that is hard to achieve and to hold on to. Too often, on this stage, we find that we have built on sand. But should we t have built at all? Honest sparks of love keep us going, even unrequited, as they remain love nevertheless. With them a gentle constancy unfolds amidst the tides of the ever-changing 'seas.' In time the initial sparks become a light, with which we patiently labor on. And labor we must, in order to discover what is worth holding on to. At the portal to the land of universal love tourist information booth is erected that offers maps with shortcuts. Nothing is given for free. All must be won. This, also makes the journey more precious, even as we stumble and fall and pick ourselves up. Surprisingly, with the struggling, our world becomes brighter, and we find a greater brightness within.
