“…We are living in an era in which billions of people are grappling to promote communication, tolerance, and understanding over the more destructive forces of war, terrorism, and political chaos that have characterized the beginning of the 21st Century.” ––from Introduction to Journey through the Power of the Rainbow
Well, we did exactly that, including producing a section devoted to original writings on spiritual and philosophical interpretations of rainbows. For their assistance I thank the tech angels as well as readers who shared suggestions via email. It’s true that I came close to giving up on the project but you can probably guess what some of the reasons were that caused me to stick with it. Among them is the tremendous pleasure that I and many others experience when seeing the quotes used in legitimate, inspiring, and beautiful ways.
And, believe it or not, the most important reason for me personally was not to confirm the origins of the material in order to discourage the illegal commercial use of it (although that is a biggie). The most important reason for me was to deliver as promised because quite a few students, educators, fellow authors, adored readers, and various institutions and social media sites started referencing the book shortly after learning about it. I had no way of knowing that was going to happen, but seeing that it did I’m inclined to do my best to get the book published as early in 2014 as possible.
The new proposed cover for the title, which may or may not be the last version that you see, is shared here as a token of my commitment to the project. Thank you for helping to keep it going.
