Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis is a series of personal essays that explore themes of fundamentalism, family, loss, personal growth and the question of free will. The work reflects my study of the written word, of language, and of how people have tried to define, or have experienced, the numinous. The essays are roughly chronological and span a period of five decades, beginning in early childhood and ending in the present. Using a conversational and sometimes colloquial style, I have drawn on my own experiences to speak to the concerns of anyone who has had a difficult childhood. I conclude, implicitly, that it is through a series of choices and conscious decisions that it's possible to give a different experience to one's own child something better, to give something better. I also make the case that loss can be a teacher and that different losses at different times in life can either maim or heal.
