"From Particles and Disputations" is a collection of literary artifacts in the form of creative writings from a twelve year period in my life with which the reader engages to construct an intelligently told love story with a sad but transcendent ending. From our meeting in 1982 until my partner’s death from AIDS in 1994 I marked each birthday, anniversary, holiday, and other special or difficult occasion we shared with a piece of writing – sometimes prose, sometimes poetry – chronicling and reflecting upon the event. These were intimate writings composed solely for the purpose of expressing myself to one other person. Following my partner’s death I collected these writings into a “book of hours” which I entitled "From Particles and Disputations."
I believe these writings have something important to add to a much needed conversation in our society about what constitutes morality. I believe that morality is the process of establishing, protecting, and enriching the trustworthiness of our relationships with ourselves, our sense of deity, and the world in which we live. For most of us, the first and foremost ripple of our morality finds its expression is in our relationship with a mate. The trust we give to another individual to share and protect our person and our property, those most basic aspects of our being, is what renders these relationships sacred. I trust readers will find that the significance of this book is in the emotional power of the real-life story that the writings reflect and in real-life themes they engage.
