Marc found his peace in searching for God. He told himself that on his deathbed, he would be sure to ask God for His forgiveness, and then hope to die immediately, before the nurse walked in, for fear he might have an unclean thought. And God forbid the nurse was male. He certainly wouldn’t survive that one, at least not according to his mother.
Jack’s passion was in music, lyrics, and song. He admitted to writing songs in his head at the age of 8 in order to keep himself entertained during his walks to and from school.
Seeking MO is a series of letters between two friends in their twenties that exist as a record of their experiences as they mature on their journeys of self discovery. It is a casual yet sincere display of truth and trust as they manage the complexities of friendships and lovers, family, and meaningful work while constantly questioning the nature of God, humanity, and societal institutions in the hope of finding their true paths. Enjoy the ride.
