    And I know just how good that novel is. But, as your husband, will I be believed..?

    Roz, Out of curiosity, can you give us your novel’s first line? Yes, this is a shameless request for a teaser! 😀

      Ooh, Sally, how could I resist? First para…

      Within the soundproofed walls, the candles knew the truth. This wasn’t nirvana. It was a building in the grimy backlands of Clapham Junction station. In the yoga studio all was hushed, but the candle flames stirred to agitated vibration as a train passed. Delicate instruments, shivering to an influence none of us could hear or feel.

      Hello, Bright Old Oak – thanks! How funny that you wrote about reincarnation on your blog today, just as I’m exploring such concepts in my novel.
      I don’t, actually, believe in reincarnation. I’ve spent my whole life making up entire worlds, knowing exactly where they came from and knowing how to make other people believe them.
      But that doesn’t mean I don’t see the phenomenon of reincarnation as a wonder. Certainly it is. It is an unlocking of the imagination, the 90 percent of our incredible brains that we can’t explain, that lies unused and gives us immense capacities for art, music, love, endeavours like going to the moon, harming each other (unfortunately), healing each other.
      Reincarnation is one of the ways we try to understand this unkillable sense that we all contain something far more than what is already explained. However we celebrate it, it is worth celebrating.

    The “90% of the brain that’s unused” is another myth, actually. But you’re right that it is complex (the most complex structure in the universe, that we know of) and imagination leaves plenty of space for wonder.

      Another myth? Ho ho. I’m gullible as they come… but delighted to be.

Your turn!
