When it becomes too
hard to speak face to face, though love demands that the dialog
continues, the conversation unfolds in the form of letters and deeds. When an impasse
is centered on deep aspects of the challenge of freedom, a new form
of dialog is required to master the otherwise impossible.
When the challenge is finally met, the result becomes a festival of joy that raises the platform of love to a higher level. It becomes a love festival.
The fictional result
that unfolds in a story set in Russia where a love festival is achieved,
mirrors a similar type of love festival that the American society had staged for itself, a festival of an unfolding love for its humanity that
became expressed in the Apollo Moon Landing Project, a project that had inspired the world with an
uplifted sense of love for its own universal humanity. The Apollo project may some day be called America's greatest demonstration of human freedom in modern time.
