Sinopse

I wrote Crossroads to explore the sociological thesis that ‘language-ideas’ and the material body are mutually constitutive. How? Where are the interfaces between cognitive and bodily systems? Grounded in and individuated from modern and postmodern academic theory, I believe these verses will be of interest to anyone involved in the quest for self-discovery and the notion of ‘spirit.’ My poems are a mix of social theory, imagination, dream experiences, waking ‘realities,’ and ‘memories’. I cannot always distinguish among these states. This poetry almost wrote itself in an exhilarating ‘stream of consciousness’—very different from my usual laborious method of writing academic papers. I hope this book is interpreted in as many ways as there are readers. My goal is to encourage people to self-actualize. Everything we do or don’t do matters. We must see through the maze of propaganda. Education and empathic interconnection are the tools for our survival. A truly democratic society would provide for all citizens to access continuous opportunities for education, including those of us with learning deficits and disorders. Our greatest work of art is our life—body, mind, and soul. About the author Linda Gorosh is 61; she lives in Nanaimo, British Columbia. A mother of three with three grandchildren, she describes herself as “a late bloomer.” With cognitive and physical disabilities, her focus is on education, formal and otherwise.
