In book one, Virginia Simms is an earnest, idealistic, young woman devoted to her graduate studies in political science. While putting on an important conference, she meets her academic hero, Professor Fredrick Grange, who sweeps her off her feet. Her desire for a fulfilling intellectual partnership takes her across the sea to Geneva, Switzerland. When Fredrick becomes overly obsessed with his work, growing more cold and distant, his research assistant, the dashing Ben Warren, shows Ginny the town and slowly what it means to truly love and desire. Ginny joins Ben in exploring the sensual practice of Tantra and awakens her body and heart. Through their intense emotional and physical chemistry, she reaches new heights. On this unexpected journey, Ginny finds there is more to a meaningful life than work and good deeds. This is a romantic, erotic tale for the intellectually and existentially curious, a moving and sweet story of awakening.
Not flaws. adornments. The word finally came to me. To me the imperfections are, in fact, adornments. I look for the adornments such as wrinkles or messy morning hair or scars in my characters and my writing indulges in them. They shape my characters.
There is a Keith Richards documentary that details his softer, more poetic side. His face is so intense and wrinkled, like the way water digs out a canyon. His face tells an amazing story. And when he smiles, you can see clearly that a lot of the wrinkles are from a place of child-like wonderment. It's a full-faced smile.
To me one of the privileges of love is the deep study and appreciation of the adornments that make us rare, not pretty but rare. What's pretty about the Earth are it's canyons, valley, craters, mountains, etc... It's dramatic features and unique spots. To me, people are the same. The more adornments, the more there is to love.
