"The author of this story has previously been known for his philosophical work,
""Do From The Octave Of Man Number Four,"" expounding on specific ideas advanced by the
famous Russian prerevolutionary authors, George Gurdjief and P.D. Ouspensky. This story,
however, is a work of fiction mingled with the personal tale of an exalted youthful love
experienced during the time of the author's travels throughout southern Europe.
The transformative experience of an encounter with the ""goddess"" on a solitary road in the
Pyrenees mountains is the seminal event leading to all subsequent experiences. The fateful
encounters with his love are sporadic, but occupy a long period of time encompassing travels
on two continents.
The young woman whom the author befriends has qualities of an intensely focused
aesthetic sensibility combined with a childlike purity and trustfulness of heart.
""This tale is dedicated to the feminine principle absorbed by the male psyche.""
Olivera Sajkovic, editor of ""The New Renaissance"" literary magazine."
