From the Foreword by the Author:

The words collected here were written because they were a necessity at the time. For each occasion, they fulfilled a specific and sometime different purpose: reflect on a relationship, engage in a new one, or mourn a lost one. Sometime the necessity was a duty toward those who were left behind, or a sharing of a happy or sad experience, or trying to master and anticipate those experiences. Relationships are at the core of those writings. The relationships could be at the individual level, familial, communal, or at a national level or even broader. They could also involve multiple levels. Over many years, those writings were stored as we collect memories, as souvenirs collect dust. Until, one day, started the dusting of those memories, real or imagined. They were gathered and they met in this collection. And then, they started talking to each other, communicating without any control, like a Golem escaping his creator.

From the Introduction by William S. Cohen:
Taken as a whole, this collection of writings merges religious and secular themes and references, expresses optimism and despair, yearning and distancing, detachment and closeness, love and death, and had us travel through stones and sparks, letters and spirits, smoke and smile, songs and cries, east and west, hidden and revealed.
