ÂRadical, before it meant a person who advocates strong political reform, meant getting to the root of things, the origin. It comes from the Latin radix, radicis, meaning radish, a root vegetable.âÂBK Loren
These meditative essays range in subjects from a transcendental encounter with a pack of coyotes ironically juxtaposed with her neighborâs claim that nature Âhas gone out of vogue,â to Lorenâs motherâs slow yet all-encompassing deterioration from Parkinsonâs, and the unexpected way the Loma Prieta earthquake eroded her depression by offering the author a sense of her small place in a wild and worthwhile world.
Loren has an empathetic and gentle approach to the world. In detailing the intricacies of human relationships and consciousnessÂfear of death and time, cooperation born of clashing viewpoints, traditionâs beauty even when destructive, a love of language, a sense of loss amid the fast-paced materialistic worldÂshe peels back the film of popular thinking in order to expose herself to the secrets so few of us ever see.
