The Queensland in the story is owned by the fish. It is located on an imaginary island in the Coral Sea, for its isolation. While the world grinds on, a meeting of the minds is convened to explore the path to wider freedoms to love, to live, to choose, to cherish, to heal the world, to reach beyond its tiny marriages, and to enrich them, to courageously seek greater happiness; a type of brainstorming for liberty, peace and joy. The novel is fantasy focused on science. It presents a daring attempt to do what has not been done for a long time, and to some degree, never. It explores the challenge to take the Principle of Universal Love to the grassroots of our social world, and not exclude sex, but to uplift it above depravity, above morality, even above its tallest image in Christianity, onto the lateral platform where we all stand side by side as human beings "clothed with the sun." The exploration is wide-ranging, though it all unfolds on a small island where leading-edge researchers come together from many parts of the world.
This charmingly illustrated booklet explores Florida's 1,100-mile-long coastline and introduces children to the plants and animals that live along the shore. It was originally published as part of The Florida Water Story in 1998. This is one of a four part series that includes the Oceans, the Coral Reefs and the Wetlands of Florida.
