I dedicate the conversations that appear on this site to my daughter, Clea Iqbal, for she is the source of all the conversations.
Ever since she was a little girl, I would stop by her bedroom to check where she was at, and to read her a bedtime story. We loved reading The Gruffalo together. Yet, what she particularly liked was the ‘wisdom stories’ – she couldn’t get enough of them. I often had to decline her request to tell her “just one more story!”
One day she made a request of me along these lines: “Papa you are so good at these wisdom stories. Why don’t you write a book? That way I can carry these stories with me.” This request gripped me as my daughter is and always has been precious to me.
After careful consideration, I chose to share whatever ‘wisdom’ I have to share by setting up this website/blog. This way she has access to this ‘wisdom’ through her smartphone.
I hope one or more of my fellow human beings may find some of these conversations useful in handling that which shows up on that which we have in common – the ‘space’ between birth and death: existence, human existence.
