becoming me is a modern creation
story that speaks from the heart of all creation myths of the world
in a way that will appeal to both adults and children, becoming me shows
all of creation as an enormous process of curiosity and play.
it's an expression
of love in a simple modern way, free of any specific traditions. beginning
with the line, "once upon a time, i was" ... the whole thing
is told from the delightful point-of-view of the creator ...
"... daring? yes. presumptuous?
there is a humility and simplicity--and just enough mischief--in
the writing that makes it somehow plausible that the person of
god has written this book, describing the enormous complexity
of creation in terms of self-discovery. ... profound fun
for all ages, a delight for anyone who enjoys pondering imponderables."
