Unexpected Pilgrims by John F Zurn

By John F Zurn

My new ebook, unforeseen Pilgrims, is a set of writings that characterize a a little bit diverse path in either thought and subject matter for me. rather than hoping on more often than not autobiographical studies, this e-book is an try and create a couple of fictional plots and characters that should replicate the happenings within the aim global. To be extra particular, my ebook portrays many psychological overall healthiness concerns and social occasions from exact issues of view. during the textual content, quite a few people who fight with psychological demanding situations are required to set out and learn to take care of adversity in either their exterior environments and from inside of themselves. in an effort to reside a practical existence, every one personality needs to face the area or break out from its cruelty and indifference. those tourists are “unexpected pilgrims” simply because they characterize a bunch of seekers who aren’t often thought of special or heroic. still, they bravely sojourn via an insensitive international looking for their very own mystery sanctuaries of recognition and love.

In phrases of association and content material, unforeseen Pilgrims is split into 3 person segments that should describe and intricate in this concept of pilgrimage. the 1st part is produced from 8 brief tales that categorical the various many ways within which members locate their method in adversarial societies. This look for knowing is usually pressured upon those seekers, and their good fortune isn't guaranteed.

Following the fast tales, the second one part of unforeseen Pilgrims is a one act play referred to as “Behind the steel Doors.” This play is an try and describe the psychological well-being pros and their sufferers in a manner that scrutinizes society’s incessant want for conformity, regulate, and obedience. This obsession with authority is illustrated within the play incidentally sufferers are handled and the way they're perceived as humans. seeing that those issues were again and again addressed in all types of writing, I selected to hire unusual props and outlandish discussion so that it will wake up within the viewers the techniques and issues that experience turn into virtually cliché and so likely irrelevant.

The 3rd and ultimate component to the ebook is a set of eighteen unique poems. They signify my very own own attempt to beat sadness and deal with melancholy. those poems additionally function quiet reminders that aid me refocus my strength in my very own sojourn in the course of the global. ultimately, the identify of my booklet, unforeseen Pilgrims, is my manner of explaining the concept we're all pilgrims who're searching for our means domestic. many of the characters in my ebook move from innocence to event, they usually both be successful or fail. nonetheless others are overpowered by way of an international that can't or won't settle for them. however, the braveness, creativity, and perseverance of those mentally challenged pilgrims and their opposite numbers on the earth are a testomony to their originality and tool. Even in a opposed global that rewards ambition and bows all the way down to the strong, those strange souls take to the open highway the place the uninspired dare now not tread.
