|About the Book|
Taking the poetic, mystical approach for which he has become known, Simon Parke looks at the intriguing subject of origins. Love, hate, happiness, tyranny and flying machines are some of the many subjects covered in a book that encourages us to follow the river back to its source- to discover in the adult the child who came before- to trace in the helicopter Leonardo da Vincis fifteenth century drawing of a vertical flight machine . . . Funny, entertaining and profound, Origins will appeal to those who want more than a life lived on the surface, as it draws us into a deeper understanding of ourselves, our world, other people and the spiritual dimension.
