A Tale of Two Deserts

Enigmatic Christmas Fables for the Modern Age

As the sub-title of the book suggests, what you will find here are two very enigmatic tales. After reading them you may ask, what is the point of these stories? What do they mean? This, actually, is the point; the book is an invitation to reflect, to contemplate, to learn and to realise that life is a journey best undertaken with eyes open and with a mind not imprisoned by ideology, in whatever form that may come: religion, capitalism, socialism, atheism, science, engineering, technology … The list seems endless.


To help you to understand these fables, though, I will mention here that the first tale, of the second, makes more sense, and the second tale, of the first, makes more sense. And here I also invite you to reflect upon the narrative that runs across both tales; in some places this narrative is self-evident, and in others less so. Finally, I mention the messages, most important, to be found in these two tales. What can be said of these? The answer is very clear; there are many messages, some obfuscated, some not, and the most profound and clear message, to all the peoples of the world, is to begin to walk a different path, and soon!
