      About the source of the stories in this book.
      The stories presented in this book are all excerpts from the series of eight novels, The Lodging for the Rose, by Rolf A. F. Witzsche. The series of novels presents an epic fictional story focused on the principle of universal love. Here love unfolds in universal 'white,' the color of the sun, a light that imposes no boundaries, nor shadows, but is challenged to unfold in a world where it is shunned, a world torn by divisions, darkened by isolation, threatened by war, even nuclear war that puts into question our very survival. In this world the glow of the romantic creates a new paradigm for the political. Still, the suspense in the series of the novels is not driven by games of power, violence, or terror, but is powered by intimacies that are not dimmed by the forces of long taught emotions, or the golden cages that we isolate ourselves in contrary to our hopes and desires. Yes, there is magic in this truth in which our humanity unfolds and shines.
       The selection of the stories from the novels has been done with care so as not to reveal the overall story line that unfolds through the series of the novels. The intent of providing the stories is twofold. One reason is to provide a preview of the vast range of the topics explored in the novels. Another reason is to enable the reader to explore some interesting elements that would otherwise not be accessible without reading the novels themselves. The stories have been selected according to six major topics to allow a more focused choice.

They are presented with all my love.
