A story about healing
Which distance is
the geographic distance that separates the continents and nations,
or the distance heart to heart that separates humanity?
Imagine a voyage across twelve time zones.
The story is fiction. It is a healing story unfolding in the background to a love affair between three people in which many barriers are crossed. The story begins in Hawaii. When the world of tragedy from an accidental nuclear holocaust catches up with them, the three set sail on a voyage that takes them across twelve time zones to distant Russia, the home of one of the three. The time zones also stand analogous for the distance they cross between one-another and their cultural backgrounds.
The story, Time Zones, is a chapter from the novel, Brighter than the Sun, by Rolf A. F. Witzsche.
