Rising Sun, Distant Mountain
"What the hell am I supposed to do now " When Alex Baines spoke those words, he did not know how such an apparently simple question would not only change his life, it would change who he was as a man. RISING SUN, DISTANT MOUNTAIN is a love story, a travelogue, and a spiritual tract all rolled into one. In Alex Baines' consternation, and in Barbara Nickerson's wisdom, the reader will find a Truth where they might not have expected it...within themselves. The title itself is a metaphor for this discovery. The rising sun represents the dawning of self-awareness. The distant mountain suggests the first and final challenge of a self-aware life...the full exploration of one's nature and identity. This, many believe, is the only really important task we face in this world.
