Publisher's Summary

An epic adventure, Ships of Song, A Parable of Ascension, explores the holographic nature of humanity, integrating science, religion, philosophy, and fantasy into a cinematic view of human existence. It reveals the intricate tapestry of a loving universe, which orchestrates the delicate dance of oneness with All That Is, offering hope for a brighter future and the realization that we are not alone in the universe.
The setting for the Ships of Song is deep within the North Carolina mountains at a date in the not too distant future. The earth has been experiencing violent environmental changes, creating a fragile ecosystem and the collapse of the country's infrastructure. Elizabeth, the main character, is overwhelmed by the lack of food and the pending winter. She struggles between hope and despair, wondering what will become of her, her husband, John, and the 150 refugees who have gathered in their once tranquil valley. The story occurs in a single day, with Elizabeth feeling she is called to "witness" the rising sun from the pinnacle high above the community.
During her vigil, she is unaware that she is whisked away between heartbeats to a place beyond time and space. She thought-walks and "witnesses" the moment of creation, the exploration of the universe, the inhabitation of Earth, their entrapment in consciousness, and the long evolutionary process back to humanity's origins, which culminates that night in the evening sky. Her day, which began in the fitful sleep of one unable to resolve her life, emerges into a day interspersed with a sense of mystery, magic, and hope.
