Theme and Subject Matter For LAST LIFE
The subject of DIVISION in America is at heart here with LAST LIFE. Racial division (BLACK and WHITE) and sexual division. as we explore the souls of two slaves; a man and a woman, who via deliberate plantation separation have traveled life to life; past to present; still suffering the same pain; The same symptoms of anxiety caused by a focus on power rather than Love.
To add a third element in the mixture, there is the child of this anxiety. A Love starved child who is angry at his parents. Able to disguise himself in different forms (different people) through various lifetimes, the child gives back what he feels he has learned; seek power over Love to succeed in this world. But the parents are ready to finally learn the lesson. They are ready to give up power and simply Love. They are ready to learn the lesson of this world and move on to another. They are ready to make this their LAST LIFE. Will their child learn the lesson in to time to go with?..
