Seldom, if ever, has a work affected me to such a degree as has A Secret Symmetry. Indeed, the tale of Sabina Spielrein is remarkable for its intensity and significance with regard to the development of the psychoanalytic movement. Yet, A Secret Symmetry is far more than a ground-breaking historical and biographical document; rather, it serves as the key which thrusts open a tragically neglected door to the past as well as that which unlocks the erotically- and intellectually-charged aspects of the psyche within modern times.

For me, Sabina Spielrein represents the torment inherent within a passionate and fully-engaged existence. Sabina seized the eternal moment. She loved with her entire being. She courted and seduced universal symbols and mythologies and made them her own. She explored the fertile terrain of the unconscious and made manifest that which she felt deserving of the breath of life. I find it sadly ironic that her legacy has been stigmatized on the basis of the very passions that precipitated her most profound contributions.

No words suffice in expressing my gratitude to the one who placed this book within my hands. All I can offer is my most sincere belief and conviction that a whole new world of wonder and exploration awaits us. Walk with me…

Released on Friday, December 26, 2003 at Starbucks (across from McKay's) in Knoxville, Tennessee USA.

This book was left on the small cafe table in the cozy back alcove where it appears my friend Aisho left a book earlier in the day. I hope whoever discovers this book will find it to be as intriguing as I did.
