An Arrow to the Heart
Christopher Cain, May 15, 2006
An Arrow To The Heart is decidedly not a standard conventional love story la Cupid's arrow! It's more like discovering too late that one's potential soul mate is equally attracted to a cat-a wildcat, to be precise- in the form of an 18 year-old daughter who is twice as precocious and desirable as her mother. It's a challenge for none other than a master of the universe, and that master is Jack Diamond himself-the Master of the Welded Bead and the lead character in the story which goes by that same name. It is actually a continuation of that story, written originally as a follow-on screenplay, but of such a different character as to demand its own title. The story is unique in that it demonstrates that no matter how "advanced," "developed," or "experienced" the soul, the vastness of the "Event-Former's" intelligence is always tossing a new combination of ingredients into life's cake to make the temptations of Satan seem like child's play next to the cake baked to tempt mastery's extended capabilities. What would you have done wearing the shoes of any of the story's principle characters?
