Quote: by Leo Tolstoy

The following words appear across the screen at the conclusion of the Audrey Hepburn/Mel Ferrer movie of Tolstoy's War and Peace:


The most difficult thing -- but an essential one -- is to love life, to love it even while one suffers. Because life is all. Life is God. And to love life means to love God.

Call for Submissions:

The next issue of White Crane, scheduled for the Summer Solstice 1998, will feature articles on Gay Archetypes and Archetypal Awareness. What myths are gay men living out? Consciously? Unconsciously? For their own, and the world's, betterment? Or for their unwitting self-destruction? The Fall '98 issue will feature articles on "God": What does this notion mean in terms of today's scientifically and psychologically sophisticated cosmology? Is "God" personal? What is meant by Meister Eckhart's saying "The eye with which I see God is the eye with which God sees me"? What does gay perspective allow us to see about "God" that others may not?

The Winter '99 feature will be on Healing; Spring '99 on Gaia. Contributions are invited on these -- and any other -- topics of interest to a gay readership.
