Being only as computer savvy as was necessary for me to write "Barefoot to Palestine," I was fascinated by the beauty of this blog.
As I wrote the novel, Emelia's line leaped out at me - I not only saw the passion and determination such powerful love could evoke - an impossible journey, to Palestine, barefoot, for a touch of her lover's nether lip, but the line corroborated the existence of Palestine via Shakespeare, and took the love Rachel had for Samir, her husband, dead at her own father's hand, beyond limits, beyond eternity.
I could not have given my novel a loretta J. better title than this.

Every time I come back to this post I start off intending to leave a comment... and every time, I find myself so deeply in-trance, due to the gorgeous truth in the insights of your blog post, I crawl away from this URL without managing to tap out "thank you!!!!!" Rectifying that now. :-)
From my very earliest beginnings as a young actor, this line we adore in common has electrified me. 30 years later, it resonates exponentially more deeply. But I couldn't have articulated *why* so eloquently... thank you for this post.
