Today’s (Decemeber 3, 2004) issue of The Jewish Press carries a front page follow up to my original article published on July 16, 2004, called “My Heart Unhinged.” The new essay is called, “To Repair an Unhinged Heart.” This feature is about Ariel, Seraphic Press, and The Hebrew Kid and the Apache Maiden. In essence it is the story of how this website and the publishing house came about. I write that if not for Ariel’s illness, if not for his death, none of this would exist. I call it, a cruel calculus.
A special thanks to Jason Maoz, Editor-in-Chief of The Jewish Press, who, with great generosity and admirable professionalism, has opened up the pages of his newspaper to my reflections. He also cites Seraphic Secretin his “sort-of-annual” list of most recommended websites and blogs. Jason has orchestrated amazing things with this newspaper during his tenure.
