I'm reminded in all of this of Jennifer Toth's book, Mole People; Life in the Tunnels Beneath New York City Chicago Review Press, 1993.
She writes, on pp. ix-x,
The people of New York City who live underground are most commonly known as mole people. And it is no accident that the term conjures freakish images. I hope this book will revere the horrible and striking image of 'mole people' simply by showing what I saw and found. I hope the stories from the tunnels will bring a better understanding of the underground people. By writing their stories, I hope to dismiss the myth of animal-like underground dwellers, so that you, the reader, can come to know that mole people don't exist between the surface of New York City, but people do.She's saying that what you find when you go within yourself or probe below the surface, is just humanity lurking there. By seeing it, we realize it's not so bad after all.
But maybe it's something not everyone wants to see.
What do you think about this? Can we talk about writing here? Post a comment.
Writing is, to me, an entrepreneurial activity. Entrepreneurial ideas are the life's blood of my writing. For my entrepreneurial course, Entrepreneurship on Line, go to www.hatman2.blogspot.com. For entrepreneurial real estate to www.yourstopforrealestate.com/blog
