In my international love story and suspense drama "A Mindful Death" the protagonist is presented with a choice to show less defensiveness when his sense of self is challenged by a confrontation that threatens his mortality...and instead allowing compassion and fairness to weigh in on his decisions how to react...and act.
In "A Mindful Death" choices are made you wouldn't normally make. And the protagonist lives with the consequences knowing he made the best out of an impossible situation.
By "focusing his attention on what happened in the present moment, and doing so with a receptive, open attitude" he made choices he found a way to live with.
When you read "A Mindful Death" do so without judging. Instead feel empathy for the characters and the event that follows. You will find in the end that there is a love AND death that can be mindful...and justified.
"A Mindful Death" is scheduled for release in May 2017. Book launch and reading in Cold Spring scheduled for 6pm on September 28th, 2017 at lovely Hudson House Inn, Cold Spring NY.
