About the Author
Years ago, bestselling author & award-winning poet Jwyan C. Johnson wrote the script to a cartoon. The story starts off with a police chase to a giant dictionary: the home of our vocabulary words. Cops break down the cover, and they all rush in with their weapons drawn. And as they move around inside this book, we learn that they’re looking for one specific word: a simple 9-lettered noun. It has been bragging about its countless offenses committed against our society, against mankind. Surprising unarmed, and not dangerous, this specific word simply turns us against each other.
Detectives follow the "alphabetical” directions to the right page, the right column and the right row, only to discover that this word has disappeared! Nowadays this divisive word lives inside our minds if we let it! The accomplished mystery writer reveals that "ignorance” was the word the police were after.
The creative writings of Jwyan C. Johnson aim to biblically "protect and serve” the mind state because "ignorance is still at large in our society!” And with his latest contribution, there are some places where ignorance no longer resides so we can win back each other.
(Jwyan is also the author of Peace from the Puzzle, WordPlay, and mystery series Karma's Revenge)
Story Symbolism (Book 1)
Interview with the Author:
I sense an extra invitation inside this cozy mystery. Was a newer
philosophy delivered by the dialogue inside the story? And would you
care to reveal story symbolism?
A: The story design of Remember to Forget accomplishes a dilemma where amnesia versus forgiveness, in the Olympics of childhood and child development. And the question becomes is it easier getting over it when the environment no longer owns you, because you have left it psychologically (amnesia)? Is there any advantage to remembering the bad times and staying in that unchanging place with no other choice? (“I don’t have amnesia; I have flashbacks…”) So the experiment (referred to by Janine as a psychological sports match) is actually settling the stage for the ever popular argument over “nature vs nurture.” But since they are committed to working together, we get to experience all the advantages and all the disadvantages of both theories.
