Ginny's Book

The Scorpion and the Caterpillar is about the loss and transformation that can occur in our lives. On March 27th, my son Tarik became an angel in heaven. Tarik was a wonderful writer and storyteller and it was through his eyes I was able to write this book. His love of nature and seeing all that is around us each day was an inspiration to me.

As I looked at the lives of scorpions and caterpillars I realized that loss is as much a part of life as birth. For as we enter this world through birth we leave a place from which we came, which in a sense is our first loss.
Once I started to think about my loss, I found myself exploring and asking “Why?” I found some answers that proved to be satisfying but some questions remain unanswered.

I hope this book will recapture your childlike openness to explore the possibility that life and love are eternal.

Thank you, Tarik for being my eyes. I dedicate this book to you and your scholarship fund (Tarik Toukan Memorial Scholarship Fund: www.tariktoukan.com)
