IF NOT DANCE
The Oracle, Book I - Here or there
(from estimated 5 books) is a marriage between everyday life in a different culture and the inexplicable.
In her twenties, Jasmin, a Polish artist desires to move abroad to the Netherlands to fulfill her potential and find a better life, which frustratingly never seems to come. Facing lack of money and forbidden love, she additionally experiences constant nightmares, about her apparent alter ego Sarah, an Oracle, a priestess. Although Jasmin tries to ignore the dreams, fiction seems to creep into reality. Jasmin, with no trust in her own abilities, has glimpses of a strong demanding Sarah who never gives up in her attempts to remove the curse from her future incarnations.
What is the connection
reality and inner one,
if any? Is Jasmin
a reincarnation of Sarah
or indeed an alter ego? Can dreams influence everyday life and to what degree?
Reality versus unknown is not the only conflict Jasmin deals with. Living in a society focused on survival in a materialistic world, she strongly tries to suppress her artistic nature to survive. She will have to make a decision to stay in the Netherlands or fail again and go back. Will she come to terms with dreams about past incarnations? Will she be able to keep the border intact between normal human perception and mystery?
