I've been mourning Whitney Houston for years now. And as a Speculative Christian Fiction writer, I've been pondering the plight that this particular topic brings up.
I echo the same condolences that I've been reading all over the blogging world. Whitney Houston's end can only be described as one thing: Tragic.
Everyone knew it was coming, but this doesn't make it any less terrible and sad.
It seems that her 'one moment in time', where she was all that she could be, was cut extremely shot by her addictions.
I believe in life after death. I also believe that the way we exit this world is the way we enter the next.
So indulge me with a little speculative discussion.
How does an addict behave when he or she no longer has a body?
What controls the craving, the mind or the flesh?
If the mind controls the craving, how do you think one can get over an addicting substance?
If the body is addicted, but not the mind, then is he or she free?
I have my opinions, and you'll get to read all about them in the book that I'm currently writing, Endless. But right now I'm curious about your opinions. Feel free to comment below.
