Taking the quantum leap into writing is like a journey. It is an exploration into the quantum field of possibilities. Good research, interviews, and readings are the beginnings of good writing. After much focus on thoughts, then it is time to be silent and allow the brain to percolate possibility. Then I rely on the synchronicity of events, meaningful coincidence that puts me in the right place in the right time, to meet the next interview or find the right location.
In this sequel, award-winning journalist Dr. Donna Clovis recounts the stories of Princeton,
New Jersey, from the 1960s to the present, through the eyes of its oldest citizens by means of
interviews, diaries, and articles. The synchronicity of being at the right place at the right time
for the interviews, locations, and journals plays a major role in the construction of the book.
