What inspired Saeed to write this book?
"I cannot identify a singular trigger for this work. In the mix are the many reminders of mortality via departed friends, failing anchors and truthful mirrors. Of course the introspective urges of the life's sunset years stir a quest for both a deeper meaning to life and its approaching legacy. In the mix too is the religious and political turmoil that besieges us all in the advent of the 21st century. Hatred pollutes faith and this book is directed first inwardly and then at anyone whose hatred of another springs from a difference of belief. Growing old can be a spiritual gift. A negative environment too, though not inspirational, gifts us the great opportunities of change and renewal".
