Great Faith in a Seed

Dwight E. Watson

Abstract


Dramatic writing often begins with equilibrium, a balance, suggesting to an audience or reader the desired state of things. Equilibrium may last for a while or it may be disturbed almost immediately. While disturbance in drama is anticipated, and even desired, in life and nature disturbances often leave us baffled with actions unresolved. For example, how do we react to an invasive species in nature or graft-versus-host disease in transplantation? Is regenerative therapy an “act of biological resurrection?” Is it great faith in a seed? Is writing dialogue?Is building a cabin? Is equilibrium even desirable? This paper seeks equilibrium in building, writing, and regenerative therapy.
