Introducing "Just like Eve"

Breaking from its traditional non-fiction format, whispers of mystery is currently following Karina’s fictional novel, Just like Eve. Karina began the themes explored here in 2008, in a non-fiction book she titled The Feminine Mystery, alluding to Betty Frieden’s 1963 classic, The Feminine Mystique, which explores what Frieden calls “the problem that has no name” -- a problem Karina believes is Eve’s second curse to desire her (earthly) man, not sexually, but as a completion to her. Realizing her discoveries were too controversial for non-fiction, Karina decided to clothe her message in fiction, which is not her forte. For years, she tried many story-lines and faced much writer’s block. In late 2017, she birthed Just like Eve, utilizing a backdrop she could write about with her own sport of tennis, mixed into the storyline of her heroine getting kicked out of church for being the object of the youth pastor's temptation. In April, 2018, she took a step of faith to pray the Spirit would inspire her with an entry to post every month. Her prayers have been honored.

One Living Tree

 

Living Tree stood in the center of the heavens and the earth
He was one,
perfect, glorious
and alone.


Living Tree desired a partner,
a perfect opposite.
But Living Tree was one:
from where would a partner come?
Through Living Tree himself,
Creator carved out a perfect opposite
and Living Tree beheld her beauty



Living Tree breathed one
Making them two, his partner breathed two
Creator called them to unite
And the two became One
