9781514438206: Pomegranate Jelly: A Cold War Family Preserved

Not everybody has a father who took part in creating the most destructive weapon known to humankind and also developed the prototypical lens system for making wide-screen movies. Quite a few people have mothers who pared down their youthful aspirations as they turned their attention to raising a family. Most people have parents who lived a fair portion of their early lives unfettered by preoccupation with children's needs, unaware of the limitations imposed by exigency, and full of the intoxicating sense that their whole lives lay ahead of them. We usually don't really know these people who became our parents, and often don't care to know them until it's too late. So many of us are too focused on creating our own lives, trying to ensure that they are something other than our parents' lives. So we fail to pay attention to who our parents were before they became the parents with whom we are familiar. By the time we wonder who they were their stories are often inaccessible to us. Pomegranate Jelly, A Cold War Family Preserved, is the story of these parents and their involvement with each other and with their world. The narrative reveals individual and family evolution in a historical context, explores motivating factors that led a pacifist couple into careers supporting defense technology for the military-industrial complex, and ponders human attributes of idealism, incongruence, denial, resignation and resilience. This is a story of true love--love for each other, for children, and for humanity.

About the Author:

Wendy Wallin has worked professionally as a Marriage, Family, and Child Therapist, and most recently on short-term assignments at various military installations counseling service members and their families. Her educational background includes an undergraduate degree in English, a master's degree in Clinical Art Therapy, and a paralegal certificate. For two years as a young woman, after graduating from the University of California at Berkeley, she served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Niger, West Africa. She then spent much of her adult life zig-zagging from place to place and job to job: Editor of a Newsletter in the United Nations' Department of Economic and Social Affairs in New York, legal secretary and paralegal in Santa Monica and San Francisco, psychotherapist in Napa, adjunct professor at Solano Community College in Northern California, and Military and Family Life Consultant in Germany, Kansas, Tennessee, Okinawa, and Southern California. She now enjoys country living and retirement with her husband and cats on their property in Napa County. Writing has always been an integral part of her varied life. She attributes this in part to her parents instilling in her, during her formative years, a belief in the power of the written word to foster enlightened thought as well as to entertain.
