In her article, she raises the question "Was Bella TOXIC (Poisonus) to Jacob Black ?
Dear Mrs. T,
Dear Kimmie, Please forgive the old professor in me (I don't want to sound paternal) but I have to compliment you on such as well written and insightful response. But your thoughts are almost exactly in keeping with Doctor Housel's (Professor of Writing and Literature) . In her recent essay "The Tao of Jacob Black." (like you instinctively inferred when you read the story, I didn't) Housel says that the 4300 year old symbol Tao. (Of the merging white and black teardrops.) Jacob, as you two both observed, would be the yang (or black drop) which represents softness and warmth, Edward would be the white (Yin drop) for hard and cold. And as she said, and you imply, they flow into each other. But here is your and her genius, you both see that Bella is the white dot on Jacob black tear, and the black dot in Edward's white Yin. THAT IT IS SHE THAT HOLDS THEM TOGETHER!! WELL DONE KIM!!
Dr Houser said "They are good for Bella, and she is good for them. Bella creates peace between them. Which sound almost identical to your " My point is, they compliment each other, both are good for Bella in their different ways and Bella is good for both of them, to create peace amongst lasting enemies over generations. (Kimmy! You really aren't Dr Houser pulling my leg are you?)
You conclude "Which in turn moves on to include Renesmee. That's not so bad." No Kimmy like your response, as a mater of fact, it is very good. Very good indeed. Thank you for sharing with us, Doc
