At the center of Joan Fiset's exquisitely written memoir is a heartbreaking family secret the child knows but must not tell out loud. I read Now The Day Is Over in one fell swoop. Hypnotic, controlled yet wildly imaginative, it is one of the most disturbing and beautiful accounts of childhood I've ever read. Joan Fiset's Now The Day Is Over is both comforting and unsettling. For all the domestic terrors at the heart of it, It is a quiet, intimate book that unfolds in a gentle, unraveling manner, gaining much of its power through its muted tone and persistent gradual revealing. The power of the writing appropriately resides in the narrator's inherently attractive sensibility more than in the specific problems of dealing with an alcoholic father.

John Steinbeck wrote The Grapes of Wrath during an astonishing burst of activity between June and October of 1938. Throughout the time he was creating his greatest work, Steinbeck faithfully kept a journal revealing his arduous journey toward its completion. The journal, like the novel it chronicles, tells a tale of dramatic proportions—of dogged determination and inspiration, yet also of paranoia, self-doubt, and obstacles. It records in intimate detail the conception and genesis of The Grapes of Wrath and its huge though controversial success. It is a unique and penetrating portrait of an emblematic American writer creating an essential American masterpiece.

The sopolyrimu (songs, poems and lyrics for music) are inspired by the fragility of the human predicament, the struggle to maintain a meaningful integrity and lightness of spirit, the exquisite fineness of being alive, and the visions of the world (inner and outer) one is obliged to look at or be affected by. Equally, the sopolyrimu arise from the search for love, the experience of love and the loss of love. They are written to celebrate the joys and ugliness of the never ending stream of life in which we move, sometimes at a total loss, sometimes close to bliss, but always feeling something, if we allow ourselves to feel and ask questions of our feelings, and feel grateful. In this sense they are all love’s songs, to love with love from love. One of the sopolyrimu in this Volume is called Begun is done. Given the pattern of life, repetition is inevitable. There’s always another chance, until all the cards have been played. Each time, the intention, the content of the intention builds or diminishes momentum, and content accumulates through repetition, for better and worse, adding a dash or a dose of sugar or salt, acid or salve. It all adds up. Begun is done. Consciousness is everything, in the end, at the start. One says, “I did not realise.” One does not want to say, “I did not realise my self.” In that spirit, begun is done. May you be blessed by the self you realise. The most frequent comment about these sopolyrimu is that they are curiously healing, powerful, potent and pertinent, and demand and reward full attention.

Affected by addictions? Who does not know someone suffering from addiction or someone suffering from the effects of a loved one's addiction or someone who is well into a life restored from the destruction of addiction only to find other avenues of escape? Living in an age that encourages the forgetting of our tender innocence, born from the perfect design and purpose of our Creator, forgetting who we were created to be. Attempting to silence the voice of one's spirit to avoid the discovery of one's life purpose, then it is easy to fall prey to the seduction of the world of addiction. Many times we leave behind who we think we are, who we think we are supposed to be to better fit the ideas of those we love, many times painfully forgetting our unique gifts and talents for fear of rejection or failure. Some of us have tried to mold not only our lives, but others too as we drag them along, trying to fit into ideas that are not true to our purpose, leading a life of false identity instead of true destiny. Remembering Who We Are: a workbook based on an adaptation of AA's 12 steps is an experience, a process toward creating an environment for healing and restoration. Carol has brought together, not only her experience using the tools outlined, but suggestions from countless others who have used this guide to bring to you the best tools for 'working' the 12 steps of recovery. She has guided countless others desiring a life restored, a soul recovered, through this process and she has included in the last chapter a simple outline and guide for those desiring to use this process within a small group setting. This workbook is a manageable and practical guide for persons affected by addictions and this too is an entry into a more disciplined spiritual life, a step by step journey to uncover forgotten dreams and purpose for living. Offering loving guidance, creative tools and gentle honesty Carol guides you on a personal and intimate journey, applying the tools outlined, toward healing, discovery and restoration of a soul lost or forgotten. You will find the loving power and presence of God, as you understand God, a lasting and intimate relationship you can rely upon. Using mind mapping, visioning, letter writing for amends and other powerful tools form a solid foundation for you to be restored to the harmonious living of your human and divine nature. Being armed with no more than simple courage, willingness and honesty, those who dare to seek will uncover a life filled with purpose and wonder. Climbing out of the abyss and destruction brought on by dysfunctional behavior, false beliefs and addiction is difficult at best. Women and men as well as young teens find themselves inside the rooms of various 12 step programs, either as family members, a loved one or as the identified addict. Attempts to recover one's soul, while at the same time fighting emotions of anger, resentment and despair mixed with self-righteousness, it is easy to see why it appears as though accepting a life of mere abstinence is the easier, softer way.

Steven Church grew up in the 1970s and ’80s in Lawrence, Kansas, a town whose predictable daily rhythms give way easily to anxiety—and a place that, since Civil War times, has been a canvas for sporadic scenes of havoc and violence in the popular imagination. Childhood was quiet on the surface, but Steven grew up scared—scared of killer tornadoes, winged monkeys, violent movies, authority figures, the dissolution of his parents’ marriage, and most of all in Reagan’s America, nuclear war. His fantasies of nuclear meltdown, genetic mutation, and post-apocalyptic survival find a focal point in 1982 when filming begins in Lawrence for The Day After, a film which would go on to become the second-highest Nielsen-rated TV movie. Despite cheesy special effects, melodramatic plotlines, and the presence of Steve Guttenberg, the movie had an instant and lasting impact on Church, and an entire generation. Combining interview, personal essay, film criticism, fact, and flights of imagination, Church’s richly layered and darkly comic memoir explores the meaning of Cold War fears for his generation and their resonance today.

Eine leidenschaftliche Antithese zum üblichen Kulturpessimismus und ein engagierter Widerspruch zu dem weitverbreiteten Gefühl, dass die Moderne dem Untergang geweiht ist. Hass, Populismus und Unvernunft regieren die Welt, Wissenschaftsfeindlichkeit macht sich breit, Wahrheit gibt es nicht mehr: Wer die Schlagzeilen von heute liest, könnte so denken. Doch Bestseller-Autor Steven Pinker zeigt, dass das grundfalsch ist. Er hat die Entwicklung der vergangenen Jahrhunderte gründlich untersucht und beweist in seiner fulminanten Studie, dass unser Leben stetig viel besser geworden ist. Heute leben wir länger, gesünder, sicherer, glücklicher, friedlicher und wohlhabender denn je, und nicht nur in der westlichen Welt. Der Grund: die Aufklärung und ihr Wertesystem. Denn Aufklärung und Wissenschaft bieten nach wie vor die Basis, um mit Vernunft und im Konsens alle Probleme anzugehen. Anstelle von Gerüchten zählen Fakten, anstatt überlieferten Mythen zu glauben baut man auf Diskussion und Argumente. Anschaulich und brillant macht Pinker eines klar: Vernunft, Wissenschaft, Humanismus und Fortschritt sind weiterhin unverzichtbar für unser Wohlergehen. Ohne sie wird die Welt auf keinen Fall zu einem besseren Ort für uns alle. »Mein absolutes Lieblingsbuch aller Zeiten.« Bill Gates

A diagnosis of a stage IV cancer is quite a jolt for any family. This is the news that came to Jeff Wisdom, a husband and father in his mid-forties. When the diagnosis of an advanced cancer comes to a family, it can challenge faith and hope. Through the Valley is a biblical-theological reflection on suffering. It details what Scripture says about suffering and what God has promised, both now and in the future. It draws comfort and encouragement from some lessons learned. And it acknowledges and wrestles with some unresolved questions and issues. Jeff's reflections, as one who has endured cancer and chemotherapy, help to bridge Scripture's message and the experience of living with a deadly disease. Excerpts from his wife's journal are included to provide a window into this walk in a dark valley. This book does not address every aspect of the Bible's teaching on suffering, but it makes an important contribution to the topic of the suffering that comes seemingly unexplained as the result of living in a fallen world.

Exactly 6,884 years ago, the journey of man began with splendour, but disobedience to the Commands of God Almighty provoked God's anger which affected creation in its entirety. Mankind began to experience suffering, pain, sorrow and deaths for over 4,000 years. 2,000 years ago out of compassion God Almighty released back to earth His only begotten son Jesus Christ to reveal the plan of God's coming earthly Kingdom to the entire world through the gospel of the kingdom of God that the Holy Bible testified about. Jesus Christ paid the full price with his life for the original sin, so that God's plans can proceed as He desired. Now the Son of Man is back with the Kingdom of God which the entire world has never experienced before. I am Adam, Jesus, and now the awaited Messiah and I command you to pick up this book and study it so that it may be well with you and your loved once forever. The times recorded in Malachi 4 have now arrived. I have been sent by the "LORD of hosts, I AM, King of Grace and Glory, Almighty God" to Lead the entire world out of its misery. The Kingdom of God Almighty now rests in your hand.
