"Jerrold Levinson's new book, Music in the Moment, makes a major contribution to the now flourishing field of philosophy of music. He has a daring thesis about music listening that is going to shake up the experts, and pose for them, and for us all, some very hard questions. To reuse, yet again, the old cliché, no one interested in the field, can afford not to read Levinson's book."—Peter Kivy, author of Authenticities"Jerrold Levinson is one of the world's outstanding philosophers of music. His new book, Music in the Moment, is bold, meticulous, cogent and immensely illuminating of the experience of listening to music."—Malcolm Budd, University of LondonWhat is required for a listener to understand a piece of music? Does aural understanding depend upon reflective awareness of musical architecture or large-scale musical structure? Jerrold Levinson thinks not. In contrast to what is commonly assumed, Levinson argues that basic understanding of music only requires properly grounded, present-focused attention, and that virtually everything in the comprehension of extended pieces of music that suggests explicit architectonic awareness can be explained without positing a conscious grasp of relationships across broad spans.

"In the Moment" presents a gritty series of short stories focusing on characters who are raw, honest, unredeemable, marginal, spiritual, and beautiful. Chronicling scenes from life made vividly authentic, all the players are genuine-people we might be or know, snapshots of everyday life. Chance a moment with a stranger, and experience unexpected events. Struggle along with a family whose child will never be any better than at that moment; stay with a rape victim through the horrific aftermath of her trauma. Run for safety in a war zone, and smell the Devil's missile. Get tipsy and dance with grannies, or pine for an ex. Grieve for a life wasted behind prison bars. Does an event define a life, or does the individual define the event? Is it a combination of both, or is it something else entirely? For the short stories of In the Moment, the moment is now-good or bad. That defining moment in a person's life can say volumes about his or her character. We may never know more than we do now; the next step in life's dance is conjecture, a mystery, an uncertainty-but its part in the story is vital nonetheless.

A momenta scant sliver of timeinto which the breath of life may be shared with another. One moment leads to another moment, and a string of moments creates Time. In time we see, we hear, we act, and we judge. We compare, we look for, we establish. Some of the time in excellence; some of the time in mediocrity. Each moment is important to the fullness of time. One moment poorly spent will inflict upon the remainder a taint hard to erase. A moment well spent will endue a lifetime of joy. Ultimately, it is ones life in all its deviations. The observations and the experiences openly shared and confessed in truth and spirit. In the Moment It Is Written! In this moment, I have created a combination of events, thoughts, questions, reflections, and interactions that produce and give greater meaning and a deeper reverence for my personal relationship with GodOur Father. These influences have empowered me with a deeper perception of my purpose, In the Moment.

Action in the Moment

Self-Awareness and Intuition for Leaders in Ambiguous Times

Action in the Moment challenges the idea of uncertainty as the basis of reality. Treating uncertainty as the basis of reality is very wrong when we actually live in an ambiguous world. If reality was based on uncertainty, a machine could replace us and there would be no reason for our existence. Additionally, ambiguity provides us with free will because we can then use our own internal rules in making decisions. We do not have to use the external rules designed into a machine that makes decisions based on probabilities and utility. Action in the Moment presents self-awareness and intuition as key concepts in improving our understanding of individual and organization behavior in ambiguous times. The thesis presented is that we must admit that ambiguity is the basis of reality, and, rely on self-awareness and intuition as fundamental to decision making and our reason for our existence. We clearly have much to do in responding to the apparent chaos presented by ambiguity. We have reached a point where we are like a deer frozen in the headlights of an oncoming car. Decision-making paralysis has resulted from us avoiding ambiguity as the basis for reality. This book describes a simple process for eliminating this paralysis by developing our self-awareness and intuition. The process presented will improve your leadership ability, the integrity of decision-making, and almost every aspect of organization behavior.

As we grow older, it seems to me that we become less interested in impressing people and more focused on being remembered by those who know us. Certainly, we want to have done enough good things to have those merits define us rather than our demerits. I think we clearly hope that loved ones and friends will know enough about us that they will understand why we lived life as we did. We do not think they will very often agree with us, but we strive to have them see why we took the paths we walked in our life. This modest offering is an attempt to bring a modicum of understanding of the motivations in my life to the minds of our children Alicia and Colin and to my enduring wife Sue. I know they all have wondered about me from time to time. I pray they always knew I wanted only to do good and have them sense the depth of my love for them. And, in these writings there is also a hope that friends and acquaintances will find some laughter and maybe even a tiny bit of wisdom to help them in their journey through life. I was blessed to be born to Shelby Ancel Haley and to Hettie Curry Haley on February 16th, 1945 in St. Joseph, Missouri. No child had more love and protection than I did from these excellent parents. My mothers love was total and was matched by that of my father. As I grew up I began to realize that my father had instilled a significant amount of wisdom in me, because he was truly a wise man. Each time I found myself in distress in life, I was able to remember a lesson or a saying from my dad that I could tie my lifeline to. Mom and Dad created a truly strong foundation for me to build my life upon. Perhaps this little book will help someone I know and love understand me better and remember me more often. It contains poems of faith, sayings some sermons I once delivered and a few devotionals and essays I put on the page over many years. I do want you to enjoy the reading and hope you will laugh more often with me than at me. If I make it to Heaven, I will be regularly walking those sunny streets. I would wish to encounter each and every one of you there and would delight in sharing laughter and love with you in long conversations. After all, we wont be pressed for time there, will we? God Bless!

Most of us operate on auto-pilot much of the time, passing through the present moment with our mind either caught up in the past or straining toward the future. Through mindfulness meditation, an ancient Buddhist practice, Anna Black shows you how to intentionally pay attention to your daily experience. When we are not being mindful, we miss out on small moments that often are the most valuable be it a beautiful building that we pass on our journey to work, the taste and texture of lovingly prepared food, or the fact that we are needed by those we love the most. By being mindless we miss opportunities for personal growth by not being aware of our shortcomings or our inner strength, or by letting negative thoughts and emotions control us.In mindfulness meditation we pay attention to our ongoing experience whether it is pleasant such as appreciating a starry night sky; unpleasant a disagreement with a loved one; or neutral doing chores. We become aware of our habitual thoughts and behaviours and discover which are helpful and which are not. We learn to listen to the body and pick up warning signs of stress as well as tune in to our inner wisdom. Packed with short and simple meditations, this book can be used by all people, in all walks of life and at any time.Anna Black is a highly qualified mindfulness practitioner, who teaches mindfulness workshops. She has a Masters in Mindfulness-based Approaches to Health and has completed the Advanced Teacher Development Intensive run by teachers from the North Wales Centre for Mindfulness and from the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Hospital, USA. She has an established personal practice in mindfulness and meditation ( and supervises other mindfulness teachers.

Praying in the Moment: Reflections on the Election of President Barack Obama groups reflections written between the president's election and inauguration, giving voice to Americans who experienced segregation, lynching and discrimination and thought they would never live to see the day that America would elect a black president. Eight of the reflections are told through the eyes of Americans who have experienced race relations at its worst, but have now witnessed progress beyond many of their expectations. The ninth reflection documents the experience of a young adult who attended the inauguration. The tenth gives voice to three children under age ten who express how they feel about the election of Americas first black president. All attend Second Baptist Church in Roselle, New Jersey, a historically black church that celebrated its 118th anniversary in 2008, as President Obama was being elected. Join Dinah White, Josephine Evans, G.G. Woody, Edith McIntyre, Theodore and Merlin Bragg, Joseph Thompson, Marguerite White, Marian Williams and her sister Barbara Turner, Jennifer Jones, twin siblings Jared and Jaida Baptist, and Annie Carty on a journey through American history.

"If there’s one thing Reusing understands, it’s the power of a remarkable ingredient." – O Magazine "[A] must-have title for both new and experienced cookes." --Publisher's Weekly (Starred Review) “Her enthusiasm is infectious, her approach, inviting.”—BookPage Top Pick and Cookbook of the Month “I love Andrea Reusing’s Lantern in Chapel Hill. And her recipes in Cooking in the Moment are so approachable and her stories so insightful that they blaze a path toward great home cooking.” —David Chang “I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying many fine meals at Lantern. Andrea Reusing’s food is always fresh, seasonal, and as local as possible. Her recipes are creative and downright delicious.” —John Grisham For Andrea Reusing—an award-winning chef, a leader in the sustainable agriculture movement, and a working mother—“cooking in the moment” simply means focusing on one meal at a time. Tender spring broccoli given a smoky char on the grill, a summer berry pudding with cold cream, or a cider-braised pork shoulder served with pan-fried apples on a frosty night—cooking and eating this way allows food in season to become the foundation of a full life. Cooking in the Moment is a rich, absorbing journey through a year in Reusing’s home kitchen as she cooks for family and friends using ingredients grown nearby. When seasonality is reimagined as a grocery list rather than a limitation, everyday meals become cause for celebration—a whole week of fresh sweet corn; a blue moon autumn asparagus harvest; a rich, spicy soup made with the last few sweet potatoes of winter. Reusing seamlessly blends down-to-earth kitchen advice with delicious, doable recipes, including childhood favorites (chicken and dumplings), simple one-pot dinners (shrimp, pea, and rice stew), as well as feasts to satisfy a crowd (roast fresh ham with cracklings). And while the action takes place in North Carolina, the kinds of producers and places that animate these pages—farmers, ranchers, cheesemakers, butchers, bakers, orchards, backyard henhouses, and fishing holes—can be found all over, producing the flavors that we crave. With gorgeous photography throughout and more than 130 recipes, Cooking in the Moment will inspire cooks everywhere to embrace the flavors and bounty of each season. From the Hardcover edition.

ONE WILD MOMENT IS NEVER ENOUGH… Recently burned by heartache, a fierce blizzard and a sexy stranger were exactly what Daisy Campbell needed. When she returned to her hometown and found herself stranded with Teague Larson, she never expected to throw caution—and her clothes—to the wind. But as the intensity of their attraction rose with the falling temperatures, they had to stay warm somehow, didn't they? Teague was deeply drawn to Daisy's independence and sophistication—not to mention those long, sexy-as-all-hell legs. But they'd both lost in the game of love before and neither wanted to lay their hearts on the line again. Yet this relationship felt entirely different—and worth fighting for. Could one night by a fire turn into a red-hot forever?

The world has waited decades for a new anti-hero in American fiction, a character who prophesizes the pettiness of American social life at the beginning of the twenty-first century. With Conrad Greyman, a social visionary arrives to illuminate the inequities and shallowness of our social lives now, as the Beats did for their generation.In a musty dorm room at an elite college in upstate New York sleeps Conrad Greyman. He sleeps all the time, in fact. Conrad is a casualty of postmodern malaise and bears hidden wounds he doesnt understand.Mardi Gras tells the fantastic story of Conrads spontaneous trip to the great Southern festival. He finds there, amid the infernal chaos of neon lights and Bourbon, a chance for unlikely redemption. Conrads journey through the mad streets of New Orleans becomes a modern hero-quest, and New Orleans an epic landscape. Conrads adventure is populated by holy fools who come to his aid, menacing frat boys, magical beads, and unadulterated American decadence. In the balance hangs the fate of an inward-looking soul trying to make his way through a fractured, carnivalistic world.
