"Lost on Purpose" is the non-fiction adventure narrative of a former technology executive who reinvented himself as a 21st century mountain man. In October/November 2013, Patrick Taylor crossed the Rocky Mountains alone on foot. He passed through one of the largest wilderness areas in the Lower 48 to reach and retrace the route of Lewis & Clark in the winter. The sacrifices - vocationally, financially, emotionally - are measured against the benefits by the author in a refreshingly honest, humorous, and inspirational fashion. If you liked "Wild" (and who didn't), you will love this wilderness adventure.

Reading Augustine presents concise, personal readings of St. Augustine of Hippo from leading philosophers and religion scholars. The looming crisis in higher education appears to be a matter of soaring costs and crushing student debt, but the problem is actually much deeper. It is a crisis of soul; a question of the very purpose of learning and the type of people that our educational system produces. Today, in the age of academic hyper-specialization and professional knowledge, the moral and spiritual purposes of learning have been eclipsed by a shallow view of career and success. On Education, Formation, Citizenship, and the Lost Purpose of Learning turns to the influential figure Augustine of Hippo to explore how he saved the liberal arts at the end of the Roman Empire and how his inspiring vision can do the same for higher education today. It offers a roadmap for reviving the soul of education – presenting concrete ways that the intellectual practices and economic enterprise of learning can lead once more to a fulfilled life of knowing God and loving others.

或許我可以找回失散已久的朋友, 母親的記憶。我突然發現自己 拿著婚禮蛋糕刀,看到刻有K字, 全身發抖,起雞皮疙瘩。 我記得,有些事,故意遺失。 《故意遺失》大致上屬紀遊詩,分成「聯合王國」、「歐洲大陸」和「新世界」三輯,各包含20幾首詩,在細微末節上能賦出詩意,顯示詩人才具真章。作者自己提示「此書核心主題是外地交流,以及這種交流如何使人反思自己的身份意識」,另外提到「《故意遺失》也是關於愛的書,特別是晚年發現的愛。同理,旅行歲月和更多『被譯』的生命觀,往往成為年齡更大、經驗更豐富人員的標誌。我們每遊覽過一個新地方,會不斷改變我們對世界的觀點。我們經時學習,擁抱差異,當做美好而且豐富的事物」。

Beasts and Gods

This, coupled with a growing sense of malaise in both new and established democracies forms the basis to the assertion made by some, that these are not democracies at all.

Democracy does not deliver on the things we have assumed are its natural outcomes. This, coupled with a growing sense of malaise in both new and established democracies forms the basis to the assertion made by some, that these are not democracies at all. Through considerable, impressive empirical analysis of a variety of voting methods, across twenty different nations, Roslyn Fuller presents the data that makes this contention indisputable. Proving that the party which forms the government rarely receives the majority of the popular vote, that electoral systems regularly produce manufactured majorities and that the better funded side invariably wins such contests in both elections and referenda, Fuller’s findings challenge the most fundamental elements of both national politics and broader society. Beast and Gods argues for a return to democracy as perceived by the ancient Athenians. Boldly arguing for the necessity of the Aristotelian assumption that citizens are agents whose wishes and aims can be attained through participation in politics, and through an examination of what “goods” are provided by democracy, Fuller offers a powerful challenge to the contemporary liberal view that there are no "goods" in politics, only individual citizens seeking to fulfil their particular interests.

Ever wake up and realize you've been living a life based on "shoulds" & other people's expectations? Although from the outside Janelle's young professional life looked great, she felt suffocated. She lived with anxiety most days and was confused about what she was supposed to do next with her grown-up life. After one night of seeing this false life flash before her, she knew she had to start a new chapter. She broke up with her boyfriend, escaped her 9 to 5, and moved to Spain, where she didn't speak the language and didn't know anyone. Two years later, she unexpectedly found herself back in the United States. This time, though, she lacked the certainty that filled her when she left. She was more depressed, anxious, and confused than ever before.She questioned everything about who she was and what she was meant to be doing. For the first time, she had an inkling that maybe, she was meant for something great. Maybe she had a greater purpose in life. She started to see that she had an inner compass to guide her along the way, she just had to listen and trust. Told with honesty and humor, Janelle's stories are for anyone that struggles with feeling lost, or unworthy and yearns for a life with more meaning and purpose. Courage to Find Purpose is relatable, inspiring, and ultimately will speak to that part of your soul that needs to hear these messages.
