Poetry is unique in its thought, style, and presentation. The selections in this small anthology of original poems, "AS SIMPLE, SIMPLY SAID", are the first in a trilogy of compositions by Giovanni Maria Tommaso. They represent the thoughts, images, emotions, feelings and perspectives of a consciously lived spiritual, interior and existential life. Each particular subtle work is an expression of a certain perspective or view-point of delicateness which can go unnoticed or missed entirely in this hectic world of cheap, easy thrills and desires. We all live through these moments, we all have a perspective about them; not all can express them.

The author of this book makes easy reading of complex mysteries in the Bible. For instance: Adam and Eve were not the first two people on Earth. It tells why the Bible is written the way it is. It will reveal why, how, when, and where Noah’s flood occurred. The Trinity is explained in its simplicity as never before. It uncovers the myth behind the Rapture conspiracy. It unveils the War in heaven, the katabole, and why one must be born from above. These and other truths are explained in this simple book. God has blessed this author to understand the truth in the Scriptures. It is imperative in these last days that all truths be revealed. Only by knowing these truths can one stand up to the demons and antichrists of this world. If one loves God or seeks to know God, this book can open your eyes to God’s will for each of us. That is for each of us to return to that perfect place in heaven, where it all began with Him.

It Simply Must Be Said

The need for "educational reform" has once again returned to our national discourse. However, despite many years of federal, state and local legislative mandates and school reform initiatives, remarkably few substantive changes have occurred within the standard public school classroom. Classes of 25 students, sitting in rows, at desks, in rooms that are often too small, under the direction of an individual teacher, continue to be the norm. The time for an honest re-examination of failed "outside-in/top down" educational reform policies is beyond urgent. We must shift our focus to the requisites of those who do the actual educating: Teachers! Hank Warren is passionate about the "calling" of teaching. "It Simply Must Be Said' focuses on the issues facing education from the perspective of an active public school teacher via a collection of observations, experiences, stories and recommendations from 34 years in teaching. Throughout the book Hank addresses serious concerns with humor and relevant tales of actual events. During his career, Hank has taught at every level, kindergarten through 12th grade. Consequently, his insights are drawn from the uncommon experience of having worked with students from age five to eighteen. Hank's innovative teaching methods have resulted in his presenting workshops at local, state and national educators conferences, and publishing articles in educator journals. As Founder, CEO and CFO of a unique community based education program, Hank has organized and led numerous student tours throughout the country. Hank has also taken advantage of the opportunity to accompany his wife, who serves on the board of a highly successful credit union, to numerous national and world credit union conferences. This has afforded him the rare chance to interact with educators from an extraordinary number of states and countries. The wealth of information gleaned from these travel experiences have significantly shaped his understanding of the common issues that permeate education.

John Boyne has become internationally known for his acclaimed novels Crippen and the bestselling The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. Now, for the first time in the United States, comes the book that started the career of the author that the Irish Examiner calls "one of the best and original of the new generation of Irish writers." It is 1758 and Matthieu Zela is fleeing Paris after witnessing the murder of his mother and his stepfather's execution. Matthieu's life is characterized by one extraordinary fact: before the eighteenth century ends, he discovers that his body has stopped ageing. At the end of the twentieth century and the ripe old age of 256 he is suddenly forced to answer an uncomfortable question: what is the worth of immortality without love? In this carefully crafted novel, The Thief of Time, John Boyne juxtaposes history and the buzz of the modern world, weaving together portraits of 1920s Hollywood, the Great Exhibition of 1851, the French Revolution, the Wall Street Crash, and other landmark events into one man's story of murder, love, and redemption.

Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 'Good God, thought Oliver, as he saw the smile. She thinks I'm him! And all at once he knew it was so. He was Dr Norman Wilfred.' On the sunlit Greek island of Skios, the Fred Toppler Foundation's annual lecture is to be given by Dr Norman Wilfred, the world-famous authority on the scientific organisation of science. He turns out to be surprisingly young and charming - not at all the intimidating figure they had been expecting. The Foundation's guests are soon eating out of his hand. So, even sooner, is Nikki, the attractive and efficient organiser. Meanwhile, in a remote villa at the other end of the island, Nikki's old school-friend Georgie waits for the notorious chancer she has rashly agreed to go on holiday with, and who has only too characteristically failed to turn up. Trapped in the villa with her, by an unfortunate chain of misadventure, is a balding old gent called Dr Norman Wilfred, who has lost his whereabouts, his luggage, his temper and increasingly all normal sense of reality - everything he possesses apart from the flyblown text of a well-travelled lecture on the scientific organisation of science... And as the time draws ever nearer for one or other Dr Wilfred - or possibly both - to give the eagerly awaited lecture, so Skios - Greece - Europe - career off their appointed track. Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize, Skios is a story of mislaid identity, misdirected passion and miscalculated consequences. Michael Frayn is also the celebrated author of fifteen plays including Noises Off, Copenhagen and Afterlife. His other bestselling novels include Headlong, which was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and Spies, which won the Whitbread Best Novel Award.

Zen Questions

Zazen, Dogen, and the Spirit of Creative Inquiry

Whether speaking of student or master, Zen hinges on the question. Zen practice does not necessarily focus on the answers, but on finding a space in which we may sustain uncertainty and remain present and upright in the middle of investigations. Zen Questions begins by exploring "The World of Zazen,"--the foundational practice of the Zen school--presenting it as an attitude of sustained inquiry that offers us an entryway into true repose and joy. From there, Leighton draws deeply on his own experience as a Zen scholar and teacher to invite us into the creativity of Zen awareness and practice. He explores the poetic mind of Dogen with the poetry of Rumi, Mary Oliver, Gary Snyder, and even "the American Dharma Bard" Bob Dylan. What's more, Leighton uncovers surprising resonances between the writings of America's Founding Fathers--including Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin--and the liberating ideals at the heart of Zen.

She didn’t expect the network to refuse to air it. She didn’t expect her coworker to turn up dead the next day, and she certainly didn’t expect she and her new young acquaintance would be framed for his murder. The young man’s story, true or not, has definitely ruffled some very powerful feathers, and Serena soon finds that her association with this mysterious stranger has put her entire existence in jeopardy. Will she believe his story and help him on his unlikely quest, or feed him to the wolves in order to save herself? The Man From 3015, a sci-fi thriller, is a story of hope, redemption and the David-and-Goliath struggle between one of the ‘little people’ and a run amok corporate juggernaut that asks: Can one person really make a difference?
