When people ask me if I believe in magic I just laugh and simply say that magic is the one thing that can happen at any time, and more often than not will happen when you need it the most. That is if you believe in it. What if everything that we thought to be untrue or what we thought to be make-believe was not the case at all, but all of what we thought and all that we had hoped were nothing more than fiction turned out to be true.

Very, very few of us have spectacular lives where we would change nothing. Some of us even have unfortunate events around every turn, or so it seems. What separates us is how we react to these times. Often, people run away from problems, hiding in drugs, alcohol and casual sex. Others will overcome their issues and decide not to be products of their environment. A few go through both experiences, and can relate to anyone. April Davis is one of the "survivors" who has been through the entire range of human experiences and through her hard work come out enriched by them. In her book 'I Found Me', she has chronicled these experiences in dramatic fashion.

Sitting back down at the computer, she began to read Elena’s e-mail—a paragraph of catch-up news about her four grandbabies and of her and Rolfe’s latest travels—but it was the next sentence that jumped off the screen at her. So much so that while she had meant to set her mug down securely on the desk, she missed it all together, sending the just filled mug crashing to the floor. Elena hedged at first but then said she had been contacted by Joshua ...her Joshua of a lifetime ago. Whoa—why was the room spinning? Anne grabbed the side of the desk to steady her thoughts, closing her eyes to bring the room back down from outer space. Being the protector that Elena had always been toward her, she said she had not offered much information to him because she wanted Anne to be aware of his looking for her first. Could she give him her phone number, or what about the e-mail address? Anne’s head was spinning ... how ... where ... when did this happen? What was she to do ...why, why, now? As she took a deep breath, opened her eyes, and silently willed herself to finish reading the words that were now jumping off the page at her, she tried to read and not let her mind wander back. Back to all those years ago ... what was it now, at least forty ... to that hot summer when everything went wrong ... everything. Everyone remembers their first love, whether it lasts a season or a lifetime. In the course of a summer more than forty years ago, Anne-Elizabeth Adams’s first love nearly destroyed her. Up until that time, her life had been close to perfect. Pretty, rich, and spoiled, she had all the best a life of wealth and privilege could provide—everything except protection from a cruel world of wounded pride, mistrust, and scandal. Memories of that summer and of Joshua have haunted Anne for years, and even now, in the autumn of her life, the pain remains. Although she has promised herself never again to allow the demons of her past to wreak havoc on her life, an e-mail from her former sister-in-law serves as a catalyst for change and brings Joshua Breckenridge back into her life. Both have full lives, families, and spouses they love—but they can’t deny the draw they still feel, even today. Now they must struggle to maintain their current lives in light of the past and in order to ensure their futures.

This manuscript is one of kind, nothing has ever been written like it before, the story begins in 1941 with the first memory I can date and what I remember and explains why I grew up so completely different from the majority of other children that I went to school with. I begin in Petaluma California as a small boy and continue through the years telling of the hardships, struggles and sorrows my family and relatives faced as they worked and camped in the different orchards on Highway 99 or the 101 and barely making enough money to feed them and buy gas to the next job. Then during the winter each year Dad worked on chicken ranches or such until the spring when we would start all over again. That happened until the summer of 1949 when my family settled in Yountville California and where the story ends when I joined the Navy at age seventeen on the 18th of January 1955.

Words spoken through the mists of time: Trust--we love with pure heart, pure intent! Truth--we seek that which cannot be seen! Soul--we touch that which cannot be felt! Bitterness--we taste that which does not pass our lips! Success--we smell that which so sweetly does it hold the senses, yet of aroma it has none! Logic--we understand the concept of life, yet do know not how! Emotions--we heal the wounds within where scars do not show, yet go deeper than most! This book is about the struggles of a proud and resilient people whose way of life was to be altered without thought for their traditions or culture as the white men infiltrated deeper and deeper into their lands. It reflects their way of life before it changed, and the effect it was to have on a nation ground down by ignorance and greed. There are many reasons for this work, and spirit laid no blame on those perpetrators; the main reason they have come forward now is the need to see our world saved from the power struggle going on between nations, and the rape of our beautiful lands. Having been taken on many journeys with them, I understand so clearly how the indomitable spirit of this culture must stay alive, this being the reason for every word channeled. "To walk in shadow of sun is natural; to walk in shadow of another man is not." a Hand Held Out "I am being shown a beautiful babbling brook. the sun is glistering on it's surface as a thousand lights dancing with joy. a hand is being held out to me. I have to trust that all will be revealed as I walk into the picture. I can smell the newness of the morning, and sweet Bird song assails my ears. My (as yet to introduce himself) friend, tells me I am being taken on a journey of learning. So I follow... I follow a voice... a hand... I listen and I wait. I spy Red Squirrel scurrying around foraging among fallen leaves for nuts. They do not notice me, for I am not really there, only in the sense of illusion. Trailing along the brook i am shown a beautiful little Pawnee child. She is playing in the water with a small dog that is yapping and running in circles around the child who is giggling and laughing at it's antics. I feel as though I am watching this on a cinema screen, and yet I am being pulled into the scene by some unknown force."

Now regarded as a classic in dog literature, Ken Foster's memoir chronicles his journey from first-time dog owner to rescuer--and all the lessons and mistakes he made along the way. Bookended by the tragedies of 9/11 and Katrina, Foster finds that dogs open his eyes to the benefits of compassion, selflessness, and the chaotic beauty of living each day in the moment. But more than Foster's own story, readers remember the dogs. Among them are Duque, a Costa Rican stray; Brando, Foster's first adopted dog and a supposed pit bull mix who outgrew his Manhattan studio apartment; Rocco, a clownish red pit bull whose owner mistakenly gives him away to the wrong person; Zephyr, a cheerful Rottweiler mix who awakens Foster by sitting on his chest when his heart stops working; and Sula, the tiny lost pit bull who showed up at Foster's door one day and stayed. Whether bearing witness to national tragedy, grieving the death of a friend, or dealing with his own mortality, Foster finds strength in his dogs, and in the reciprocal nature of rescue.
But now at night I would wake up and find Brando curled up with glued-down
rodents that he had collected around him, where he would lick and groom them

By the time Keith was 17 years old, his rap sheet included DUI, possession of narcotics, and intent to distribute (that's drug dealing). He was emaciated from drug use, dirty and rumpled, and under house arrest awaiting trial. That's when a stranger paid him a visit, sitting down in his filthy room to touch his gaunt shoulder and pray. Maybe you are facing circumstances even worse than Keith's. Maybe you've made choices that have hurt you and the people around you. Maybe your family has failed or damaged you, leaving scars you're sure will never heal. Or maybe you just can't bring yourself to care anymore, because you've forgotten how to dream big. How ever lost you are, you have not been abandoned--a relentless God is pursuing you.
