Middleton Corner is a non-descript crossroads on Ohio U.S. 68 south of Xenia and north of Wilmington. Even the crossroads is a bit unorthodox because Spring Valley Paintersville Road intersects U.S. 68 and then jogs a short distance on U.S. 68 before continuing its meandering path between Spring Valley and Paintersville. I am not sure why there is a highway sign posted or why it is listed on the Ohio map, but it is. At first glance it would appear that there is nothing special about Middleton Corner. There are a thousand such little hamlets throughout the United States. This little book is a salute to Middleton Corner and all the other small settlements out there. The point is that there is beauty and excitement everywhere. Sometimes you just have to slow down and take the time to see the beauty and the adventure that surrounds us all the time. It is a lot like the Field of Dreams. You build it and they will come. In the case of Middleton Corner all you have to do is look for the excitement, the grandeur, and the beauty in the simple things and it will be revealed to you. The author, through a series of one-page vignettes and photos has captured the essence of seeing God in all of creation, even at a place like Middleton Corner.
One of my favorite summer memories when I was in grade school was the sound of a hen clucking in the summer heat. I can't really describe the sound. It is something you have to hear. In fact, it was more than the sound, it was a total ...

A beautiful memoir of summer people and water creatures, which illustrates the formative effects of nature on children by an author who has forged a career caring for animals. For readers of Raynor Winn's THE SALT PATH, John Lewis-Stemple's STILL WATER and Gerald Durrell's MY FAMILY AND OTHER ANIMALS. Year after year the family returns to the lake. The children, barefoot and free, explore its sun-drenched wilderness. Bruce Fogle recounts his childhood summers spent at the family cabin by the lake. In an atmospheric new foreword, Bruce's son, wildlife presenter Ben Fogle, shares his experiences spending summers in the very same cabin. The summer Bruce turns ten seems, at first, like any other: swimming out to the raft, watching the gulls, frogs and herons, catching crayfish. But just when he thinks that life is perfect, everything begins to change, and over the course of two months both the harshness of the adult world and the patterns of the natural world reveal themselves. Barefoot at the Lake is not only a beautifully written boy's-eye view of the animals, humans and landscape of his youth, it is also delightfully funny, with a moving wisdom at its heart.
To me, the sound of wood being sawed was the sound of summer. There was an almost biological rhythm to the sound, a dignified thrum, calming, contemplative, relaxing. Our cottage had always been the last on the point, a dead end.

This book studies Wallace Stevens and pre-Socratic philosophy, showing how concepts that animate Stevens’ poetry parallel concepts and techniques found in the poetic works of Parmenides, Empedocles, and Xenophanes, and in the fragments of Heraclitus. Tompsett traces the transition of pre-Socratic ideas into poetry and philosophy of the post-Kantian period, assessing the impact that the mythologies associated with pre-Socratism have had on structures of metaphysical thought that are still found in poetry and philosophy today. This transition is treated as becoming increasingly important as poetic and philosophic forms have progressively taken on the existential burden of our post-theological age. Tompsett argues that Stevens’ poetry attempts to ‘play’ its audience into an ontological ground in an effort to show that his ‘reduction of metaphysics’ is not dry philosophical imposition, but is enacted by our encounter with the poems themselves. Through an analysis of the language and form of Stevens’ poems, Tompsett uncovers the mythology his poetry shares with certain pre-Socratics and with Greek tragedy. This shows how such mythic rhythms are apparent within the work of Friedrich Nietzsche, Martin Heidegger and Hans-Georg Gadamer, and how these rhythms release a poetic understanding of the violence of a ‘reduction of metaphysics.’
