  • Balcony View, Living at Ground Zero after 9/11

    by JULIA FREY
    Very quietly Ron said, “You know, I think the Towers are going to go. Maybe we’d better get out of here.” \tIf either of the Towers fell at a certain angle, our building was directly in the line of fall. Above the raging flames, the perpendicular steel I-beams were beginning to bulge out, softening in the heat. Again his unnaturally quiet voice, “I can’t stay here. If the Towers fall on us, I’ll die of fright.” Julia Frey’s diary begins with September 11, 2001, when she and her terminally ... more

  • Overcoming the Emotional Stigmas of Infertility: Barren but Not Ashamed

    by Frances Jones
    Do you feel like a failure because you cannot conceive or carry a baby to full term? Do you feel unworthy for being infertile? Are you ready to transform from a mindset of defeat and low self-esteem to one of victory, freedom, and peace? There was a time when I saw myself as damaged goods.

  • Like a Lotus

    by Veronica Trunzo
    Veronica seemed to have what so many strive for: a good home, a wonderful fiancé, a well-paying job. But none of that gave her the purpose and joy she longed for. So in 2013, she began a journey of self discovery, adventure, and freedom. Running a guesthouse in dusty and blissful Cambodia; climbing to mountain peaks in Indonesia and Nepal; even getting lost in the depths of Chinese countryside, she learned that the path you choose to follow doesn’t have to be the one laid out in front of you.
  • The Other Computer History

    by Hans Bodmer
    Synopsis. The writer, an elderly man, writes his experiences from the early days of computer science until 2004. At that time, it was not recognized for a long time what a gigantic transformation it will bring in human history. Successes of the IT and thereby also the so usual 'flops' as well as its own will be described as subjectively as possible. It is attempted by non-technical examples and 'parables' and precise translation of the computer-specific terms to make the whole 'thing' for layme... more
