  • How do We get to Greenwitch Village from Here?

    by A.E. Grant

    This is the tale of my misadventures in New York City. During the recession of 2008 I lived in the Upper East Side, in one of the wealthiest zip codes in Manhattan and struggled to keep the lights on while working as a hotel concierge. I witnessed how my wealthy neighbors lived and experienced what it was like to be the help in the toughest job market in the country. This period in my life was humbling, yet invaluable to my personal development. I like to refer to it as New York City Boot... more

  • Listen to Your Mother!

    by Marianne Spampinato
    Don't play with your food. Don't talk to or take rides from strangers. If your friends jumped in a lake, would you? Pick up after yourself and put things back where you found them.

Chances are your mom (or dad) has said one or more of these sayings. Take a trip down memory lane with the author's humorous and heartfelt recollections of guidance... more
  • our road to adoption 'the story of our family and the great family of God'

    by Earl D Robinson
    The book chronicles our adoption process which spanned many years and the Atlantic as Americans living in the UK. During the whole process I blogged and the book is a combination of the blog, reflection and Biblical perspective of family and adoption. Our path to adoption was a long and winding one. It was full of excitement, amazing news and quick moving decisions. It was also fraught with difficulty, waiting and at times sadness. We were never alone in the quest, our families, churches and... more

It is based on extensive family documents as well as health records and other research and gives a no-holds-barred look at mental illness. It is a cautionary but in the end a hopeful tale as even the effects of a lobotomy can be miti... more

  • Haloes are for Show-Offs: revised second edition

    by Richard Holeman
    "He travels fastest who travels alone." In my time on the road, I came to believe so much in that wise old idiom that it became the core of my code. I didn’t pair up with other tramps, except a few times in the earliest days of my travels. "Carry no money belt, no bag, no shoes; and greet no one on the way." That one's from the Bible and it's good advice. I kept to myself as much as I could, on the road and in the fields and forests where I camped, but when I woke one morning to find... more
