It was just to be a quiet weekend on the Bay! Yes, just a small intimate Thanksgiving dinner with family and a few friends. Yeah, Right!!! The tidal wave of insanity that blew in turned our peaceful holiday setting into a geriatric celebration filled with humor and mishaps. Our last minute guests, while nearing the sunset of their lives, managed to create the most outrageous, memorable, Razzle-Dazzle Thanksgiving for all of us. In this true story of embracing generations and holiday pandemonium you will laugh, you may shed a tear, but you are guaranteed to be entertained by the antics of the “Gang of Five.” As you follow their twilight years and the trials and tribulations of their concluding adventures, our special guests will leave a lasting impression on you, as they did on all of us.
If truth can set us free, where do we find it? In The First and Last Freedom, Krishnamurti argues that we will not find truth in formal institutions, nor in organised religions and their dogmas, nor in any guru or outside authority; for, according to Krishnamurti, truth can only be realised through self-understanding. Controversial and challenging, yet always enlightening, Krishnamurti guides us through society’s common concerns, such as suffering and fear, love and loneliness, sex and death, the meaning of life, the nature of God, and personal transformation - consistently relating these topics to the essential search for pure truth and perfect freedom. This classic philosophical and spiritual study offers wisdom and insights particularly suited to our own uncertain times.
Encompassing the period from the Neolithic era to the troubled present, this book studies the peoples, societies and cultures of the area situated between the Adriatic Sea in the west and the Black Sea in the east, between the Alpine region and Danube basin in the north and the Aegean Sea in the south. This is not a conventional history of the Balkans. Drawing upon archaeology, anthropology, economics, psychology and linguistics as well as history, the author has attempted a "total history" that integrates as many as possible of the avenues and categories of the Balkan experience.
A radical new translation of the New Testament Gospels of Mark and John, this book also includes the three Biblical letters written by John, the Elder, plus the first letter attributed to Peter, which, as Peter himself acknowledges in his postscript, was actually written by Silvanus. One of many innovations in this new translation, is that for the first time in 1,800 years, all Scripture references made by the evangelists have been traced back to the Greek Septuagint which they actually quoted, not the correct Hebrew text which most theologians think they should have used. Some of the differences are quite startling.
The many thoughts and gratifying memories recounted in this volume began in 1924 and ended in 2013. The memories are of the author’s development as a songwriter and the many talented and likeable people he got to know. The locale is mainly New York City, with important time spent as a composer at a Catskill Mountain resort. Many of the thoughts are about the changing popular music scene in America.
Many authors throughout history have presented their religious beliefs in written form, and H. G. wells is no exception. Within this fascinating volume, Wells covers everything from inter personal relationships to military attitude. He begins with his ideas concerning metaphysics, beliefs, and general conduct; with the latter part of the book dealing with “personal things”. Contents include: "The Back Of Miss Bathwick And George Boon", "Being The First Chapter Of 'The Mind Of The Race'", "The Great Slump, The Revival Of Letters, And The Garden By The Sea", "Of Art, Of Literature, Of Mr Henry James", et cetera. Herbert George Wells (1866 – 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as “The Time Machine” (1895), “The Invisible Man” (1897), and “The War of the Worlds” (1898). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author. First published in 1915.
