When she comes into view, I'm awestruck. In this moment, sitting at a grand piano, she's never looked more alive. A Secret Melody is the fourth book in International Bestselling Author Hanleigh Bradley's debut series. My name is Melody Peters and I'm dead. Gosh, that sounds dramatic doesn't it - except I guess you don't get more dramatic than dead. I have been awhile now. I've gotten used to it. I'm well past the acceptance stage. I died when I was sixteen. A car crash. A drunk driver, I think. I'd been on my way home from boarding school with my best friend Abby. But then I'd died. I don't think I was ready to die. I had too many things left to do. Fuck, I hadn't even written a bucket list yet. The one thing I had done? I'd fallen in love. His name was Zach. Zach Mulligan. He wasn't my first boyfriend. Hell, he wasn't even the first boy my big brother caught trying to climb out my bedroom window. Although, he was only the second. I wasn't a complete slag. But he was the first and only boy I ever fell in love with. A Secret Melody is a companion novella to The Rules Series but can be read as a Stand-Alone. "I really loved Melody and Zach’s story.

In The Secret Melody, Trinh Xuan Thuan examines our many attempts to capture the music of nature and hear the cosmic fugue. First, as prelude, he describes the many other cosmologies that preceded the modern Big Bang theory of creation - the magical universe of cavemen, the ancient Chinese idea of the universe (which Thuan compares to a gigantic bureaucracy), the mathematical universe introduced by Pythagoras, and the heliocentric universe of Copernicus - and he explores the work of Galileo, Tycho Brahe, and other early scientists. He then describes in a clear, vivid, and poetic language our current understanding of the cosmos, painting a sharp picture of how modern astronomers study the universe, the equipment they use, the most prominent scientists, and the major discoveries. A mind-boggling portrait of the cosmos emerges in these pages. And, of course, any examination of the origin and nature of the universe inevitably raises philosophical and religious questions, and Thuan examines these issues as well, presenting a provocative case for the anthropic principle (which argues that the universe has been fine-tuned to an extreme precision to produce living creatures with consciousness and intelligence) and illuminating the place of God in a Big Bang cosmology. Here then is an intriguing look at modern cosmology, blending up-to-the-minute descriptions of the forefront of astronomy with thoughtful reflections on science's possible impact on philosophical and religious belief.

What do you do when the perfect boy for you is the one that no one wants you to have? I've had a crush on Ethan, my big brother's best friend, for years. Unfortunately he's totally off limits. My brother is jealous and doesn't want me anywhere near him, my parents don't want me dating a boy in college, and Ethan's ex-girlfriend is a psycho stalker who's liable to lock me in her trunk and bury me out on the beach somewhere. Not that it matters, because Ethan has never treated me as anything except a favorite kid sister. Or at least that's how it was until we moved back to Bayview. Now Ethan isn't looking at me like I'm a kid or his sister. He looks more like a cat about to pounce on a mouse. We've been spending time alone, and I'm pretty sure we almost kissed. But even if I'm not imagining things, it could never work. If my brother found out he'd tell my parents, who'd end it in a hurry. And Olivia would do anything she could to sabotage us. But Delaney came up with the one solution that just might work. You could keep it a secret. It's the only way that Ethan and I have a chance. But secrets always come out in the end.

Writing and Renunciation in Medieval Japan

Writing and Renunciation in Medieval Japan

Chomei's performance of another secret melody , the takuboku , while still at
court , that led to his disgrace and to his decision to take ... According to Bunkidan
, Chomei had received instruction only in the secret melody called the yoshinso .

This is the first monograph-length study in English of Kamo no Chomei, one of the most important literary figures of medieval Japan. Drawing upon a wide range of writings in a variety of genres from the Heian and Kamakura periods, Pandey focuses on the terms kyogen kigo (wild words and fancy phrases), shoji soku nehan (samsara is nirvana), hoben (expedient means), and suki (single-minded devotion to an art). She shows how these terms deployed by writers in an attempt to reconcile literary and artistic activities with a commitment to Buddhism. By locating Chomei within this broad context, the book offers an original reading of his texts, while at the same time casting a light upon intellectual preoccupations that were central to the times.Writing and Renunciation in Medieval Japan is an important contribution to a growing body of work that challenges the rigid distinction between the religious and literary--a distinction that would have made little sense to medieval writers, many of whom were poets as well as priests--and sheds light on the particular ways in which a religio-aesthetic tradition came to be articulated in medieval Japan. Through an examination of records left by Chomei's contemporaries, the book also traces the life of Chomei, particularly his activities as a court poet and the circumstances that led to his taking the tonsure.

A dog's love is one of life's greatest blessings. Your dog doesn't ask you to be anyone other than yourself. When you're with your dog, you don't have to worry about what you say or what you look like; all your canine friend wants is you (and food, and belly rubs, and treats). But dogs are even more than our best friends--they can be our wise teachers, sharing lessons that stay in our hearts forever. Every day, they show us the value of listening and loyalty; what it means to trust and obey; and the importance of just sitting with someone and being a friend. God has given us animals, ultimately, to point us to Himself--to the One who is always there and who loves unconditionally. Pawverbs for a Dog Lover's Heart is a collection of stories with beautiful photographs, each featuring a real-life animal and sharing a principle from the book of Proverbs. You'll not only find inspiring and heartwarming tales, but spiritual truths to touch your heart and remind you of God's unfailing love, wisdom, and grace.
