I became homeless after I got out of the Army, so I began walking between towns to search for a new job. Although I wasn't having much luck at finding any work, I soon realized all that hiking and sleeping under the stars seemed to be helping with my symptoms of PTSD. I then decided to walk across America with hopes that it would bring me some sort of healing. Alone and unsupported, I spent the next three years traveling from Tennessee to Delaware, to California, to Florida, to Alaska, back to Florida, and back to California again. This book is a true story that details my experiences.

In 1941, a real estate developer in northwest Detroit faced a dilemma. He needed federal financing for white clients purchasing lots in a new subdivision abutting a community of mostly African Americans. When the banks deemed the development too risky because of potential racial tension, the developer proposed a novel solution. He built a six-foot-tall, one-foot-thick concrete barrier extending from Eight Mile Road south for three city blocks--the infamous Birwood Wall. It changed life in West Eight Mile forever. Gathering personal interviews, family histories, land records and other archival sources, author Gerald Van Dusen tells the story of this isolated black enclave that persevered through all manner of racial barriers and transformed a symbol of discrimination into an expression of hope and perseverance.

"A complicated archeological, cultural, and landscape history of the area around Waconda Spring in north central Kansas... a very engaging narrative of a landscape over time:'ùSterling Evans, Author, Bound in Twine "...conveys an appreciation of the deep background of cultural history and human drama that has surrounded the topic site through the course of over 11,000 years. . . . Blakeslee's work is profound."ùRobert L. Hall, Author, An Archaeology of the Soul: North American Indian Belief and Ritual Most people would not consider north central Kansas' Waconda Lake to be extraordinary. The lake, completed in 1969 by the federal Bureau of Reclamation for flood control, irrigation, and water supply purposes, sits amid a region known for agriculture. Yet, to the native people living in this region in the centuries before Anglo incursion, this was a place of great spiritual power and mystic significance. Waconda Spring, now beneath the waters of the lake, was held as sacred, a place where connection with the spirit world was possible. Nearby, a giant snake symbol carved into the earth by native peoplesùlikely the ancestors of today's Wichitasùsignified a similar place of reverence and totemic power. In Holy Ground, Healing Water: Cultural Landscapes at Waconda Lake, Kansas, anthropologist Donald J. Blakeslee traces the usage and attendant meanings of this area, beginning with prehistoric sites dating between A.D. woo and 1250 and continuing to the present day. Addressing all the sites at Waconda Lake, regardless of age or cultural affiliation, Blakeslee tells a dramatic story that looks back from the humdrum present through the romantic haze of the nineteenth century to an older landscape, one that is more wonderful by far than what the modern imagination can conceive. Students and scholars of cultural anthropology and archaeology, as well as those engaged in Native American studies, environmental history, and regional studies, will derive lasting benefit from Holy Ground, Healing Water.

How does distance healing work? If you have a concept of how a smart phone works you can understand how distance healing works. There is no cord connecting you to the other person, but the evidence is there because you are having a conversation on your phone. We are connected through the sea of quantum fields around us to others by our Light, just like the smart phone. My name is a Light signature and the more I connect the name Alexandra to other Light signatures their Light will sync to mine. You can access Light signatures of others by speaking the encodement of their name (signature). We establish many links in the Field with other's Light signatures when we connect verbally as well as by our thoughts. Those we live with have the strongest Light connection. We have trouble getting over a lost love because of all the strands of Light between us. These strands of Light must be released before we can successfully move into the Light field of another partner. When technology and spirituality get married they give birth to Miracles. Miracles happen in the Field as we distance heal another's Light by allowing the other Light connection to correct. We as the healer are there for the healing to take place; we are the observer in the quantum field. God is the healer! Our belief that healing is possible allows the miracle to happen.

Although Auden has often been hailed as the twentieth century’s master of metre and most outstanding practitioner of traditional poetic forms, his metrical art still remains a mystery, as far as its real significance is concerned. This book sheds new light on the enticing appeal of formal poetry which induced Auden into composing in almost every possible stanza form. In order to work out a ‘new’ appreciative assessment of Auden’s formal art, the book uses Amittai Aviram’s theory of poetic rhythm, which transcends the common literary critical process, based on the rhetorical assessment of rhythm in poetry. Aviram’s theory clearly revolutionises our common methods of interpretation regarding rhythm rather than meaning as the starting point in reading poetry; it is the poem’s ideas and theme which express and strengthen rhythm, not the other way round. Such conception of rhythm, as allegorized by meaning (images and metaphors), breathes new life into the outworn Russian formalist tradition. Turning to Auden’s poetry today may be said to be urged by both literary and political contexts; in an age marked by uncertainties and an upsurge of violence, poetry’s voice, regrettably, reverberates less forcefully, sinking into a state of formal loosening. As such, this book may be said to be prompted by a ‘necessity’ to revive the interest in Auden’s poetry, especially given its recent neglect. A reconsideration of Auden’s conception of the nature of poetry and its status enables us to encrypt his verbal art, assess its multiple effects, and appreciate the metrical range that has helped the poet handle so subtly his twofold inquiry: What is poetry? What is its use?
