Blessed.That was me.In every way that mattered anyway. I had a close, loving relationship with my parents, my older brother was my hero, and with graduation right around the corner, I was on the verge of turning my love of photography into a career.Then there was Carter, surprisingly he turned out to be the yin to my yang. Where I was alternative, slightly nerdy and a whole lot awkward, Carter was smooth, popular and confidant. Yet somehow, we fit. Or so I thought.With the events of one night, the clarity with which I once saw my life vanished. Leaving me completely unprepared for the reality I would now have to face and the choices that accompanied it.

Moments of Clarity

And each had their own intensely personal moment that signaled a Before and an After. The histories gathered here are the recollections of lives snatched back from the brink of a precipice so wide and deep it threatened to engulf them.

Christopher Kennedy Lawford’s New York Times bestselling memoir, Symptoms of Withdrawal, offered readers a startling, first-hand look at his own addictions to drugs and alcohol, prompting People magazine to write, “Few have written so well about the joy of drugs, and few are as unsparing about their drug-driven selfishness.” In his bestselling follow-up, Moments of Clarity, Lawford presents “Voices from the Front Lines of Addiction and Recovery.” With contributions from Tom Arnold, Alec Baldwin, Meredith Baxter, Jamie Lee Curtis, Richard Dreyfuss, Anthony Hopkins and many others, Moments of Clarity is an important addition to the literature of recovery.

People in many cultures have long been aware of themselves as having a spirit as well as body and as being influenced by spiritual energies and spiritual prescences. Nurses know that something exists beyond the day-to-day care of people. Nurses are with people in time of crisis, when the mind turns to thoughts of what exists beyond. When a nurse can help someone to confront issues of doubt and belief, the sense of fulfilment explains why nurses do what they do. Spirituality: The Heart of Nursing is written by Australia nurses, from their own experience, for the benefit of other nurses. The message of the book is that nurses are special people concious that our spiritual well-being is just as important as our physical health.

Poetry. African American Studies. David Sutherland has received a Rhysling Award, a Small Press Writer's Award, and was a recent nominated for a Pushcart Prize in Poetry. In his introduction to this volume, Paul Kloppenborg calls STEEL UMBRELLAS a brilliant collectoin of striking poems written with language at full stretch... redefining language within its emotional and conceptual brackets and breaking out beyond the plain inferences of words into broader perceptions symbolic of human feeling. Clearly, Sutherland means to take on and redefine the tradition. In one poem, he encants Ezra Pound: Ezra I ring no glow, cast no light off your high cantos,/ Neither take stock of your fundamental passions with impetus....// Venus abides beneath burnt dock lights,/ Li Po hides in the heat of gridlock and jealous gods of you/ Act ply the timber of your craft -- as all too soon/ The wood is carved (from Pound). David Sutherland's verse comes at you like a twelve foot tidal wave. His words engulf you, plunge you into a deep state of hal

What was Eli Shaffner thinking? He had it all. An attractive, intelligent girlfriend, a wealthy family, the perks of privilege. He had the opportunity to build the kind of life most people can only dream about. But a few obstacles got in his way -- lust, pride, a high-minded sense of professional purpose, and a profound aversion to living like the rich, guilt-ridden Jews he felt surrounded by. So Eli, a Chicago-area tennis pro with a thirst for philosophy, a commitment to Yoga, and a passion for an exotic beauty named Malaika, decides to throw it all away and build a life on his own terms, a task that will prove far more difficult, and dangerous, than he could ever have predicted. In the darkly comic tradition of Saul Bellow and Philip Roth, Moments of Doubt is the emotionally charged account of how a man makes his way through passion, pain, and paradox toward the cathartic realization that sometimes, in the end, the very things you thought were destroying your life prove to be the only things that can make,you happy.
