Dark Days  Bright Nights

She said, “If I'm not welcomed here how come I was here last night?” I got upset about that and packed my bags and bounced. There's an Alcoholics Anonymous club near Jones and Sahara, and at the time there was nothing behind it.

A vivid and enlightening oral account of homelessness in the Las Vegas storm drains and the hard work of re-entering mainstream society. Are you aware that hundreds of people live underground in the flood channels of Las Vegas? Few people were until Matthew O'Brien grabbed a flashlight, tape recorder, and expandable baton for protection and explored the storm-drain system in depth. This research resulted in his landmark book Beneath the Neon. Now the drains have been covered by CNN, Fox News, NPR, Dr. Phil, the New York Times, the BBC, Al Jazeera, and many other media outlets. They have even found their way on to popular TV shows, including CSI, Criminal Minds, and into mainstream movies. But the fact that several of these drug- and gambling-addicted tunnel dwellers have clawed their way out of the drains and turned around their lives has received far less attention. Dark Days, Bright Nights shares their harrowing stories and provides a unique perspective on one of America's most fascinating cities. It also paints a larger picture of homelessness and recovery in America. These stories are the happy (though not Hollywood) ending to the infamous tunnel tale. The narrative is complemented by bios and stark, black-and-white images of the survivors, putting a scarred, knowing face to the unblinkingly honest accounts.

The Civil Rights Movement is now remembered as a long-lost era, which came to an end along with the idealism of the 1960s. In Dark Days, Bright Nights, acclaimed scholar Peniel E. Joseph puts this pat assessment to the test, showing the 60s -- particularly the tumultuous period after the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act -- to be the catalyst of a movement that culminated in the inauguration of Barack Obama. Joseph argues that the 1965 Voting Rights Act burst a dam holding back radical democratic impulses. This political explosion initially took the form of the Black Power Movement, conventionally adjudged a failure. Joseph resurrects the movement to elucidate its unfairly forgotten achievements. Told through the lives of activists, intellectuals, and artists, including Malcolm X, Huey P. Newton, Amiri Baraka, Tupac Shakur, and Barack Obama, Dark Days, Bright Nights will make coherent a fraught half-century of struggle, reassessing its impact on American democracy and the larger world.

"I would go into the deeps a hundred times to cheer a downcast spirit; it is good for me to have been afflicted that I might know how to speak a word in season to one that is weary." --Charles Spurgeon Millions read the words of the great nineteenth-century preacher Charles Spurgeon without knowing that his ministry succeeded during seasons of overwhelming emotional pain.

These poems came about due to being incarcerated. These poems have helped me escape the reality of life. Many poems express how one person feeling about someone or something. Some of my poems have a feeling of a dark side. Others express a kind, caring and loving side. Facing daily challenges has giving me the inspiration to express my feelings and thoughts. Others, also have inspired me to write these poems, which is my way of expressing myself. Many write poems to the special someone or express the anger or saddness. These poems express struggle, solitude, and emotional strings being pulled in many directions. These poems have also helped me escape the reality of prison. What I have felt soon enough helped me bring them to paper as a poem. As you, the reader, I hope you feel what I felt as I wrote them.

Gary Gayner was a member of ‘Jack’, a successful pop band from Bristol. In 1977 music agent Barry Sullivan took the band to London, promising to make them national stars under the name of ‘The National Smile Band’. This is a story of youthful ambition, of hopes raised and ultimately dashed, and the fickle world of pop. Funny, wistful, nostalgic and sad this true story is a gripping read as the fortunes of the band rise and fall, to a stunning conclusion. ‘Bright Lights Dark Days’ tells the true story of five school friends from working class Bristol who want the fame, riches and adulation of pop stars. Self-taught musicians they find success on the local pub and club scene before being spotted by London’s leading music agent. What follows is a roller coaster ride as the band’s ambitions seem near to fulfilment only to recede again. With a strong cast of characters that includes household names such as Paul McCartney and Freddie Mercury, the book describes the glamorous but seedy pop world of 1970s London. But it is really about the hopes and ambitions of starry-eyed youth, dashed by a cynical world. Band member Gary Gayner has been driven to tell this extraordinary story. It will appeal to anyone who can remember the 1970s, to those interested in the music scene, but above all to anyone who loves to be gripped by a good read. This is no gilded, happy, recollection. Although light-hearted at times Gary is brutally honest about his feelings as deceit followed flattery, as relationships fell apart under the strain, and as his eyes were opened to a world that, in his youthful naivety, he did not know existed. This unvarnished, open-hearted, honesty makes ‘Bright Light Dark Days’ a powerful as well as an entertaining read.

This book The Gem-In-Eye was created with you in mind. As it speaks to you, teaches you and learns you to help show you self. These choice words in the book were chosen in particular to reach a vast audience for comprehensive understanding. Stephen Tyler's book is about the developing psyche of "man" in general; through the eyes of many. It speaks upon issues of infidelity, drama and many other common things taken for granted in life; that we fail to pay attention to the things we really think we do take heed to. It's all about being aware, not just of self but mastering that does help first. Not all of us are wordy, speak proper etiquette nor listen to think. This is the reason why a misunderstanding, violence or tensions arise. The gem-in-I takes away the cowardness, the ego, the pride, the lies and the untold truths. Being stripped to a bare where there is nothing left to face but the truth of self. Because once you start learning who you are and why these factor in as principles and habits that allow you to be a better you. He used to think that those he loved were going to grow old, die and or just disappear. Stephen did not need to hurt others and himself no more by distancing. Instead, he sat down and evaluated his character and realized who he is and what he is afraid of. Stephen, now a more empathetic person who speaks less and hears more. Life is way too short to sulk. Not only are we dying physically but most are dead mentally walking. We need care, attention to detail, love, devotion and respect in order to create and innate harmony. Harmony is the gem-in-I's message to all to ascend. For we may not agree yet we can understand and become more empathetic on situations which allows us to grow vehemently. May this book bring you a sense of clarity, wellness and thoughts of love for it was created in that purpose.
