This book is a short collection of excerpted poems, prose and haiku taken from the larger collection of my works entitled: Heart, Mind & Soul. I have divided the poems here into three sections to reflect my philosophy that all things in the realm of mankind fall into three categories: The neutral, the counter-productive, and the productive. This book includes my poem: Perfect Woman. A poem that has become quite popular with both male & female readers around the world thanks to the Internet.
The next day the bright light rose Warmed the world below The leafy patterns
painted on invisible surface Began to disappear as the heat was felt The wind still
had its mouth open How long before the beings were warm? The dome had no ...

In the search for meaning, we often travel through the inner caves of being to discover the true value of in our lives. When at last the search turns within, it is there that we find the real guide, and then we can travel the road to mastery. Autumn Leaves Dancing in the Wind is a collection of personal reflections written at a time of search for meaning. There are times in our lives when we search for truth and must delve deeply within to find the true value of life. May the inner wisdom be of assistance to others in times of doubt, of search and uncertainty. If we let our inner wisdom guide, we learn that we already know the source of truth.

A reflective collection of poetry, Fall Leaves Float opens the door to life and invites us into the experiential journey. From the musty feel of an old library brought to life in “Brittle Pages” to the poignant wistfulness of “A Father’s Wish,” poet Darrin Kramer has a unique command of the human condition. He pleads with us to ponder the real meaning and significance of our very existence. We are reminded to appreciate the life we have been given and encouraged to never give up in the face of obstacles. Through his poetic imagery, we are taken on a celestial journey through magnificent visual picture dreams. Fall Leaves Float enables us to visualize what “listening to silence” really means, and we are shown the depth and complexity of love. By filling empty space with thought, light, word, and meaning, Kramer allows us to pause and reflect upon our lives. “Darrin Kramer’s poetry frequently guides you on an unanticipated end point. A person’s facial reflection or twinkling eyes, a kiss, snow in winter or the path of a floating leaf. These are some of the visual images his prose conjures up. His writing style is free, loose, upbuilding and sure to prompt you to continue reading to completion as I did.” —Frankie Gilliam Harrison, physical therapist “Your work conveys lovely thoughts and is very mood-invoking.” —Stephanie Hewitt, customer service

"To read East Wind Melts the Ice is to slip into a time stream that is both as long and sinuous as history and as ephemeral as the present moment. Drawing inspiration from the thousand year old history of Japanese poetic diaries, and form from the ancient Chinese almanac that she uses to contain her musings, Liza Dalby has accomplished the seemingly impossible task of translating the sensibility of the Heian Court of 11th century Japan into the context of contemporary America. The result is a stunning chronicle of the beauty of time passing and an evocation of the transient and whimsical nature of all things."—Ruth Ozeki, author of My Year of Meats and All Over Creation "I imagine Liza Dalby writing this book in an ancient library, a lion sleeping at her side, as in the paintings of Saint Jerome. As she collects and layers arcane and fascinating pieces of knowledge, she builds her own very personal almanac packed with the wonder of loving two cultures, the intense inner life of each season, and boundless curiosity of the scholar/child. This is a book to dip in and out of throughout the year."—Frances Mayes, author of Under the Tuscan Sun "Liza Dalby's memoir of the seasons is as fresh and captivating as springtime. A very special book."—Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore's Dilemma "This beautiful book awakens the senses. A journal, an almanac of the seasons, and a series of reflections on ancient Eastern Chinese and Japanese cultures, here you will find subtle observations of rain and heat, tangerines, mulberries and paulownia trees, crickets and doves forming a rich tapestry as they are woven with evocative fragments of history—stories of geishas, of salesmen who sold bulk fireflies, of the wood that was used for kimono chests, of emptiness in the tea ceremony. Like a lush garden, this book is meant to savor."—Susan Griffin, author of The Book of the Courtesans
The girls turned to walk back to the Fall Festival. New Growth Farm was a vision

Get into the crisp, brisk fall spirit with Autumn the Falling Leaves Fairy! Rachel and Kirsty love the fall! They can't wait to go apple picking, carve pumpkins, and take a hayride. But this fall, everything is going all wrong -- because Autumn the Falling Leaves Fairy's magic is missing! Can the girls help her outsmart Jack Frost and his goblins, and make sure that fall is fun again?
The 'autumn leaves', depend for their movement on something from the outside,
as leaves need wind to fall. This metaphorical use of the 'leaves' thus reveals a
tendency in the self or 'soul' to look outside to gain freedom from its origin.

In contemporary academic literary studies, Lacan is often considered impenetrably obscure, due to the unavailability of his late works, insufficient articulation of his methodologies and sometimes stereotypical use of Lacanian concepts in literary theory. This study aims to integrate Lacan into contemporary literary study by engaging with a broad range of Lacanian theoretical concepts, often for the first time in English, and using them to analyse a range of key texts from different periods. Azari explores Lacan's theory of desire as well as his final theories of lituraterre, littoral, and the sinthome and interrogates a range of poststructuralist interpretive approaches. In the second part of the book, he outlines the variety of ways in which Lacanian theory can be applied to literary texts and offers detailed readings of texts by Shakespeare, Donne, Joyce and Ashbery. This ground-breaking study provides original insights into a number of the most influential intellectual discussions in relation to Lacan and will fill a recognised gap in understanding Lacan and his legacy for literary study and criticism.

If you read one of these stories, you have not read them all, as is the case in a communist country where the state creates an ersatz society of act-alikes who conform to prevailing doctrines. Propaganda is the result. These stories are the result of a life of freedom in our great nation, where freedom, never being put down by the State, is still the expression of mans deepest desires to be like God. Insofar as the unique individual shares creative gifts, he shares one of Gods attributes. These stories, perhaps only one hopefully more, will exalt in that creative spirit.

"Lane Dunlop's translations read elegantly, and his selection of modern Japanese Stories is both fresh and persuasive." —Donald Keene, Japanese scholar, historian, teacher, writer and translator of Japanese literature. The fourteen distinct voices of this collection tell fourteen very different stories spanning sixty years of twentieth-century Japanese literature. They include a nostalgic portrait of an aristocratic Meiji family in Kafu Nagai's "The Fox," a surprisingly cheerful celebration of postwar chaos in Sakaguchi Ango's "One Woman and the War," a chilly assessment of the modern society in Watanabe Junichi's "Invitation to Suicide," and much more. The writers also represent a wide spectrum, from renowned figure of Yasunari Kawabata, winner of the Noble Prize for Literature in 1968, to authors whose works have never before been translated into English. Westerners familiar only with stereotypical images of bowing geisha and dark-suited businessmen will be surprised by the cast of characters translator Lane Dunlop introduces in this anthology. Lovers of fiction and student of Japan are certain to find these stories absorbing, engaging and instructive.

The central figure of this short story is a biker named Montana LeFandra (not his real name). I was about to say "hero" of this story, but, on thinking about it, the shoe doesn't really fit the foot. Though the teller of the story might well see himself as a hero, there's some question about whether others would. Montana swears to God the story is absolutely true. The only trouble I have with his statement is that I'm not at all sure who his God is . or how much of the story he lived himself, heard from someone else, or read about. Montana claimed to be the Founding Father of the Iron Horsemen Motorcycle Club which started out as himself and a bunch of his biker buddies drinking, carousing with women, and spending weekends at various hideaways on the desert and in the mountains of southern California. They had so much fun that the Club gradually grew in size to over two thousand members . and also became a major management problem! How Montana handled it is a story in itself, but what he did after an all-out life and death war with Hell's Angels is another story again . all of it written as faithfully as I can remember it between these two covers.

What is real and what is imaginary has been a problem that puzzled philosophers, scientists,writers and artists since the beginning of time. Nature has inspired the artist to create, the philosopher to debate, the scientist to question and the poet to write. This is what my book is about: birth, youth, maturity and finally death; the cycle of life symbolized by the changing seasons.This book is based on reflections on my own reality.Hopefully the reader would see his/her own reality in my poems and photographs.

whip the dry leaves off branches. As it turns out, falling leaves have little to do
with the cold or wind. In reality, trees throw off their leaves in the fall. According to
