Diese Sammlung schliesst sich an “Zoom” an. Dort hiess es: “In dieser losen und nicht chronologischen Folge sind meine Wanderungen durch Länder, Bücher und Veranstaltungen beschrieben. Tagebuchartig werden Bruchstücke, Einfälle, Blogeinträge, Wettbewerbsbeiträge, Träume, Gedankenfetzen und Imaginationen kompiliert.”
Sollte etwas doppelt vorkommen, so ist das Absicht.

“Alles, was einem erzählt wird, verleibt sich uns ein, wird Teil unseres Bewusstseins, selbst wenn man es nicht glaubt.” (Marías, Javier, Die sterblich Verliebten)

“My brother! I am a town-crow, not a village-crow.” (Rudyard Kipling, Kim)

Learning From Bees: a philosophy of natural beekeeping
Learning From Bees: a philosophy of natural beekeeping
by Philip Chandler Rating: 5.0

A collection of short essays on bees and beekeeping by the author of The Barefoot Beekeeper.

The author's first book set out a challenge to the world of conventional beekeeping and offered an alternative paradigm. It soon became apparent that other people had been thinking along similar lines, and when bees were headlined month after month in the national press, following the outbreak of so-called 'colony collapse disorder' in the USA, many more people became interested in bees and what became known as the 'natural beekeeping' movement began to emerge.

Our challenge now is to re-negotiate our relationship with bees: we must learn to protect and nurture them, rather than simply exploit them, and we need to learn to listen to what they need from us.

Person to Person: Essays from Two Centuries
Person to Person: Essays from Two Centuries
by Philip Vassallo Rating: 0.0

In "Person to Person: Essays from Two Centuries," educator, poet, and playwright Philip Vassallo writes 26 essays on his abiding passions: theater, communication, society, literature, film, education, sports--often finding unique links between them. This collection spans the last decade of the twentieth and first decade of the twenty-first centuries, as the author worked as a reporter, columnist, professor, and artist for diverse organizations in the New York metropolitan area. In this volume, he writes on an impressive range of issues, including race relations, eating disorders, childcare, criminal law, school choice, the environment, cinema, playwriting, and literary biography. His line of thought varies as broadly as his interests, and his conclusions can be surprising.

Frazzled
Frazzled
by Peter Johansen Rating: 0.0

GAP analysis methods endeavor toward developing visionary solutions to complex problems by bifurcating or simplifying the problem into measurable steps. The combined thesis ‘Economic Perils of the Middle-Aged American Worker’ and ‘The Forgotten Graveyard Worker’ attempts toward accomplishing solutions toward a complex problem. For instance, the middle-aged worker being 40 to 75 encounters many hiring challenges created by mythical or psychic superstitions, which eventually develop into lifeline challenges. In addition, ‘The Forgotten Graveyard Worker’ encounters humanistic challenges combined with company disguises. Unfortunately, creating humanistic challenges such as cancer expand into pre-existing conditions and former company denials. Hence, the combined thesis attempts to create awareness to ongoing confrontational humanistic events.

The Unmotivated Collection
The Unmotivated Collection
by David Stoddard Rating: 0.0

This ebook is a collection of 3 previously written ebooks from my past life where helping folks get off their tails and into doing something (that didn’t necessarily involve them getting off their tails) was of vital importance. (and yes, I understand the term previously written was unnecessary). The three ebooks are “In Search of Ourselves,” “The Time For Me Is Now” and “A Time For Us” They were years in the making. Ok, “In Search Of Ourselves” was done in a week, but still, years later it still makes sense.

“In Search Of Ourselves” is based on our usual thoughts that we know what we don’t want, but may not quite be able to announce to the world around us who we are or what we do want.

“A Time For Us” somewhat branched off from In Search Of in that it carried the idea of finding out what we wanted to a new level in somewhat workbook form.

“The Time For Me Is Now” is/was a collection of previous columns from 2001-2004ish. It didn’t really have an over-riding theme other than they were a collection of letters, which formed words, with the stretched into sentences and then paragraphs. I was as shocked as you that mose of them went on so well. But I guess something like that is bound to happen.

This collection is not nearly as hysterical as this overview has been. It was written with a different frame of mind and goals in mind. So that’s why it’s being offered out here once again in hopes of those who print it out can provide necessary materials for birds who are in cages have their own understood place to leave their droppings when required.
