Following My Thumb follows the wandering, rambling, bumbling travels of Gabriel Morris from 1990-2000. In the summer of 1990, at the age of 18, he sets off to Europe with his over-sized backpack, thumb guiding the way. He hitchhikes the entire length of Great Britain, sleeps in barns, on bridges and beaches and under benches, explores the Greek Isles, sneaks into a Parisian movie theater, spends a night at the center of the Place de la Concorde roundabout, and more. In Part 2 of the book, he spends the bulk of the mid-1990s as a wandering traveler back home in the United States, searching for something elusive: a place to call home, a community, love, adventure, meaning, purpose. He both finds and loses all to varying degrees as he attends tribal Rainbow Gatherings in the woods, falls in and out of love on the road, lives on farms and communes, and spends several months in an idyllic valley, far from civilization in the Hawaiian rainforest. The book culminates with his amazing and thought-provoking travels in the mystical land of India.

This book is a very personal account of my life during a two-week period in August of 2005. The timeframe begins one week prior to Hurricane Katrina, through one week after Hurricane Katrina battered the Northern Gulf of Mexico's entire coastline. The date was, August 29, 2005; the day that became my personal, "Defining Moment of Reference". In this book, I will describe the heavy toll of the losses related to my personal relationships that existed at that time, the immeasurable gains of so many new relationships that were forged out of the unexpected human kindness, comfort and love that arose out of the wreckage, and everything that falls somewhere in between all of these things. I will explain how the decisions that I made during this time period, compounded and influenced by the arrival of Hurricane Katrina, affected my life, and the lives of so many people whose existence was intertwined with mine, including, before, during and after this horrific, natural and disastrous event. This is not a story "about" Hurricane Katrina, although the entire event is described in an incredibly descriptive way that will make you feel as though you are there, with us! I lay out some very personal and traumatic details within this book, but I also explain how many negative occurrences have positive counterparts that balance the scales of life, and I take care to tell about all of these things in very honest and explicit terms. I am sure that I will be judged harshly, by some, and praised by others, as a result of releasing such intimate details about who I am and what is important to me, in this book. But none of that matters to me because the story had to be told, and in this book the entire story is told!

If you think your immune system is just a simple thing that only helps you fight off colds and flus, think again. It is, in fact, a highly complex, protective, and intelligent system that can bolster health and healing from head to toe. A number of factors—from your diet, lifestyle, and the illnesses you’ve had to the medications you take or the toxins and people you interact with on a daily basis—can throw your immune system off balance, resulting in excessive inflammation that worsens allergies and pain and can even lead to serious health conditions. Don’t panic: You can feed, nourish, and teach your immune system to work better, which will result in lifelong health. In Ultimate Immunity, experts Drs. Elson Haas and Sondra Barrett guide you through a unique plan aimed at balancing, amplifying, and managing your immune health. Beginning with easy-to-understand explanations of what the immune system is, how it works, and how it fails, then moving on to five important ways to reset it, Ultimate Immunity provides the answers you need. Including diet, exercise, and stress-reduction tips, as well as testimonials from people who used these methods to overcome chronic pain and immune health issues for good, Ultimate Immunity is your guidebook to total health.

Horace: Odes IV and Carmen Saeculare

Horace: Odes IV and Carmen Saeculare

Author: Horace

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

ISBN: 9781316154212

Category: History


View: 674

The Carmen Saeculare was composed and published in 17 BCE as Horace was returning to the genre of lyric which he had abandoned six years earlier; the fourth book of Odes is in part a response to this poem, the only commissioned poem we know from the period. The hardening of the political situation, with the Republic a thing of the past and the Augustan succession in the air, threw the problematic issue of praise into fresh relief, and at the same time provided an impulse towards the nostalgia represented by the poet's private world. Professor Thomas provides an introduction and commentary (the first full commentary in English since the nineteenth century) to each of the poems, exploring their status as separate lyric artefacts and their place in the larger web of the book. The edition is intended primarily for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students, but is also important for scholars.
