Description : The unique quality of this book lies in its autobiographical nature for it's as connected to and isolated from the author as water is from air. This collection consists of four plays in verse, seventeen poems and twenty-five images. Discovery of Fire tells the story of Josephine, a street singer, and Max, a girl runaway and their brief rendezvous. Hyenas on Joy Street the play is an overdue conversation between Shachar and his brother, Diran. Poems, such as Isolation, First Wings and Caring Claudia meditate on love, death and friendship. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Since it's only right to say a few words about who I am and how I got to writing this book this is as good a time as any. Poetry came upon me at around 20 years old when I found it leaking out of me. I began doing Open Mics, so nervous that my knees visibly shook and sweat poured generously from my face. Undaunted, I continued sporadically till my mid twenties. Around this time I discovered that my poems were but character expressions. Once I realized this it was relatively easy to make the transition to playwriting. My first public play, Simultaneous Imagination, was written, and expounded upon, while performing it over the course of a few months. After this production I felt restless and empty and on a whim traveled to Paris, in an attempt to take a break from the work and chaos of New York. In Paris I moved into Serge's painting studio. Upon his request I wrote a play for his space called Discovery of Fire. I didn't know what the hell to write nor did I have as much faith in my work as he did. One day while hanging around his studio we talked a while in his garden and huge powerful roses danced. This drove me to wander away from studio and into Montparnasse. As I wandered around a particular corner I saw smoke billowing from a car. As I approached I saw that the car was in flames and the idea of fire was first born. Intimidated by the vision and meandering thoughts I walked on and into the Montparnasse cemetery. There, listening to Dark Star, I seemed to sleepwalk to Baudelaire's tomb. His Flowers of Evil' were one of the few books I traveled with. When I got to his tomb I sat down and cried, long and confused. After some time, I returned to the studio where Serge told me about his paintings of firemen and his fascination with fire. That night and for the next week I buried myself in my room and didn't emerge until I had Discovery of Fire. Once completed, I was ready to leave Paris and work on the production of this new and foreign piece. In 2001, after rocking the play around town in 2000, I resumed writing and felt increasingly anxious about what seemed like a dead end life in New York. To despise work and just live for the weekends is no life. I moved to Berlin, tearing myself away from a mess of a divorce and a tense relationship with my twin, Diran. Berlin was like rain and fruit after drought. I immersed myself in language learning and began writing Isolation, First Wings and Pure Failure. I landed work as an English teacher and it pleased me but I didn't realize what ill stew was being brewed back in New York. In December 2001 my soul brother, Diran, the man for whom words were superfluous if uncoupled by action, was brutally killed. As can be gleaned in Hyenas on Joy Street, the poems and play, the grief his death caused was cataclysmic. For a long time I was fragile, a smashed pile of blood and fever. Slowly I pieced myself back together with the help of caring friends and students. So, many of my poems stem from this loss yet speak of the will to survive unbearable heartache. Needless to say survival is the name of the game. More recently I've written The Trilogy, A Miller's Tale, and How Sweet.

Description : This book is for anyone who has experienced joy and survived pain, like everyone else. It is a collection of poems that shifts between the viewpoints of spectator and experiencer, examining human reactions and perceptions of life and love through emotional interactions. When we feel, we subconsciously resolve. We navigate existence fragilely as we engage nature and each other. The author poses questions around social behaviours from lenses of personal and borrowed narratives. These story fragments are pulled and stretched in fictitious ways to portray the most vulnerable and complex human expressive energies and tensions.

Description : These meditations on Mary are filled with wisdom and hope. On ordinary days, on Marian holy days, and in times of spiritual and moral challenges, they offer the strength and the consolation that come from a relationship with the Mother of Jesus. Mother Mary Francis, P.C.C., a contemplative Poor Clare nun and an acclaimed spiritual writer, wrote with an intimate familiarity of the Mother of God. To her Mary was real, lovable, and accessible, and her words help the reader to discover that walking with Our Lady day by day is the cause of our unending joy. The book includes reflections for the feasts and solemnities of Mary throughout the year. It incorporates the most cherished Marian prayers of the Church, such as the Rosary, the Litany of Loreto, and the Magnificat. Also included are some of the author's poems and a moving tribute to her life and Marian devotion in the form of a foreword written by her Poor Clare spiritual daughters.

Description : Perception of Joy: A Collection of Inspirational Essays By: Jacinda Downing Author Jacinda Downing sees her book, Perception of Joy as encouragement for women of all ages who have been stripped of their identity and seduced by people who have taken over their lives as they know them. Experiencing trials and errors of her life as a teacher, daughter, wife, and a mother, prompted Downing to write this book to help the women who need it most. About the Author JACINDA ADD DOWNING was born and raised in Lincoln, Delaware. She was raised by her mother, Helena Gibbs, and biological father, Sidney Burton, who later on separated. Although she was a child of a very young mother, not once did her mother regret having her. In the early part of Downing's life, her mother married her stepfather, Hollis Gibbs, and they went on to have two daughters, Zabrina and Kristy Gibbs, an adopted son, Domere Crump Sr., and an adopted daughter, Lacey Pearson-Gibbs. Gibbs helped raise Downing from the age of five until his passing. Downing was taught to be tough and a fighter. She would never back down from a fight. In fact, she would pick the time and place. Throughout school, Downing loved to play softball and field hockey. She graduated from high school in 1985. She then attended a local community college, Delaware Community College, for a couple of years. Downing faithfully worked in several different ministries involving the youth. Downing spent the years of her second marriage in trial and error. She very much wanted to be a wife and a mother, spending these years trying to renew her marriage vows. The more she tried, the more it became broken. During this trial and error in her life, she picked up a pencil and began writing, expressing her thoughts and desires. It wasn't until after her divorce in 2018 that Downing began to grab hold onto the words that were written on paper, then applying God's written words to her life. Downing is the mother of Michael Demarris Bowden, Paige Sierra Downing, and William (Chris) Downing.
