When I see counselors relapse or abruptly leave a career they trained to enter I always wonder about the triggers they faced that they couldn’t manage without imploding. Our clients and co-workers can put their finger on our unhealed wounds on a regular basis due to our ability to identify with them. In fact, our identification is a mixed blessing. I can draw compassion from my ability to identify. I can also step into my own blind spots and reactivity that may go unchecked without proper support and awareness.

512 pages

Erik Erikson was a German-born American developmental psychologist. One of the most influential theorists of the 20th Century, his greatest innovation was to postulate that social development within humans consisted of eight stages. Erikson saw each stage of development as marked by a conflict for which successful resolution would result in a favorable outcome, and by an important event that this conflict resolves itself around.

In The Final Ride, Donald takes us along on his own eight-ride journey through life. He shares his story; the conflicts, joys, problems and delights, and invites his readers to reflect on their own experience of life’s carousel. Don’s reason for writing this memoir is based on a profound sense of gratitude for a wonderful life made possible by the compassionate care of his and Olivia’s parents; and a burning desire to leave his children and grandchildren with a written message on the importance of faith, love, hope, and courage.

The Languages of Poetry ~ I’ve read somewhere that poets have three languages, the language general to all poetry, the language particular to the age the poet born in, and the language that is uniquely the poet’s own.

In the last eighty years, our language has changed almost as fast as the technology that passes it along. Interestingly, there is a generation, roughly twenty years, between each of the first three Poets Laureate of Santa Clara County. Robert Frost said poets get their knowledge not deliberately, but by letting what will – “stick like burrs” as they “walk in the fields.”

The third language, the one that is uniquely our own, is in part made up the bodies we were born to, the physical voices we were given, and the history of our struggles to make ourselves heard by the world around us beginning surely with parents and teachers. I think you will enjoy the talk gathered in this small volume. ~ Nils Peterson

In 1944 as World War II came to its final stages the desperate need of the Allies and the Axis was for manpower. Casualties were heavy in the last months of the war on both sides. Both sought anyone they could find capable of fighting.

Carl Heintze suddenly found himself  reclassified from limited service (as a “tailor”) to general service, (as a rifleman, basic). He was given the briefest training and sent to Europe as an infantry replacement: a body to fill a gap in ranks left by death or wounds. This memoir is the story of how he succeeded in fulfilling that challenge, of how he made it through seven and a half months of combat, of how he shared in victory, of the men with whom he fought and what happened to them, told as he remembered it eight years later. It is a story rife with pain and endurance, the lot of the infantryman, a 745.

The young members of Pilot Frank Jeter's flight crew took their role in defeating the Japanese one mission and one day at a time.

THIS REMARKABLE WORLD WAR II MEMOIR documents the true story of a Jewish youth from Ukraine who evades death during the Holocaust by joining a transport of non-Jews conscripted for compulsory labor in Germany. Eighteen-year-old Sasha flees from the Nazi-occupied Dubno ghetto days before the mobile killing squads of the SS massacre the remaining Jewish inhabitants. He attempts to save himself by posing as a gentile in the very heart of Hitler’s Germany. Close calls, unexpected challenges, and hair-raising encounters punctuate each day on the run. As he moves from town to town and job to job, Sasha’s quick wit and some twists of fate allow him to survive—at least until the next time. Meeting no other Jews, he fears he may be the only Jew still alive in Europe.

Book 1: No one who grew up during the Depression deserved to suffer children who belonged both to the Baby Boom and X generations, but William and Joan Gallagher did, and did they suffer. How these two fine, moral people produced children who committed larceny, engaged in strange sex, used cremated remains as confetti and got haircuts at the Port Authority Bus Terminal is beyond explanation. Arrogant, tribal, bloodthirsty and sweet, the Gallagher children would only be on each other’s teams, and while seemingly a world apart from their parents, they shared more than heavy eyebrows over gorgeous eyes.
Book 2: Christian Gallagher joins Superior Bodies, a shabby, poorly run gym whose only attractions are that it is owned and operated by gay lovers and is five blocks away from his house. Confident the club will fail without his investment and leadership, Christian buys into the operation and, with the help of Samia Siva, SB’s only female member and his new BFF, turns the place into a high-end gay gym and bathhouse.

WHY BURNING GORGEOUS? Burning can be passionate or corrosive or destructive, but it is always full-force. Gorgeous things are more than beautiful; they seem flawed or even ugly at first, because the new is always dissonant, always strange.

Based on the work of George O. Dragg, deceased master angler and teacher, Anglerobics pokes some fun at various fishing concepts, but also offers sound advice for novice and veteran anglers alike. Where else can one find solutions to overlooked but common problems, like leaky waders, bad snarls, and “appearing unobtrusive”?    Cartoons by Robert Moncrieff

Turning the pages of this book is a step back into small-town life in Northern California. These memorable stories vibrate with nostalgia and warmth as they share the lives of the generations of families living their tears and their laughter in Los Gatos, California. When Steve Sporleder uncovers the trials and triumphs of these characters, they are so real they could be your next-door neighbors.
1) A bucolic 1933 summer day turns tragic at the town swimming hole along Los Gatos Creek, catapulting three young boys toward manhood. 2) A father brings his grieving family back to his roots to heal when a tragedy leaves his son without a mother. His son makes two new friends at middle school and they become entangled in a biker gang's criminal scheme, which leads to murder. 3) Slide on up to the bar and sip a drink while Tilson, the bar owner, and Milky, the bartender, share three tales of their lives and their redemptions. Their post-World War II tales are rich in nostalgia and as cozy as your mother's pot roast on Sunday. 4) An aging Indian chief, feeling that time has passed him by, finds new purpose in his four grandchildren and in teaching them the lessons he has learned from life and nature. 5) A young woman in war-torn Northern Italy harbors a terrible secret. When she marries an Italian-American GI, she leaves behind her painful past and moves to Los Gatos to start anew.

Now, some thirty years later, the truth is closing in on him like a freight train at full speed.  His daily routine is interrupted by a phone call from his older sister, Lydia Webb. Their father, Wendell Webb, has died. Although apathetic about his father, Venice feels obligated to help his sister and uncle with funeral arrangements and estate issues, and he heads back to Los Gatos. In a starting mix of abrupt confessions, resurfacing memories, and disturbing clues, Venice is left to piece together the incidents that have forever marked the Webb family.

“We all live on islands,” a old man counsels in “An Island in the Turquoise Sea,” the opening story in this collection of short stories.  But all islands are not the same. “An Island in the Turquoise Sea” tells of a special island, Kauai, the northern most inhabited of the Hawaiian islands, the first to emerge from the ocean eons ago. Its subject is its natives and its visitors. Once dependent on sugar cane, but now a tourists’ dream Kauai has drawn Heintze to it each year for thirty years. “An Island in the Turquoise Sea” is his tribute to the island. In it Carl describes those who have lived there all their lives and those come for the first time. His stories tell how the island, though seemingly eternal, brings change, of how its trade winds, showers, clouds and surf offer new vistas, new life and new beginnings. Two of these stories are prize winners, but all are bewitching. Like Kauai itself, truly an island in the turquoise sea, they are unique.

Locations took him to interesting places such as a slave market in Marrakech, through an avalanche in Switzerland, and he survived a mob in Yugoslavia.

Where did the FAT go?  Join Cathy and find out how she went from size 22 to size 6 petite. With great wit and colorful anecdotes Cathy shares her experience from beginning to end. Before... I was a 49 year old woman who weighed over 200 lbs and was considered to be morbidly obese. Isn’t that a term? No sugar coating there. Weight wasn’t an issue when I was young. My mother likes to tell the story of how I wore a size 6X until I was twelve years old! As a matter of fact, I had a rather good figure up until I was about 21 years old. Who knows what happened to change everything. After... On my 50th birthday I was in Maui and weighed 121 lbs. It was just 12 days short of my one year anniversary since having gastric bypass surgery. All during the process, I have been asked numerous times, “If I had it to do all over again, would I have had the surgery?“ Well, as with any process, my answer changed along the way.

At the age of 18, wearing a clean pair of jeans with $25 in my pocket, I climbed aboard a German freighter leaving San Francisco on a three year journey around the world. The trip began with me hanging off scaffolding over the Pacific, painting the ship’s hull. In “The Land Down Under”, I roamed the pubs of King’s Cross by night while confronting madmen by day in Australia’s biggest insane asylum.  Arriving in Europe, I began a quest to transform myself into a Frenchman. While working the fields during wine harvest, waiting tables, clerking and cutting lumber, I took up studies at the University of Dijon. I crossed paths with gypsies, con artists, and drug dealers. I also found friends and lovers who showed me new ways of seeing the world.—Richard Lukon

This book is dedicated to those who would like to decode the hymns of Rig-Veda and understand the scientific principles hidden. The Rishis, in a state of super-consciousness, observed the laws of nature and its underlying scientific principles. They presented the observations in hymns with simple words but deep in meaning. "We knew the world would not be the same. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince to do his duty, and to impress him taken on his multi-armed form and says, “if the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst at once into the sky, that would be the splendor of the mighty one. Now I have become Death, the destroyer of worlds.” I suppose we all thought that, one way or another."— Oppenheimer after the success of the Trinity test

Band of Brothers? (Stories based on actual events) They were the dregs, the last manpower left to fight the closing days of World War II. They were the cast-offs of service commands, the Air Force rejects, the college boys the Army had hoarded until then in the Army Specialized Training Program, the 18-year-olds just old enough to be drafted, but not to buy a drink. With inadequate and hasty training these infantry replacements were rushed overseas to fill the gaps in the frontline left by unexpected casualties. Tthe Army had miscalculated. The war had gone on longer than planned; new bodies were needed immediately. These boys learned quickly, and if they didn’t, they became casualties themselves. And by their presence they brought the war in Europe to a close; they created a peace, they began a new world—a world bright with hope yet stained by the past.

The book systematically reveals the origin, cultural practices and belief system of Tujia people, related to each phase of life.Case studies are also used to complement beliefs.  This organization of the book has the potential to engage the reader from the very beginning by starting with the most familiar notions and gradually moving on to specific ethnic group. Contemporary viewpoints are discussed parallel to the findings of the current study.  Color photos and images throughout the book.

Caroline Morrison comes of age during the turbulent war years of the 1940s. The attack on Pearl Harbor shatters the illusion that young women should lead sheltered and protected lives, and women realize they must help the war effort. Caroline is no exception. A civil service exam she takes as a class assignment in her senior year of college leads to an internship in hospital dietetics at Walter Reed Army Medical Center followed by a commission as second lieutenant in the Medical Corps.

September 1944 begins a year of intense training and long hours at Walter Reed in Washington, D.C. Tension and excitement grip the city and the crowded hospital. Caroline finds herself involved in the lives of soldiers severely wounded in the Battle of the Bulge, supervises General Pershing’s meals, encounters the fury of General Patton, celebrates General Eisenhower's success, and sees the spirits of patients lifted by visits from Helen Keller and Eleanor Roosevelt.

In this carefully crafted world of runaways, mystical goddesses, happy strippers, and Marilyn Monroe returned to us to comment on her life being auctioned away, the poet's words nag at us the way only a great seduction can...like liquid pearls falling from the sky above/as soft and easy as a fortune teller's dreams/We are beautiful alone with ourselves/they seem to say/evening snowflakes floating/beneath a fain moon/like fingertips about to touch/a new piano/each sound, each song/a miracle.

The title of "Stopwatch Teacher" refers to Robertson's ingenious use of a stopwatch (which her student's used), to add the spice of competition to their learning. This book is about extraordinary teaching without compromise, written by a master teacher. How one teacher got about 1,000 fourth, fifth, and sixth graders to sit up, listen, and learn, through the use of many innovative techniques. In twenty-five chapters Robertson tells her story, with nugget after nugget of down home insight and dry humor. It is an absolutely wonderful book.

"In this class you will learn to read, write, multiply, and how to find the Sierra Nevada mountain range on a map. By the time we are done you will also know how to run the projector, score a baseball game, play a decent game of chess, give a speech in front of the class, and how to type a book report." Thus began a very unusual fourth grade for about a thousand students, told by Mrs. Robertson herself.

Ray Robertson was a man of many talents, but sitting still was not one of them. He will be remembered best as a businessman perhaps — an entrepreneur who had so much faith in success itself that he was able to take on new business ventures (in some cases with no prior experience), and by recreating himself, make them work. He owned the Polly Prim Bakery in Los Gatos, the Christian Book and Bible Store in San Diego, and the Los Gatos Office Equipment and Supply Co. (two locations) in Los Gatos, CA.

Ray’s asthma became so severe in Hawaii on one occasion that he had to stay inside in air conditioned isolation for two weeks. “Now will you write your biography?” pleaded Edith. She had been imploring him for ages to write his memoirs so his kids and grandkids would know more about their roots. With nothing else to do and with a nagging wife ever present, Ray finally got to work and produced his biography. It was done roughly, with many asides and flashbacks.
