More > her. Got through the 50’s while the country went Nuclear and watched Sputnik on a very snowy T.V. We were enlightened by Carl Sagan and the Moon landing in the 60's. The 70’s brought us Watergate, Disco, Lava lamps, gas rationing and “Jaws” where they needed a bigger boat. “Chariots of Fire” was my favorite movie of the 80’s. Carl Lewis and his achievement of equaling Jesse Owens 4 gold medals in one summer Olympics was outstanding. A bright spot in the 90’s was the Hubble telescope and the Digital technology revolution. This book is about none of the above and yet, all of it and more influenced my life and your life through those years. I came out on this side of all that alive and well. This book is about how I managed all that and for my wife and friends and all to remember 'that I was here'.< Less
Our Cruel Demon By Dawn Herbert
Paperback: $9.82
Prints in 3-5 business days
I was on vacation in Egypt in 2008 and I can remember standing at the front of the boat whilst on a Nile-cruise watching the water swirling below. I observed how the water formed white crests upon... More > the surface of the river then disappeared below. It was here I realised that the white crests reminded me of myself. I spent my life fighting to rise to the surface only to be swallowed back into the mass around me. My mass was the Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and depression it would let me rise so far and for so long. Then it would swallow me up in its mass of rituals and negative thoughts. My story uses poems and diary extracts to give you an honest account of how I have battled with the invisible entity I call ‘The Demon’. I am hoping that on reading this book it will help carers and family to understand the cruel mental illness called OCD. Above all I want to help other sufferers to accept their Demon and ask for help without feeling ashamed and embarrassed.< Less

In 1856, in his early thirties, Manet opened... More > his own studio. He began painting in a quasi-realist style, which transitioned to a more Impressionist style when he met the painter Berthe Morisot, who exposed him to her circle of Impressionist painter friends, including Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir.

Although his work was Impressionistic, he resisted involvement with any specific style of painting, and thus preferred to present his works to the Salon of Paris rather than the many Impressionist Exhibitions.< Less
