More > introduce them to complex phrasing, challenging words, and metaphorical ideas. This book teaches: 1. The importance of finding your talents and interests and pursuing them. 2. Learning to see life with a renewed interest and wonder. 3. Celebrating love and acknowledging the feelings of one's first teenage 'crush.' 4. How to utilize perspective to see any situation as you wish. 5. The importance of having fun and being a bit silly at times. This is reflected in a 'nonsense' poem I included. 6.

Author's Note: I think it is amazing that I have a book out. There was no sign of my being a poet in any of my schooling, especially in the free world. I flunked all of my English and language... More > classes, and did not pick up reading until I lost my physical freedom. I became a student in life, learning whatever I could, seeking out new things to know and do. This led to my meeting some splendid people, and to reading and studying some fascinating books. I gained a love and appreciation for the arts, for language, and for English. One must love and be love to be real – to walk in your own shoes. I offer these poems of realness with an open heart, mind, and soul. I hope this book inspires you to be you, and to walk in your own realness – to stay real, forever glowing and growing.< Less

Bellahon: The Book of War [Falling Leaves Edition] By Daffyd C. Landegge
eBook (ePub): $0.00
When anyone seeks to learn about strategy and tactics they normally gravitate towards “Sun Tzu’s Art of War” and/or Miyamoto Musashi’s “The Book of Five Rings” (Go... More > Rin No Sho). Both books are masterful pieces that deserve every bit of respect and appreciation, but these two classics barely cover an aspect that is present in every form of warfare…the psychological factor. Don’t get me wrong, both works briefly mention the use of psychological application in warfare but do they also include its use in everyday workings? What about how to use such knowledge to gain the kind of enlightenment they both highly promote, “the knowledge of thy self?” Unfortunately neither one goes into detail about how to acquire “knowing oneself.” And that is where the book “Bellakai-Conryaku” comes in. “Toshikai-Conryaku” is the revision of Musashi’s work. When these two books are compiled together they form “Bellahon: The Book of War.”< Less

An introductory look at acrostics and the Hebrew language leads to an exploration of acrostics in the Bible. How is their existence indicated in Bible translations and can we gain some insight into... More > why they were written and how they exemplified one aspect of the art of the poet? It is not often appreciated that there are fifteen such acrostics in the Old Testament. Their study leads to less frequented parts of the Bible, such as Nahum and Ben Sira (or Ecclesiasticus). The very moving Book of Lamentations is mostly based on the acrostic pattern and this gives useful insights into its interpretation. Nine psalms are acrostics including the most extensive example of Psalm 119. Such an understanding can open up our appreciation of this psalm. The author believes there is a fascination about the Biblical acrostic that is worth preserving and that can shed additional light upon our reading of the scriptures today.< Less

FOR a long time the public have been in want of a work on the art of Distillation and Rectification, couched in such language that every one could appreciate it; and of such size and value that the... More > price, and the time required to read it, would prove the least objectionable. From the best information I can gain, no work has appeared on this subject for many years. Owing to this fact, most of the improvements which have been made in the art have proved of little use to the larger class; and thus things have almost remained stationary with regard to this very important matter, particularly in this country ; which is, indeed, greatly to be lamented, as we are in possession of every thing, in the way of fruits, vegetables, etc.,which have hitherto been used in distillation.< Less
Writings of Athenagoras By Apostle Arne Horn

[A.D. 177.] In placing Athenagoras here, somewhat out of the order usually accepted, I commit no appreciable violence against chronology, and I gain a great advantage for the reader. To some extent... More > we must recognise, in collocation, the principles of affinity and historic growth. Closing up the bright succession of the earlier Apologists, this favourite author affords also a fitting introduction to the great founder of the Alexandrian School, who comes next into view. His work opens the way for Clement’s elaboration of Justin’s claim, that the whole of philosophy is embraced in Christianity. It is charming to find the primal fountains of Christian thought uniting here, to flow on for ever in the widening and deepening channel of Catholic orthodoxy, as it gathers into itself all human culture, and enriches the world with products of regenerated mind, harvested from its overflow into the fields of philosophy and poetry and art and science.< Less
