At the turn of the thirteenth century, a tolerant, wealthy, and cultured society blossomed in what is now southwestern France. Occitania was the domain of the Counts of Toulouse. Its people valued... More > poetry, music, and literature over warfare. Their language Occitan, was the lingua franca of the courts of Europe.

I went to Cuba with an open mind, and came back with an inspired heart. I walked in downtown Havana, where colorful troubadours entertained tourists in the square, and I strolled through the village... More > of Cojimar, where Hemingway docked his boat, fished for the big catch, drank rum with locals, and ran guns for the revolution. I ate in wonderful restaurants built into crumbling buildings, and I learned about Cuban culture through the eyes of its talented artists. Cuba is a travel journal, but not in a traditional sense. This book is a collection of photographs, each one presented in a distinct voice, Psalms if you will, the sacred songs that make up Cuba. I often hear people say, "I want to get to Cuba before it changes" But you had better hurry, that change, the new revolution of creative inspiration and expression, free of restraint and politics, has already begun.< Less

A volume of Love, for Lovers. In the spirit of Saint Valentine’s Day and dedicated to the author’s mother and father on the event of their 50th wedding anniversary, ' agάpe [simply... More > love] ' promises to be a unique edition, fully revealing Metzger’s profound romantic side woven throughout and extracted from her six books to date. Often transcribed directly from the eyes and experience of who many have called a romantic existentialist, Metzger’s contemporary perspective is often infused with the sentiment of the troubadour, reflecting that of Chaucer's 14th-Century shift of the religious holiday to a day for romance and courtly love. Comprised of her more positive, hopeful and courtly poems, ' agάpe [simply love] ' exhibits Metzger's fervent belief in, and infallible hope for, the preservation of romantic love in society, spanning 15 years of traveling, observing, and living among different cultures.< Less
The Art of the Story-Teller By Marie L. Shedlock
eBook (ePub): $3.99
The Art of the Story-Teller by Marie L. Shedlock. Storytelling is the conveying of events in words, images, and sounds, often by improvisation or embellishment. Story-telling is almost the oldest... More > art in the world–the first conscious form of literary communication. In the East it still survives, and it is not an uncommon thing to see a crowd at a street corner held by the simple narration of a story. There are signs in the West of a growing interest in this ancient art, and we may yet live to see the renaissance of the troubadours and the minstrels whose appeal will then rival that of the mob orator or itinerant politician. One of the surest signs of a belief in the educational power of the story is its introduction into the curriculum of the training-college and the classes of the elementary and secondary schools. It is just at the time when the imagination is most keen, the mind being unhampered by accumulation of facts, that stories appeal most vividly and are retained for all time.< Less
