"Letting Go and New Beginnings: A Mother's Poetic Journey" is a compelling, personal story told through insightful, accessible poetry and evocative photographs in support of parents whose teens are leaving home. Intended to encourage family understanding, heal rifts, and ease the pain of separation, it gives voice to a swirling complexity of emotions. Sharing these sometimes funny, sometimes bittersweet poems may help family relationships grow closer, deeper, and richer. You may also become more aware of how your parents felt in letting you go.International Book Award Finalist, (E-Book Autobiography/ Biography/ Memoir)Global E-Book Awards Honorable Mention, (Parenting/ Family Non-Fiction)"It's the story of loving and letting go, the bittersweet feeling all parents feel, all people feel when our cherished ones start to move on. I found the poems to be beautiful and timely-mirroring the transition I find myself in now-letting go, new beginnings. I also love how the imagery of the photographs expresses and compliments the intentions of the poems."-Karen Gottlieb"...very reflective and takes some of us back on our own journey, yet inspirational for those about to embark on the journey. There was a section 'to my daughter' that I clipped for my daughter to read. I also found myself laughing out loud as I read some parts. Well done!"-Lena Dobbs-Johnson"Margaret's poems are always personal, yet universal, in that any sensitive reader will be able to identify with the thoughts they embody ... lyrical ... concise and still as elaborate as prose .... This particular anthology focuses on letting go of your children 'when their hours are no longer woven into the fabric of your days.' [She] not just gives voice to feelings that are often repressed, but sincerely seeks to heal. Above all this is a labor of love from a...loving mother, adorned with words from the heart and simple photographs that complement the words beautifully. I highly recommend this book... to all sensitive readers who are working on letting go in any way."-Pramod UdayA Poem From "Letting Go and New Beginnings":2/24/08After You LeftConstantlyI am watching out for you.Even when I am not watching,I am watching.I cannot say why this is trueor when it began,it feels like forevermy love.So do me a great favorand become...not less carefreenor less careless,nor even more careful,for being full of careis not it exactly.Be more aware of your choices,more in tune with your inner wisdom.For you are wise dear one.And if I am selfishand want you to stay with mewhen it is clearly time to go,forgive... and go.Call me when you arrive.I will be waiting.Margaret Dubay Mikus(c) 2008

I have found that writing was my therapy to ease the pain or confusion or even joy that I couldnt express to others. I closed myself to others about my feelings for a very long time, so writing was my escape to avoid being judged. The paper never judged me, so I vented as much as I could. I found my joy in writing in middle school, but I decided to document my poems around my freshman year of high school. This book is of about ten years of my personal feelings, experiences or just inspiration. For the first time Im allowing people to come into my personal world, exposing myself in a way Ive never thought I ever would.

Fearless Living and Loving guides readers through a journey of self-discovery. Its uplifting stories offer a new way to perceive the world, and its timeless lessons empower Christians to make positive, life-changing choices. As we endure hardships, questions arise. Has God given up on me? How can I gain more courage and strength? How can I find lasting inner peace? Fearless Living and Loving explores these concerns as it presents the transforming ministry of Christ in a way that everyone can understand. Jesus affirmed that, as our love grows, we are better equipped to overcome adversity. And as our faith grows, we are able to let go of worry and doubt. In times of sickness or decline, people want to feel safe and loved. In times of pain or distress, people seek to learn more about life’s meaning and purpose. And in times of loss or sadness, people strive to maintain hope. These existential truths are found in every part of the world. Yet, by inviting God’s love into our hearts, we can be ready for life’s biggest challenges. And by embracing the Light of Christ, we can live and love without fear. Praise for Fearless Living and Loving: “Heart-warming, healing, and inspirational. I look at my life in a completely different way.” —Melinda Crowley, licensed caregiver “I’ve found my center again. A real gem!” —JoAnne Dole, registered nurse “Uplifting lessons which help us find peace in every moment.” —Dr. Susan Berner, physician “Comfort at a time when my life was turned upside down.” —Mary Newman, massage therapist “Insightful and thought-provoking. A powerful presentation of Christ’s teachings!” —Rev. Julie Keene, pastor “Complex issues explained so that everyone can grasp them. A great gift!” —Tomek Ossoski, transitional care administrator

Kirk has his work cut out for him, even as he unexpectedly runs into a disturbing figure from his past: Lenore Karidian.

It began with one question... A response came... An intimate dialog followed. No concern was too silly. No challenge was too big. This engaging book captures it all. What was God thinking?! picks up a dialog that Sandy began in her first book, Congratulations... It's an Angel, where she shared the clarity and understanding she received after asking heartfelt questions of God, following the loss of her one month old daughter. As this beautiful, healing and thought-provoking conversation unfolds, Sandy shares, not only her challenges, but those of so many, around the themes of loss, relationships, finances, fear, truth and self-esteem. The more she questions, the more profoundly the answers come, and Sandy herself, is in awe as the journey back to love is revealed and simple truths about why we're here, the purpose of life, and the possibilities of peace on earth become the pages of this book. What was God thinking?! is a dialog of inspiration for anyone who's ever wondered.

Collected for the first time, the New York stories of John O'Hara, "among the greatest short story writers in English, or in any other language" (Brendan Gill, Here at The New Yorker) Collected for the first time, here are the New York stories of one of the twentieth century’s definitive chroniclers of the city—the speakeasies and highballs, social climbers and cinema stars, mistresses and powerbrokers, unsparingly observed by a popular American master of realism. Spanning his four-decade career, these more than thirty refreshingly frank, sparely written stories are among John O’Hara’s finest work, exploring the materialist aspirations and sexual exploits of flawed, prodigally human characters and showcasing the snappy dialogue, telling details and ironic narrative twists that made him the most-published short story writer in the history of the New Yorker. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines.
