It can be life changing when you discover that your own thoughts and words play a major role in how joyful your life will be. They determine your successes in life and affect your relationships with others. They are the foundation upon which you base your decisions and establish your own self-worth. In other words, they hold a lot of power. That is good news! That means that your joy in life is not contingent on your outward circumstances. You get to make the decision as to how adverse situations will affect you -- not the other way around. Critical and discouraging remarks do not have to influence you...unless you choose to let them. Your mind is where the battle starts -- and where it can end. Many embarrassing and negative circumstances you face in life are similar to walking with pebbles in your shoes or sitting on an airplane where someone is not wearing deodorant -- annoying, but not life changing. Adversity cannot defeat you, but your response to it can. When you look in the mirror, I want you to see yourself as a treasure to behold...a masterpiece like no other. It is time to start looking forward to your tomorrows and seeing your dreams come back to life. No matter what you are facing today, you can live life with a smile -- knowing that tomorrow may hold the promises you have been waiting for.

“Everything I know about life, I learned from the daily practice of sitting down to write.” From the best-selling author of Devotion and Slow Motion comes a witty, heartfelt, and practical look at the exhilarating and challenging process of storytelling. At once a memoir, meditation on the artistic process, and advice on craft, Still Writing is an intimate and eloquent companion to living a creative life. Through a blend of deeply personal stories about what formed her as a writer, tales from other authors, and a searching look at her own creative process, Shapiro offers her gift to writers everywhere: an elegant guide of hard-won wisdom and advice for staying the course. “The writer’s life requires courage, patience, empathy, openness. It requires the ability to be alone with oneself. Gentle with oneself. To be disciplined, and at the same time, take risks.” Writers—and anyone with an artistic temperament—will find inspiration and comfort in these pages. Offering lessons learned over twenty years of teaching and writing, Shapiro brings her own revealing insights to weave an indispensable almanac for modern writers. Like Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird, Virginia Woolf’s A Writer’s Diary, and Stephen King’s On Writing, Dani Shapiro’s Still Writing is a lodestar for aspiring scribes and an eloquent memoir of the writing life.

Discovered in 1855, Green Lake has been an essential feature within Seattle’s distinctive juxtaposition of landscape architecture and urban expansion, providing recreation and community focus for the last 150 years. Named after the persistent algae bloom that still occurs, the lake is a valuable natural landmark at the center of a neighborhood in transition, and its past is threaded with tenacious organizations and ambitious individuals. From its first homesteader, Erhart “Green Lake John” Saifried, to the vision of the Olmsted brothers, from Guy Phinney’s menagerie to the triumph and tragedy of Helene Madison, from ice-skating to the Aqua Follies, this broad collection of vintage images illustrates a bygone era and provides a unique perspective on community values and ecological struggle.
