Bedside Manor By Royal L. Craig Delightfully diverse reading THE OFFERING He was still, Like the placid lake in summer when the mountain holds its breath, He was still, Like the fawn down in the high grass where the tiger signals death. THE COURIER AND SHIVA The Lancers must be warned tonight. He smiled and looked at me Its sure to be a nasty fight But first, a cup of tea APRICOT For all the world The poem I need to write Cannot be written. The words I need to say Cannot be said. BLEAKELY HALL An awesome mystery haunts the heart At the sight of an empty house The echo of living dampens the air All but the spirits have fled CANDY When Andy met Candy he thought it was dandy To take her for fine tea and cake. Candy had need and slyly agreed To have their tea by the lake. COAST MAGIC Have you ever stood Where the winding wood Sweeps down to the seamless sea COUNTRY BOY Well, big Jimmy was pulling the plow when it nosed into a split in that rock. There must have been a crack in the blade for it to snap so easily. --- He reared back and took off with the broken plow clanging behind. It chased him all the way to the barn. That was a sight! CREATION In the beginning, this is how it began, So the mystics tell us When there was nothing, There was That, that Is -- ever-existing, How To Tell If Your Really Dead If you find theres no tomorrow, And your friends are draped in sorrow, And you really cant remember last nights binge; You may think that youre in clover But, dear friend, you have passed over, QUESTIONS My mind cried out to the infinite, Tell me of the beginning. A child came, softly singing, He was when there was nothing; Before the ages had their start. Sitting in the garden, Catch Him if you can In the quiet of your heart.

The moon had reached its maximum three times since the Chacoans conquered the First Moon People. The Chaco matrons had built their Great House high atop First Moon Mountain, and their warriors stalked arrogantly through the villages, taking what they pleased. But the gods can only stand so much human arrogance. Cold Bringing Woman, the goddess of winter, calls upon young Ripple to embark on a perilous quest to destroy the hated Chacoans. But Ripple will not face the task alone; he is aided by his stalwart friends: Wrapped Wrist, a short lothario; Spots, scarred at birth, and aide to the frightening witch, Nightshade; and Bad Cast, a simple family man, who will do anything to free his people. But the blessed matrons will brook no insurgency. In retaliation, war chief Leather Hand and his warriors embark on a campaign of terror so gruesome it remains unrivaled in the annals of prehistory. It all comes to a climax atop the mountain we now know as Chimney Rock. In the white light of the lunar maximum, the Pueblo gods will dance—and an empire will be engulfed in flames and mayhem. From New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors W. Michael Gear and Kathleen O'Neal Gear, People of the Moon is a story of North America's Forgotten Past—the battles fought, the heroes made, and the cultures that thrived in America's prehistory.

You will cut through the recovery myths that result in an endless cycle of relapses. It can inspire and motivate you to reach deep inside yourself and awaken the extraordinary powers that nature has bestowed on you as it guides you through a process that transforms cravings for alcohol or drugs into cravings for courage, freedom, honesty, integrity, humility, and peace.

THE ANTIDOTE FOR ADDICTION With more than thirty-five years of continuous sobriety, Kelly presents not a cure but a powerful antidote for addiction, something that counteracts or relieves a harmful or unwanted condition.
