The author takes on a journey - a journey through his "seventh decade." Reaching the (young) age of 60, he decided to hit the streets to resurrect his long-held passions for both photography and his particular approach to travel. This is a book about getting lost, and about wandering outside one's comfort zone and "turning unknown corners." During this decade, the author breaks his own "walkabout rule" and decides to carry along a "third eye," to capture in a series of photographic images, the "diverse but universal choreography of human behavior" that he encounters on the streets. His images seek to capture that moment - that "brief, blink of an opportunity" - that speaks to its essence, before it "sweeps through, and then disappears again under the current."

"If there’s one thing Reusing understands, it’s the power of a remarkable ingredient." – O Magazine "[A] must-have title for both new and experienced cookes." --Publisher's Weekly (Starred Review) “Her enthusiasm is infectious, her approach, inviting.”—BookPage Top Pick and Cookbook of the Month “I love Andrea Reusing’s Lantern in Chapel Hill. And her recipes in Cooking in the Moment are so approachable and her stories so insightful that they blaze a path toward great home cooking.” —David Chang “I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying many fine meals at Lantern. Andrea Reusing’s food is always fresh, seasonal, and as local as possible. Her recipes are creative and downright delicious.” —John Grisham For Andrea Reusing—an award-winning chef, a leader in the sustainable agriculture movement, and a working mother—“cooking in the moment” simply means focusing on one meal at a time. Tender spring broccoli given a smoky char on the grill, a summer berry pudding with cold cream, or a cider-braised pork shoulder served with pan-fried apples on a frosty night—cooking and eating this way allows food in season to become the foundation of a full life. Cooking in the Moment is a rich, absorbing journey through a year in Reusing’s home kitchen as she cooks for family and friends using ingredients grown nearby. When seasonality is reimagined as a grocery list rather than a limitation, everyday meals become cause for celebration—a whole week of fresh sweet corn; a blue moon autumn asparagus harvest; a rich, spicy soup made with the last few sweet potatoes of winter. Reusing seamlessly blends down-to-earth kitchen advice with delicious, doable recipes, including childhood favorites (chicken and dumplings), simple one-pot dinners (shrimp, pea, and rice stew), as well as feasts to satisfy a crowd (roast fresh ham with cracklings). And while the action takes place in North Carolina, the kinds of producers and places that animate these pages—farmers, ranchers, cheesemakers, butchers, bakers, orchards, backyard henhouses, and fishing holes—can be found all over, producing the flavors that we crave. With gorgeous photography throughout and more than 130 recipes, Cooking in the Moment will inspire cooks everywhere to embrace the flavors and bounty of each season. From the Hardcover edition.

A momenta scant sliver of timeinto which the breath of life may be shared with another. One moment leads to another moment, and a string of moments creates Time. In time we see, we hear, we act, and we judge. We compare, we look for, we establish. Some of the time in excellence; some of the time in mediocrity. Each moment is important to the fullness of time. One moment poorly spent will inflict upon the remainder a taint hard to erase. A moment well spent will endue a lifetime of joy. Ultimately, it is ones life in all its deviations. The observations and the experiences openly shared and confessed in truth and spirit. In the Moment It Is Written! In this moment, I have created a combination of events, thoughts, questions, reflections, and interactions that produce and give greater meaning and a deeper reverence for my personal relationship with GodOur Father. These influences have empowered me with a deeper perception of my purpose, In the Moment.

Spenser in the Moment argues that contrary to anyone’s expectation, Spenser studies may be on the brink of a revolution. Bringing together scholars from three continents, it surveys established methods, and then makes the case that there may be whole worlds of Spenser that have been nearly unsee-able or unhearable in the past forty years.

In the Pride of the Moment

John A. Dussinger argues that the strength of Jane Austen's writing is found in the minute encounters that reveal a character's life rather than in the larger design of the story. In the Pride of the Moment contests the familiar view that Austen's novels are stylistically polished but lacking in substance by showing that they give unusual significance to the most ordinary events. Austen's narrative strategy brings her characters together in an encounter, a radically focused interaction revealing nuances of behavior. The encounter conveys symbolically the participants' attitudes and intentions; and if the nominal activity in the scene is significant in forming political alignments, it also defines the alienation of the individuals outside the frame of reference. Such deliberately choreographed performances reinforce the idea that the principal action in Austen's world is talking. The most immediate quality of such oral communication is the sense of its circumstantial uniqueness, its ability to place a character both as a social-class member and as an individual. When Austen began writing in the 1790s, she had available ample models in Defoe, Richardson, Fielding, Sterne, Smollett, Fanny Burney, Maria Edgeworth, Charlotte Smith, Ann Radcliffe, and many other authors in the Steventon parsonage; but most striking from the first juvenile spoofs to her last, incomplete novel is her radically critical eye toward literary form in general and novelistic discourse in particular. Dussinger asserts that Austen, like these eighteenth-century novelists, found that imitating speech was a form of parody, and she employed it to ridicule affected social behavior as well as such literary fads as Gothic horror. But Austen is the first English novelist to grasp the full implications of parody within the text. Dussinger concludes by entreating Austen readers to listen carefully to how the words are spoken in her novels, for her characters may not be "speaking as they ought." John A. Dussinger is Associate Professor of English at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. He is the author of The Discourse of the Mind in Eighteenth-Century Fiction and several essays on eighteenth-century prose.

Music in the Moment

What is required for a listener to understand a piece of music? Does aural understanding depend upon reflective awareness of musical architecture or large-scale musical structure? Jerrold Levinson thinks not. In contrast to what is commonly assumed, Levinson argues that basic understanding of music only requires properly grounded, present-focused attention, and that virtually everything in the comprehension of extended pieces of music that suggests explicit architectonic awareness can be explained without positing conscious grasp of relationships across broad spans. Levinson rejects the notion that keeping music's large-scale form before the mind is somehow essential to fundamental understanding of it. As evidence, he describes in detail the experience of listening to a wide range of music. He defends, with some qualifications, the views of nineteenth-century musician and psychologist Edmund Gurney, author of The Power of Sound, who argued that musical comprehension requires only attention to the evolution of music from moment to moment. Music theory standardly misapprehends the experience and mindset of most who know and love classical music, concludes Levinson. His book is a defense of the passionate and attentive, though architectonically unconcerned, music listener.

Sometimes we can lose touch with ourselves so much that we don't even know we have done so, until suddenly we realize with a start that we have just been going through the motions, without really experiencing our lives. The simple fact is that in today's world, we spend so much time looking forward, rushing on to the next thing, or looking backwards, stressing and worrying about our perceived mistakes, that we rarely still ourselves and our minds enough to truly be in the present moment. In One-Minute Mindfulness, Simon Parke uses stories and simple thoughts to help us see through clear eyes how we can return to the present moment and remain there. This subtle change can be startlingly healing, bringing peace into every area of our lives, allowing us to live freely and fully, and to honour what is true for each of us. Both inspiring and practical, this book is for anyone who wants to come home to themselves.

Young children live in the here and now. If adults are to make a real difference to their learning they need to seize the moments when children first show curiosity, and support their next steps immediately. This book embraces the concept of planning "in the moment" and emphasises the critical role of the adult in promoting child-led learning, giving early years practitioners the confidence and insight to work and plan in the moment, and enabling the children in their care to live, learn, play and develop in the here and now. Planning in the Moment with Young Children maintains a strong link to practice, providing numerous examples of how practitioners can integrate spontaneous planning and rich adult–child interactions into their everyday practice and early years curricula. From timetabling to setting clear rules, creating enabling environments, keeping records and making use of a variety of materials, the book demonstrates the multitude of ways in which practitioners can encourage child autonomy and respond to the unique needs of each child. Examples from practice are rooted in theory, fully contextualised, and exemplified by original documentation sourced from the author’s own experiences and from a wide variety of settings. Key features include: over 180 full colour photographs to illustrate practice; photocopiable pages including planning sheets, documentation and activity sheets; advice on working with parents, individual children and groups; tailored guidance on working with children at different stages of development from birth to age 6 years; relevance to a range of settings, including childminders, pre-schools, nurseries and schools. When children are allowed to select where, with what, and how to play, they are truly invested in their play, they become deeply involved and make dramatic progress. This book is an outstanding testament to a responsive and child-led way of working in early years environments. Practitioners will be guided, inspired and supported to work spontaneously and reactively – planning as they go and celebrating the results!

Not just another day at the office … or is it? -The surgical technician ducks as a stapler flies past his head during the concluding moments of a lengthy and difficult operation…. -The high-powered, internationally known finance guru seeks to turn fortunes around at the university of which he is now president … and finds himself a leader without followers…. -The powerful satraps silently sabotage the CEO’s desperately needed growth initiative.… These are “moments that cannot be ignored”—events, actions, comments that stop people in their tracks and, in one fell swoop, make it blindingly clear that an organization is stuck and unable to move forward. And they have become regular occurrences in today’s corporations, non-profits, and educational institutions as new forms of work, communication, and technology expose the ways in which an organization’s culture—or “the way we do things around here”—conflicts with new competitive demands. The result: telling incidents—all too visible elephants in the room—that reveal underlying conflicts as well as hidden assets. In The Moment You Can’t Ignore, Malachi O’Connor and Barry Dornfeld tell fascinating “you are there” stories of people and organizations as they encounter and then navigate through and beyond these un-ignorable moments, and show what we can learn from them. They outline the big questions organizations need to ask themselves about identity, leadership, and the capacity to innovate that an understanding of culture can help answer, and deliver powerful insights into recognizing and harnessing hidden assets that point in the direction of a new future. In our age of porous organizations and constant change, The Moment You Can’t Ignore demonstrates that the adage, “culture eats strategy for lunch,” is more relevant now than ever.

"In this rich volume of cultural commentary, Robert Craft's flashing intellect illuminates, communicates, and assesses the thought and genius of half a decade of ferment in the arts. Whether expressing his own precepts or offering his take on the cultural contributions of others, Craft is at his best in these thirty-two essays and reviews that bring to his reader glimpses, insights, first-hand historical contexts, critiques, and studied appreciations from the worlds of painting, music, dance, and literature." "Craft's apparently universal scope provides him with comfortable command, whether the subject is W. H. Auden's and T. S. Eliot's politics, body language in Renaissance painting, the little known (to American audiences) Danish writer Jens Peter Jacobsen and Austrian writer Thomas Bernhard, Martha Graham's boudoir, or authoritative considerations of the music of Schoenberg and Stravinsky. These critiques constitute the kind of reading that challenges and informs while it moves to laughter and to the deepest emotions." "Rounding off this banquet is a small dessert in the form of an interview with Craft, drawing from him his contrast of our own fin de siecle with that of the last century."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
