* 'This refreshing, unusual book needs to exist. A culture shift which repositions a single person as someone who is relationship-free, complete, and not lacking is long overdue.' - The i * Having a secret single freak-out? Feeling the red, heart-shaped urgency intensify as the years roll on by? Oh hi! You're in the right place. Over half of Brits aged 25-44 are now single. It's become the norm to remain solo until much later in life, given the average marriage ages of 35 (women) and 38 (men). Many of us are choosing never to marry at all. But society, films, song lyrics and our parents are adamant that a happy ending has to be couple-shaped. That we're incomplete without an 'other half'*, like a bisected panto pony. Cue: single sorrow. Dating like it's a job. Spending half our lives waiting for somebody-we-fancy to text us back. Feeling haunted by the terms 'spinster' or 'confirmed bachelor.' Catherine Gray took a whole year off dating to find single satisfaction. She lifted the lid on the reasons behind the global single revolution, explored the bizarre ways cultures single-shame, detached from 'all the good ones are gone!' panic and debunked the myth that married people are much happier. Let's start the reverse brainwash, in order to locate - and luxuriate in - single happiness. Are you in? *Spoiler: you're already whole PRAISE FOR CATHERINE GRAY'S WRITING: "Fascinating."

"Ten Thousand Sorrows & Ten Thousand Joys offers a vision of lives well-led, and of love in the thick of crisis and loss. Beyond inspiring."-Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence "This beautiful book is unlike any other personal account of living with Alzheimer's disease that I have ever read . . . it offers patients and families practical insights into how they can live their lives more fully amidst the heartbreak of a mind-robbing illness."- Paul Raia, Director of Patient Care and Family Support, Alzheimer's Association, Massachusetts Chapter "A story of courage, love, and growing wisdom in the face of Alzheimer's."-Joseph Goldstein, author of One Dharma, Founder / Director of Insight Meditation Society In this profound and courageous memoir, Olivia Ames Hoblitzelle describes how her husband's Alzheimer's diagnosis at the age of seventy-two challenged them to live the spiritual teachings they had embraced during the course of their life together. Following a midlife career shift, Harrison Hobliztelle, or Hob as he was called, a former professor of comparative literature at Barnard, Columbia, and Brandeis University, became a family therapist and was ordained a Dharmacharya (senior teacher) by Thich Nhat Hanh. Hob comes to life in these pages as an incredibly funny and brilliant man who never stopped enjoying a good philosophical conversation-even as his mind, quite literally, slipped away from him. And yet when they first heard the diagnosis, Olivia and Hob's initial reaction was to cling desperately to the life they had had. But everything had changed, and they knew that the only answer was to greet this last phase of Hob's life consciously and lovingly. Ten Thousand Joys & Ten Thousand Sorrows provides a wise and compassionate vision for maintaining hope and grace in the face of life's greatest challenges. (This memoir was originally self-published as The Majesty of Your Loving.)

Named after John Profumo, Secretary of State for War, the Profumo Affair was the biggest British political scandal of 1963. His affair with Christine Keeler, the reputed mistress of an alleged Soviet spy, followed by his lying in the House of Commons when he was questioned about it, forced the resignation of Profumo and damaged the reputation of Prime Minister Harold Macmillan's government. Here, John Lawton explores how the scandal evolved and the effect it had upon the population of an increasingly liberated Britain. Unholy Joy went on to become the basis for a novel. A Little White Death has its roots in the Profumo affair, the correspondences will be apparent to the reader... but the 'buds and leaves' are Lawton's fiction. This kindle edition includes an extract from A Little White Death.

Tragedy Recognition and the Death of God

Hegel and Nietzsche are two of the most important figures in philosophy and religion. Robert R. Williams challenges the view that they are mutually exclusive. He identifies four areas of convergence. First, Hegel and Nietzsche express and define modern interest in tragedy as a philosophical topic. Each seeks to correct the traditional philosophical and theological suppression of a tragic view of existence. This suppression of the tragic is required by the moral vision of the world, both in the tradition and in Kant's practical philosophy and its postulates. For both Hegel and Nietzsche, the moral vision of the world is a projection of spurious, life-negating values that Nietzsche calls the ascetic ideal, and that Hegel identifies as the spurious infinite. The moral God is the enforcer of morality. Second, while acknowledging a tragic dimension of existence, Hegel and Nietzsche nevertheless affirm that existence is good in spite of suffering. Both affirm a vision of human freedom as open to otherness and requiring recognition and community. Struggle and contestation have affirmative significance for both. Third, while the moral God is dead, this does not put an end to the God-question. Theology must incorporate the death of God as its own theme. The union of God and death expressing divine love is for Hegel the basic speculative intuition. This implies a dipolar, panentheistic concept of a tragic, suffering God, who risks, loves, and reconciles. Fourth, Williams argues that both Hegel and Nietzsche pursue theodicy, not as a justification of the moral God, but rather as a question of the meaningfulness and goodness of existence despite nihilism and despite tragic conflict and suffering. The inseparability of divine love and anguish means that reconciliation is no conflict-free harmony, but includes a paradoxical tragic dissonance: reconciliation is a disquieted bliss in disaster.

Paul Halmos will celebrate his 75th birthday on the 3rd of March 1991. This volume, from colleagues, is an expression of affection for the man and respect for his contributions as scholar, writer, and teacher. It contains articles about Paul, about the times in which he worked and the places he has been, and about mathematics. Paul has furthered his profession in many ways and this collection reflects that diversity. Articles about Paul are not biographical, but rather tell about his ideas, his philosophy, and his style. Articles about the times and places in which Paul has worked describe people, events, and ways in which Paul has influenced students and colleagues over the past 50 years. Articles about mathematics are about all kinds of mathematics, including operator theory and Paul's research in the subject. This volume represents a slice of mathematical life and it shows how many parts of mathematics Paul has touched. It is fitting that this volume has been produced with the support and cooperation of Springer-Verlag. For over 35 years, Paul has contributed to mathematics publishing as founder and editor of many outstanding series.

In this autobiography, Evangelist Darlene King relives her life giving an intimate perspective of her mistakes and life lessons as she lays everything on the line. Travel on a journey in her shoes as she recalls her struggles of being infected with HIV by her husband--a church pastor--and still constantly having to fight for her marriage through her husband's on-going adultery. She learns the hard way that if HIV doesn't stop him from cheating, nothing will. Darlene suffered from verbal abuse by her cheating pastor husband who aimed to break her spirit with insults such as, "I married beneath me," to dealing with the pain of lies and deceit that come with drug addiction. This is an eye opening story of one woman's triumph over divorce, depression, disease, and distress. Darlene invites you to join in her emotional roller coaster that will make you laugh, cry, feel happy, sad, joyful, loving and inspired. This book is full of stories that will leave you saying, "I didn't know that," and "NO, he didn't do that!" This book is definitely an eye opener for women who don't believe the worst can happen with a man cloaked in holy clothing. King is a devoted mother, preacher, and volunteer speaker for Action Aids of Philadelphia. She is so thankful that God has allowed her to live to see and experience exceedingly, abundantly more than she could have imagined since she tested positive for HIV in 1991. Her hope is that this book changes how we look at those people infected with HIV and that it may prompt a dialogue for people to be educated and get tested. She is now ready to share her story with the world. As she pours her pain onto the pages of this book, she hopes to speak out for anyone who has been scared into silence or afraid of how they will be treated when their health news is revealed. She hopes to provide inspiration to all... especially those whom society has deemed unworthy. This book inspires the movement to love others as we want to be loved. Readers will realize that today it's not just the drug addict being infected with HIV, but it's also the preacher's wife and the senior citizen. May this book prompt the thought, but for the grace of God, it could be my mother, father, sister, brother--or it could be me.

They let you live a risqu existence without you really getting out there. It is the magic that comes to life at midnight; it is the song your heart sings to mine that only you and I can hear. It Is passion that sizzles, it is touchable molten lava, it is raw emotions that we hide everyday. It is what Etta James sings about; it is what Barry White is talking about; it is what James Brown is begging for; it is what Betty Wright is crying about; it is what Jimmy Reed and Al Green are asking about,O those Flamingos croone when they say I Only Have Eyes For You. Follow your heart; it has all the answers. If you can identify with what I am saying, then you have been in love or CAUGHT UP IN MIDNIGHT DESSERT.
