Finding A Break In The Clouds brings the dark and elusive mystery of eating disorders to a comprehensible light by naming it. The "invader" (anorexia/bulimia) and its thugs (Guilt, Shame, and the fear monster) are exposed and conquered during the reader's experience. This is accomplished through use of symbols, interactive activity breaks, fresh new perspectives, and unique journal exercises -- all based on the newly-planted seed of self-care - "There is nothing wrong with me!" While implementing this unique process, the eating disorder is seen as less of a tragedy, and more of an opportunity to build a new, impervious strength. With this creative workbook, the reader gains access to the warrior within, signs a declaration of war on the invader, signs a peace treaty with food, learns how to naturally and gently re-nourish the body, rescues stifled emotions, builds a House of Being, constructs a relapse prevention kit, and climbs the clouds to reach the sunshine of freedom from food illness. The readers is able to separate himself/herself from anorexia/bulimia, and uncover the innate greatness which was there all along. In the last chapter, a peace treaty with the invader is signed, and the reader writes a good-bye letter to the eating disorder, acknowledging it as an experiential teacher. Finding A Break In The Clouds also reaches out to family members and friends who are attempting to understand what is happening to their loved one. Chapter ten (Frequently Asked Questions) and Chapter Eleven (Tips For Family and Friends) offer family members, friends, peers, and spouses a new inside understanding of the world of anorexia/bulimia, as well as advice on what to do, and what not to do when trying to help. Filled with diverse activities and exercises, Finding A Break In The Clouds allows each person to find the unique internal system of recovery which can ignite the individual healing process, and light the path to well-being.

Burial in the Clouds is the first English language translation of Hiroyuki Agawa's classic novel of World War II, Kumo No Bohyo. A powerful novel, it takes the form of the war-time diary of a young Japanese college student inducted into the Imperial Navy at the height of World War II. Trained as a combat pilot, he is transferred to one of the new "special attack" or "kamikaze" units when the tide of the war turns against Japan. Like many young men of his generation, Jiro Yoshino, once a scholar of the humanities immersed in the study of poetry and philosophy, will offer everything he has to his country—his body, mind, and soul. By the age of twenty-five, Yoshino understands that his life, and those of his friends, will almost certainly be forfeit to the machinery of war. This wonderful translation brings to life the harsh realities of war as it explores the personal stories of these young soldiers.

Our House in the Clouds

While many baby boomers are downsizing to a simpler retirement lifestyle, photographer and writer Judy Blankenship and her husband Michael Jenkins took a more challenging leap in deciding to build a house on the side of a mountain in southern Ecuador. They now live half the year in Cañar, an indigenous community they came to know in the early nineties when Blankenship taught photography there. They are the only extranjeros (outsiders) in this homely, chilly town at 10,100 feet, where every afternoon a spectacular mass of clouds rolls up from the river valley below and envelopes the town. In this absorbing memoir, Blankenship tells the interwoven stories of building their house in the clouds and strengthening their ties to the community. Although she and Michael had spent considerable time in Cañar before deciding to move there, they still had much to learn about local customs as they navigated the process of building a house with traditional materials using a local architect and craftspeople. Likewise, fulfilling their obligations as neighbors in a community based on reciprocity presented its own challenges and rewards. Blankenship writes vividly of the rituals of births, baptisms, marriages, festival days, and deaths that counterpoint her and Michael’s solitary pursuits of reading, writing, listening to opera, playing chess, and cooking. Their story will appeal to anyone contemplating a second life, as well as those seeking a deeper understanding of daily life in the developing world.
