A collaborative undertaking between an artist and a philosopher, this monograph attempts to deepen our understanding of 'contemplative seeing' by addressing the works of Plato, Thoreau, Heidegger, and more. The authors explore what it means to 'see' reality and contemplate how viewing reality philosophically and artfully is a form of spirituality. In this way, by developing a new conception of active visual engagement, the authors propose a way of seeing that unites both critical scrutiny and spiritual involvement, as opposed to simple passive reception.

Their conversation invites both craftspeople and religious seekers to join them on a spiritual journey toward fresh insight and inspiration.

When a visiting estate jeweler is found dead, prizewinning reporter Jim Qwilleran and his Siamese cats, Koko and Yum Yum, must do their best to find the purr-petrator in this delightful novel in the New York Times bestselling Cat Who series. As the Highland Games approach, Jim Qwilleran and the citizens of Pickax, Michigan, prepare to celebrate their Scottish heritage with such evens as bagpipe skirling and tossing the caber. But the traditional revelry is marred by troublesome rumors when a visiting jewelery dealer, renowned for his romantic streak (and his mysterious cash-only policy), is found dead in his hotel room. His assistant is missing—and soon, the winner of the caber-tossing content disappears as well. Qwilleran and his snooping Siamese are willing to go to any lengths to find the killer and set the town at ease. But first they'll have to contend with a highjacked bookmobile and an attempted bank robbery. Qwill has a lot of mysteries to sort out—not the least of which is Koko's sudden interest in photographs, pennies, and paper towels...

The history of the quintessential American home: the cape. Including floor plans, interior rooms, and exteriors. From the mid-1600s to about 1850, capes were built all across New England, homes to fishermen and farmers, to city dwellers and shipwrights. Their low-slung design meant they were economical, easy to build, and generally impervious to the bracing winds that swept in from the ocean. They could be enlarged by equally symmetrical wings, and if you couldn't afford clapboards all around, you could easily sheath the back and sides with inexpensive cedar shingles and let them weather to a stormy gray. After World War II, these straightforward practical designs were adapted to 20th-century living across the northeast. This classic book, a proud native Cape Codder, is as simple, elegant, and accessible as the houses it describes. You'll gain a new and deep appreciation for the common American house.
