After killing off my physical self in Ready 4 Afterlife, I have another battle in my wake. That battle is with myself.

My exact opposite. Could I be able to conquer this evil? Could I return to being a regular man?

Hitchhikers can be an unpredictable lot, to say the least. But if they share one thing in common, it's that they're all desperate. And it's that very notion that drives Mitch Harpring to seek them out. You see, Mitch doesn't care where you are, how you got there, or where you're going. He'll take you as far as you need to go. All he asks, all he wants in return, is that you go to his funeral when he dies. The only catch is, Mitch has worked in a stock room and locked himself up in his apartment at night for abouta decade. That isnt the interesting part of his story, mind you. Its merely a means of illustrating just how physically and mentally unprepared Mitch is to take on a street gang, a semi-truck, multiple stabbings, and the worlds most frightening spider. Ever. But hes willing to risk it all so long as he can get somebody, anybody, to come to his funeral.

An unknown hand seems to have directed the astonishing, other-worldly experiences revealed by author, Sarah Delano, in On The Way to My Funeral. Like ocean waves that are guided by an unseen force to crash and break upon the jagged rocks of the Maine coast, altered time events came crashing through the veils of normal consciousness; breaking apart ordinary concepts of time and space…life and death, leaving the author forever altered. Nothing during the idyllic childhood she enjoyed during the 40’s and 50’s in the safety and simplicity of Boothbay Harbor, Maine, hinted at the events that would follow in the world beyond the limits of her hometown. In a skillful, unadorned style of writing Ms. Delano speaks of the unspeakable: rape on the high seas, war in the Middle East, living future segments of her life before they happened, past life experiences, and a near-death event…all of which turned the beliefs of her simple childhood upside down. In the recounting of these events and more, Ms. Delano invites readers to examine their own lives and beliefs: to hold themselves somehow accountable in a universe for which there is no accounting.

This book was written in tribute to a great woman who developed a disease called lupus. Having this illness caused her to give up her career as a registered nurse and to submit to lupus. Alice's desire to live came from her faith in God. She knew that God has the power to heal. At times Alice would get angry over her illness and cry out to God, saying, "Why me?" Some people say we should not question God or ask why. It has been said that we should ask God for what we want and wait for the answer. As this lady of great faith held to God's unchanging hands and the doctors were doing all they could, she began to motivate herself to live on. She developed a purpose for living. She had developed lupus in the year of 1972. At that time, they did not know much about the disease called lupus. Being her husband and caretaker, I began to try to understand. I was having emotional difficulty dealing with the thought that there was no cure and that my loved one was going to die. It seemed very unfair. My faith and our faith combined together, and our love for one another was our strength and our key to our endurance. When you are doing all you can, the best medicine is just a little tender loving care. I was proud to be her husband through sickness and in health. This story is about my love for a dying woman with lupus.

“I had experienced absolute freedom—I had felt that my body was without boundaries, limitless; that pain didn’t matter, that nothing mattered at all—and it intoxicated me.” In 2010, more than 750,000 people stood in line at Marina Abramović’s MoMA retrospective for the chance to sit across from her and communicate with her nonverbally in an unprecedented durational performance that lasted more than 700 hours. This celebration of nearly fifty years of groundbreaking performance art demonstrated once again that Marina Abramović is truly a force of nature. The child of Communist war-hero parents under Tito’s regime in postwar Yugoslavia, she was raised with a relentless work ethic. Even as she was beginning to build an international artistic career, Marina lived at home under her mother’s abusive control, strictly obeying a 10 p.m. curfew. But nothing could quell her insatiable curiosity, her desire to connect with people, or her distinctly Balkan sense of humor—all of which informs her art and her life. The beating heart of Walk Through Walls is an operatic love story—a twelve-year collaboration with fellow performance artist Ulay, much of which was spent penniless in a van traveling across Europe—a relationship that began to unravel and came to a dramatic end atop the Great Wall of China. Marina’s story, by turns moving, epic, and dryly funny, informs an incomparable artistic career that involves pushing her body past the limits of fear, pain, exhaustion, and danger in an uncompromising quest for emotional and spiritual transformation. A remarkable work of performance in its own right, Walk Through Walls is a vivid and powerful rendering of the unparalleled life of an extraordinary artist.

I Scream Soup Dedication To my village of pain pals and to those who are lucky not to fall under this title. To those who knowingly and unknowingly caused the light to flow from deep inside my screaming soul. To you who helped to drive the words that spilled onto the blank sheets beneath my pen. And to those who are my faithful friends until the end. To life for its thorns, winds, sunshine, and storms. And to God for the strength that helped me endure. And last but not least, to my nieces and nephews and my brothers and sisters. To my mother who taught me strength and resourcefulness. And to my father whos no longer with us but left me the gift of music, poetry, and most importantly, the trait for feeling passionate love.

An old man, affectionately known as Gramps, remembers and records some of the major events that shaped his life; from the accidental death of his only son to his own declining years. Spot-lighted are the lives of four boys. We watch appalled as Chase, the biological grandson, deals with cancer. We follow the maturing of Roger (who is rescued and subsequently adopted by Gramps) as he deals with a haunting past; Bradley, a young American boy who becomes an honorary grandson adding to the fun-side of Gramps experiences; and we feel for Edward as he deals with the loss of his best friend and later a disastrous courtship. Meet the Rev. Dr. James Hayward, the pompous headmaster of St. Johns; the over-weight, tactless Mrs. Henderson with her multiple chins; Caleb, the avid young fisherman who springs a surprise on Chase and Bradley that neither of them would ever have expected; the young Indian schoolboy who is victimized by the school bullies; young Phelps, the rat-faced stooge of the cowardly Harrington-Blake and others. The author has presented his public with an inspirational book that deals with issues such as the unfairness of life; stereotyping; judgmentalism; racism; corporal punishment; guilt; past regret; heartbreak; death; etc., from a practical, Christian perspective without being "preachy".

Colleen Lutzak, a talented young Ukrainian musician from northern Alberta, struggles to maintain a sense of identity as her awareness of the world expands. Growing up in the small northern Alberta community of St. Paul, Colleen Lutzak has both positives and negatives to deal with – she has an abundance of musical talent, excellent grades in school, and a close extended family. On the other hand, she has a melodramatic mother, a nemesis named Carla Senko who somehow manages to screw up every triumph Colleen closes in on, and a cousin named Kalyna. Kalyna is Colleen’s alter ego – they have the same name in different languages – and Kalyna is a mystery. A grown woman who once had a family, Kalyna talks and acts like a child. She loves Colleen’s music more than anything in the world, and brings out every protective instinct her young cousin has. Colleen vigorously practices her youthful idealism as well as her talent. This mindset means life’s lessons will be particularly hard on her. Her beloved music teacher, who shared and supported her pride in her Ukrainian heritage, suddenly dies. Colleen fails miserably in her first attempt at university in Edmonton. She is so determined to get away from all the “disappointments” of home that she registers to attend the United World College campus in Swaziland for a year. Obviously, Swaziland is an utterly foreign experience. Colleen meets young women from truly dire political and social circumstances all over the world. She realizes how sheltered her life in Canada has been. Her sense of identity and self-worth is challenged by her foreign surroundings, her homesickness, the suicide of her closest friend. And the sudden death of Kalyna. This final tragedy forces Colleen to face adult decisions about the purpose to which she should devote her life and her talent.
