From Dawn To Daylight from the Author: Dawn Downey. Dawn Downey's second collection of essays is for everyone who savors down-to-earth stories with a twist of wisdom. Deeply honest and deeply personal, her observations are laced with quirky insights and self-deprecating humor. She draws inspiration from the flu, the garden, bad knees and bad TV. She explores larger themes of loss and estrangement, while retaining a youthful outlook on the vagaries of life and aging. Readers will journey from the mundane to the metaphysical. Here's an author who lets us in on her fear of cows. We follow her quest to learn compassion. We share her desire for peace. As she does in her spiritual memoir, Stumbling Toward the Buddha, Downey attempts to understand relationships. In Forgive Me, she reflects on the meaning of an insincere apology. ("Sorry you're inflexible. Sorry you're mad. Sorry you don't understand my position.") In 2015 Dawn-Mobile, she compares her body to a used car. ("I can ill afford the maintenance: gym memberships, yoga classes, chiropractors, therapists. And still, it backfires.") In Samsara, she aims her wit at envy. ("When an upscale lifestyle magazine featured my chic pal's Los Angeles home, it turned into a sixteen-page full-color spread of my jealousy. The green-eyed monster drooled all over her Ming porcelain.") And in Cemetery Song, she has a conversation with her mother, who died in her fifties. "You seldom laughed, and now I understand, now that I'm older than you ever got to be. Do you like my hair?") Dawn Downey's narratives describe the ties that bind us.

From Dawn To Dusk To Daylight from the Author: Bruce Ross. Bruce Ross knew something was wrong. He felt displaced and isolated from friends, family, and society. He had no one to turn to, and so he tried to cope with it himself. The fact that he had a disease called depression never entered his mind. He, like so many people, thought that only other people suffered from depression, not someone who appeared to be a well-adjusted, middle class person. From Dawn to Dusk to Daylight chronicles Ross’s journey and struggles with depression, from his high school years until middle age. During this time, his promising start in life transformed into a dusk, in which Ross lived twenty-four hours of each day in a gloomy and unsettled existence. With eloquence and charm, he recaptures the joys of his childhood in Dartmouth, growing up with his buddies. Gradually, those times faded, and he found himself in the middle of his teenage years and the beginnings of his depression. Ross lived with the pain of depression and its “twin sister,” Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), for more than thirty-five years before achieving a breakthrough thanks to the experimental procedure known as Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS). This exciting advancement in medical science shows great promise for depression sufferers in North America and around the world. From Dawn to Dusk to Daylight is the candid and revealing story of the trials and tribulations of living with depression and the relief DBS finally brought.

All That I Am With Thoughts And Dreams from the Author: Tanya Lynn Walker. In understanding who I am and the journey it took to get me from one point in my life to another, I have written this book of poetry as the link to a creative process of true and honest emotions. I am the force behind my own energy and fate. Through purpose and passion it is with joy and happiness I share my unshakeable truths. My world revolves around interpretations of rhythm and rhyme. While some may view these poems as thought-provoking, they are merely words of beauty and power that surround me in my space and time. The passion and light reflected in this book are responses to inspirations, tragedies, love, and faith, a way that helps me to connect with the modern reader. They are words that I have spoken and thought of in my mind and heart. Poetry is love in any language and because I am in love with life, I have written these love songs to those that have achieved something greater than the power of words. Poetry is wisdom and the humility that comes from wisdom. All the knowledge that I have gained from wisdom comes from heaven. I am but a lonely dreamer.
