These reflections on my terminal cancer have only one purpose in mind: to bring together those who would heal. and those who would be healed. And to preserve protect and prolong life, hold it sacred against all impediments and anyone who would have it otherwise. They mirror the human predicament reflected in a single heart, are written with no intent to harm, and hold everybody harmless in an effort to save lives. Some of the names have been altered to protect the innocent, while others have been used with their permission. Everything written and implied explicitly. or implicitly, is solely the perception of the author. The story of my life struggling with the cancer in me and the cancer out there as I call it, that would have had me dead before my time, is an odyssey that allows one to look into oneself. The fragility and insouciance of human nature is terrifying, disheartening and inconceivable at times, but nonetheless allows one to transcend it if one has the courage and tenacity to survive against all odds. Thats what this story is all about. I dedicate this book to all those who would unstintingly heal, knowing what cannot be known. hold life sacred and seek this truth so as to transcend themselves and act with compassion. humility and unerring faith, to help others survive.

Back in the early 1600s, Rene Descartes, the father of modern philosophy was struggling with the meaning of life, and wondering if he really existed, or if he was just some kind of awareness fl oating around in the universe. He fi nally resolved that he really did exist. His proof was stated, I think, therefore I am. Too bad for him there werent any old time cowboys around yet, or they could have saved him all that soul searching. Very early in the life of a cowboy, as he picks himself up out of a pile of rocks after being bucked off his horse, he knows for absolute certain of his existence. In the words of author and old time cowboy, Jon Garate, I HURT, THEREFORE I AM. Who would ever believe that growing up as a wild cowboy in the Old West would nurture the developing mind of a self-made philosopher? Herein, a reader can harvest-in-full, or glean piece-meal, nuggets ofhorse sense (country wisdom), feasting on the thoughts and ideas presented throughout this work of art.

You never dreamed being the boss would be so hard. You're caught in a web of conflicting expectations from subordinates, your supervisor, peers, and customers. You're not alone. As Linda Hill and Kent Lineback reveal in Being the Boss, becoming an effective manager is a painful, difficult journey. It's trial and error, endless effort, and slowly acquired personal insight.

This new book explains how to avoid that fate, by mastering three imperatives: · Manage yourself: Learn that management isn't about getting things done yourself. It's about accomplishing things through others. · Manage a network: Understand how power and influence work in your organization and build a network of mutually beneficial relationships to navigate your company's complex political environment. · Manage a team: Forge a high-performing "we" out of all the "I"s who report to you. Packed with compelling stories and practical guidance, Being the Boss is an indispensable guide for not only first-time managers but all managers seeking to master the most daunting challenges of leadership.

This book doesn't have one main plot. It has 35 of them. These are story poems of animals that act like humans. They have their problems just like real people. They pull tricks on one another. They laugh. cry, feel bad, cheat, fight, love and what have you. But at the end of each short story there is usually a moral or a hard learned lesson that teaches them how wrong they were to start trouble in the first place and how to live peacefully. Some of the poetry is funny, some silly, sad or thoughtful. The poem of the horse and the cow, "True Friends", shows that love lasts forever. The animals also can see each others differences. Some are respected, some aren't. Take for example Noah's Ark. The story in the Bible and mine is that you hear the animals version and their point of view. You're also going to read about a turtle who went to the circus for the first time and what happened to him. There's a story about a fox who keeps trying to crash into a camp site but is put off by a huge dog everytime. There is a story that all mailmen will love.Maybe by reading this book a lot of adults will probably remember the antics of their own pets when they were small. Even a story about Saint Francis makes it into the book. It is about my own dog "Freddie the Freeloader, now in heaven. There is a story about a lion who thought that this would never happen to him. A poem about a stone cat who yearns to be alive is very interesting.. A lot of these story poems will have you saying to yourself how true, how true.
