Blackberries in the Dream House Excerpt :

This book offers both a wide range of critical perspectives on cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) from around the world, and substantial responses to them. It represents the first attempt to engage in print with the controversies and complexities that have exercised - sometimes painfully - the therapy and counselling world, since CBT has risen to such cultural prominence as Western governments take a serious interest in the psychological therapies as instruments of public policy-making. "Against and For CBT" will be essential reading for psychotherapists, psychoanalysts and counsellors of each and every approach who are concerned with understanding the phenomenon that is CBT and its discontents. It will be core reading both on Increasing Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT)/CBT and contrasting modality training courses that wish to encourage critical engagement with the meaning and cultural context of! the therapeutic endeavour.

There Is Wisdom in Walnuts Excerpt :

The title of Tony Ellis' collection of poems ""there is wisdom in walnuts,"" reflects one of the primary concerns of this collection: the presence and containment of the infinite within its smallest part. Ellis' poems like jewels, spare, serene and pristine in their beauty need no particular setting. They reflect, like clear mirrors unhampered by distortion, the unity and connectedness of all things. Focusing on personal meditative experiences and daily activities, the poems in this collection playfully and longingly touch the edges of eternity. With a minimum of adornment and elaboration, the images presented in these poems move us as through a prism into the center of things. The speaker in these poems seek the oneness and is nourished by his affinity to it. In a single dewdrop the speaker states: from a single drop of dew is the pathway to a million civilizations whose voice we never hear except in the gentle breath of breeze and the quiet hum of life infinitely growing This economy of words, unembroidered, allows for the graceful and effortless slipping of the bonds of the commonplace as we enter timelessness and connect with past and future. The sparkling dewdrop becomes the gateway to connect with the eternal since it carries within itself the essence and the paradigm of all of life and is part of the magnificent and all-encompassing software that is nature. In the poem sometimes, the speaker explains: there is nothing so fulfilling as the white tassle of a carpet seen through the eyes of everything, or a simple green pot sitting clean on a perfect surface

Dream House Excerpt :

A Fatal Car Accident That Leads to Startling Truths About the Home Gina Left Behind Gina balances between her current life in California and her past in Maine. Torn between the two, she does what any architect will do. She deconstructs her old childhood home piece by piece and with it, the secrets it carries. In the months following her parents’ fatal car accident in Maine, architect Gina Gilbert is coming apart: anxious with her two young children, alienated by her clients’ grand house dreams, and no longer certain she feels at home in San Francisco. While she and her sister Cassie are cleaning out their childhood home on the coast of Maine, they stir up painful memories and resentments over family possessions. A legendary collection of historically significant letters is missing from the artifacts they unearth, supporting a decades-old suspicion that their aunt or estranged cousin has stolen them. Threatened by the loss of the old house and its extraordinary seaside landscape, Gina finds her heart swinging wildly between Maine and California, creating conflict with her husband, Paul. To learn what the Maine house means to her, she approaches it objectively, as an architect, bringing it to life on paper. Her family’s story unfolds room by room: the darkroom from which her gentle but passive father, Ron, ran his photography business, the kitchen where her volatile mother, Eleanor, toiled under the weight of dashed dreams. As children, Gina and Cassie warily navigated rooms permeated with toxic secrets hobbling Eleanor and Ron’s marriage. As Gina deconstructs the house, startling truths are revealed, changing family history and allowing Gina and Cassie to begin healing family wounds. Gina has the chance to search the recesses of her heart, too, discovering within her a vitalizing compassion and an awakened understanding of what makes a house a home.

The House on Blackberry Hill Excerpt :

When a young woman inherits a rundown mansion, the last thing she expects to find is the key to her heart... Abby Foster is a fish out of water in the Maine coastal town of Jewell Cove. The crumbling Foster estate, left to her by a relative she never even knew, has everyone's eyes on her—an eerie reminder of the long-buried family secrets that have haunted her...forever. Single, stunning, and sometimes too strong-willed for her own good, Abby's plan is to sell the house and hightail it back to Nova Scotia. But another part of her is intrigued by the idea of starting over somewhere new—and finally learning the truth about her heritage. THE HOUSE ON BLACKBERRY HILL Enter Tom Arseneault. The best contractor in Jewell Cove, Tom is determined to restore the beauty and prestige of the Foster mansion—and maybe even work his charms on its beautiful new heir. The attraction between him and Abby is undeniable, and the more time Tom spends on the house the more he wants to be in it with her. But Abby's not sure she can trust him—or anyone in Jewell Cove who seems to know more about her family history than she does. Home: Is it really where the heart is after all? "Oh, my silly heart be still. This is a wonderful romance, packed with family drama, a sexy hero, an incredible old house. You'll fall in love from the very first page."—Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • Publisher : Unknown
  • Release Date : 1993
  • Genre: History
  • Pages : 175
  • ISBN 10 : STANFORD:36105020317785

Dream House Excerpt :

In the tradition of Jill Kerr Conway's The Road from Coorain and Tobias Wolff's This Boy's Life, this girl's life of the 1950s is a deeply moving family memoir. Nekota writes in eloquent translucent prose about a time when it was important to crease your khakis, shine the fins on your car, and plant colorful flowers in front of your suburban home. But her story contradicts this vision of families as well kept as their lawns. Nekola's is a woman's take on an era when men were men and women stayed close to home. Dad is in love with travel and, when not away on business trips, leaves home through his nightly cocktails. Mom collects recipes, having forsaken a career as a teacher. She dreams of writing children's books, but can't find a free moment to transfer the stories from her mind to paper. While the children glimpse the magic of childhood - getting up in the middle of the night to see an eclipse, finding possums in the backyard - they feel the disquieting reverberations of loss and longing. This family memoir looks at what might have been lost in the struggle to "move up". It explores the cost of what was left unsaid by the "silent generation", and what the cost was for their children - from becoming pregnant and marrying young to dropping out and becoming hippies. Nekola speaks compassionately of her family torn apart by alcoholism, early death, and homelessness. Through writing, through caring, she charts a path for others to rethink their lives and the lives of their families.

One Small Kindness Excerpt :

These poems provide entrance to a powerful soul. They carry the impact of the difficult and heightened task of being fully alive and present.Diane Frank, Pulitzer Prize Nominee -- Blackberries in the Dream House. . . she shows how small acts of compassion can have large reverberations in people's lives. Again and again she focuses on the moment when one life reaches out to another, a moment that makes a world of difference. Packed with memorable characters and events, One Small Kindness is a mind-stretching, sometimes heart-wrenching book which offers us all an education in empathy.Dr. Allan Dorn, World Order of Narrative and Formalist PoetsZesty, ebullient, capacious, and even wise, Gayl Teller's poems reveal in the palpable details of a vivacious women's family life, complete with aging parents, a long marriage, children, uncles, and aunts. Teller aims each of her poems straight at the fully liven moment, which she believes can be achieved despite grim realities -- and perhaps because of them. One Small Kindness memorializes those benign moments of love that never make the news, but lay a deep foundation for well being.Molly Peacock, author of Cornucopia: New and Selected PoemsGayl Teller has produced a book of great strength and tenderness, emotion's lyrics that focus on family, marriage, motherhood, the intelligent connections among them. The poems start with local imagery -- 'the bounty of familiarity' -- and extend from the kitchen and dining table out to the often hurting world, to Kosovo, say, and East Africa, as well as a hospital room where her father struggles inside his languishing body. One Small Kindness is 'not about somber light,' but 'belief in horizon again.' What a pleasure!Michelle Cooper, Editor, The Newport ReviewIn spite of all the contrary evidence: History's 'bloody face'; the Nazi death camps; the humiliating suffering of the aged, one's father, mother or sweet uncle Phil; the licensed global madness of war and terrorism, Gayl Teller insist
