The colors of spiritual destiny weave through human history like eternal threads in an intricate tapestry. As the modern world pines for unity to triumph over extremism, Islam’s spiritual leaders are turning to the past: to the convivencia, Spain’s golden medieval age in which the three faiths—Islam, Christianity, and Judaism—coexisted peacefully. The key to reviving this peace, they believe, is the Clepsydra, a 1000-year-old water clock capable of turning back the hands of time and streaming the message of peace through the hearts of all humankind. Some questions remain: Where is the Clepsydra hidden? Who will craft this message of peace? And what will happen when their time-bending tactics are detected by a spiritually advanced First Nations tribe from North America who believe themselves to be the guardians of time itself? These questions lead a diverse array of characters into the scintillating drama of action, reflection, and revelation, wherein the threads of interfaith partnership may be brought together once and for all.

This heartwarming story of a decades long international friendship began around a kitchen table in Moscow in 1989. As the Soviet Union was breaking up, five Russian friends got the improbable idea of traveling to America with three of their children to learn more firsthand about the West.
They sent about 100 letters to randomly selected towns in the United States to express their interest in visiting. The small agricultural town of Garden City, Kansas, with an amazingly rich history of hosting foreign visitors, was among the first to respond and resulted in a memorable human connection that changed the lives of all of the visitors and host families, as well as the culture of Garden City.
Their story of the adventure and growing understanding that followed is told from the point of view of one of the Russian visitors (Vera Penkova) and her host family (Barbara and Milton McMinimy). Their friendship continues almost 30 years later.

It's Time to Tell a Story
by Anne Dupré
From the time he was a little boy, David Bard loved to make up stories. Even before he could read and write, he drew pictures of the stories he imagined. As he grew older, everything around David sparked his imagination. He wrote about the subjects he was studying and the class trips he took and, of course, his cherished companion, a little pug. David Bard was a good story teller.
The imagination knows all stories
before they are told . . . .
—William Carlos Williams
Can You Hear Me Now?
Finding My Voice in a System That Stole It
by Angela McCrimmon
The thoughts and feelings I should have felt safe enough to entrust in the hands of a Professional are now finding their way from the entrapment of my mind to the healing I am finding in my writing. Revealing that although I've battled Self-Harm on the outside, the real harm was often done by Mental Health Professionals themselves.
It's been a roller-coaster ride writing this book but definitely one I had to ride to get to the other side. Determined to finally stand up for myself and to encourage others to stand alongside me.
Often dismissed, ignored, and scared into silence...
Can you hear me now?

My Story: Ninety-Some Years of Recollections
by Payrlee Huddleston McCall
Long ago and far away, the great, great grandparents of pugs today lived in Buddhist temples high in the mountains of Tibet. On moonlit summer nights, the little pugs pressed their flat noses to white moon orchids, glowing like moths flying through a moonbeam. At dawn they lay by blue-green ponds where fat little toads leaped and splashed. The loving companions to the monks lived in harmony with everyone and everything around them.
In the Buddhist tradition, The Little Pug’s Dreams
illustrates the timeless value of mindfulness, compassion, and the awareness of the interconnectedness of all beings.
The Little Pug’s Dreams offers a delightful and enriching story for young readers and an inspirational narrative for all ages. Certainly the universal message of compassion and mindfulness to the beauty that surrounds us is more important today than ever.
The story of Payrlee Huddleston McCall, a true pioneer woman, who lived a long and rewarding life. Her story spans the 20th century - from horse and wagon transportation to the landing on the moon to the internet. She lived through the Great Depression and WWII.
She was the epitome of "back to nature" and "use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without" before those concepts became fashionable.
She wrote her story so her family could share her perspective on the eventful 20th century.
