I went to Central Park to find the place behind the Metropolitan Museum of Art where Jennifer Levin had been killed. It was bewildering to find a scene so beautiful to see the same sunlight pour down indifferently on the earth. As I showed the photograph of this site to friends, I realized that I was not alone in thinking of her when walking by the Met. It occurred to me that I held something within: a list of places that I cannot forget because of the tragedies that identify them, and I began to wonder if each of us has such a list. I set out to photograph sites that were marked during my lifetime. Yet, there was something else that drew me to this work. I think of it as the question of knowability. Experience has taught me again and again that you can never know what lies beneath a surface or behind a façade. Our sense of place, our understanding of photographs of the landscape is inevitably limited and fraught with misreading. Joel Sternfeld Between 1993 and 1996, Joel Sternfeld photographed 50 infamous crime sites around the US. On This Site, contains images of these unsettlingly normal places, ordinary landscapes left behind after tragedies, their hidden stories disturbingly invisible. Each photograph is accompanied by a text describing the crime that took place at the location. This is the first Steidl edition of On This Site, originally published in 1996 to great acclaim. A major figure in the photography world, Joel Sternfeld was born in New York City in 1944. He has received numerous awards including two Guggenheim fellowships, a Prix de Rome and the Citibank Photography Award. Sternfeld s books published by Steidl include American Prospects (2003), Sweet Earth (2006), Oxbow Archive (2008) and First Pictures (2011).

A siren who's terrified of the ocean...with a destiny that involves a hunky shirtless dude.Ever meet a mermaid terrified of the ocean? The closest I get to salt water is in my bath. As for singing? My siren heritage left me with a killer voice. Literally. Some people can charm animals out of trees. Me? They jump to their deaths rather than listen to another note. I know I’m different. And I’m cool with it. What I’m not cool with is the meathead who decides that he’s my fated mate. Just because he’s tall, handsome, and muscle-bound doesn’t mean I’m going to fall into bed with him. We might do it standing upright first. Don’t judge. I deserve a little fun, especially since I think my time on Earth is limited. The nightmares are getting stronger. The mood swings nastier. The ocean is calling, but I don’t think it wants to give me a gentle embrace. Can a misfit who doesn’t belong anywhere find a way to survive the future - and maybe even fall in love? 1.

Christmas in Scotland. After this past year, I wasn’t sure I would ever celebrate another holiday. Jordon was sleeping behind me and out the window I saw not just the snow covered landscape but our future stretching out into the distance.For the first time since I could remember, I didn’t see the next mission. There wasn’t one. Steel was no more. I was ready for a new life, one full of promise and not death. Nickoli was with us now, fighting battles none of us could quite understand. He was struggling to find his place among us. Building our new lives and helping him find his way were all I needed right now; that and the man who had fought his way into my heart.My luck had always been shit, just as I think we can get on with our lives and new business, the past comes back to rear its ugly head and piss me off.The Russians just don’t know when to leave well enough alone. Instead of licking their wounds and going back to Hell, they think they’re going to come after me and mine.My resources may be limited but my determination has never been greater. 1.

Katalagein: A Collection of Cat F&SF Short Stor...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Welcome to Katalagein. I've been writing short stories now for 25 years, and they've been published for 24 of those. I also write books, but that's another tale entirely. I live with a cat, or rather, as he'd see it, he graciously permits me to live with him. As a result, and over the years, a number of my stories have featured cats, and some even featured cats that were real - although their adventures may have been exaggerated, but then again.... Cats think that humans exist to keep them warmed, fed, cuddled, and loved. Humans exist to open doors, cat-food tins, and cartons large enough for a cat to curl up in. They exist to rescue the cat, defend the cat, and protect the cat. Our opinion, that cats exist to keep us company and catch mice, doesn't begin to describe the relationship of the average cat with their human. Humans are stupid too, in the estimation of the same cat. No tail, no whiskers - no brains. Certainly our language abilities, compared to feline-speak are incredibly limited. We come in useful for some things but it can take so long to get the essential demand across, that I think that my current cat, Thunder, assumes I'm something of an idiot. However, I've always enjoyed writing cat stories, some have even won awards, and using my imagination I've been able to explore cats and their elements in a way that has opened doors to worlds previously unknown to me - and not always as expected either. So follow me into the many worlds of cats, but watch out, because where ever cats go, trouble follows! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Barnard.

Step by Step Guide to Mindfulness: Learning by ...

As we head toward the kitchen, the monk notices a light outside one of the cabins. "Who is cabin six? Your outside light is on. This is what happens when you are not mindful!" he scolds. I look in the direction he is pointing. My heart drops. It's my room! But how? Where is the switch? Then, I realize it's the switch inside I played with earlier. In my limited state of seeing, I only saw the lights in the room. Little did I think that my actions were affecting something outside of the room! "It's my room." Cheeks burning with embarrassment, I take the walk of shame over to my room to turn off the light. As we move through life we never fully know who or what our actions are affecting. We only see from our own perspective. Just like me not seeing the light outside of my room even though my actions turned it on. I think it's important to remember that even if what we do in life seems mundane or silly, it is still affecting the bigger picture. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kathleen Holeman.

Willow  I knew all about Wyatt Evans from watching the revolving door of females exiting his dorm room every weekend. He was a bad boy. And I'd kept my distance. I was too good. Too boring. Too inexperienced to ever consider dating him. Now, it was the last semester of senior year. I was interning at a local magazine. There was one position open post graduation. The competition was fierce and I wanted it. Even if it was for a sex columnist and my experience was severely limited. How limited? I was practically a virgin. So what did I have going for me? Well, I was a really great writer. And I was willing to do whatever it took to get hired. Imagine my surprise when I woke up in Wyatt's bed. Imagine my dismay when I realized we hadn't slept together. Imagine my shock when he offered to help me win the job. How? One week together. One 50 Item Sex Bucket List. A whole lot of fun. Somehow, I was going to break the bad boy. Reviews "I have to admit, novellas tend to make me a little crazy. I get invested in a book only to realize its a shorter story (this one is 195 pages) and I am looking for my 12 hour movie. But this is the third Emma Nichols short story I have read and she has totally nailed it! When I want something sweet, steamy and to the point, going with Emma Nichols is never a disappointment." (Desiree Gorman, A Love Affair With Books Blog)"I loved the chemistry of the characters from the beginning to the end it was off the charts hot!" (Jamie Deaver, Sassy Divas Book Blog)"I loved the connection between Wyatt and Willow. He was always encouraging her to do what she wanted with her life and to not worry about what her parents might think. The sex scenes were HOT!" (Sarah Larson, Stories and Swag Blog)"Emma Nichols knows how to heat up the pages with her erotic stories and hot men 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alexandra Ralph.
