The Opposite of Letting the Mind Wander: Selected Poems and a Few Songs (Lost Roads, No. 36) (USED)

$10.00
More Info
Poetry. " All of Waldrop's work evokes the conflict between activity and passivity, doing and being, poetry as discovery and poetry as invention. In fact, reading Waldrop gives the reader two impressions, often in rapid succession: that of participating in a desperate search for a lost and possibly non-existent item; and that of sitting still, trying to be so quiet a tiny voice will reach one from a distance. The energy in these poems goes into the effort of thought, of meditation, not into the lines. Like Wallace Stevens in his early long poems (and like any phenomenologist) Waldrop strips perceptions of accretions so that they can be seen in their first light, without falsification. The effect is in both cases a poem that is smooth flowing on the surface but dense with effort and energy underneath" - Janet McCann, Parnassus: Poetry in Review.

the Ultimate American Pit Bull Terrier (USED)

$6.99
More Info
Congratulations! You own or are about to own one of the most distinguished breeds of the twentieth century, the American Pit Bull Terrier. Your dog is automatically feared and respected by other people, and it's up to you to be his caretaker and ambassador.

This book will help you do both-and more. In the caretaking department, ""The Ultimate American Pit Bull Terrier"" will tell you everything you need to know about feeding your dog from puppyhood to old age. It will explain grooming essentials, like trimming toenails, cleaning ears, checking teeth, brushing and bathing. It will describe basic health concerns, from vaccination schedules to flea control to what to do in an emergency.

As for being an ambassador for your breed, ""The Ultimate American Pit Bull Terrier"" will tell you all sorts of fun facts about the Pit Bull's history so you can boast about your dog and help people understand him for who he really is. Did you know The Little Rascals' devoted companion, Petey, was a Pit Bull? Or that the Pit Bull was the symbol of American strength and courage during World War I? It's true; the Pit Bull was once the all-American dog, a companion cherished for his excellent way with children, his playfulness and his doggy demeanor. In most homes, he still is. But it's also true that today Pit Bulls are associated more with crime than with companionship.

""The Ultimate American Pit Bull Terrier"" celebrates the breed for the kind of dog it is with the right owners. A dog with physical and mental stature whose intelligence, charm and energy make him a superb friend, fellow athlete and playmate.

To Read My Words Is To Know My Heart

$15.00
More Info
This collection of poetry speaks of a new chapter in my life. Having come out of the darkness of loss it was time to navigate the world without my dearest Lee and now even my beloved dog, Millie.

Interacting alone in this new landscape, which was often unfamiliar and not particularly friendly at times, proved to be a challenge and one in which I was not always up for.

The poems reflect this new journey, where loneliness stalks and the possibility of new love brought only unrequited love, where treading nature's seasons brings a new appreciation for what each offers, a pandemic survived alone, and other observations of life made through new eyes.

What does it really mean when people are viewed as bytes of data? And is there beauty or an imaginative potential to information culture and the databases cataloging it? As Too Numerous reveals, the raw material of bytes and data points can be reshaped and repurposed for ridiculous, melancholic, and even aesthetic purposes.

Grappling with an information culture that is both intimidating and daunting, Kent Shaw considers the impersonality represented by the continuing accumulation of personal information and the felicities-and barriers-that result: "The us that was inside us was magnificent structures. And they weren't going to grow any larger."
