The Diary Of Rolling Stone Lone Ranger

by J.S. Salk

This is a deeply affecting, candid journal, with minor edits in brackets, that begins with the acceptance of a commercial advertising gig in January 1994 and follows a “rolling stone” existence through a corporate merger and unexpected fatherhood. The “lone ranger” self-romantic crosses the country from New York to California and Utah in search of happiness.
I have thought while keeping long-term journals in hard cover, “What use they could have?” Now, anyone can look over dark disclosures, ideas, plans, and thoughts to see what one person did with his life by reading the series. it could inspire others to keep journals and learn from mistakes that were originally written with no audience. Consequently, you have a private look into an “everyman” from 1994-1995 with the jargon and parlance of the time, unedited. An incredible adventure is about to begin.
Only names of people and a few businesses have been changed because of the private nature of the book.

About the Author:
Salk lives in San Diego, CA with his wife and son. Since graduating from the University of Utah and Baruch College (CUNY) he has written twenty books. Prior to publishing he worked at New York ad agency, Lintas: Worldwide – now named after multiple mergers, Lowe & Partners.

Three Guidelines for Ethical Living: What My Daughter Taught Me (Spirituality in the Postmodern World)

by Kenneth P. Langer

Is it possible to be ethical without being religious? For a very long time, moral training was always a part of religious teaching. The idea was that the spiritual life meant not only knowing the divine but living out its principles. Soon moral and religious teaching became intertwined to the point that people believed a lack of spiritual training also meant a lack of moral development. But, ethics does not have to be relegated to the exclusive domain of the church, mosque, or synagogue. We can learn to live well together simply because we all want to coexist in a peaceful and kind world.

When my daughter was born I wanted to give her the chance to seek out her own spiritual path but with a moral compass that she could take with her. I searched for something simple yet capable of growing and developing as she did. Comparing different traditions I came up with three words. They are small words, simple words, yet they are capable of great shades of meaning and subtlety and, together, can provide a lifetime of guidance and direction.

A Long and Winding Road: A Caregiver’s Tale of Life, Love, and Chaos

by Linda Brendle

Alzheimer’s is a family disease, and A Long and Winding Road is a love storyâ??not a boy-meets-girl love story, but a family love story:

The story of the love of a daughter for her parents and her willingness to take them into her home when they could no longer care for themselves;

The story of a mother and father who loved their daughter but no longer remembered exactly where they were or why;

The story of a husband who loved his wife so much that he stood beside her as they fought to survive the ravages of the brain-wasting disease that was stealing her loved ones away a piece at a time.

It’s also the story of a seven-week trip for four across sixteen U.S. states in a forty-foot motor homeâ??a trip that involved stopped up toilets, wet jeans, laughter, and headaches that were far from the easygoing retirement the Brendles had imagined for themselves.

Linda Brendle takes you on a roller-coaster ride of emotional and spiritual challenges that many families are facing right now. Co-dependency, mental breakdowns, and finding love after divorce are just a few of the issues weaved into this journey of caregiving.

A LONG AND WINDING ROAD: A Caregiver’s Tale of Life, Love, and Chaos is the story of the chaos that happens when four people, two of whom have Alzheimer’s, spend fifty-three days in a 400-square-foot box on wheels.
