I Bought the Sun For a Dollar by Gary Starta


Can anyone actually buy peace or happiness? Perplexed by the loss of job and fiancé, Timothy Ray makes a symbolic purchase of the sun for a dollar to try to right things in his slightly off course career trajectory. When he stumbles upon a brilliant, cascading sunrise and then a chance meeting with a statuesque blonde he feels his life is about to change for the better but his new girlfriend is a spy, working for a contracted data mining firm.

Undaunted and unaware that Lou Ann is actually Kate, Timothy continues to encourage people via social media to experience how energy is shared between us and the cosmos. Kate and her employer fear Timothy’s hope will threaten the leadership’s status quo. The firm incrementally steps up its spy game and seems to have no remorse about putting Timothy at risk of ridicule and perhaps worse. But Timothy’s biggest threat may come from the very source of his inspiration, the sun itself. Will he be able to save all from a cosmic catastrophe?

Hey! Whose Park Is This? by Marcia Lee


Using humour and her own observations, the author traces her acquisition of Buster, a junkyard rescue, whose high energy leads her to the dog park. The author recounts their adventures and illustrates what happens there. Instinctive dog behaviours, prejudices, dog walkers, aggression and more are covered.

The following explains why I felt I had to write this book. I was literally bombarded with incidents from going to the dog park on a daily basis for three and a half years; in fact, I still go.

One could ask why read a book about the dog park? Surely, those two words say it all. Let’s just go to the dog park, have fun and go home. But, one needs to realize that you are exposing yourself and your dog/s to the dangers of unpredictable animal and human behaviour. People forget that at the dog park common sense flies out of the window. The dogs are thrust into an enclosed area with strange dogs and people and, who knows what will happen?

Not all dogs are sociable and each one has its own distinct personality traits. They can be timid, aggressive, laid back or high-energy. It is far better to go to the dog park with some idea of what to expect as it can be a very enjoyable experience or a downright scary one.

Travel Parenting by Fritz Blackburn


You can send your kid to school, buy her a cellphone and hope for the best. Or you can travel deserts, forests, oceans and mountains and watch her learn what she really needs. You can discipline your child – or you could allow freedom and nature to bring out her potential, animals to teach respect, and exotic cultures to show the common denominator of what is essentially human. 

For a child to learn not only accepted facts, but to think for herself and to be emotionally and spiritually competent, more is needed than conceptual programming as schools do it! A child needs to feel freedom to know freedom, to experience respect to become respectful, and to feel personally responsible for walking her own path! 

Children need to learn from real life, in real ways, not just copy what is suggested by their own culture!

When fully under their own steam as travellers, children can become heroes! They can invent their own action movie and their own fairy-tale, and experience self-respect as valuable and competent members of various groups rather than just by “their” culture alone! Respected children make competent life choices! They are authors of their actions and their mental and emotional development. They know active discipline, because they are not passively “disciplined”. They keep their dignity!

Parent and child can then become a team where everybody learns and grows, not just the child.

Excerpt:

The most effective way to parent a child lies not in any fanciful psychology or brilliant strategy, but in delegation, particularly in delegating to the wisdom of Nature! We simply can and do not know what children really need to evolve optimally towards all they can become, and we do not have the mental artillery needed to address those hidden potentials we mostly do not even suspect exist. Only Nature does! Completely! Some scientists may still see the existence of animals and plants as the result of coincidental, unconnected evolution of separate species, and as unrelated to human brain-development. This betrays a surprising lack of insight, shared still by many educational psychologists, which prevents most parents from making optimal use of what Nature, and particularly animals, could do for their kid.

I used to define intelligence as the ability to solve problems, which would probably make the ants of the Philippines the most highly intelligent life-form on this planet. Just try this: Buy your kids a mars bar and tell them to protect it from ants for 3 days before eating it! Watch the ants overcome every trick and manoeuvre your kid can possibly come up with around a nipa-hut! Watch the ensuing duel of wits unfold and prepare to be amazed at just how creative ants are and at how far they can stretch your kid’s creativity while motivating the hell out of her! First, your kids may try a few well-knotted plastic bags all inside each other. The ants bite straight through without losing much speed. Then they might, confidently still, tie the bag to fishing-line dangling from the ceiling. The ants recognize this as a pretty highway through heaven and have a road built up the walls and across the ceiling and down along the fishing line in no time! The kids then put the sweets on a plate into the ashes of the cold fireplace. The ants find a stick they put in place like a bridge, and cross over! Small dish inside large dish filled with water! The ants climb on top of each other until the living tower leans over and falls as a draw-bridge across the gap between the dishes! The rest cross the living bridge! There is no end to the problem-solving ability of ants, and for a clever kid to compete with a hive on equal ground is usually humiliating at first but always extremely rewarding in terms of humility and true understanding of the world.
