This collection of poems is the result of past events in my life, some good others not so. From childhood, teenage rebellion and into adult life, after all it is the events and encounters that shape our future whether good or bad. Memories have always refused to remain idle in the far reaches of my mind, for they always seem to pop up at various times, as does the imagery and emotions that accompany them. Dreams also have played their part, as a child I loved the stories of ancient Greece, especially that of Orpheus in the underworld and Perseus, add a pinch of fairy-tale, Celtic and Nordic legends, together with old films and TV shows. The final ingredient that made an impact was poetry, especially the works of POE, KEATS, BYRON, and my favourite PERCY SHELLEY, who throughout my teenage years made such an impact upon my working-class mind.

"I am about to tell you a most unusual story, a chronicle of something that happened to me while I was living on the flank of an active volcano on the island of Hawai'i. I'm a scientist. I mention this because I do not feel that I was in any way predisposed for what was about to occur. In fact, my scientific training would seem to have preprogrammed me against such an experience." -- From Spiritwalker The astonishing true story of an anthropologist's quest into a spiritual world of magic, mysticism, and meaning. Not since Castaneda's tutelage under the Yacqui Indian guide Don Juan has there been a spiritual autobiography quite like Spiritwalker. Hank Wesselman's incredible story of a series of encounters that would forever change his life began with what he at first tried to explain away as particularly vivid dreams, but which grew increasingly intense and insistent, ultimately propelling him on twelve fantastic journeys across time and space. Over the next three years, his journeys proved to be far more important than mere reason could explain. Eventually, Dr. Wesselman became convinced that he'd been granted a visionary encounter with what tribal people from millennia past have called the "spirit world." During his epic travels, Dr. Wesselman met shape-shifting entities, spirit helpers, and guardians, and found himself traversing a mental, physical, and spiritual landscape on a path intersecting that of a fellow traveler, a Hawai'ian kahuna mystic named Nainoa. Five thousand years into the future, Nainoa had been sent by his Chief on a journey into what used to be America, a once-powerful land of machines and magic, from which no previous voyagers had ever returned. What did Nainoa seek from Dr. Wesselman? What did the anthropologist have to learn about his own world from this exotic traveler from another time and place? Together, scientist and mystic are initiated into knowledge of non-ordinary levels of reality and given foreshadowings of imminent environmental, political, and spiritual challenges to their civilization. Without abandoning his scientific objectivity, Dr. Wesselman abandoned himself to the mystical, sometimes frightening, yet always luminous experiences that brought him beyond the boundaries of ordinary consciousness. The result is a fascinating and suspenseful adventure, an exciting and important archeological discovery, and the story of how a hard-headed scientific-realist stumbled on an important piece of the puzzle of human evolution. Socially urgent and disturbingly prophetic, Spiritwalker has a universal mythic resonance and an undeniable relevance for today as it challenges our perceptions of our world, our reality, and our future.

Poems by Currer Ellis and Acton Bell

"Then, glancing back on Time's brief woes, Will he behold them, fading, fly; Swept
from Eternity's repose, Like sullying cloud ... quiet, final sleep; "Think ofthe
glorious wakinghour, Which will not dawnon grief and tears, But on a ransomed
spirit's power, ... "Whenwords, half love, all tenderness, Were hourly heard, as
hourly spoken, When the long, sunny days of bliss Only by moonlight nights were
broken.

An adventure-filled romp through one of aviation’s most notable, dangerous and entertaining pursuits: airshows! In the early days of aviation, all flights were airshows. Spectators gathered whenever a new flying machine attempted to leave the ground—the trick was to get them to pay. Takeoffs and landings did not sell tickets but people lined up, money in hand, to watch a “dip of death,” in which an aviator would dive from as high as he or she dared and pull up at the last second. Risk always sells and flying was man’s riskiest endeavor yet. From the start the “exhibition pilots” stood out. Everything about an aerobatic routine requires a degree of skill and a commitment to practice inconceivable to even most pilots, presenting innumerable risks to life and limb. And with risk, often, comes tragedy. The Crowd Pleasers is a sweeping history of air show accidents beginning in 1910 with the death of Charles Rolls, co-founder of Rolls-Royce, and ending in the present day. It brings to light some of the most notable air show accidents of all time and explores the aviators behind them. Their stories, their motivations. In so doing, it illuminates the role played by choice, social circumstance and fate in these often devastating accidents, and the lives attached to them. A must-read for all aviation buffs.

In the wonder of thought, things pop into the mind in the same generation of substancein the subjects that distinguish the areas that surround use of their circumstances. Images intern relative pictures that control the terms we provide in use of thoughtin regard usually to destination and, indeed, where such things may be heading and why we should be led in any direction, either by persuasion or for a joke, which we may invite, if and when, we can see the details negotiating the things that are likely to be joining us when we arrive. And we are able to see what we are in for, and why we should be asked to make it a consideration, as in the words, Whats in it for me? As, indeed, we need to understand all the qualified improvements, if any, that we are likely to find or make or be able to facilitate or whether we should forget all about it and say no and just keep on as usual. If, at any time, reason pops up that it may be a request with a real and proper question attached, it is sometimes the challenge for the need to be straight up front and avoiding such issuesthat always come up with a ticket included for someones day out. Whether or not it has to be us or has to be seen first or maybe we need to find out whats so funny about ridiculous lengths to make sense of things that only usually come with a set amount of words. Need for any more words only spells mischief. Poetry comes with a smooth mental picture in value of the taste and style possessed in creating the verses that make common sayings regard hard facts with a qualified few words for the measure of the day.
