Each poem has its own reason for being. Like people, each has a unique form and voice. A potpourri is a mixture, a medley, a miscellaneous hodgepodge of things not usually placed together, as in a book such as this. Gathered from a large collection of poems written over many years, some reflect emotions or events from personal experience. Some share observations of others, or reflections on life´s meaning. These selections, arranged in no particular order or style, are designed to present frequent surprises. Enjoy.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Becky Doughty.

This is a how-to guide for awesomeness, albeit told from someone who struggles to attain such a glorious ideal. The book outlines 24 different methods for improving one´s life using a variety of studies, books, concepts, and good old personal experience to do so. The book highlights five major areas of life: productivity, conquering fear, wellness, relationships, and money and provides practical steps to improve each. Examples of such awesomeness-increasing activities include speed reading, ´´single-tasking´´ instead of multitasking, minimalism, embracing mistakes, and avoiding arguments. It is my sincerest hope that this book will aid its listeners along the path to achieve the awesomeness each of us deserves. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jacob York.

Sitting on the porch step, Jeremiah´s beautiful letter still in her hand, Cecelia remembered that spring morning...when she heard the gunshot. She stood perhaps a dozen yards away. The burly, red-headed Virginian leered threateningly at Jeremiah, hand poised on his gun, ´´You better get out of my way, slave, or you´re dead meat.´´ Jeremiah, assisting an old lady crossing the street, calmly answered, ´´I´m a free man, sir, and I´ll get out of your way just as soon as I help this lady.´´ The gun exploded. Jeremiah fell, and the horse galloped by. Cecelia found herself running, crying out for someone to carry him onto the sidewalk...no one stirred, though there were a dozen early-morning shoppers gawking on the street. He was only a black man after all. This is the love story of the daughter of an Italian immigrant woman and an African-American man. Their love for each other, others, and Jesus Christ fight bravely against the hatred of others and sings a victory song over racism. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Royal Jaye.
