Most beautiful butterfly, sun of burning love, you shined in my life,

A winter’s cold wind led your voyage to the Divine Sanctuary,

Crossing the rainbow you extended your wings of hope,

But you left us the bonds of your abiding love.

Jesus, infallible Way, guiding Star and Light of the world,

Life and death are amalgamated in the blue of the sky,

Vapors of the waters, God’s infinite love crying out in rains,

Revelation, understanding, signs of faith and everlasting life!

The cocoon is ephemeral, the flight is near, and the destiny is sublime,

The true Light illuminates the arrival.


Mariposa hermosísima, sol de amor ardiente que brillaste en mi vida,

Viento frío del invierno condujo tu viaje al Santuario Divino,

Cruzando el arcoíris extendiste tus alas de esperanza,

Mas los lazos de tu amor inquebrantable nos dejaste.

Jesús, Camino infalible, Estrella que orienta y Luz del mundo,

Vida y muerte se amalgaman en el azul del cielo,

Vapores de las aguas, infinito amor de Dios gritando en lluvias,

¡Revelación, entendimiento, señales de fe y vida eterna!,

Efímero el capullo, cercano el vuelo, sublime el destino,

La Luz verdadera ilumina la llegada.

Facing Up to Change: Family Money Love

An intricate novel about how changes in family dynamic can ignite the flame of personal reawakening. Gloria Beaton is a self-made woman of substance. Defined by her trailblazing spirit, she is shunned by the new influences who have overtaken her Ontario establishment family and tainted it with dysfunctionality. Having recently ended a loveless marriage, at forty-nine, she finds herself cultivating a dual career and developing a relationship with a mesmerizing man twelve years her junior, Canadian-born Raj Mukherjee. As her family’s once burgeoning business flounders, Gloria is torn by having to make a painful decision: Should she once and for all embrace her own happiness, widening the divide between her and her kin? Or should she continue to protect her family’s values and traditions, sacrificing her need to be true to herself? Loyalties are tested, roles shift, and the tables inevitably turn. Facing Up to Change shines a light on how inextricably and, sometimes, painfully family, money, and love are linked.

Do you ever think family life has become too organized, neat and tidy?

"Messy Spaces, Smiling Faces" is a story in praise of messiness, a tribute to how to provide a home and a childhood that nurtures this spirit of discovery, without caring about the appearances it creates.

Every Bite Affects the World: an Earth Care Cookbook for Joyful, Mindful Eating

Every Bite Affects the World helps us be mindful of the connections between what we eat and the health of our bodies, as well as the health of the soil, water, climate, communities and farmers both here and far away. The book invites you to be part of the journey.

“Combining original recipes, inspirational quotes, and reflections on our relationship with food and the land that produces it, Every Bite Affects the World is at once mouth-watering and thought-provoking.”

– Ryan Meili, MD, author of A Healthy Society.

“This book takes people back to being connected to the land, knowing that natural plants grown without pesticides provide highly nutritious meals. First Nations' diets often included these plants. Also growing food this way is taking care of the soil, our Mother Earth, to feed future generations. I look forward to making many of the recipes, and learning from the information in Every Bite Affects the World.”

Behind These Doors Chanting Hare Krishna

This is the author’s third volume of collected poetry and falls under the category of religious verse, yet many poems talk about the fate of women in society and what happens when innocent girls fall by the wayside. The last narrative poem, entitled “The Monks of Saint Mark’s Street”, is actually inspired by Keats’ fragment by the name of “St. Mark’s Eve”, which he did not finish before his death. She wrote these poems with strong misgivings about the ethical state of societies today, superficial media culture and materialism, pornography, and female sexual harassment. Other poems are meant to praise God and Creation, and a number of them are about friendship.

Termcraft: The emergence of terminology science from the Vinčans and Sumerians to Aristotle

Termcraft is a world-heritage story. It chronicles the origins of naming, writing, and reasoning through the prisms of terminology science and linguistics. Revolving around Greek philosophy, early mythology, and primitive pottery and rock marking, it reveals how the Term became the keystone of scientific research, knowledge transfer, and economic development. Speech and writing are posited as referential systems used to control space and time, thereby ensuring survival. Ice Age symbols inaugurate 'signs for special purposes', and Balkan Vinčan logograms and later Sumerian and Egyptian pictograms point to Languages for Special Purposes, with determinatives marking technical concepts. The doctrines of ideas, naming, and being are scrutinized; their interaction with cosmic order and individuation through boundaries is illustrated with a deified ‘Creating Word’ from Mesopotamia, Egypt, and The Levant. The logic of the Word's role in self-defining and reasoning, both analogous and prognosticative, is analyzed. A perception-processing tool, the Logos, is identified in the first definition of ‘definition’ and ‘term’, and in syllogistic substitutions; when used together with Aristotelian categories of thought, they clarify language and discourse. What emerges is a fool-proof, thought-testing matrix based on a new systemic Word, the Term—the paradigm of today’s information bytes.

Applied Physics in Policing: The Science Behind Collision Reconstruction

This book is designed to assist all those who pursue justice in cases involving collision reconstruction evidence. The book is based on the author’s formal education, his experience in the field, and his experience with the courts.

This book is a reference book and was designed with the following goals:

To provide police investigators with a scientific foundation of the collision reconstruction tools they are taught;

To provide tools to assist investigators in analyzing relatively complex scenarios requiring the use of a series of equations

To better prepare the investigator to communicate the analysis of physical evidence; and,

To provide a common understanding and language between police, prosecutors, defence attorneys, and engineers.

The reader is progressively taken from the motion of vehicles, to the identification of physical evidence, to the recording of physical evidence, to the analysis and communication of the physical evidence. The progression flows easily, and the content is such that it will provide a valuable reference to all those involved in the field of collision investigation.

Her hurting pulled her over the edge, into the abyss of suicide, but the wings of awe and truth lifted her beyond that dark void and guided her to a different way.

Jasmine has always felt different from the crowd. Often finding herself standing outside of the circle, looking in, she has never quite belonged. Her parents disapprove of her. Her peers turn their backs. A trusted friend betrays her. And just when it seems that things could not get any worse, her career aspirations come crashing down. Why? Why can’t she get anything right? There seems to be nowhere left to go; nothing remains except the pain. Enough! All Jasmine wants is for the hurting to stop . . . to end . . . to never hurt again. But then she feels it—the lightest of all touches, as of wings, whispering of the way out of the darkness.

Why? tells a story of how even the deepest anguish can be conquered, allowing one to soar to the heights of hope, inner peace, and self-acceptance.
