On a tranquil lucid night Inside this tiny shack of Halloween pumpkin light With slumberous cats purring from bathroom cupboards Entwined in spare sheets A train hoots lonely to the night and moon Chugging tirelessly across this forlorn city Vancouver Carrying the wind in its wake and giving it voice It goes shhhhhhhhh.... Lulling me to sleep and dreams Of travels across slender snaky mountain roads, On starry chilly nights across golden fields and plains With sky that stretches forever And lightening flows spontaneous and free, To vast pine covered forests That hug the winding roads To nowhere Ontario I sink deeper into this time suspension The train whistle dying inside the thick fog With esoteric fading dreams
Written by Diabetics; for Diabetics. Diabetes is now a prevalent condition that affects millions of people. Many of you will have, or most of you will know, someone who has it. This book has been written by a collaboration of medically trained diabetics - not by Medical Practitioners, PhD professors or salespeople. - They are people who until recently struggled to control diabetes with diet, exercise and high levels of glycemic drugs alone. After learning about products made from the Moringa tree, they were able to dramatically lower their blood glucose levels within weeks and continue to do so. They did their research thoroughly and found the pods and leaves of this unique tree dramatically lowered their blood glucose levels quickly, and that continues to be the case. They now want to share their knowledge and extensive research in a simple to understand way, so you too can also benefit from their experience. This book is not about a miracle cure, and the information provided does not claim to be an alternative to diet, exercise, glycemic drugs or for you to ignore your Medical Practitioner's advice. It is an aid, a supplement, which, when combined with the other factors along with your Practitioners supervision, can safely reduce your blood sugar levels, and benefit your health in many other ways. In these pages you will find genuine factual accounts and testimonials. This book will explain a little about diabetes and ways in which the properties of Moringa can help you. It also contains fun recipes and advice on its uses. Diabetics who are struggling with their condition will find this publication invaluable, as will anyone who just wants to learn about a natural product that promotes health and assists to combat other conditions when modern medicine needs help from mother nature
These excerpts from my diaries are the story of a life changed forever by mental illness. I have Schizoaffective Disorder, an incurable condition characterised by symptoms of both schizophrenia and bipolar. These journal entries, snippets of poetry and monologues are laid before you with brutal honesty as I admit my innermost secrets, my bizarre beliefs and musings, and the extremes of emotion as I cycle through endless episodes of depression, mania and psychosis. I present these diaries with a degree of fear and trepidation as I expose the extent of my madness, for there is still great stigma and misunderstanding of mental illness and those who suffer with it. In publishing these diaries, I hope that for those of you who wish to learn and understand that this book will give you some insight. For those of you who suffer too, I hope that you will take some comfort in knowing you are not alone.
