Explanation of the Book:

What happens when attraction becomes affection? It is when you see the person, you heave a sigh. It is when you see their smile, your dismal day becomes sunny and bright. It is when you hear their voice, you go uh-oh while your heart dances a do-si-do. It is when you look into their eyes and all of a sudden, thousands of shooting stars flicker and a vibrant moon bow starts illuminating the night sky. And endless thoughts about the person start inhabiting your mind and you can not stop musing. Musing, thats what happens when attraction becomes affection. It is when you still see them, even if you close your eyes. It is when you smile every time you think of them. It is when you dance even to a silent tune. It is when your normal day becomes extraordinary just because you remember them! Now, all your days and nights are occupied with thoughts of them and your journal is filled with your Musings.

Explanation of the Book:

What is the origin of music? In the last few decades this centuries-old puzzle has been reinvigorated by new archaeological evidence and developments in the fields of cognitive science, linguistics, and evolutionary theory. Starting at a period of human prehistory long before Homo sapiens or music existed, Tomlinson describes the incremental attainments that, by changing the communication and society of prehuman species, laid the foundation for musical behaviors in more recent times. He traces in Neandertals and early sapiens the accumulation and development of these capacities, and he details their coalescence into modern musical behavior across the last hundred millennia

Explanation of the Book:

This is a collection of short narratives of some of my life’s encounters with people, both socially and in sports events. Life cannot exist without food and drink and so naturally, a few stories on bread, cheese and the amber nectar get an airing as well as my favorite pub. Work and play feature greatly in our lives and I have included some of my contributions, hopefully positive ones, from my life’s travails. For most people their pets are very important to their well being so our now deceased, but amazing Silly Billy the cat, gets his own story. The reader can select a story in the order that catchers their interest. Enjoy.

Explanation of the Book:

Over the past too many decades I’ve been watching the world turn every which way it can and shaking my head in wonder. However, I didn’t just wonder, I wrote a lot of my thoughts down and they were published in a number of different newspapers. Those random thoughts ranged from family life to current affairs and that most easily teased slice of life called ‘work’. My musings are often humorous, it’s hard not to laugh at our neighbors, as Jane Austen remarked two hundred years ago, and progress does often make things worse, as Agatha Christie commented only a hundred years ago. Sometimes, however, my musings weren’t intended to be humorous but even then they were not meant to be unpleasant, there’s enough of that in all the other things you’ll watch and read out there. So, if you’re in the mood for whiling away a very short span of time reading how someone from a different planet (or so I’m often told) sees the world, this short book is where you need to be.

Explanation of the Book:

It is often said that in polite conversation the topics of religion and politics should be avoided but how long can most of us carry an engaging conversation on the weather? One who is concerned about the directions in which this nation is moving must necessarily discuss controversial topics. Have the labels liberal and conservative outlived their usefulness? Is liberalism truly a bad word? What are conservatives trying to conserve? Is it possible to rise above the din of partisan debate? These brief essays are critical comments on society, politics and religion in which the author avoids the pitfalls of extremism. The author, a minister of the Lutheran Church and with an interest in education, sees danger in extreme positions, religious or political, noting that the "right" produced Mussolini's Fascism and Hitler's Nazism whereas the "left" resulted in Stalinist Communism. Against rigid, absolutist positions as well as spineless relativism, one is reminded of the church mouse who once delivered a pertinent aphorism: "If you stand in the middle of the road, the traffic in two directions will flatten you into road kill" (Essay 10). The point is that controversial topics must not be ignored. Problems of narrowness, for example, have been tackled by the author in Essay 6, which begins with this paragraph: Some years ago an acquaintance who liked to speak in grand terms said to me in all seriousness, "My philosophy is the pursuit of happiness". It was narrow and egocentric but at the time I had no response. However, now, many years later, I have an answer to that unforgotten statement, thanks to a guest at St. James. Last month Dr. William Foege ... [from the Carter Center and Emory University], speaking at St. James, stated that there have been many attempts to define civilization. One of these is happiness, which caused him to wonder whether a three-year-old with a chocolate might be more civilized than the parents.
