Keeping Afloat is a light-hearted tale of John Liley's exploits on the canals of France. John was working for a boating magazine when he was overcome with a dream of owning and operating a hotel-barge in France. Now, thirty years on, he tells of his often hilarious misadventures in the early days of setting up a business that would keep afloat. Characters such as The Whizzer, Mighty Min and Monsieur Bertrand would be unbelievable if they were not true. Barge enthusiasts and landlubbers alike will laugh with and at John's exploits.
'In her new collection, Travis Lane speaks of the 'impermanent elation' that 'a word,/ like a live fish in water, sometimes shows'. The language of 'Keeping Afloat' flashes with wit, sensuousness, and a combination of faith (elation) and scepticism (impermanence). In a time when too many poets favour fragments or the plainest syntax, it's also a relief to read the aphorism 'To read the sentence is to resist fellowship,' from a poet whose own style is welcoming and gymnastic in its joinings and its jumps.' - Brian Bartlett
When my father was first diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, I read and researched everything I could get my hands on about the disease. Right off the bat I could tell if it was written by a physician, pharmaceutical company or even a nursing home. When caregivers are looking for help, the last thing they need is medical text so complex they already forgot what they read by the time it’s laid back down. This is what got me started on writing about common sense caregiving, which turned into a weekly column and now into this book. My goal is to make this book as “caregiver friendly” as possible. Sharing my triumphs and hardships from my plus three-thousand day campaign in dealing with the disease of Alzheimer’s and the world of memory-impairment. Gary Joseph LeBlanc is a columnist, speaker and book dealer from Spring Hill, Florida. He was the primary caregiver of his beloved father stricken with Alzheimer’s disease for nearly the past decade. LeBlanc’s weekly column appears in the Hernando Today, a Tampa Tribune Publication and other health publications. His writings offer insight and hope through his own journey of caregiving, dealing with the memory-impaired, given in a caregiver friendly manner.
This book provides, with amazing simplicity of style, a reassuring insight into the Christian doctrine of divine grace with particular reference to the Parable of The Prodigal Son . Apart from outlining why we need grace, the author traces the history of grace through the various dispensations of human existence. The book attempts to answer the question as to why something as invaluable as salvation has no price tag. The profound love shown by the father in the parable to both his sons is a reminder that our lives, comfort, welfare and our souls are of great value to God. The doctrine of divine grace provides a reassurance that salvation is a gift but only to those who believe in the sacrificial and redemptive death of Jesus Christ. However, grace should never be a license for sin.
