Life and its experiences are something that we can all look at and no matter what the experience, relate it to ourselves. Doing this helps us to cope and deal with the things that we have going on in our minds and are unsure what to think about them. A Breath Of Fresh Ayr is a collection of writings and thoughts, my way of expressing my troubles, trials, and tribulations, as well as my triumphs, testaments, and tutelage. Everyone in life loves, has felt love, and has felt the pain from the love once it’s gone. Everyone has lost someone, found someone, lost themselves, and somewhere along the journey, regained their mentality peace by piece. Within these pages are the pieces of mentality, and while I still search for my peace of mind, I hope you enjoy these pieces of it.

Twelve thousand years ago, heroes and antagonists were made. Civilizations were starting to flourish. Within their social structures there was love, honor, and friendship. On the other side of the spectrum, there was also greed, fear, and power. Within the last one hundred years, archeologists and paleontologists unearthed a new world. After the Ice age, archeologists discovered civilizations with architectural buildings and commerce. Paleontologists have proof of animals which were not like we are accustomed to today. They have uncovered giant sloths, mammoths, giant rhinos, and giant elk, all living amongst the civilizations before written history. So far, Atlantis is a legend. In those legends there had to be a leader and hero that brought Atlantis together. The story of Atlandreous unfolds as Duncan, a present day archeologist, visions the beginning of the Atlantean Empire.

Dax Daley is no superhero. But then, neither are his other classmates. At least they're not heroes YET - that's what they're being taught at Scragmoor Prime, a school for children with special powers. Dax would much rather explore the creepy chapel outside the school grounds - the one with the eerie painted people on the wall - than try to be a hero. But the chapel walls hide a dark secret... and Dax discovers that Scragmoor's previous criminal inmates aren't quite as dead as he'd hoped.

The Honourable Aleck is the true story of the life and times of Alexander Rocke Robertson and Margaret Bruce Eberts, Aleck's beloved wife 'Maggie'. Born and raised in Chatham, Upper Canada, 'Aleck' Robertson came to British Columbia in 1864 as a young lawyer, and became one of BC's most eminent citizens. Well-known and highly respected in BC's courtrooms, he was also Mayor of Victoria, a member of BC's first provincial Cabinet, and BC's first Canadian-born Supreme Court Judge, all before his untimely death at the age of 40. The combining of the colonies of Vancouver Island and British Columbia, and then confederation with Canada, give a dramatic backdrop to the story. Aleck's passionate correspondence with Maggie throughout their lives, and their warm and loving family life with their many sons in early Victoria, show the human side of those turbulent times in early BC.

Laughing in the Shadow of Bullets is almost a four decades long ring side as also the grand stand view of the Army Life as seen, heard and experienced by a lady married to an Army Officer—an Infantry Soldier. She recounts and recapitulates various hilarious incidents along with their manifestations and that apart from making you laugh bring to fore the unmistakable spirit to do or die that can be vividly seen only among these men of arms who are always ready to ‘slay or sacrifice’ when the trumpet blows and duty calls. These pages in your hands thus afford you an introduction; a familiarisation to your Army. The narratives are primarily aimed at making you smile and are an attempt to dilute the adverse impact of contemporary interminable assault of tension on our collective life style.

Historical accounts of major events have almost always relied upon what those who were there witnessed. Nowhere is this truer than in the nerve-shattering chaos of warfare, where sight seems to confer objective truth and acts as the basis of reconstruction. In The Smell of Battle, the Taste of Siege, historian Mark M. Smith considers how all five senses, including sight, shaped the experience of the Civil War and thus its memory, exploring its full sensory impact on everyone from the soldiers on the field to the civilians waiting at home. From the eardrum-shattering barrage of shells announcing the outbreak of war at Fort Sumter; to the stench produced by the corpses lying in the mid-summer sun at Gettysburg; to the siege of Vicksburg, once a center of Southern culinary aesthetics and starved into submission, Smith recreates how Civil War was felt and lived. Relying on first-hand accounts, Smith focuses on specific senses, one for each event, offering a wholly new perspective. At Bull Run, the similarities between the colors of the Union and Confederate uniforms created concern over what later would be called "friendly fire" and helped decide the outcome of the first major battle, simply because no one was quite sure they could believe their eyes. He evokes what it might have felt like to be in the HL Hunley submarine, in which eight men worked cheek by jowl in near-total darkness in a space 48 inches high, 42 inches wide. Often argued to be the first "total war," the Civil War overwhelmed the senses because of its unprecedented nature and scope, rendering sight less reliable and, Smith shows, forcefully engaging the nonvisual senses. Sherman's March was little less than a full-blown assault on Southern sense and sensibility, leaving nothing untouched and no one unaffected. Unique, compelling, and fascinating, The Smell of Battle, The Taste of Siege, offers readers way to experience the Civil War with fresh eyes.

Growing up in former East Germany when the Cold War and State-sponsored paranoia were on the rise, life was ¿ when you¿re young ¿ interesting and also fun. However, like many of my friends I sought a better life beyond the borders of the so-called German Democratic Republic. As a well-known Czech writer, who also left his country, once remarked that any authoritarian regime has a comical side to it, which here the reader may find in A missing Page, Between the Sectors, and in Cinema Tickets, which are true stories to the spoken word. In others a literary licence was employed. Wolf Arnold grew up in East and West Germany and came to Canada in the early 1960s. While employed in a non-teaching capacity at the University of Toronto, he wrote and produced videos on art, history and environmental issues. His numerous articles on travel and other subjects have appeared in newspapers and magazines in Canada, the United States, Germany and Australia.

The Bronx, 1891. Virginia Loftin, the boldest of four artistic sisters in a family living in genteel poverty, knows what she wants most: to become a celebrated novelist despite her gender, and to marry Charlie, the boy next door and her first love. When Charlie proposes instead to a woman from a wealthy family, Ginny is devastated; shutting out her family, she holes up and turns their story into fiction, obsessively rewriting a better ending. Though she works with newfound intensity, literary success eludes her—until she attends a salon hosted in her brother’s writer friend John Hopper’s Fifth Avenue mansion. Among painters, musicians, actors, and writers, Ginny returns to herself, even blooming under the handsome, enigmatic John’s increasingly romantic attentions. Just as she and her siblings have become swept up in the society, though, Charlie throws himself back into her path, and Ginny learns that the salon’s bright lights may be obscuring some dark shadows. Torn between two worlds that aren’t quite as she’d imagined them, Ginny will realize how high the stakes are for her family, her writing, and her chance at love.

Soon, we found ourselves running away from our house, with bullets fl ying above our heads, and ending up in a refugee camp. From then on, things got complicated and very hard to deal with. Because of Bill Clinton, who was the president of United States at that time, I ended up in America on March 30, 1998, and started a new beginning and a new chapter of my life in a different way. He gave us a chance to live another life and gave us a chance to become something/someone in life, and I will always be thankful to him for bailing me out of that misery.
