Dr. Frances Kostarelos, Professor, Anthropology and Political and Justice Studies Governors State University Can illness be a gift? It can be a part of lifes great journey. Genuine healing transcends the elimination of illness. Viewed as an opportunity to grow, we learn how to bring our lives back into balance and realize our true potential. Illness can force us to explore the meaning and purpose of our lives, and our relationships. It can lead us to examine our own mortality, what we have become, and how we wish others to remember us. It can guide us to understand how the many other events of our lives can move us into healing, While cancer, AIDS, and other life-threatening diseases have facilitated many to transform their lives, for each of us, life itselfand all our illnessescan be the great journey into healing; the greatest journey well ever take. The great transformation from an unexamined life bound by the pain of separation from others, into the awareness that ones essence connects with all others in the unity of spirit, is the gift of life. Illness can be a vehicle to get us there. All the people described in these pages took that journey. From their accounts we learn how they were transformed, and how they came to accept their illnesses as gifts.

The Day My Mother Changed Her Name and Other Stories
William Kaufman grew up on his mother’s kugel and his father’s boyhood stories. The son of Jewish immigrants from Lithuania and the Ukraine and one of five children, he learned how to translate his colorful childhood into tales of his own, regaling audiences of family, friends, and eventually his retirement community with periodic public readings. Now, at the age of 93, Kaufman makes his stories, filled with a sharp wit and telling detail, available to a wider audience for the first time. In the title story a young Jewish boy is shamed by his narrow-minded teacher when she forces him to admit, before the whole class, that his mother cannot read English. His mother’s eventual encounter with the teacher offers a lesson in self-respect with just the right balance of grace and moxie. In “The Search for God in the A & P” a young boy goes on a clandestine mission to compare prices at his father’s grocery competition; the expedition meets with comic results when the young boy refuses to be bullied in this David-and-Goliath-style parable. These semi-autobiographical stories, populated with outsized and magnetic characters, subtly layer the specifics of the Jewish experience with universals dilemmas of childhood, growing up, and old age.

An Exploration of Truth
A story of adventure, friendship, love, betrayal and war. "The WAR OF ANGELS" takes us into a magical existence where heaven, hell and earth become one canvas for this epic story. Archangels, led by Michael and Sataniel (Satan) collide once more with the fury of the heavens, with man and earth trapped between they and their armies, their futures hanging on the outcome of the battle. Three SETI scientists capture a satellite photo of the arrival of a mysterious being that has the power to alter man's future and change the course of the world. On a remote Italian mountainside, the ancient secret order of monks known as the Montiarans encounter a visitor (The Archangel Michael) whose presence could mean peace for the world or the end of days. Michael, while searching for his enemies, unknowingly risks all when he falls in love with a human woman, Charlie. Lowering his defenses and assuming temporary human form to be with her, he is mortally wounded, trapping him in his human state.. Leading his army now will surely mean his death. But the warrior summons his remaining strength and courage and charges onto the battlefield. Earth. Millions upon millions of Angels clash, destroying everything in their paths. The world explodes into mayhem as the stage is set for the largest battle the earth has ever seen and whose outcome will herald a new era for man. Will the days to come be the foretold thousand years of peace? Or is it the dawn of the rule of the beast? When the end is near, the world will take sides. Which side will you choose? "And then night came upon the earth and the sun never again touched the face of man." www.DarrenDowler.com www.RockandRolltheMovie.com www.myspace.com/DarrenDowlerMusic www.myspace.com/TheWarOfAngels
