Seasons Of Mind : Douglas Thornton

Seasons Of Mind This is the work of someone who has tried to gain insight into the growth of his mind by observance of the things that affect it. Therefore, it is neither free of fault, nor oblivious to what it has tried to accomplish, that of setting forth an interpretation of the poetic spirit. These texts were composed during the years 2011-2012 in the silent hours at a desk, or in some instances, in the middle of a field, separate from one another, but all bearing towards that same idea of understanding. This is perhaps why the book will be uninteresting to most, but to those of a reflective nature might such a perusal bring an unexpected vision, or

None Yards! 30 Years of John Madden in the Broadcast Booth John Madden, the churning, eruptive Oakland Raiders head coach, quit the sideline for good in early 1979. By the winter of ’81, he had become pro football’s premier TV analyst in a dazzling, rocketing shot to the top. For nearly three decades, he remained there. Former NBC announcer Charlie Jones once said, “John Madden is one of those people who has IT, whatever IT is. That extra star-quality within their profession. You know it when you see it. Tom Cruise has IT. John Elway has IT. So does John Madden.” For Madden, IT was the ability to deliver pro football to his audience in a widely consumable style. From

The Time Was Right Untold stories of a small town’s greatest athletic era. Incorporated in 1909, Orland isn’t much different from other rural towns in Northern California’s Sacramento Valley. Life happens just a tad slower, nut orchards line the sides of country roads for as far as the eye can see, and high school football games are still played under the lights every Friday night. Yes, things in this small farming community seem to have gone unchanged for some time now. There was a time, though, when the town buzzed with excitement and livelihood – a time when its athletic teams matched up with and defeated some of the west coast’s biggest sports powerhouses, including Oregon state champion Medford High

Noël: Of Memories and Sleep : Benjamin Boudreaux

Noël: Of Memories and Sleep The town of Beauséjour, located in Southern Louisiana, is home to many Cajuns and Creoles, who are happy to spend their days fishing and crabbing; tilling and sowing; eating, drinking, and laughing. But this town is also home to sinister secrets, which are soon to be unearthed by a child of thirteen summers by the name of Noël Broussard, as well as his friends Évangéline Lejeune, Marc Lejeune, and Amédé Fontenot. Many strange and terrible things occur, such as denizens visited in their dreams by a nightmarish entity; children selectively spirited from their homes by a demonic creature; and telltale signs of a wolf-like being infecting hapless wayfarers.

Echoes of Evil Separated by nearly a century, Rowan and Bobby Lexington are both all alone in the world. Their mothers are dead, and they’ve been left in the care of strangers. Worse yet, they hear screams that no one else hears. “People do evil things to each other every day”, Sister Bernadine tells Bobby at the orphanage. “I believe those evil deeds cling to them–following them wherever they go, even as they go about their business and pretend they’ve done nothing wrong. I think you can hear echoes–the echoes of the evil deeds people are desperate to hide. You are special, Bobby Lexington.” It’s a gift neither Bobby nor Rowan wanted. But they must learn how to use it
