A Light Touch: Flowing Enlightenment With Howard Wills by Richard Diamond
Although countless stories have been written about Enlightenment, Enlightenment defies all definitions of what it is. There is simply no clear definition of Enlightenment. The meaning is as elusive as the shape-shifting cloud blown across the sky by the wind. First it takes on one shape, then another, and then another.

You Must Believe in Spring! by William Cathers
You Must Believe in Spring! is the true story of Nicaraguan piano virtuoso Donald Vega and his heroic struggle to launch a career, restore his health and create a future in America. In 1986, Donald's mother and stepfather fled Nicaragua and on July 4, 1989, fifteen-year-old Donald entered the United States to rejoin them in Los Angeles. Poverty stricken, Donald practiced on a makeshift cardboard keyboard, but his bigger obstacles were the gradual loss of his hearing due to a severe cleft palate, and the threat of deportation back to Nicaragua. Despite this, Vega embraced his journey with courage, joy and wisdom as he did battle with forces which threaten to engulf him.

Making the Transition to a Zero Waste World
Picture the myriad coffee houses that sprinkle the island of O`ahu (indeed the whole state) like poppy seeds on a NY-style bagel. Watch the population of O`ahu enjoy their morning cappuchino, mid-morning frappuchino and pau hana cup of Joe all served in plastic, Styrofoam* or paper cups with matching lids for each. Drift to lunchtime in Honolulu and note the infamous plate lunches tightly packed into polystyrene Styrofoam containers snugly wrapped in plastic bags.
