“The space lattice of our love, as I leave it behind:
Photographs and letters mothballed, dehumidified
Forgotten, left in bound stacks, folios of folly…
…Let’s follow the fissure through the crystal,
a serpentine highway littered with memories…”

FIVE SEEDS ENCLOSED IN A CAPSULE reads like a broadcast from the farthest corner of the universe; or maybe a microphone injected into the gray matter. They're songs penned to clear away the darkness, words of love, or death, or sorrow, or joy, written on an arrow, fired through the ever-thickening flesh of the Modern human, a rage against the ever-shrinking possibility of an Absolute Connection between two human beings in a concrete world full of artificially scented plastic flowers.

He lives in the Boston area and is currently working towards an MFA in Creative Writing. 0 AiZA NicOle CaNIno 9781469702438 I Hope I Look That Good When I'm That Old: An Older African-American Woman Speaks To All Women in All of America Dona Irvin 01/14/2002 Biography & Autobiography / People of Color The title of this book repeats compliments to the author and her chronological mates from younger women who recognize something in their presence that engenders consideration of a gratifying existence beyond middle age. The chapters describe Dona Irvin's journey from childhood to older age, facing individual milestones that improved every stage of development, and her victories over low esteem through a long marriage, sustained friendships, a successful career, and a comforting spiritual foundation. The author explores her attitudes about evolving personal and societal conditions, spirituality, sexuality, and the uncertainties of the elder years. This book is the story of the continuing pleasures and the real challenges of life as an elder. Born in Victoria, Texas in 1917, Dona L. Irvin migrated to California in 1942 at age twenty-five, with her husband and two small children. After retirement in 1982, she pursued a career in writing. Her first book, The Unsung Heart of Black America, was published in 1992. 0 AiZA NicOle CaNIno 9781469786926 Flowers For Cina Ernest Hedges 05/20/2002 Biography & Autobiography / General "When children are growing up they are not interested in family history. If I should bring the subject up the answer would usually be, “I know Dad, when you were young you milked ten cows before breakfast and walked ten miles to school – in the snow!”. It wasn’t that they didn’t care they were not interested. However, when they married and had children of their own they wanted to know more of the family history so they could pass it on to their children.
“Dad, we don’t know anything about your family history, fill us in.” Now they were interested. That started me to thinking. I didn’t know much about my family tree. I would give anything to know more about my parent’s background and everyday life when they were growing up, guess I never asked! It occurred to me if I started writing a few facts about myself, in two or three generations future grandchildren would know.
People who have read my story have said it has given them the idea to do the same for their children. One of the many reasons for writing Flowers For Cina, is to encourage parents to write about their everyday life." Ernest R. Hedges was born in Kansas on October 19, 1911. He entered the army in 1942 and was married in 1945. He was a baker for 42 years and now lives in Florida still bakin
