5.0 out of 5 stars Straightforward account of a fantastic journey, October 6, 2012
Like the title suggests, there are interesting people stories and then there are profound journeys. As autobiographies go, this book is anything but run-of-the-mill, and well beyond an "interesting account." Rather than a mere recounting of her experiences, Mrs. Joslin draws us through the life of a down-to-earth girl faced with near-unearthly challenges brought about by her supernatural perception, all with a writing style that constantly inspires the question, "What might I do were I in her place?" Here, the reader has a rare opportunity to reflect on his or her own life within the context of another's. Her fears and joys are palpable, her struggles and triumphs become our own, and her wisdom and insight merges with ours.

Most enjoyable, highly recommended.


Beautiful Daydreams
Beautiful Daydreams
DVD ~ Cindy Ho
Price: $14.00

5.0 out of 5 stars "Everything is empty...nothing.", March 1, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Beautiful Daydreams (DVD)
"Food is real. Life is not. Let's eat." This film is a delightful whimsy about two friends, Sunday and Deja, who search for meaning when they realize that they're missing something elusive and important in their lives. Sunday wants to be a writer, but she lacks inspiration. Deja loves letters more than anything, but she has never received one. And so begins their quest, leading them along a meandering path full of questions and answers, bizarre and joyful experiences, and meetings with wise folk which lead to more questions and perhaps more answers. "Life is all about randomness," says one guru. "Everybody's related to everybody. It's like we're roommates and the universe is one big dormitory."

Full of comedic moments and interesting insights, "Beautiful Daydreams" is beautifully shot and directed by Christopher Snow. Stars Cindy Ho and Christine Du wonderfully portray the two best friends who search together to find their own ways in the world. The girls are cute, funny and work well together with many moments worth remembering. And they have one of the funniest, silliest eating-of-sandwiches scenes ever.

In all, it's a great little movie that's a lot of fun to watch. You might even find for yourself a little joy and meaning...or something.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best chord books on the market, November 16, 2008
This is one of the few chord books worthy of space on my shelves. Most just lay out page after page of the same shapes in all keys, expecting you to either memorize all of that information out of context or refer to it on an ongoing basis. Not very practical and not very useful in the moment of musical expression. This one helps you learn how to structure a chord shape by indicating which notes of the chord are what degrees, and it shows you how each moveable shape is derived. There's also a fairly comprehensive (albeit brief) section on basic music theory and a few useful appendices. Coupled with a bit of fretboard knowledge and maybe a little ear training, this is a great resource that can be instrumental (pardon the pun) in enabling you to construct your own chord voicings, avoiding the tedium of flipping through page after page of a lesser book in confusion.

Eventually, you won't even need a chord book and you can give your copy away to someone who does. But you'll probably want to replace it 20 years later so you have one on hand to show your students when they ask about good chord books...

Speaking of which, it always helps to have a good teacher to help put it all together, regardless of how much reference material you have.

This book is much more useful than just a collection of pictures and fingering diagrams that you have to learn by rote. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cat toy, November 16, 2008
I'm not much of a golfer, so if you're curious to know how far these will fly, I'm afraid this won't help you much. I bought these for my cat to bat around the room. She loves 'em. 'Course, I have to keep fishing them out from under the couch, but hey...she's no Tiger Woods, she's a cat. Good stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great accessory, November 16, 2008
For ten bucks, you get a little peace of mind without sacrificing your LCD display's optics. Installs in seconds and no bubbles like you might get with film-type screen protectors. There's no obstruction of the display. The adhesive is a 2mm strip around the outer edges of the screen. It remains to be seen whether claims of easy removal, reusability and no marring from the adhesive are true, but of course I'm hoping not to find out. You get a more rigid and seemingly durable shield (again, with better optics). Aesthetically, it looks like it belongs on the camera and it cleans up as easily as the original screen does. Considering I spent over half a grand for the camera, the extra $5 or so over the cost of a cheaper screen protector is a non-issue for me. Well worth it, in my opinion.
