The Free Spirit Pony Diaries....... ......or perhaps this should be titled 'The journal of a slightly 'odd' horsewoman, her infinitely patient 'other half', 13 independent ponies (including the 'just a bit too big to be ponies' ones), 3 hilarious pigs and 5 very energetic Jack Russells'. When I first moved to East Sussex, UK over a decade ago, with 7 ponies in tow to 'start a riding school', little did I know that the ponies had other ideas..... 12 years later and we are on a very different path - a far better and more rewarding one but one which has challenges all of it's own! Inside the covers of this book you'll find our journey between November 2011 and December 2014, exactly as it happened and as it was recorded - the ups and downs; the tears and the laughter, but most of all, you'll find the story of how our horses reminded me of what it really means to love horses.

While much has been written about the sociological significance of the blues, this is a unique inquiry into the blues and the mind, a study of the blues as thought. Here, the subconscious power of the blues is examined from a poetic and psychological perspective, illuminating the blues' deepest creative sources and exploring its far-reaching influence and appeal.Like Surrealist poetry in particular, blues communicate through highly charged symbols of aggression and desire-eros, crime,magic, night, and drugs, among others. A close analysis of classic blues lyrics, along with a wealth of source material from Freud and James Frazer, to Breton and Marcuse, conveys the blues' major poetic function of spiritual revolt against repression.First published in 1975, Blues and the Poetic Spirit is a blues literature classic. This long-awaited new edition assesses developments in the blues since that time and outlines the social and political forces that continue to shape its evolution.
Marcella sat on the edge of her bed and listened to the slow tap-tap-tap as she watched the blood from her nose and mouth mix with the tears and descend down her face. She analyzed the colors as the marbling occurred before stretching down to the new linoleum floor. She sat without emotion, as if no longer able to feel pain. Only her body would react to the blunt assault it had just received. Then she said, 'Oh God, what am I suppose to do now?' But Marcella was determined that, if she was going to die, it would not be because she stayed with a crazy man; it would be because she was trying to get out. InMarcella: Strength, Courage, Spirit, you will journey with one woman as she experiences marital abuse, and you will see how easy it is for those in abusive relationships to feel trapped, as if there is no escape. This author's story will walk you through a life full of challenges that will grip your stomach and increase your heart rate.
