There are so many people to thank for putting up with my obsession to write my poems. First and foremost is my husband who has, literally, the patience of a saint and has supported my efforts to a point of waking up in the middle of the night just to listen to one of my new poems, and his constant encouragement to write this book. I also want to thank my family, friends, and all those who follow my website and leave me inspiring comments, which enable me to continue. Without everyone’s love and support, this wouldn’t have come to fruition. Thank you for purchasing my very first poem book, and I hope you enjoy. Namaste, Janet Ballone

By DAVID HELLER and JARED HELLER
WHEN DARKNESS REIGNED AND LIGHT WAS BARELY VISIBLE is a thoughtful reflection on the Second World War, through the lens of the son and grandson of a WWII survivor. The grandfather, Marcus Heller, was nineteen, Jewish and living in Poland when the war ignited in 1939. He lost his entire family during the war, but found his way to Russia and the Russian army and was at the Battle of Stalingrad, among others. His journey inspired this book of reflections by his immediatedescendants. Following an overview of how vast and horrendous atrocities were in World War II, and the incomparable scope of the carnage, this compendium is divided into both the psychological and spiritual implications of the war. While the book focuses more substantially on the war in Europe, it does include many references to the Pacific theatre and the global nature of the war. Its main purpose, and the intention of the authors, is to ask what can be learned -- about human nature and the human condition, and about our relationship to the idea of God and moral and ethical principles. Here are a few of the hundreds of psychological and spiritual reflections on the war, with an eye toward arousing in readers their own feelings and views: “Children will always wonder why people can be cruel, and we are compelled to tell them there is no single answer.” “People can endure horrible challenges and still be resilient. They can not only endure these challenges, but it is possible to prevail over them.” “Good and evil are not based in a particular religion, culture or country. They wear the uniforms that suit them, sometimes changing over time. And sometimes they are camouflaged in disguises. It may be easy to spot evil in an SS uniform, but not as simple a task when evil is cloaked in religious cloth or civilian clothes or any uniform worn falsely as a benevolent impersonation.”

Q: What’s this novel with the long table of contents about anyway? A: It’s about Umm Safi. It’s about epistolary ecstasy. It’s about broken hearts whichever way you look. It’s about Murad saying, “Let’s not waste it.” It’s about the power of a theatrical performance. It’s about olives. It’s about getting a little taste. It’s about el derecho de vivir en paz. It’s about sumud. It’s about satyagraha. It’s about postcards in the era before Tweets. It’s about Walt Whitman saying, “Journeyers over consecutive seasons, over the years, the curious years each emerging from that which preceded it.” It’s about life under military occupation. It’s about life under neurotic preoccupation. It’s about how grades aren’t everything. It’s about letting go, letting go, and letting go. It’s about a certain Spanish word.

Founders is about the development of a new College of Medicine and Teaching Hospital, located 90 miles from the parent University campus. The goal was to examine the role of senior leaders, department chairs, division chiefs, senior faculty and administrators in this venture with a focus on their vision and goals and, upon reflection, their achievements. The book discusses the role of the “founders” in assessing leadership (deans, chairs, chiefs), recruitment of faculty (criteria, charge, interaction), and funding (no state funding and very limited university funds). These are issues being faced by other institutions (existing, new, expanding). Decisions made in each of these areas, proactive or by default, can have significant impact on the overall teaching, patient care, and research missions. It was interesting that different individuals viewed the same events with totally different viewpoints of what really happened; underscoring the importance of communication to encourage a common core of intent and outcome.

Christmas Day 2018 became a moment where the deeply cemented contempt held by the Islamic Soldiers of God toward Western nonbelievers was demonstrated through acts of destructive barbarity on America’s homeland that were of a style and dimension that removed all incentives for the West to not retaliate in kind. President Constance Ridley was ill prepared for the attacks of Christmas Day, but it would be her decisions of delegating the responsibility of fixing the Islamic problem exclusively to the military and removing herself from the decision-making loop that defined the future of America, her allies, and the fate of Islam.

After searching for years for a mountain cabin site in the west, the author purchased 13 acres out of an old horse and cattle ranch dating back to 1881, just outside of what is now Cloudcroft, New Mexico. Gradually he became interested in the history of his land and uncovered a rich trove of Mescalero Apache, Spanish, Mexican and American cultures coming together, warring and ultimately co-existing in this little corner of the country. These disjointed notes are the results of his research and insight. Coronado, Kit Carson, Santana, Billy the Kid, the Bullards and Mosers, The Eddy Brothers, J. Robert Oppenheimer and, in turn, the Weinbergers all appear on or within a few miles of this special place. This is their story.

In the spring of 1621, Plymouth Colony sent STEPHEN HOPKINS to make the first visit to Wampanoag sachem Massasoit to present a red horseman’s coat as a gift and sign of friendship. For most ordinary Englishmen, venturing off into the depths of unexplored America would have been a once in a lifetime adventure: but not for Stephen. By the time he turned forty, he had already survived a hurricane, been shipwrecked in the Bermuda Triangle, been written into a Shakespearean play, witnessed the famine and abandonment of Jamestown Colony, and participated in the marriage of Pocahontas. He was once even sentenced to death! He got himself and his family onto the Pilgrims’ Mayflower, and helped found Plymouth Colony. He signed the Mayflower Compact, lodged the famous Squanto in his house, participated in the legendary Thanksgiving, and helped guide and govern the early colonists.

Yet Stephen was just an ordinary man, with a wife, three sons, seven daughters, a small house, some farmland for his corn, and cows named Motley, Sympkins, Curled, and Red. These are the extraordinary adventures of an ordinary man.
