Vibrant illustrations and an engaging narrative invite the reader to wonder at nature's seemingly endless variety of forms, from the simple to the complex. Usingthe graphic and symbolic patterns of mandalas, the artist combinescolor, texture, and fluidity to tell the story of each organism and the role it plays in a healthy ecosystem. These elegant artworks have been shaped by the artist's interest in art nouveau and art deco, the works of Charley Harper and Ernst Haeckel, and Victorian ornamental art, Asian art, batik, hot rod flame painting, swirling tie dye, and iconography. By exploring the how, what, and why of garden flora and insects, the book encourages us to look closely at the rich biodiversity in our own backyards.

📒At The Garden S Gate ✍ Judith Dreyer
📝At the Garden s Gate Book Synopsis : At the Garden’s Gate is the story of one woman’s personal journey in creating a meadow, when going “green” wasn’t an everyday word. As the author follows her passion to learn about medicinal and edible plants, a meadow evolves that supports growth—both natural and personal. During this process, she reconnects with her Native American heritage, learning the wisdom of the Medicine Wheel and its teachings. This is a story of partnership with the land, a story of personal discovery and love of nature. Stories—our personal narratives—have meanings on many levels. Using story in the ancient ways of her Native American elders, the author offers insight, wisdom and conveys an impetus to create connections with nature in our daily lives. We are on the cusp of creating a new Earth, one of collaboration, of cooperative effort that recognizes our hearts. One our soul can align with. The garden becomes our centering place. It beckons us through a gate of new understandings and growth. The garden’s gate offers us a doorway into our deeper self. The garden’s path offers a way to remember and to be with self, in stillness, meandering onto unknown pathways that can twist and turn but are filled with such beauty. For that is who we are, co-creators, one with all of creation.

📒All The Wonder That Would Be ✍ Stephen Webb
📝All the Wonder that Would Be Book Synopsis : It has been argued that science fiction (SF) gives a kind of weather forecast – not the telling of a fortune but rather the rough feeling of what the future might be like. The intention in this book is to consider some of these bygone forecasts made by SF and to use this as a prism through which to view current developments in science and technology. In each of the ten main chapters - dealing in turn with antigravity, space travel, aliens, time travel, the nature of reality, invisibility, robots, means of transportation, augmentation of the human body, and, last but not least, mad scientists - common assumptions once made by the SF community about how the future would turn out are compared with our modern understanding of various scientific phenomena and, in some cases, with the industrial scaling of computational and technological breakthroughs. A further intention is to explain how the predictions and expectations of SF were rooted in the scientific orthodoxy of their day, and use this to explore how our scientific understanding of various topics has developed over time, as well as to demonstrate how the ideas popularized in SF subsequently influenced working scientists. Since gaining a BSc in physics from the University of Bristol and a PhD in theoretical physics from the University of Manchester, Stephen Webb has worked in a variety of universities in the UK. He is a regular contributor to the Yearbook of Astronomy series and has published an undergraduate textbook on distance determination in astronomy and cosmology as well as several popular science books.

📒The Monk And The Warrior In The Garden Of Renewal ✍ Richard Brower
📝The Monk and the Warrior in the Garden of Renewal Book Synopsis : This book is a structural analysis of creativity. It proposes that there are five essential, recursive, confluent macrosystems that require interconnectedness and intentional evolution for the fruition of creativity, of mastery, of self-efficacy, and of spiritual self-growth. The five systems are: (1) knowledge, (2) mental operations, (3) rich emotional worlds, (4) a sense of purpose, and (5) connecting with others. This text includes an overview of previous research on creativity, while proposing a new theory based on confluence theory, the belief that creativity is best understood as an intersection and recursive interaction among confluencing systems.
