Great Reads from ALIVE Books THE JOURNEY H O ME By C a rl Jo h n BADGE O N C AMPUS B y Fl oyd W. Gill Badge on Campus contains the recollections of Floyd W. Gill while he was assigned to the Castro Valley Unified School District and the Dublin Unified School District as a School Resource Officer. Topics include cyber bullying, date rape, alcohol and drug use, internet security, sexual identity and gangs. This book offers an awareness of the problems that today's youth face and is be a must read for every student and parent. It is also a teaching tool and reference for teachers, school administrators, and law enforcement. Floyd Gill is also the author of The Misadventures of Nick, ublished by ALIVE Book Publishing, in 2015. It's amazing what can show up to support you when you are in flow with your life. In "The Journey Home," author Carl John discovers that flow and finally recognizes its source. In John's own transition from a pauper to a king; a king to a pawn, and back again, he was confronted with his soul’s journey, finding the larger calling for his life. Maybe our calling is bigger than we think. Maybe we are bigger than we think. When we heed the call and walk in love, then we can truly see. Learning to completely trust the process, we see our divine truth. You were made a perfect you. Love it all and own the truth to finally get off of that circular road. The end of this path is the beginning of the next. On it goes until we get to the heart of our sacred spiral of consciousness. As Carl John's personal journey testifies: We come full circle just to get back hOMe. HAI R MATTERS By Elaine Becke r SOM E ON E TO WATC H OV E R ME By L ucy Grace Ya l dez i a n "Hair Matters" by Elaine Becker is a collection of stories and humorous observations meant to pay homage to the fibrous strands of protein that make up the hair on our heads. It is a personal account of a stylist and educator, who came late to the profession, at age sixty two, and describes the impact hair had in her life, decades past and present. Hair styles are barometers of culture and help define who we are. Those amazing strands are a metaphor and symbol of life’s journey. How you look and feel connects powerfully to your hair. Someone to Watch Over Me is a sweet little gift of a book for connecting with one’s inner spirit, for giving voice to one’s inner being, and for connecting one’s essence with Guardian Protectors or Guides. Simple and inviting enough for children, lucid enough for adults…a precious offering. ~Edward Espe Brown, Zen Priest and author of The Tassajara Bread Book et al
