FINDING THE UNEXPECTED: Searching Utian Roots in Lithuania: Wulf H Utian
Mindful mending in a scientized world: With everything digitized also being scientized, the defining is a living quest. Indeed science is an alphabet of possibilities. Yes, science is safe, except when it isn´t, yet, as with Pi, the dividend is infinite. A poetry of mindful mending may fit this sending, but how snakes sidewind and sandfish swim, how early legged animals first crawled up, like a poet to his own shore, are the subtext to far beyond and more. Ecology needs new buzz words, fiercely motivating, to turn public attention toward mindful mending. Earth is our only viable hive. Swarming into action is essential. Here, in sparse rhythmic aphoristic poetry, Elihu Blotnick searches. Indeed, science is its own subject, a tool, a method, an outcome, and a guide. Those who toy with it are surprised when they draw laughs. Those who reject it do so to their peril. They limit themselves. Yet, even those who worship at its gates never arrive in its heaven. The universe is ultimately unknowable. We are cosmic miniatures and always will be. Of course, we can make fiction of the future but the universe itself is our chief critic and will have the last word, regardless. This is the author´s ultimate message, delivered in poetry that explores science in the context of language and discovery. Write real and see what happens, Elihu thought. But inspiration got the better of him: the poems are profound and prophetic. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Elihu Blotnick.

Soon after his birthmother contacted him for the first time at the age of thirty-nine, adoptee Gary L. Stewart decided to search for his biological father. His quest would lead him to a horrifying truth and force him to reconsider everything he thought he knew about himself and his world. Written with award-winning author and journalist Susan Mustafa, The Most Dangerous Animal of All tells the story of Stewart’s decade-long hunt. While combing through government records and news reports and tracking down relatives and friends, Stewart turns up a host of clues—including forensic evidence—that conclusively identify his father as the Zodiac Killer, one of the most notorious and elusive serial murderers in history. For decades, the Zodiac Killer has captivated America’s imagination. His ability to evade capture while taunting authorities made him infamous. The vicious specificity of his crimes terrified Californians before the Manson murders and after, and shocked a culture enamored with the ideals of the dawning Age of Aquarius. To this day, his ciphers have baffled detectives and amateur sleuths, and his identity remains one of the twentieth century’s great unsolved mysteries. The Most Dangerous Animal of All reveals the name of the Zodiac for the very first time. Mustafa and Stewart construct a chilling psychological profile of Stewart’s father: as a boy with disturbing fixations, a frustrated intellectual with pretensions to high culture, and an inappropriate suitor and then jilted lover unable to process his rage. At last, all the questions that have surrounded the case for almost fifty years are answered in this riveting narrative. The result is a singular work of true crime at its finest—a compelling, unbelievable true story told with the pacing of a page-turning novel—as well as a sensational and powerful memoir. 1.

New York Times best-selling author Rachel Held Evans embarks on a quest to find out what it really means to be part of the Church. Like millions of her millennial peers, Rachel Held Evans didn´t want to go to church anymore. The hypocrisy, the politics, the gargantuan building budgets, the scandals - Church culture seemed so far removed from Jesus. Yet despite her cynicism and misgivings, something kept drawing her back. And so she set out on a journey to understand the Church and to find her place in it. Centered around seven sacraments, Evans´ quest takes listeners through a liturgical year with stories about baptism, communion, confirmation, confession, marriage, vocation, and death that are funny, heartbreaking, and sharply honest. A memoir about making do and taking risks, about the messiness of community and the power of grace, Searching for Sunday is about overcoming cynicism to find hope and, somewhere in between, Church. 1.
