Be accountable. Be responsible. Be on time. Or better yet, get there at ten 'til. You'll be all the wiser-and all the more content!
This funny, insightful, life-affirming collection uses everyday moments-from the tobacco fields of South Carolina to red-carpet premieres in Hollywood-to demonstrate the value of showing up early, holding yourself accountable, welcoming change, nourishing others, and being fully present and engaged with life.
A native South Carolinian, R. Dean Johnson delivers homegrown wisdom that's unassuming, gracious, and utterly charming. His uplifting, down-home life lessons include: Stop hiding behind answering machines, caller ID, and front-door peepholes: be there, and welcome the intrusion. 'Honesty is a good policy. Sometimes it's just not the best one. 'There's nothing like a good casserole to say, 'In time, you'll heal. But in the meantime, this will make you feel somewhat better.'"
'As a fellow Husky-wearing southerner, I really relate to Dean's anecdotes. This book is filled with lessons to never forget."-"Ryan Seacrest," Host of "American Idol"
'Life. Be There at Ten 'Til" is as refreshing as a glass of cold buttermilk sipped on the screened porch."-"Celia Rivenbark," Author of "Bless Your Heart, Tramp" and "We're Just Like You, Only Prettier"
a "Hiddena (TM) older illegal drug users are a seldom researched group; most research on illegal drug users instead focusses on the young or the institutionalised. To counter this trend, this book reports on a study of current 'hidden' users of illegal drugs aged 40 and over. These are individuals who have sustained illegal drug use over the long term, largely away from the gaze of the authorities, whilst living otherwise 'conventional' lives, holding down jobs, raising families and so on. Thus they have much to tell us about how illegal substances can be integrated into life over the long term, how that integration intersects with other aspects of one's existence, and how illegal drug use is ultimately shaped by changes in personal circumstances and wider social contexts. Utilising insights from the 'life course perspective', the development of the participants' use over their lives is analysed and placed in social context. The book also details the nature of their current drug use. Thus the book illustrates the place of illegal drugs in the lives of the participants, and how this came to be over the decades as they also juggled work, family and the everyday minutiae of life with their use. The result is a unique look at the illegal drug use of an often ignored group of older drug users, which charts the changing role that illegal drugs have played - and continue to play - in their lives.
In this book, the author explores how contexts determine the meaning of embedded scripture texts in the Gospel of Mark. Many historical critics base their readings on a context that is external to Mark's story world, be it a reconstructed socio-religious setting of the evangelist, a Jewish exegetical tradition or some earlier stage in the development of the gospel.
