Philosophical reflections on journeys and crossings, homes and habitats, have appeared in all major East Asian and Western philosophies. Landscape and travelling first emerged as a key issue in ancient Chinese philosophy, quickly becoming a core concern of Daoism and Confucianism. Yet despite the eminence of such reflections, Landscape and Travelling East and West: A Philosophical Journey is the first academic study to explore these philosophical themes in detail.
Following the reprint of Recollections by Marianne North, a leading lady traveller in the Victorian era, Edition Synapse has initiated a series of facsimile collections of travel writing by Victorian women on Asia in the nineteenth century. Victorian Lady Travellers in Asia is the first in a series of four collections of five volumes each by British lady travellers who came to Japan and China in the period of early modernization. These writings-together with many plates and photographs (which are reproduced here)-represent a variety of Western women's views on Asian culture within a fascinating period of westernization.
Allen Ginsberg was a serious shutterbug who delighted in taking candid snapshots of friends and fellow writers, but up until now readers have had little chance to consider the "poetic" world of his photographs. Here in the form of twenty detachable postcards are photographs taken over the years on the poet's many travels and trips abroad. Pictures include: Kerouac, Ginsberg, and Corso in Mexico; Burroughs and Bowles in Tangier; Snyder in Japan; Whalen and Creeley in Vancouver; Ginsberg in India and Prague, and Philip Glass in Turkey. Allen Ginsberg was born in 1926 in Newark, New Jersey. In 1956 City Lights published his signal poem "Howl," one of the most widely read poems of the era. He died in 1997.

A special Reiki journey in the dark days after 9/11/01. After two days of purification in torrential rain, my sleep was disturbed by the most active mental activity that i had ever experienced and it came in waves and bits and pieces and was difficult to understand but it was clear that i needed to write it all down and i did.
Samuel Carvelus never came home from the logging mill that evening. The rushing river claimed him as its own. His wife Megan and nine year old daughter Shiloh received word there was an accident; Samuel was killed saving the life of Jacob Turner, an eighteen year old boy just starting out in the logging business. No man could have done what Samuel did in saving this young life. He filled his lungs with air, dived into the rushing river, and struggled to dodge the floating timbers. Beneath the timbers he searched savagely for Jacob's body. Numbed by the cold raging river, the fierceness of the current thrust his body forward; his lungs began to crave for air, but dare not surface. He spotted the boy's body dangling from a jagged rock like a rag doll. He aligned himself and allowed the river to force his body toward the boy just as Jacob's shirt tore loose from the rock, Samuel grabbed hold of his arm; he scanned the surface for a break from the rushing logs. Daylight appeared between the rock and the banks. He pushed upward to the surface hanging tight to Jacob's limp body. He shoved the boy up on the embankment, four men hoisted the boy to safety, but it was too late for Samuel, the swiftness of the logs slammed into his back crushing his body while the raging current sucked him under.
