Growing old is a gift - let\'s relate to and embrace it.
"Even though I\'m not a fan of poetry, I found Jane Seskin\'s poems to be a delight. They hit home."
-Jane Brody, Personal Health columnist, NYTimes
"Candid, funny, and best of all inspiring, the poems in Jane Seskin\'s Older Wiser Shorter throw open a window on aging. Suddenly a breeze of resilience sails through. I learned from Seskin\'s poems: they become like mentors for the strange adventure of late-life living. Kindness infuses them."
-Molly Peacock, author of The Analyst
Jane Seskin writes with keen insight and eyes open to the inadvertent miracles in our everyday."
-Arthur Sze, Author of Compass Rose

A mechanic milks a cow, a recluse walks outside for the first time in three weeks, two teenagers watch tennis on mute, a grown man drinks a juice box in his underwear ― all of these moments strike the artful balance between intellectual acuity and lighthearted absurdity, establishing Toddy Smith and Darren Nuzzo as the new literary voices to listen to, laugh with and follow.
Before the inspired nonsense of Monty Python, David Letterman and the Far Side, there were Droodles. With a few squiggles in a simple square, these clever drawings created absurd scenes like SHIP ARRIVING TOO LATE TO SAVE A DROWNING WITCH (used by Frank Zappa as an album cover), EYEGLASSES FOR A POTATO and CLAM WITH BUCK TEETH And they were all the creation of one brilliant and unpredictable man: Roger Price.
At the height of their popularity in the mid-1950s, fans enjoyed the Droodles TV show, a Droodles daily newspaper column, Droodles magazine features, Droodles cocktail napkins, even Droodles in ads for Lucky Strike cigarettes. Like hula hoops, drive-in movies and UFOs, Droodles were one of the biggest fads of the 1950s.
An Artoir by John Sacret Young
Read About then Own the Art Collection!
In Pieces of Glass, award-winning Hollywood screenwriter John Sacret Young mixes the "art" side of his life with a personal memoir to create a unique Artoir spotlighting and exploring the deep, moving, and explosive effect art has had on him, his work, and his soul. From Mark Rothko, John Marin, and Richard Diebenkorn to Johannes Vermeer, Norman Rockwell and Charles Burchfield, Young comes to realize that paintings, drawings, sketches, and even chalk on an old garage wall have helped shape him into the best of what he is today.
In the 1960s, Price Stern Sloan published what was probably the first coloring book for adults as well as kids. Designs to Color was created by Betty Schaffner who believed that people of all ages had an innate imagination and artistic talent that conventional coloring books failed to spark and nurture. Her varied line drawings, sometimes abstract and sometimes recognizable - flowers, faces, animals - will lead any "color-er" into winding paths and jungles of form and into their own worlds of imagination.
