An external manifestation of an internal translation of wisdom, madness, order, chaos, beauty, or destruction; words are the creative force of all that is seen and unseen. At the bidding of a well-formed word, matter will arise and energy burst forth, mountains will move and storms will cease, food won't spoil, the sick will be made well, hearts will beat, and spirits renew. So, choose your words carefully, for the spirit from which they are derived is mighty.
Reflections in the Sun is a deeply personal collection of poetry written by Jason A. Grant over a period of four years. The short eight chapters represent the author's journey through love and loss, and the struggle to find a safe space to love others, as well as himself.

Reflections: The Perfect Time This book is a compilation of devotionals. It is the first book of a series, examining certain spiritual topics of interest to the authors. Some of the authors kept their legal names, and some elected to use fictitious names. Even though the topics of meditation are written, based on lay persons' level of comprehension of God's word, those topics are, nevertheless, quite profound in their significance, as they appeal to, and stimulate the interest of serious readers of God's word, to reflect on the times in which they now live; challenging times, as they relate to matters of the spirit. It is the sincere wishes and prayers of the authors of this book that each devotional, read in a prayerful spirit, will raise the consciousness of the reader, concerning these times of interesting changes . May they be blessed with what matters most, as they move forward in their spiritual journey. May they be filled with compassionate, giving hearts, that are willing to put others first; to elevate rather than degrade; to give the respect that others deserve, instead of demanding it for themselves at every cost; it takes a spirit of humility to accept this. A life of victory is promised to those who keep their hands in God's hand, as they grow daily in His word. May the blood of Jesus covers all, and keep them sheltered under that covenant till He comes again.

Aspects of Liszt's life and work and the musical and cultural life of nineteenth-century Europe that the author was unable to explore in his three-volume biography of the composer and pianist. Topics include Liszt's contributions to the Lied, the lifelong impact of his encounter with Beethoven, his influence on students who became famous in their own right, his accomplishments in transcribing and editing the works of other composers, and his innovative piano technique. One chapter is devoted to the Sonata in B Minor, perhaps Liszt's single most celebrated composition. Walker draws heavily on Liszt's astonishingly large personal correspondence with other composers, critics, pianists, and prominent public figures.
