Usually when an author receives a foreign edition of a book, there is some clue as to what language you're looking at. If you remember the words from high school French class, okay, that one's easy. When it is Turkish or Hungarian you can figure it out by finding...in the small print...the name of the city where it was published. Ankara or Budapest is pretty definitive.

But this one was a mystery to me. THere was nothing recognizable in the small print. So I sent a jpeg of it to my friend Alan, who was once a good Bar Mitzvah boy, and have just heard back from him: yes, it is Hebrew. "Do you want my sister in Israel to translate it?" he asks. But no, I won't bother Alan's sister. if it says "Gooney Bird Greene" in English...as it does...then it will be some similiarly silly name in Hebrew. And isn't it fun to think of kids in Israel getting a laugh out of this character?!

I have just finished writing a third book about Gooney Bird and it is at Houghton Mifflin now, awaiting illustrations and then publication...probably spring 2007. But I can give you a title now - GOONEY THE FABULOUS - and the first few paragraphs, which will provide a hint of content that creates the title:


“And so,” Mrs. Pidgeon said, reading the final page of the book she was holding, “because the ant had worked very hard, he and his friends had food all winter. But the grasshopper had none, and found itself dying of hunger.”
“Oh, no!” Keiko wailed. “I hate stories where people die!”
Malcolm, who had been rolling paper into balls while he listened to the story, tossed a little paper pellet at Keiko. “It’s not people,” he pointed out. “It’s a dumb grasshopper! It’s only a grasshopper! Just a grasshopper!”
“Nobody cares if a grasshopper dies!” Tyrone said.
“I do,” Keiko murmured sadly. She folded her arms on her desk and then laid her head down on her arms.

****

My good friend Middy Thomas is the one who illustrates the Gooney Bird books. Here's a picture of Middy painting, at my farm in Maine, a couple of Octobers ago.

Instead of trying moncler outlet so hard to get out of the shadow,Scarpe running da donna the dark, which I think actually reinforces the shadow and its reality, just do your practices.adidas shoes sale See, if somebody says, “I’m having these terrible thoughts,Cheap Ugg Outlet On Sale and I don’t know why, will you help me understand why?”new balance sale I’d tell them that I’d rather sit with them and a&f clothing help them to follow their breath.christian louboutin pas cher The breath has no content to it at all.Giacca da uomo K-way It’s just breath.scarpe nike scontate It’s better to strengthen chaussures Adidas pour hommes their centering,des ugg pas cher the quieting, the presence, than to keep strengthening the problem,Nike shoes sale which keeps being reinforced when you work on it directly.nike pas cher femme It’s a very delicate situation. I don’t want to undercut times when it’s really appropriate to work on thoughts as content, but for the most part,pandora canada outlet the focusing on the content of thoughts is, to me, a last strategy.

It is a much better new balance femme 574 strategy to focus on ed hardy france the mechanics of thought,UGG Women's Boots rather than the content of thought. Do you hear that distinction?

Now I can go canada goose italia to a therapist, and they can say nike free run saldi "Let's talk about your childhood and where did it all come from…" That’s dealing with the content of the thoughts.nike vapormax 2017 Or, instead, I could choose to just see them as thoughts, not focusing on the content so much, looking for answers.Nike Air Jordan pas cher They’re just thoughts! Put them in the category of thoughts, not what they’re about, they’re just thoughts,Giacche da donna Moncler and it’s my major game louboutin pas cher basket in meditation to extricate awareness from pandora rings sale identification with thought or with clinging to it.Nike Free In order to do that you go into your meditation practice, adidas zx 750 which in some cases might be taking one thought, like following the breath.

What will then come up is,Piumini moncler donna “But what am I gonna do about this relationship?” Thought appears,nike air max 2017 uomo and I hear the teacher say, cheap nike air force 1 “Return to your breath.” Go back to breathing in,chaussures de basket-ball Nike breathing out Scarpe Nike Roshe one, then another one comes and says,UGG Kids on Sale “God my life is a mess!” Now at that point, you can leave, call a therapist,ugg homme pas cher and say, "Let’s deal with why my life is a mess,"new balance 574 femme or you say,new balance 996 femme "Ok, go back to the breath.nike free 5.0 womens Sure your life is a mess.adidas yeezy low Go back to the breath."

It’s just rising-falling,Nike Sandals rising-falling,Scarpe Nike Air Max 90 and now, in other words,nike free 5.0 uomo you can use the meditative practice to extricate moncler uomo outlet online yourself from identification with thoughts,nike air jordan for sale whatever they are, shadowy or not.Running Shoes de Nike There are some louboutin pas cher homme thoughts that you won’t pandora jewelry stock get rid of that way,Gilet da uomo Moncler because they’re sort of in adidas boost shoes a nest or web of stuff.Nike Air Jordan pas cher Then, you’ll approach sandale plate steve madden them in terms of content,ugg bottes 2017 but my strategy is to go for the mechanics first,UGG Womens Gloves and then go to the content later on,moncler uomo 2017 when it’s really ripe for the picking.

In fact, the development of society is by the Air Jordan Pas Cher unremitting efforts christian louboutin pas cher of all sectors to jointly promote. The role of different angles, the force will have the size of the points.

Barcelona also suffered the same three-ball defeat.
In the first 10 minutes, BarcelonaShop All Products completed four shots. After that, the pace of the game was mastered by Rome. From the 4th minute Sergio Robeto took the goal and was confiscated Other Teamsby Allison. In 90 minutes, Suarez restricted the left flank and blocked it, and the middle 86 minutes. Barcelona only Messi completed 5 shots, one dead, noPremier League other teammates can help, showing the passive chaos scene.
Messi made two shots five times and did not La Ligabreak. Messi's personal ability made all opponents jealous, and in the first round Rome repeatedly attacked with four or five people, making the little fleas Ligue 1uncomfortable. The second round of Barcelona possession of the ball possession of less than all the advantages, Messi 61 touched the ball throughout the field, passingGermany Teams Jerseys only 35 times, pass success rate of 74.3%, below average.

ESPN's Dan Le Betard conducted a stinging interview with MLB commissioner Rob Manfred on Wednesday,
grilling los angeles angels of anaheim jersers the commissioner on the details of the Miami Marlins sale to a group led by Derek Jeter. The conversation was contentious from the start, with Le Betard saying, "Baseball has been really bad to South Florida for many years, and I don't believe baseball deserves a single customer in South Florida," just moments before introducing the commissioner. It only got more heated from there. Le Betard bluntly asked whether or not Manfred knew of Jeter's plan to cleveland indians jersers slash the Marlins' payroll. Manfred denied having knowledge of any of Jeter's specific plans for the group while going through the approval process. "We are starting with a chicago white sox jersers lie, Rob," washington nationals jersers Le Batard said. "That's where we're starting." Manfred continued to insist that decisions such as the miami marlins jersers ones Jeter has made to cut the Marlins' budget were made at a local level, independent of his purview as commissioner. "We did not have player-specific plans from the Miami Marlins or any other team that we approve in the ownership process." On Thursday, Le Batard said during his show that he had seen the "Project Wolverine" boston red sox jersers proposal Jeter's group washington nationals jersers put together for MLB and knew the commissioner was not being truthful. This was echoed by Barry Jackson at the Miami Herald cincinnati reds jersers who reported that Jeter's plan was vetted and approved by MLB, and that that plan included slashing the team's budget from $115 million to $85 million. "A source directly involved in the Marlins sales process, after hearing the Le Batard interview, said, via text: 'Commissioner detroit tigers jersers said was not aware of [Jeter] plan to slash payroll. Absolutely not true. They request and receive the operating plan from all bidders. "'Project Wolverine [the name for Jeter's plan] called on his group to reduce payroll to $85 million. This was vetted and approved by MLB prior to approval by MLB. Every [Jeter] investor and non investor has the Wolverine financial plan of slashing payroll to $85 million.
