Il n est jamais trop tard pour clore
Il y a deux ans, comme le font les gens raisonnables quand ils sont au fond du trou, j'ai consulté une voyante qui m'a fait cette surprenante révélation : Il ne faut pas vous inquiéter, vous êtes une late bloomer, tout va vous arriver plus tard dans la vie ! Selon elle, je n'avais rien raté, je prenais juste mon temps. J'étais en train de grandir, de m'enrichir, de pousser comme une plante en milieu de saison. Et surtout, un jour, c'est sûr, le sens allait se révéler à moi. J'ai retroussé mes manches, j'ai creusé pour déterrer les peurs, les croyances et les injonctions qui m'empêchaient d'avancer, j'ai semé les nouvelles graines qui allaient me faire éclore. Il n'y a ni âge, ni sexe, ni origine, ni taille, ni poids pour être late bloomer... C'est la beauté de cette aventure. Française et Américaine, Catherine Taret est née en avril au beau milieu des années 70.

Les Liaisons Dangereuses
‘I resolved to write a book which would create some stir in the world and continue to do after I had gone from it.’ - Choderlos de Laclos A great sensation at the time of first publication, Les Liaisons Dangereuses reads as much the most 'modern' of eighteenth-century novels. Viewed by some critics as a morality tale and others as a subtle inquiry into libertinism, it brilliantly depicts the foibles of the French aristocracy on the eve of the French Revolution. Renowned for its exploration of lust, revenge and human malice, and still carrying a tremendous power to shock, its adaptations for screen and stage have made its central characters notorious for their sophisticated and ultimately tragic games of seduction and manipulation.
Being in Balance
In this inspirational work, beloved best-selling author Dr. Wayne W. Dyer shows you how to restore balance in your life by offering nine principles for realigning your thoughts so that they correspond to your highest desires.
Imagine a balance scale with one end weighted down to the ground, and the other end – featuring the objects of your desires – sticking up precariously in the air. This scale is a measurement of your thoughts. To restore the same balance that characterizes everything in our universe, you have to take up the weighty thoughts so that they match up to your desires.
The seasons reflect the overall harmony of life. For example, winter passes and the blossoms emerge. This is balanced by a need to have the trees rest, so autumn arrives on time and helps the trees ready themselves for another period of repose. This book is dedicated to the idea that we’re a vital component of this creative process and have within ourselves the wherewithal to create all that we want if we recognize and revise out-of-balance thoughts.

This is a compelling book and the prose is simply beautiful even if you must reread it to understand the true meaning. Every poem makes you think with your mind, feel it with your heart, and enlighten with your whole being. This is poetry at its' best even in translation. Let me share with you some excerpts of what I enjoyed out of this great work of inspiration "Fruit Gathering": Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers but to be fearless in facing them. Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain but for the heart to conquer it. Let me not look for allies in life's battlefield but to my own strength. Let me not crave in anxious fear to be saved but hope for the patience to win my freedom. Grant me that I may not be a coward, feeling your mercy in my success alone; but let me find the grasp of your hand in my failure.
One book. Two readers. A world of mystery, menace, and desire. A young woman picks up a book left behind by a stranger. Inside it are his margin notes, which reveal a reader entranced by the story and by its mysterious author. She responds with notes of her own, leaving the book for the stranger, and so begins an unlikely conversation that plunges them both into the unknown. The book: Ship of Theseus, the final novel by a prolific but enigmatic writer named V.M. Straka, in which a man with no past is shanghaied onto a strange ship with a monstrous crew and launched onto a disorienting and perilous journey. The writer: Straka, the incendiary and secretive subject of one of the world's greatest mysteries, a revolutionary about whom the world knows nothing apart from the words he wrote and the rumors that swirl around him. The readers: Jennifer and Eric, a college senior and a disgraced grad student, both facing crucial decisions about who they are, who they might become, and how much they're willing to trust another person with their passions, hurts, and fears. S., conceived by filmmaker J. J. Abrams and written by award-winning novelist Doug Dorst, is the chronicle of two readers finding each other in the margins of a book and enmeshing themselves in a deadly struggle between forces they don't understand, and it is also Abrams and Dorst's love letter to the written word.
