A Memoir of Marriage and Place

What does it mean to belong to a place, to be truly rooted and grounded in the place you call home? How do you commit to a marriage, to a full partnership with another person, and still maintain your own separate identity? These questions have been central to Susan Wittig Albert's life, and in this beautifully written memoir, she movingly describes how she has experienced place, marriage, and aloneness while creating a home in the Texas Hill Country with her husband and writing partner, Bill Albert. Together, Alone opens in 1985, as Albert leaves a successful, if rootless, career as a university administrator and begins a new life as a freelance writer, wife, and homesteader on a patch of rural land northwest of Austin. She vividly describes the work of creating a home at Meadow Knoll, a place in which she and Bill raised their own food and animals, while working together and separately on writing projects. Once her sense of home and partnership was firmly established, Albert recalls how she had to find its counterbalance—a place where she could be alone and explore those parts of the self that only emerge in solitude. For her, this place was Lebh Shomea, a silent monastic retreat. In writing about her time at Lebh Shomea, Albert reveals the deep satisfaction she finds in belonging to a community of people who have chosen to be apart and experience silence and solitude.

The Story Of The Finn Brothers

Page: 352

A story of breakthroughs, breakdowns, sibling rivalry and respect - and some of the best pop songs this side of Lennon and McCartney. To rattle off the hits of Neil and Tim Finn reads like a checklist of recent pop history. And to think it all began in sleepy rural Te Awamutu - a town whose name had a 'truly sacred ring', as Neil would famously recount. It was a town where Brian Timothy Finn fell in love with the Beatles, an obsession that would also work its way straight into his younger brother Neil's DNA. Success for the brothers was a long time coming: it took several turbulent years in Split Enz - an art-pop band Neil would join in 1977, despite Tim's reservations - before they produced a genuine hit and connected with the mainstream. And it was achieved by one of Neil's songs, 'I Got You', which wasn't the sweetest pill brother Tim had ever tasted. After all, Split Enz was his band, his odyssey, his obsession. When the Enz came undone, their paths split. Neil led world-beaters Crowded House, while Tim immersed himself in a series of bold if not always successful solo projects. Eventually the brothers reunited, leading to 'Woodface', an album considered by many to be Crowded House's finest. Yet that house proved to be a little too crowded, and Tim was fired from the band, before reuniting with Neil again for two hugely rewarding Finn records, though neither came without their fair share of fraternal conflict. Today, the Auckland-based Finns - both OBEs, ARIA Hall of Famers and proud fathers - remain as popular and credible as at any time in their respective careers. Based on interviews, critical analysis, extensive research and more than 30 years of Finns watching and listening, Together Alone is the first biography written about the Finn brothers: Tim, the 'closet drummer' and accidental bandleader, Neil the guarded family man.

BASIC Countries and the Climate Change Conundrum

Since 2009, Brazil, South Africa, India and China - known as the BASIC group of countries - have cooperated in international climate negotiations, reflecting their aspiration to have a larger say in global politics. But there are some who claim that the approach of the bloc has obstructed progress in the talks. Yet this is a superficial view: for real insight into the BASIC group's approach, it is necessary to grasp the development concerns of each country and the geopolitical value they see in cooperation. As four separate states, it is domestic policy priorities that condition how far they can work together, and what they can contribute to climate discussions. This report commissioned by the Nordic Council of Ministers from the Stockholm Environment Institute arrives at a more nuanced understanding of the BASIC cooperation. Such an unders.

Together alone - The Other in a love relationship

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject Psychology - Social Psychology, grade: 1,0, Uppsala University, language: English, abstract: Symbolic Interactionists are also referred to as “cultural romantics.”2 They sympathize with outsiders and underdogs, believe in the contingency of self and society and envision social reality as an ongoing interaction of people, which entails change and transformation.3 On the other hand, Symbolic Interactionism reflects not only a subjective study of human experience, but it also attempts to evolve an objective (social) science which holds man as a product of society and one's self as “only existing in the definite relationships to other selves.”4 This dichotomy appears to be fairly interesting when it comes to social phenomena that are assumingly either mainly subjective or objective. Love tends to be seen as a merely subjective experience of the self. Falling in love with somebody seems to be possible under the most incredible circumstances, not complying to any rules, being mysterious and unpredictable. The “beloved other” prompts feelings and might get positioned on a throne for the most inexplicable (personal) reasons. But who is the “beloved-other” really? Why is he or she privileged to ascend the throne? Are the reasons for loving this particular person barely subjective or might they be rooted in society and hence influenced and induced by an objective reality? Do we really choose our “beloved-other” or is he/she chosen by society?
