He has his own short story collection, “Humans Need Not Apply,” and his short stories are included in several anthologies. Audio versions of some of his books will be available this year.

FINDING HUMOR IN GRIEF
By: Dr. Ruth L. Baskerville

Overview

At the time of my husband’s untimely death, we had been married forty-five years, which meant I had not just lost my one true love, but I was also lost! We were each other’s best friends, and whatever one of us did was filtered through the lens of what we knew about the other’s desires.
I thought it impossible to survive without him because there were too many tasks, decisions, plans that he alone managed. As I shared with close friends my struggle to accomplish left-brain tasks previously foreign to me, they laughed heartily.

I saw that grief had a funny side. Each segment of my book tells a different aspect of my journey to successfully function without Waverly. I reveal my intimate thoughts and actions in a stream-of-conscience writing style, rather than to tell my story in chronological order. Most experiences are highly amusing, but for times when I found no humor, I created a chapter called “Mama Said There’d Be Days Like This.” Writing this book was cathartic for me, but I also wanted to connect with readers who are mourning like I am. Humor is excellent medicine for the ailing mind, body and soul.

I apologized to a dear friend for naively thinking that grieving over the loss of her husband was something that diminished in time. I foolishly likened her grief to a wound that looked awfully painful at first, but got better each day until only a tiny scar remained. I now know that these distinct scars will never disappear, and that coping with grief is the only way to find a measure of happiness again. It’s called a “new normal.”

I’ve learned that grief is like a roller coaster, where the ride never ends, and the goal is to find the courage to let go your grip of the safety bar and raise your arms high in the air, as you “free fall” with confidence that you’ll land safely, in your right mind.

PDCCC Movie Night – Captain Philips

Captain Philips

Two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks teams with Oscar-nominated director Paul Greengrass and screenwriter Billy Ray to tell the true story of Richard Phillips, a U.S. cargo-ship captain who surrendered himself to Somali pirates so that his crew would be freed. The MV Maersk Alabama was en route to Mombasa, Kenya, when it was surrounded and boarded by a gang of hardened bandits led by the determined Muse (Barkhad Abdi). As the crew of the Maersk Alabama rushed into a fortified “secure room” created for just such an incident, Phillips and Muse found themselves in a tense standoff that threatened to erupt into violence at any moment. Catherine Keener and Michael Chernus co-star. Author: Jason Buchanan. 133 min. 2013. PG–13 (inappropriate for 13 and younger).

Great SouthEast ShakeOut (multi-state earthquake drill)

Get Ready to ShakeOut!
 
Virginians can join in multi-state earthquake drill October 17, 2013
 
The second annual Great SouthEast ShakeOut multi-state earthquake drill is Thursday, Oct. 17, at 10:17 a.m. By signing up for the ShakeOut, Virginians can learn about earthquake safety and also join in the largest simultaneous earthquake drill ever held.
Wherever you are – home, school, work or play – you can participate in the ShakeOut and learn how to DROP, COVER AND HOLD ON, which is the safe response to an earthquake.

  • DROP to the ground (before the earthquake drops you)
  • Take COVER by getting under a sturdy desk or table, and
  • HOLD ON to it until the shaking stops

Earthquakes happen without warning, and the shaking may be so severe that you cannot run or crawl. So DROP, COVER AND HOLD ON IMMEDIATELY. If there isn’t a table or desk near you, drop to the ground in an inside corner of the building, and cover your head and neck with your hands and arms. Do not try to run to another room to get under a table.
 
Also, during an earthquake, don’t run outside. Trying to run is dangerous because the ground is moving and you can easily fall or be injured by falling bricks, glass and other building materials. In the U.S., you are much safer to stay inside and get under a table.
 
Last year nearly one million Virginians took part in the first Great SouthEast ShakeOut. Learn more and sign up for the Oct. 17 ShakeOut at www.ReadyVirginia.gov or www.shakeout.org/southeast

The Waiting Room

Review by STEPHEN HOLDEN Published: September 25, 2012
“The crowded emergency room of Highland Hospital in Oakland, Calif., is the setting of Peter Nicks’s wrenching documentary The Waiting Room. Shot in 2010 over five months, the film, which has no narrator, titles, statistical analysis or overt editorializing, observes a composite day there during which nearly 250 patients — most of them uninsured — pour in.” Not Rated; 81 minutes; 2012

Depression is as real and as serious a disease as diabetes or heart disease. It results from chemical changes in the brain. Like many illnesses, it tends to run in families. No matter how bad you fell now, treatment can help you find happiness and feel like yourself again. The first steps are recognizing the disease and accepting the fact that you may need professional help. Join us on October 10 for a depression screening and the opportunity to discuss the results with a mental health professional.
