If living is an art, sharing your life with someone is the utmost expression of this art. Love may seem serendipitous but the truth is that it is the unique, voluntary and responsible act of creation of two human beings brought together by the magnificence of this energy. This book presents Sinay's lucid and sensitive exploration of the most subtle and most profound aspects of love. Diving into everyday living, Sinay proposes concrete tasks that lead to the consolidation of the couple, to the art of living in a relationship.
After the battle at Southstades, normal life has resumed in the north. Tiel is training as a healer, and Caedun resumes the life of a bard, writing songs, visiting taverns, and trying to persuade Merrell to marry him.

A classic of sport, and the first of George Plimpton's remarkable forays into "participatory" journalism, OUT OF MY LEAGUE chronicles with wit, charm, and grace what happens when a self-professed amateur wonders how he would fare on a baseball mound in a major league game. On an ordinary afternoon in the third-base-line seats of Yankee Stadium, Plimpton hits on what seems an inspired idea--to get on the mound and pitch a few innings to the All Stars of the American and National Leagues. What begins as a fun-filled stunt, for the "average man" to pitch in the Big Leagues, comes to a nearly humiliating end. This honest and hilarious tale features Mickey Mantle, Billy Martin, Willie Mays, Ernie Banks, Whitey Ford, Ralph Houk, Richie Ashburn, and other baseball greats. What happens when America's favorite sports dilettante tries his arm against the likes of hall-of-fame baseball players recalls every young boy's forgotten dream of heroics on a baseball diamond; and for that fact alone, OUT OF MY LEAGUE remains one of George Plimpton's most beloved works.
