Hi Friends!

Amy Shirley and I have just published All is Calm, a reader from Thanksgiving to Christmas. Thirty-five short meditations, like I write for the bulletin at Perimeter. Love to have you consider picking up a copy as a Thanksgiving gift. Check it out! BUT, if you get it, I want to challenge you to read just one per day.

Kindle for less then $3 and paperback for less then $10. Could make a gift for a friend or loved one. Or enjoy it yourself.

Go to www.amazon.com and type in: All is Calm Schlichting to find it. Also available at Perimeter Bookstore 11/11/12

Roger Conlon writes:-

I was at Scotus from 1963 to 1975 and had two two brothers there as well Andrew, still with me, and Tommy (who I lost to cancer in 2008).
I have written an autobiographical novel in which there are several references to the school - some very funny and the inevitable jokes about the belt will no doubt resonate in the minds of all ex-pupils.
The novel then goes on to my time as a student at Aberdeen University and my political activities as a Labour Party activist and then SNP YES FOR SCOTLAND campaigner.
There are some very funny stories about working in a pizza restaurant and the riot that followed one night real time I have to say.
Politics aside., my time as a diehard Hibee are mentioned and yes I mentioned that word the Scottish Cup.
As I lost Tommy and a sister Jane to cancer there are some sad bereavement tales we can all identify with, we have all been there.
My history teacher Mr Dick would be fascinated to read the book. Do not know where he is just now.
So I will sign off there is a website I am using to promote the book but do not know how to get this on the website. - thepriceofsilence.co.uk
