Mary Kay DeGenova was in a neurologist's waiting room when she saw a mother cradling a newborn in her arms. The mother was wiping away tears as she looked around at the other kids-some of whom were running around while others were in wheelchairs with feeding tubes. The look on the new mom's face brought back all the emotions DeGenova felt when she first began her own journey as a parent of a child with developmental disabilities. In this guide for new parents, DeGenova shares the challenges she's overcome and what other parents of a child with developmental disabilities can expect on their own respective journeys. She provides comfort to other parents with a child with developmental disabilities by letting them know they are not alone, as well as highlighting the overwhelming beauty and joy that is inevitable on this parenting path. More importantly, she shares useful advice and strategies to help new parents navigate the complicated world of raising a child with a developmental disability.

We all dream; we all share these strange experiences that infuse our nights. But we only know of those nightly adventures when we decide to represent them. In the long history of coming to terms with dreams there seem to be two different ways of delineating our forays into the world of the unconscious: One is the attempt of interpreting, of unveiling the hidden meaning of dreams. The other one is not so much concerned with the relation of dream and meaning, of dream and reality, it rather concentrates on trying to find means of representation for this extremely productive force that determines our sleep. The essays collected in this book explore both attempts. They follow debates in philosophy and psychoanalysis and they study literature, theatre, dance, film, and photography.
Once again, I present in poetic form a volume of my thoughts and feelings covering many aspects of life and a wide variety of subjects. Throughout my 95 years, I witnessed the inestimable marvelous progress of the twentieth century; some can be noted within this book. I am forever grateful for the experiences. Recalling wonders of the past and expressing hope for the future provided substance for much of the content. I've found keeping one's mind alert, hands busy, swiftly time passes, pleasure endures. Peruse the pages for fun, relaxation, inspiration, meditation, whatever ... enjoy the ride.
