True stories from Brendon Burchard, F. Murray Abraham, and other high-profile contributors on the turning points that changed their lives. Can one moment, one brief encounter, change the course of the rest of your life? If so, how will you recognize that moment? Will you let it pass you by? Will you let it defeat you? Or will you allow that moment, that experience, to help shape who you are and who you might become? Moments of Being reveals true stories that altered lives forever. Join celebrities, athletes, business and community leaders, and men and women from all walks of life as they share their amazing “twist of fate” tales. These are stories of courage, destiny, reunions, love, sacrifice, dreams, and the fears and triumphs that are an integral part of the human experience. More than that, they illustrate that, by recognizing and acting on a single, pivotal moment, a person can change his or her life forever. “A fabulous wake-up call . . . a must read.” —Donna LeBlanc, author of The Passion Principle

Virginia Woolf's only autobiographical writing is to be found in this collection of five unpublished pieces. Despite Quentin Bell's comprehensive biography and numerous recent studies of her, the author's own account of her early life holds new fascination - for its unexpected detail, the strength of its emotion, and its clear-sighted judgement of Victorian values. In 'Reminiscences' Virginia Woolf focuses on the death of her mother, 'the greatest disaster that could happen', and its effect on her father, the demanding patriarch who took a high toll of the women in his household. She surveys some of the same ground in 'A Sketch of the Past', the most important memoir in this collection, which she wrote with greater detachment and supreme command of her art shortly before her death. Readers will be struck by the extent to which she drew on these early experiences for her novels, as she tells how she exorcised the obsessive presence of her mother by writing To the Lighthouse. The last three papers were composed to be read to the Memoir Club, a postwar regrouping of Bloomsbury, which exacted absolute candour of its members. Virginia Woolf's contributions were not only bold but also original and amusing. She describes George Duckworth's passionate efforts to launch the Stephen girls; gives her own version of 'Old Bloomsbury'; and, with wit and some malice, reflects on her connections with titled society.

I have a deeply hidden and inarticulate desire for something beyond the daily life. -Virginia Woolf Maybe I just am- Or waiting to become. This collection of prose-like poetry portrays the moments of being and becoming that have materialized from the clear-eyed perspective of a child. It urges the reader to take the time to look around and notice how everything old is enveloped in a sense of newness. It paints a picture of a timeless state and stateless time, where nothing manages to escape the undoing of the past and yet everything becomes tinted with the undertones of change unfolding before the poets gaze. Places traveled. A home lost and several homes found. The foreign and the familiar. Sights. Smells. Sunsets. The names and the faces behind them. These poems embody the search for peace in the heart of chaos, a sense of calm in the wake of turbulence, and a center from the margins at best. These moments shared find the poet and reader at a crossroads where the soul is satisfied and kept vital only when it is given the chance to explore both the old in the new and the new in the old. May these moments fuel your search as you seek to find your own, set out to be and become. Keep looking and keep searching, for it is your findings that flow into the vast oceans of our collective being-a timeless state that transcends the daily life.
