A very little boy stood upon a heap of gravel for the honor of Rum Alley. He was throwing stones at howling urchins from Devils Row who were circling madly about the heap and pelting at him. His infantile countenance was livid with fury. His small body was writhing in the delivery of great, crimson oaths. Run, Jimmie, run! Deyll get yehs, screamed a retreating Rum Alley child. Naw, responded Jimmie with a valiant roar, dese micks cant make me run. Howls of renewed wrath went up from Devils Row throats. Tattered gamins on the right made a furious assault on the gravel heap. On their small, convulsed faces there shone the grins of true assassins. As they charged, they threw stones and cursed in shrill chorus. The little champion of Rum Alley stumbled precipitately down the other side. His coat had been torn to shreds in a scuffle, and his hat was gone. He had bruises on twenty parts of his body, and blood was dripping from a cut in his head. His wan features wore a look of a tiny, insane demon. On the ground, children from Devils Row closed in on their antagonist. He crooked his left arm defensively about his head and fought with cursing fury. The little boys ran to and fro, dodging, hurling stones and swearing in barbaric trebles. From a window of an apartment house that upreared its form from amid squat, ignorant stables, there leaned a curious woman. Some laborers, unloading a scow at a dock at the river, paused for a moment and regarded the fight. The engineer of a passive tugboat hung lazily to a railing and watched. Over on the Island, a worm of yellow convicts came from the shadow of a building and crawled slowly along the rivers bank. A stone had smashed into Jimmies mouth. Blood was bubbling over his chin and down upon his ragged shirt. Tears made furrows on his dirt-stained cheeks. His thin legs had begun to tremble and turn weak, causing his small body to reel. His roaring curses of the first part of the fight had changed to a blasphemous chatter.
Have you ever found yourself thinking your way into a tangle of fret, frustration, or gloom? And then something small - a few kind words, the sun glancing through the clouds, a warm cup of tea - gave you a welcome pause from all your inner chatter? With Making Friends with Your Mind, that´s what Pema Chödrön helps us to do, not by chance but with our full intention: to stop fighting with our thoughts and reopen ourselves to wonder as naturally as we breathe. The Buddha saw that the human experience is full of drama: confusion and conviction, joy and sorrow, success and failure - and that our minds love to amplify all of it. ´´We decide somebody or something is a certain way,´´ muses Pema Chödrön, ´´and then that judgment gets frozen and fixated, long after things change. And things always change, right?´´ In these free-spirited sessions, Ani Pema helps you to bring awareness to those inflexible thoughts and sticking points. Through meditations, daily practices, and the kind of simple pointers that can change our lives, you´ll learn that it is entirely possible to return to the flow and freedom of your experiences - and to find your way each day closer to a place of unconditional friendliness with yourself and with those in need. 1.

Now 20 years old, she still longs for a place that she can truly call home.

Little Good Boy had just finished eating the last of five rice cakes called dango, that had been strung on a skewer of bamboo and dipped in soy sauce, when he said to his little sister, called Chrysanthemum: O-Kiku, it is soon the great festival of the New Year. What shall we do then? asked little O-Kiku, not clearly remembering the festival of the previous year. Thus questioned, Yoshi-san had his desired opening to hold forth on the coming delights, and he replied: Men will come the evening before the great feast-day and help Plum-blossom, our maid, to clean all the house with brush and broom. Others will set up the decoration in front of our honored gateway. They will dig two small holes and plant a gnarled, black-barked father-pine branch on the left, and the slighter reddish mother-pine branch on the right. They will then put with these the tall knotted stem of a bamboo, with its smooth, hard green leaves that chatter when the wind blows. Next they will take a grass rope, about as long as a tall man, fringed with grass, and decorated with zigzag strips of white paper.
Lisa Montgomery would meet Bobbie Joe Stinnett in an online chat room called ´´Ratter Chatter´´ under the pretext that she wanted to purchase a rat terrier puppy from her. But what she really wanted from the pregnant Bobbie Joe was her baby. Lisa would arrive at the Stinnett home and strangle the young woman unconscious before cutting out the baby from her stomach with a kitchen knife. She would then showcase the baby around her small town, introducing her as ´´Abigail´´. Investigative authorities would find out that Lisa would suffer from what psychiatrists called ´´pseudocyemesis´´. A psychological delusion where the subject believes she is pregnant. The gruesome crime would shock the town of Skidmore, Missouri with its population of only 300 people. Once a community where they could keep their doors unlocked at night, the townsfolk would never be the same. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sangita Chauhan.
